Last Wednesday we aired 'Moleskin Mountain Boots' on JH's new audio/visual show Hooops . 'MMB' is kind of like a mixtape, a collection of demos and sounds we have been working on (for quite some time now). It was mixed together by JH. These demos and sounds are currently being recorded by us. These mixes and the video of the Hooops show won't be uploaded or played again. If you missed it, sorry. Maybe one day in the distant future they'll turn up?

While it was being broadcast JH was being streamed live - painting the artwork for the 'mixtape' (above), typing the tracklist (below), projecting different backdrops, cutting between different images, pretending to be a duck, and generally bumming around. There was a slight problem early on when his computer crashed (probably due to his face being on the screen) but we overcame that hiccup and the rest of the show went well. There are a load of photos, screengrabs and live chat from the show below. Keep your eye out for future Hooop shows!

Hardsparrow blogged about it all HERE & HERE. Henners blogged about it HERE.
