Out of hibernation...

Hello all.

Trust everyone had a festive christmas, and a relaxed new years...

Today, the suitcases were zipped up once more, and, breaking with our usual tradition of Glasgow Airport, met up at Glasgow's more ground-based, Central Station, where we jumped on the train to Birmingham. We're actually delayed by 20 minutes, so I figured I'd use the time to say hello...

After we visit a radio station in Birmingham, where the boys will perform some acoustic songs to a little audience of competition winners, we will continue down to London, to the lovely hotel in Soho, that has become our second home over the past 6 months... I probably shouldn't name it though. Just in case.

We're spending a week in London, doing various TV, Radio and Press things. Excitingly, we're going into the House of Commons on Thursday evening, where again, they'll play a little acoustic set to some competition winners, fans and (apparently) some MPs...

I'm going to refrain from making some sort of joke about us being the most popular Scottish people in Parliament on that day, after previous statements of similar 'scurrilous gossip' content have landed squarely as "news" in the odd tabloid or website. But I'm thinking it.

Its exciting, and we are going to try and get into Big Ben. The clock, incidentally, not Ben who sells our merch sometimes. I'd like to attempt to recreate the climatic scenes of Basil the Great Mouse Detective, personally.

We're also going into both Radio 2 (to visit Dermot) and Radio 4 (on Loose Ends, alongside John Hurt and Emelia Fox) - what's that sound? Its the sound of sophistication...

We will get slightly less sophisticated on Monday, when the band plug themselves back in, and play a tiny little show, somewhere in south London, for our friends at XFM... I think we've got a few tickets to give away for that one actually...

any takers?

right. we're about to arrive in Brum, so i'd best go and wake up the three slumbering musicians scattered around me...

Happy New Year!

    Hey Guys ! I Was wondering how come you lot don't do a GIG around Wolverhampton or Birmingham ? ... Oh BTW me and my mate had a wager. I said to him "I bet you i can get some kind of reply off the band." and he said "You should ask for tickets for the bristol show. Be cheeky and ask for Backstage passes" Hmmm I should do that. But however it would be quite rude and i probs wouldn't get them even if i did ask. But it's woth a shot. Can I have tickets to you bristol gig? PLEASE ... Him and i are Skint .. You must have known the feeling in some past life.

    Thankfully I have 2 tickets for the Perth gig in April. I do have one small issue though ... I want to take my daughter who's a huge Biffy Fan, the trouble is she's only 8 - tickets say over 14's ... what do you suggest I do? Phone the venue or could something sneaky be arranged?
