We’re playing tonight at Catch, 22 Kingsland Road (clever). We have played there so many times that the bar staff roll their eyes when we turn up. Lots of other bands playing (“as per”) and Blood Red Shoes DJing (not “as per”) after our set. It’s going to be good. Craig designed the poster and we’ll have special riso printed versions of the posters to sell at the gig and maybe online afterwards.
Please note: Our next gig after this is on Halloween at a little place called “Catch” on Kingsland Road. We will be playing a bunch of Fugazi songs, which means we will be appealing (or annoying) a wider demographic of people than ever before.

Yes! Two stupidly named Bedford bands unite to release a split 7″ single! Our side contains a couple of tracks ‘Accept the Mystery’ and a new song I’ll post about separately.
For those who haven’t heard Council Tax Band before, they contain ex-Das Wanderlust members and rule with synth and spite. We invited them to play their first ever gig for our Bedford show on the last tour and we shall lead them down the aisle again to release this split seven inch record with them.
You can pre-order the record now from our label, Lost Toys Records for a paltry £4.

This Friday, Bedfordians are lucky enough to have Bo Ningen playing Bedford Esquire’s “Holy Moly’s” venue and we have been lucky enough to be asked to support. Click the flyer for more details.
Those who saw us with Council Tax Band at Cakey Muto earlier this month will know that Craig fractured his hip. He’s still broken (break it more?) and should be able to stand up but don’t expect much movement! Shucks! x

Incubate have announced that we, Ice Sea Dead People, will be playing their festival on 21st September. Which is true.
We’re really excited to be going back to the Netherlands and playing a festival lots of people were talking to us about whilst we were there, especially with a line up this good, amongst bands like A Place to Bury Strangers, Tim Hecker, Wolf Eyes, Black Pus, Shonen Knife, Man Forever, Built to Spill, etc.
More info about Incubate Festival and line-up available here:
P.S. Oh yeah, this means we’ll be touring Europe from 20th–28th of September!!!

Our new bloody album, ‘If It’s Broken, Break It More’, (due out on Monday April 22nd) got reviewed by NME and Kerrang this week.
We’ve also just uploaded the album to the Lost Toys Bandcamp where you can stream a new song from the album, ‘Accept the Mystery’. If you pre-order the album now you get 3 tracks from the album straight away and the rest on April 22nd.
NME dumped a big fat 8 on our noise:
We also got our first ever mention in Kerrang! magazine who gave us 3 Ks:
More to come, hopefully!
Also we’ll be posting something about our tour very soon, thanks to everyone who bought merch and to the promoters for being so great (especially the Europeans!)
