so. we're releasing a new single on november 9th. which is only a couple of weeks away now. it's called the summer of a dormouse and it's coming out on the rough trade shop's very own for us label. it's available as a limited edition seven inch and there are only five hundred of them and it's only available from the rough trade shop and the cover has a drawing of a dormouse enjoying its summer holidays on it. click the link to buy. hurry now.
don't worry if you don't live in the uk, the rough trade shop have a fantastic mail order department that will happily ship it to you anywhere in the world. it comes backed with our version of the another sunny day classic, i'm in love with a girl who doesn't know i exist.
the a side is also included on the new rough trade shops indie pop 09 compilation, which has got twenty four other songs on. and it's amazing. so if you haven't got a record player then you should probably buy that. the b side is only available on the seven inch though. probably best to buy both anyway. click the link to buy the cd.
we'll put the summer of a dormouse up on myspace and facebook and that in the next couple of days for you to listen to.
we hope you like it when we do.
“when one subtracts from life infancy (which is vegetation), sleep, eating and swilling, buttoning and unbuttoning - how much remains of downright existence?
the summer of a dormouse.”

i was a dj last night for a while. upstairs at the heavenly social. it's their birthday this month. they're ten. i don't think my dj set went too badly. apart from perhaps when i played kenickie's version of save your kisses for me. someone came up and looked at me like i was mental. i think he thought i was playing the original. his reaction threw me slightly. i didn't dare play tracey ullman after that. my cds starting skipping between songs at one point too, which was a bit embarrassing. it jumped from i can't get no satisfaction (thank god) by talulah gosh straight into vivid youth, which sounded a bit mad. hopefully people just thought i was doing some clever cassette boy style cut ups though.
anyway, in the end i had a very enjoyable evening, and i even got to see a bit of saint etienne playing downstairs. i only saw a couple of songs because obviously i'm a dj and i have responsibilities to my dancefloor, so i couldn't leave my turntables for too long, but it was great to see them in such a small venue. they were playing the whole of their new foxbase beta album which richard x has remixed. it's pretty much foxbase alpha with extra handclaps and a bit more sparkly, but it's still lovely to have an excuse to listen to it again. not that you should need an excuse.
anyway, hopefully one day i might get to be a dj again. and until then i'll just keep pretending and hope that someone somewhere might be listening.
ps. click here for something fun to buy. i'll write more about it next week, but i'm excited about it and i couldn't wait.
