It's Rob here, and it's my turn to tell you all about what we've been up to over the last month or so. I will do this in what people from the internet call: a 'blog'.
As I write to you, I'm sitting in my childhood bedroom on our manager's old broken laptop, punching harder than you would expect is appropriate at the keyboard in order to make it work. If anyone could see me now, they would surely be convinced that I have gone mad and some men in white coats would be along shortly to come and take me away. Thankfully for all of us, that is not the case and I can bash away violently until my heart is content whilst listening to 'Sylvia's Mother' by Dr. Hook for about the 1000th time in a row.
…and so the bumble bee licked the cat, flew into a tree, stole the marshmallow and fled the scene. Was mental… Oh sorry! Hi there, person reading this blog, that was just…um…I was just telling a…thing. Never mind.
This blog goes back a bit to when James and Rob went to that little bash known as Glastonbury. I wasn’t jealous. Nah, I wasn’t. Why do you think I’m jealous? I’m not. Stop shaking your head at me. I don’t care. Don’t wanna talk about it now, not ‘cause I’m jealous, just you upset me. They said it was great. I suppose it would have been better if I was there… They both then went to the Maccabees’ final tour dates, which is a rubbish thought that it was their final gigs. Hopefully they all hit their heads and want to reform next year.
FESTIVAL TIME! We're just back from Glastonbury, the sun is almost shining and we're raring to start our run of summer festivals, kicking off with Barn Of The Farm. Cale chatted to Born Music Online about playing the festival, weird tour accommodation and his speed dating pitch.🎈
We’ve had a lot of good months in Marsicanland recently, but this month has been summin’ else! I always thought Tellytubbyland was the place to be when I was a kid but then I realised that there were fully grown adults running around in those suits and Noo-Noo was actually a girl on a tricycle. Come to think of it, we do dress ourselves in similarly colourful outfits. So, I guess Marsicanland is a veiled effort to hold onto the childhood dreams that Tellytubbyland provided (for me at least). Anyway, it’s doing a pretty good job and let me tell you why.
Since releasing our first single of the year, we’ve had a ton of support from some of our favourite radio DJs including the main man Huw Stephens who made Friends his Tip of the Week, Phil Tagga...
