5ive

Who would've thought that drinking loads of pear cider would give you a banging head the next morning? Weird.

This week I've been keeping a close eye on the midweek charts as they're announced each morning to see where ex-BSM favourite Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly and his new album are. It's been a running battle between him and Oxford's The Young Knives, with the Knives taking the lead for the first time this morning, edging ahead into 17th spot by just 5 sales. Five sales?! So I guess this is an appeal to all of you who read this - including you two from Peru, I've still got my eye on you! - who haven't yet purchased the album but have been thinking about it to make the right choice. I shouldn't think it costs all that much via itunes and is a good listen.

In other 2nd album news, Secondsmile's was mastered yesterday. The duties were handled by Greg Calbi who has previously worked with David Bowie, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Sonic Youth, Mogwai and a whole heap of other amazing artists. Check out the full list here. We're going to put a couple of new tracks up online in about 3 weeks time. I think y'all gonna enjoy.

And continuing the theme of related news items... The long sold out Secondsmile EP, 'I Am Not Romeo, You Are Not Juliet' is available again, but only digitally. Click here to purchase via itunes. The CD features their old vocalist, Olly Goodland, and is much more along the lines of Thursday, At The Drive-In, Refused etc than their 2006 album, 'Walk Into The Light And Reach For The Sky'.
