The Lonely Irishman

It’s with great pleasure, after a bloody lovely Premiere evening at Molly Malones in Hitchin last night, that we can officially unveil our new video! It’s a new song from our still-being-written second album… A folk song with traditional Irish influences about the lonely cliche drunken Irishman in most local bars and pubs, and why you should make the effort to speak to them and find out about their rich and varied lives. So without further ado, I give you, THE LONELY IRISHMAN:

Mitch Benn Plays Us Again!

It’s difficult to brag (or indeed, even to be proud of yourself) when you’re in a band that primarily exists to take the piss, but proud we are, because that lovely chap Mitch Benn has once more deemed us fit to grace his comedy podcast.  Cheers mate!


Listen to it here.

Inappropriate Eastenders

In leu of any new SONGS, we made a video of what Eastenders might look like as a sitcom.

We weren’t allowed to put this up on Youtube, so thought we’d put it here instead… All copyright is owned by the BBC (which we love.)

Spandex Ballet Appears On Mitch Benn’s Comedy Podcast

Spandex Ballet are as proud as a small toddler with his first hard-on to announce that we’ve been included in Mitch Benn’s (yup, he of Radio 4′s The Now Show, with Leon’s adolescent comedy heroes, Punt & Dennis fame) first podcast of 2011. We sent him a few tracks on the off-chance, & he seemed to dig them, including Wood vs Evil & Spanish Phrasebook. There’s a bunch of funny shit on the ‘cast, so download & chortle on.

Have a listen here!

New Material!

Yes, that’s right folks. SB have been working hard today to write some brand spanking new songs for you all. We don’t want to give too much away, but I can assure you there’s something for everyone. They include ‘Googy Gaggy Baby’, our own take on Eurovision, and a song about call centres. And they say Radiohead are eclectic.

You’ll be able to hear some of the new material at Hitchin’s Mostly Comedy at the George (visit www.doggettandephgrave.co.uk for info) and of course this year’s Rhythms of the World Festival (more info at www.rotw.org.uk).

Seeya soon.
Chris and Leon.
