Monk Bretton is sadly cancelled, but we've added an extra
show at the Cropredy fringe, at Field 8 on Sunday 13th August at 10am! It'll be
a Treebeard-esque 'acoustic' show, unlike the Brasenose, which will be full-fat
We've also added two shows in October with Quasar in Hull on
9th and with Harmony of Spheres in Rotherham on 15th, check out our
gig guide for details &
We've got a busy summer ahead!
We've just celebrated our 44th anniversary with a
show at the Greystones in Sheffield, (check out the livestream
here) and have
confirmed two shows for June - O'Riley's in Hull with Ghost of the
Machine on Sunday 12th June and the Cambridge Rock Festival on Saturday 18th
June, 11am on the main stage. Check out our
gig guide for details &
Then we're playing the Monk Bretton Prog Picnic on Saturday
6th August and the Duck & Drake in Leeds on Sunday 7th, before heading to

Going into the end of the year, we've got shows at Danfest in
Leicester, the 1865 Club in Southampton and a Christmas show at the Greystones
in Sheffield. More details soon!
We played 4 new songs at the 44th anniversary 'Not Alone',
'Waters Rising', 'Flight Behaviour' and 'Parasite', with a lot more new songs in
the works, so it might not be quite as long a wait as usual for the next album!
On the other hand...

40th anniversary CD &DVD
I'm now taking advance orders for the 40th anniversary double
live CD &DVD. We are multitrack recording both the Sheffield and Southampton
shows, professionally videoing the Sheffield show, and videoing Southampton
ourselves. So the DVD will probably be of the Sheffield show, and the double CD
a 'best of' both shows, but I won't know for sure, 'til we've played them! We
also have an exclusive live DVD of our Birmingham University 1985 gig including
previously unseen footage from our appearance at the UK Electronica festival at
Sheffield University in 1984 and our studio video of 'Ophelia' from 1986. We've
only produced 100 copies &it will be available free with all orders of the 40th
anniversary CD/DVD at a discounted advance price of £20 for all three! I'm
hoping to have the 40th anniversary CDs &DVD ready for the Rotherham gig on
Saturday 4th August, if you're coming to the Sheffield or Southampton gigs you
can order it then &pick up the bonus DVD at the gig. Check out all our
40th anniversary tickets!
