We’re going to do our first local gig for AGES at Cadence Cafe in Tyldesley.
After that, the next thing we’re doing is an actual, proper, real band release.
We can’t give too much away, but there will be TWO new music videos, along with a physical round thing with music on that ISN’T a CD.
COME TO THE GIG AND WE’LL GIVE YOU A KISS ON THE MOUTH.
Here’s a little treat for you to print off and put by your beds.
We’ve got loads of exciting stuff waiting to happen, I know we’ve been a bit quiet lately, but there’s a very exciting, good, proper reason for it.
LOVE TO ALL OF YOU.
We’re headlining a festival, man. Feels mint to say that.
‘Who’s headlining that festival?’
‘The Lottery Winners!’
‘Sod that then’.
9:45pm Stage Time!
Yesterday I sat on a panel at a music industry convention to talk about being in a band.
Alongside me were famous producers, record label owners and the manager of bands like the Pixies and the Fratellis.
I used to be the boy at the back of the room at things like this, scribbling notes into my pad, and now I’m ON THE BLOODY PANEL. Crazy.
GULLIVERS – NOT A SUMMER FESTIVAL – MANCHESTER – TOMORROW NIGHT – 9:45 STAGE TIME.
Anybody going to Phoenix Nights live, know that while it was being written our little songs were milling about in the background.
Phoenix Nights is one the most important things in out lives, and there hasn’t been a day where we haven’t quoted it at each other, so this is really special for us.
BLACKBURN -UNCONVENTION – THURSDAY.
MANCHESTER – GULLIVERS – SATURDAY.
We were all worried and nervous that nobody would know or care about us, because we’d never done our own gig there, but literally A MILLION people came.
Thursday we’re at un-convention in Blackburn and on Saturday we HEADLINE ‘Not a Summer Festival’ at Gullivers.
BUZZING OFF THIS BAND, US.
Tonight we play our first ever headline gig in Leeds.
Scary! But we’re gonna do dead good.
We’re gonna be the very best, like no one ever was.
IF YOU’RE FROM LEEDS, COME! There’s some great supports and it’s only a fiver. DON’T BE TIGHT!
We’re having a change of band name and style. From now on we will no longer be the The Lottery Winners, we’ll be The Burning Maggot Skull Fires.
We’ll be releasing the album ‘Urination on Education’ this year, and it will include singles such as ‘Punching Babies’, ‘I Like Shouting’ and ‘I Killed a Goat and I Liked It’.
