DAMNABLY NOVEMBER NEWSLAUGHTER

Hello Everyone!

We've been pretty busy of late with was 5 tours in 6 weeks, promoting 8 gigs around the UK and hatching an album. Here is the lofi news.

Shonen Knife rocked with smallgang/FU on a 24 date tour of the UK, Ireland and Europe-reaching Tromso at the very tip of Norway and along the way playing with the BMX Bandits in Glasgow for the first time in 20 years. Click HERE for a video of Shonen Knife & the BMX Bandit's playing 'Top Of The World' together in the key of C as an encore. Here is Shonen Knife & smallgang pulling end-of-tour rock faces.

The band also played Belgium for the first time in 19 years, and played a cracking session on Marc Riley's BBC 6 Music show. A limited number of Shonen Knife (new design) T Shirts are left over from the tour and will be on sale in our shop soon. Here is Emi playing the bespoke and beautiful Canopus drums the company kindly sent over for Damnably.

Celeb Watch

Wussy from Cincinnati & American Werewolf Academy from Dallas made a load of fans and friends as they toured the UK for the first time, taking in a lot of castles and even the Dr. Who museum, plus Wussy did a session on Mark Riley's BBC6 Music show to boot. Josh T Pearson came along to the Damnably 6th Birthday gig to see Wussy and Megadeath's Marty Friedman, Ginger from the Wildhearts, Gordon Keen of Captain America and Eugene Kelly of the Vasalines all popped up on the Shonen Knife tour.

New Releases

Chris Brokaw's 'Gambler's Ecstasy' album was released to critical acclaim (8.5/10 in The Line Of Best Fit no less) and is available now in our shop, and in all good record stores, and online retailers worldwide. It is a great, heart-excavating album with some very complex and clever songs as well as just being kick ass rocking ones. Chris promises to tour Europe some time in 2013 hopefully with a full band. You can listen to Danny Borracho and Criminals from the album HERE.
