The Band's First Gig, BBC6 and Radio Cherwell

That red mic sure matches my arms
It has been a busy few weeks for me and the band. We had our first gig at Mr Wolf's in Bristol on Monday 14 March, and were supported by the awesome Mr Duke who had us laughing into our free noodles. The venue started to buzz by the time we hit the stage - quite lucky for a Monday night. It was ace to finally play out to a live audience and to catch up with our pals in Bristol. Even T-Lo's parking ticket couldn't bring the mood down.
The very same night in London my track 'Hang My Picture' was played on Tom Robinson's BBC 6 Music show "Fresh on The Net," which was pretty awesome. Big thanks to Ruth Barnes and Tom Robinson for that.

Huck and T-bone on Radio Cherwell

Last night Huck and I were interviewed for Radio Cherwell in Oxford which was quite an experience. The show is played to all the NHS Hospitals in Oxford, but before you start self-harming you can listen in online too. It was lots of fun watching Huck set the world to rights through a fluffy green mic. As soon as the show is up I shall let you know.

Now we're looking forward to our big Oxford debut at the end of the month with JuJu from Little Fish, Samuel Zasada and Bethany Weimers. After that it will be playing in the Regional Finals for the Live and Unsigned Competition.

 Hope to see you there at the Cellar on the 31st March.

Oxford Mail Review

'By the end of the first number, Tamara is sounding strong and confident, reminding me of a sort of “Siouxie Sioux, Unplugged”, while Bunny notes a brightness to her singing that has grown since we last heard her.'
