After 10 years together in various guises, THE LETTER (widescreen rock action from The North) have decided to call time on this particular chapter in their lives. HOWEVER, death is not the end and before the re-birth comes a massive celebratory gig at SHAKESPEARES on April 14th that will encompass all the stages in their ‘career’ AND will see the launch of their first (and last) album ‘UNKNOWN FAILURES’.
Shaped over a decade, the LP will feature old favorites alongside four brand new songs.
The final live fling will be an hour long show of our fave tunes and we are honored to have PISCO SOUR HOUR bringing up the rear.
If you are unfamiliar with these local legends, they describe themselves as:
“4 bourgeois idiots, flailing with instruments in a rudimentary, yet somewhat verbose manner”
We would describe them as XTC meets The Fall meets The Partridge Family
(or ‘fecking good’ in simpler terms).
Doors will open at 8pm but if you’ve not been to Shakespeares (Gibraltar Street, near the Law Courts) before or it you’ve not been since it re-opened, get down early as it’s a top-drawer boozer with plenty of interesting beverages to get stuck into!
Door tax will be mere £4, so join us for a rock & roll wake of epic proportions!
Hello! We’ll be joining the lovely Denzil Watson on his Indie Hour on Tuesday 31st Jan from 9pm. We’ll be chatting and playing some choice cuts. Tune in in the Sheffield area on 93.2 FM or listen online at http://www.sheffieldlive.org/
We are pleased to announce that we now have CD copies of the album for sale. You can order directly from the website, or if you know us and are going to bump into us soon – give us a shout. CDs are priced at the very reasonable £5 each + £1 postage and packaging. For that you get – a shiny CD, fold out Eco Kraft card CD case and 6 (count em) double sided, lovingly illustrated lyric sheets on quality Eco Kraft stock. Look how lovely they are:
Pisco Sour Hour featuring the awesome Dave Woodcock on vocals. Dave co-write the song. It appears on our recent album – “A Hammer to the Camera Lens”, currently available on iTunes and in a physical format very soon.
We’re very pleased to announce that you can now buy our new album, A Hammer to the Camera Lens right now from iTunes. To be honest we were taken by surprise as we were told the process would take at least a month, when it actually took two days. This is why you will have to wait a several weeks if your preferred format is CD (of which there will be limited numbers, and might actually be a couple of quid cheaper, depending on how many we make). However, if it is MP3 goodness you are after, then fill your boots.
