WHACKED BY PILLOW


New stuff is coming along nicely.

TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS

Turn off your mind, relax and blah blah blah..

FRUIT vs FUDGE

Either way it's bye bye to the Lucazade sponsor we've had for the past year.

CAVEMAN


Boonbeans took part in the Southville Arts Trail last week. Read about it and see all the paintings and photos HERE & HERE.

R.I.P SAFETYWORD

Probably our favourite Bristol band Safetyword split up at the weekend. We're really upset about it. We loved them zany boys! Read Boonbeans' take on the split over HERE.

LIGHTEN UP THE MOOD WITH A HAIRCUT

Here we are fairly recently going through some new songs, one of which is called 'The Barber Shop'..





Boonbeans has started another photo blog (for his personal pics..not that kind!!) where you might occasionally see a worm or two. CLICK HERE to visit BEANSNAPS!

SWEET DREAMS

Now this IS news!! Suzi from Bristol band You & The Atom Bomb had a dream about us last night. She posted it on a forum..

"I had a dream last night i was onstage performing with olo worms, and i was worried that my skirt was too short so kept having to stand with my back against the back wall of the stage, but the gig went well, particularly when i pretended with james that his chip that he was eating was a guero by making a noise like a guero with a yoyo. weird. it was in a large seated hall and we were all standing around 2 tables pushed together covered in synths, but crispy seaweed was annoyed cos i kept changing the sound on his synth! but the yoyo saved the day and put me back in his good books!"

RIDE WIT ME


Later today the artist formally known as Boonbeans will be painting random stuff in the dark in an old garage on top of a BMW. Beat that! I was asked to do this by Conway & Young, the owners of the shop/house 254 Coronation Road (Bristol). They will be opening their shop/house up for the Southville Arts Trail. I start the mess at 1pm. Drop by and shine a light.

THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY

Peoples been shootin' their mouths off! We handle ourselves. No qualms.

The Good
A letter in last week's Venue magazine..


The Bad
A comment left on the Drowned In Sound forum (don't ask what i was doing on that). Below is how i imagine Zapsta lives his life (slagging off bands from the top of his indie castle)..


The Ugly
A podcast about Fence Records (we get played about half way through). A strange one this. Mr Toad starts off by saying he doesn't like us then by the end sounds like he's our biggest fan?? I Think he's confused himself. Listen to the whole podcast by going over to his blog.

Listen to an edited audio clip of him drunkenly rambling on about us ..

OLO RADIO ADVERT 5 (Starring Steve Mason & Les Bell)

Below is the new OLO Radio advert starring Steve Mason (Black Affair) & Les Bell (Old Jock Radio).

It was filmed at The Fence Collective's 2008 Homegame Festival in Scotland. The music in the background is The Pictish Trail playing live. The chat at the end is taken from the Old Jock Radio show (3/4/08) .



Do make sure you do check out and tune into OLD JOCK RADIO, it's one of the reasons we started our radio station up.
