I'm writing this month's blog drinking a glass of ice cold water with a wedge (not a slice) of lemon in a pub by myself. Why? Because I forgot my keys and I don't have any money on me. And it's raining. There's a half-melted candle, some fairy lights draped across the room and the Scissor Sisters playing on the system. Quite a fitting place to reminisce on our latest adventures.
WE RELEASED A VIDEO. It was for our single Too Good. We teamed up with our good friend Ben Hale who directed the video, Harry Bojakowski who lit us up beautifully, and four amazing dancers (big up Liv, Shawn, Rose and Beth).

SCHOOL NIGHT IS BACK. We're teaming up with our mates at Emily Pilbeam (BBC Introducing, Radio 1), Scruff of the Neck and CloseUp Promotions to bring you 3 crazy cool nights at Oporto this autumn; each one packed live bands and banger-to-banger DJ sets from yyyyyyy'boys and special guest DJs.

As I look out of my window to see my new Ultra Soft Pyjama Bottoms (USPBs) flying in the wind, I can't help but reminisce on what has been the best year of my life. *Queue the montage clips and power ballads*.
BUT before I get all emotional on you, I'll fill you in on our December ongoings.
We started the month with our final SCHOOL NIGHT of 2016. We invited down our friends in Cassia and Vynce, who played mega sets to a packed out Oporto before the Virgin Mary, Jesus, Santa and an Elf (A.K.A. us) took to the stage for what was an incredibly fun gig. I never thought we'd end our set with a cover of The Darkness' Christmas Time (Don't let the bells end)...
MORE B2B -banger to banger- indie choonz chosen by us plus free Jaeger jellies all night at our monthly SCHOOL NIGHT DJ residency. What more could you want?
Get yourselves down to Oporto on Wed 2 March, when we'll be joined on the decks by Sisteray, who we gigged with in London earlier this month, straight from their Headrow House gig with Victors,Lone Guns and Atlanta House. Did someone say "after party"?
