Too Many Flesh Suppers (Free Download) by Gareth

This track was recorded during the Romance Is Boring album sessions. It’s one of my favourite things we’ve ever recorded, but it was with a heavy heart we (rightly) decided it didn’t ‘fit’ in the album. It was later used as the B-Side to the Romance Is Boring 7″, which nobody bought.

So, we’d like for you all to hear it, if you haven’t already, here it is as a free download. We are good people.

(Also, if you’re gonna blog about this or anything, please don’t say it’s a “new track” or anything like that, because it’s really not. Cheers.)

Los Campesinos!

This very drum kit. Played at such places as Lollapalooza, Coachella, Last Call with Carson Daly and North, South, East and West of the US and Canada.

New drum set up coming shortly though, and as a result we’re letting go of this amazing kit in order to purchase a new one.

Charity Auction by Tom

Hello there,

How is everybody?

Thought I’d alert you all to an eBay auction that’s a-happening…

It’s on behalf of the good people that organise Cardiff’s Woodstick festival. That took place last weekend and raised a load of cash for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (www.c-r-y.org.uk), and we thought we’d chime in and try and help a little ourselves by, er, exploiting you and your generosity.  Which is kind of altruistic, right?  Either way, it’s for a great cause, so please feel free to tuck whatever cash you have in our filthy g-strings of charity as we wiggle and grind our philanthropic foo-foos in your face.  Yeah!

There are two auctions, one for the vinyl test-pressing of our last album and the other for a test-pressing of our most recent EP… These are genuinely really rare as there’s only a few of them in existence, so hopefully at least one of you will find them attractive…
