Here’s another Aunt Thally tea and thallium cupcakes pic to keep your appetites whet.
Our studio producer Neill Duncan, is busy working the desks on a recording project in Abbey Rd, London!
We’re itching to get working on the new EP… just have to pause for a breath and wait for Neil to stop schlepping around the famous studios of the world.
The Crowd-fund project was a massive success! Thanks folks: We’ll get started soon!
Our Pozible EP fundraiser project winds up this evening. We’re currently way past our original target… might be able to record some extra tracks, or even look at some video! A big thank you and lots of love to all those awesome people who’ve laid their money down to make it happen 🙂
If you still haven’t popped in for a cuppa at our Aunt Thally crowd-funding site now is the your last chance! There’s a link at the bottom of the page
Here’s a pic from last night’s celebration gig at the Paragon: Ian bringing the rock; Maizy bringing the love; Paddy unable to stand still; and off-screen: Skye holding it all down on the bass. Thanks to our gold class guest Amy Tyson for this pic
Momentus Tempest and Julien Joel Clement (with Tim and Danae) were brilliant. Big thanks to you guys too!
…click here to go to the pozible site. They’ve just ‘upgraded’ the site, so you could try on a phone or iPad if the desktop gets sluggish… sorry about that!
These little guys are handmade from felt and folk festival wristbands. The cutest band-merch ever! They’ve been an early hit as a reward for joining our crowd funding campaign to pre-order copies of our new EP… but there’s still 6 more available!
