There comes a time in your life when you know what you are doing means something to people around you.
When we got the call to say that we were picked to go to Canadian music week we honestly though without government or music industry funding it was going to be another opportunity that was going to pass us by. With the great help of our manager Ema Nosurak and our label Jalapeno everything we have done to date has been for the most part done in house until we put the call out to you, our amazing friends and fans.
We can’t express enough the gratitude we have for the unbelievable support you have given us in reaching our crowdfunding total. Your generosity has not only got us over to Canada but it has also made us believe with fans like you we can go onto great things. We spend our lives on the road and for us as a band a lot of you have become personal friends. You proved that with a solid set of loyal fans that believe in you, anything is possible.
Thank you all

The Palace of Arts building in Newcastle’s Exhibition Park has been given a loving make over by Wylam Brewery, and we’ve been asked to curate a series of live gigs cunningly titled NARC. In The Park!
We’re pulling together eclectic line-ups for our summer concerts, featuring some of the best North East talent around. Kicking things off in funky style on Saturday 4th June will be a headline slot from Northern funk behemoths Smoove & Turrell, plus the alt. indie rock joy of Street Party In Soho, luscious synth pop from Fractions and electronic collective Grey Tapes.
On Saturday 23rd July we’ve got an eclectic range of melodic indie and quirky electronics to whet your whistle, including headliners The Lake Poets, alt. pop band The Great Curve, quirk-pop multi-instrumentalist The Shooting Of and the horror-fuelled loop folk of Nathalie Stern. Plus there’s more to be announced for August, put Saturday 20th in your diary!
The events will be all day affairs, with specially selected NARC. DJs spinning the tunes between the acts – DJ Mariam Rezaei is first up in June, with Endless Window’s Mark Corcoran-Lettice taking on July’s duties – there’s street food and lots of Wylam-curated booze on offer too. Given the venue’s lovely location, it’s a prime opportunity to make a day of it!
