NO WEBSITE UPDATES IN EARLY 2016
It's not that we didn't have anything to report. Just that our web-updating capabilities were quite broken. All our shows in early 2016, not to mention St. Patrick's Day, sailed totally by this website quite unseen. Ah well, if you were there, as quite a lot of you were, I'm sure you'll remember it just as well as we do. Thanks!

The Girl From the North-EP SOLD OUT
It's all gone. Finished. Kaput. The two original editions of our debut release are all sold out and at the moment we have no plans to print a third. All that exists now is the digital version. Download yours on CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon or a shitload of other online stores, or if you prefer just stream it nonstop on your Spotify.
Last Remaining EP's For Sale
The good folks at CD Baby sent us a message that the 4 remaining copies of our debut release, The Girl From the North -EP will be destroyed if they're not sold ASAP. Being as we'd hate to see a perfectly good CD go to waste we're offering them at a reduced bargain (8$). These are the last known four copies of the 1st limited run from 2008, guaranteed to become a coveted collector's item. Damn, we really should be asking more for these. Get yours now from CD Baby!

Started Mixing the Album
In early February the first mixes for "Tipperary..." were heard. It's starting to resemble something resembling recorded music. Sneak previews are coming and we'll also be taking pre-orders soon.
