We wanted to see if we could record an ‘isolation’ version of one of our tunes so no better one to go for than “Isolation”, which is where a lot of us are right now! The cover of the Joy Division classic is from our “Troublegum” album and we hope you enjoy wherever you are. Shares/RT’s always appreciated…Stay strong, stay safe, stay in!
How’s everyone doing out there? Keeping well we hope. To provide a bit of distraction we’re going to post some rare/fun videos from our illustrious 30 year career over on our Youtube channel (subscribe if you haven’t already!), mostly rare/unseen stuff. Some live, some promo, some studio etc might be interesting for yous to see. ‘Lockdown Bonus Balls’ if you will 😉
Will embed them as we post below…

Sorry to announce that unfortunately we must cancel our forthcoming concert in Istanbul this coming weekend as on Friday the 28th last, Neil found himself with a torn muscles and a trapped nerve in his back. Over the last 4 days he has been unable to walk unaided or without extreme pain. He has been advised against travelling or playing, it being extremely unwise and likely to lead to further complications, whilst at the same time significantly delaying his recovery.
“I wish there was a rock&roll story to my injury but there isn’t!
Unfortunately, I have been flattened by the pain and must listen to advice, focus on getting well and be careful not to aggravate the injury further.
So, with a heavy heart I must send a massive apology to our friends in Instanbul who were coming to see us at the concert on 7th March with Duman. I know myself, Andy and Michael were really, really buzzing about playing in Turkey again and I’m really gutted about my injury and the reason we have to pull out. So sorry everyone. Hope you still have an amazing night!”
The band hope to arrange new dates in Turkey in the not too distant future and will be working on some with our Turkish promoters.
That’s right, we are bring the “So Much For The 30 Year Plan” tour home to Dublin & Belfast!
Saturday 26th September, Limelight, Belfast (support TBA)
