All our stuff can be bought from here

We have always been huge fans of fellow Hullensian , Tom Courtenay, and he provided the inspiration for our new single BILLY LIAR, which was released on Jem Records on 6 March 2020. Instantly catchy, eminently hummable and a proper powerpop earworm, the track has picked up global airplay and has been in the Radio Indie Alliance Top 10 for 4 consecutive weeks. Check out the video here.

New  album THROUGH A WINDOW will be released on legendary US label, Jem Records, on 21 June 2019.  The 10 track album begins with the new wave DO YOU WANT WHAT I NEED it then follows with the jangle pop of SUNSET GIRL.  Both tracks are picking up considerable global airplay. Next is The Monkees cover I'm GONNA TRY before a change in pace and the haunting ballad UPON OUR SKIN.  Closing side 1 is HERE SHE GOES AGAIN which grooves along in a Beatlesque manner.  Side 2 opens with another new wave rocker WINNING A LOSING GAME.  THIS AUTUMN ROAD is a story of yearning and regret but the mood is then picked up with a fantasy tale of a day at the seaside with GIRL YOU WILL BE MINE.  The penultimate track is a cover of The Lemon Pipers THE SHOEMAKER OF LEATHERWEAR SQUARE.  The album ends with the band's tribute to Tom Petty, GOODNIGHT MR TOM, but it could relate to anyone that has lost someone dear.

Already being heralded as the sound of the summer it's available on cd and download. 


After appearing at last year's IPO Festival the band were delighted to be asked back to perform again in 2019.  Strutting their stuff on the larger Cavern stage and then across the road at The Cavern Club, a splendid time was had by all.  Check out the photos in the gallery section. Hope to see you again next year!

Many thanks to Proper 

Distribution - our album is now available nationwide from HMV on the high street. What do you mean you still haven't got a copy?


We are absolutely delighted that SUNSET GIRL has made the NUMBER ONE slot in the coveted Radio Indie Alliance Top 40.  Thanks to all the stations that have been playing it.




Mark from the band gave an extensive interview to Roger Nicholls for his Saturday Imaginarium Show which is broadcast on UK Rock Radio every Saturday at 10am GMT. The show developed into a bit of a Gold Needles special. You can find Roger's show here
