Nice little surprise for us this morning in the post, we’re not really sure what “Electro/Disco-Punk” is but we’ll give anything a try twice!!! Cheers DJ Mag.

We also get a mention in 2007′s Players Of The Year, we are back from the dead apparently but nice to get some props for work old and new. Click here to read the little mention.
And to round it all off, here’s a load of cuttings from things we’ve been involved in one way or another – Click.
We had a great day out at the festival and Gawble Vianag is now featured on the CD Comp of the event, not sure of the release date yet but as soon as we find out any info we’ll post it up.
We’ve no idea what the sun is doing out in Sheffield in September but it’s most welcome. August was a strange one for us and was sealed off with the gig a Connect. We had a great time and it’s always good to catch up with the Soma crew and we finally got to meet our friends from the Rubens, always good to put a face to a email address – Wotcha Mark/Gordon If you haven’t checked out the Rubens yet Click Here.
The gig went well but we felt it could have gone better on some of the newer stuff we dropped, it’s always this way when you start to play out your new tracks, all the what “ifs” and there’s no harder crowd than a festival crowd to do in front of – why we do it to ourselves I’ve no idea but it seems to be our way these days – It always more interesting to push yourself than take the easy way out. We chilled out with Nathan Fake before heading back to lovely grey Sheffield.
We’ve finally completed the remix for the Vector Lovers track Hush over the weekend, so that’s winging its way to be mastered at the moment – as soon as we have the release details we’ll put them up.
Work continues on the album and it looks like we may just hit our target and deliver it on time, which will be a first for us!!!! As mentioned somewhere else on the blog, the 12″ version of Floods is sat waiting to go – anyway back to it, see you in Manchester or Dublin if you can make it.
The Cost 12″ is out on promo at the moment, as we’ve mentioned before – Simon Francis down at Masterpiece has done a fantastic job on remastering the tracks, they are really warm and full but they still have that punch. Here’s the track listing for this 12:
A1 Cost I (5:05)
A2 Cost II (6:30)
B1 The Actor And Audience (5:17)
B2 Sharp Shooting On Saturn (6:39)
Total lockdown!!! After dealing the with the floods and the expense of replacing our cars and the studio block being closed down by Health?& Safety?we are now in a position to finally finish our new album Radio Scarecrow for Soma. For the next 4 weeks we’ll be locked in the studio working on nothing but the album, the machines are fired up and we have over 25 tracks to mix down to build the new album with - most of which have been road-tested at our recent gigs. See you on the other side, we’ll announce the release date on September 23rd.
The new masters for Temple of Transparent Balls are finally back?and sounding very phat indeed. Soma have this and a 4 track 12″ slated for release in October – more news and the artwork from the dust studio?crew to follow.
The new 12″, Floods V2, has been submitted to Soma, this 12 comes with a remixes from?Birmingham’s finest Surgeon and a new dubstep artist from Sheffield called The Bass Soldier (he’s only 17 as well!!!). The album (Radio Scarecrow) is well on its way to being finished in mid-September and if we can get our act together a tour to support it. The remix for the Vector Lovers is coming along nicely and Slam’s Azure is sat waiting to be bitten really hard next.
As well as working on the new album we’ve been busy work on 3 remixes. The first is a remix of the Q track from this release, not sure of the release date on this one yet but as soon as we know we’ll post up the info. The second remix is for the fantastic Rubens from Glasgow, we selected the Breaking Into Smile track from thier album Carnivalesque. The third is for the Vector Lovers, taken from the new album due for release on Soma pretty soon.
As you probably know version 1 was released on this CD Comp on Dust Science, we are just putting the finishing touches to the 12 minute version and waiting for a remix from The Bass Soldier before the release will be ready. The mighty Surgeon has already completed his remix, which has been going down really well at gigs. More news to follow…
