Holy crap it’s been a long time since i’ve been on this thing, (I have never used the expression ‘holy crap’ in my life but it feels appropriate for the life changing blog that follows… I can see Sean has been hogging all the limelight on this thing.. and let me tell you now that ain’t going to fly no more.. anyway back to the blog). First of all we are playing at Buffalo Bar next to Highbury and Islington station this Saturday and it will be brilliant. The promoter is one of our favourites and always puts on a decent night of excellent bands and debauchery, PLUS the Spoons next door has a beautiful backdrop with colourful characters to match and fully caters for all your Jaeger Bomb needs. Expect a myriad of new tunes and a couple of old favourites. Get your Facebook on here:
So yes we have been writing loads of new tunes recently and I occasionally record them on a pimped out dictaphone type thing that captures the mess beautifully, see results below. Some are new songs for potential release, some are part of a proposed EP that tells the tale of a fictional character called Elliot Strange which would contain my particular favourite track which is a noisy triptych called Paint it by Numbers and it seems to have an effect not dissimilar to Marmite on the crowd. Personally I think the repetitive E6/b9?% is reminiscent of the shrill finale of Shostakovich’s 5th Symphony.. maybe just in my head?
On much less pretentious note our favorite thing to come out of Birmingham since heavy metal are called Bombers and are very good or as Artrocker has described em: ‘The Birthday Party running riot in Joy Division’s and Swans back garden’. They have started a club night in their home town called 88mph, so if you are from the midlands check it out and check them out.
We will hopefully be venturing to play the night in the coming months which will probably be around the same time as we release some of these new tunes which will probably mean doing some UK touring again which will DEFINITELY mean more van times. With this realization and foresight I have decided to take it upon myself (with absolutely no permission or communication with the rest of the band as I know what their reaction will be.. maybe apart from Ben, Ben’s alright actually) to design the next tour bus with the finest snapshots of Mr. Springsteen.

Ok that’s it
