A lot of news to cover. COMFORTABLE ON A TIGHTROPE will be issuing the debut 7". "Wrong / The Road To War" features a remix of one of the first Apostille tracks and the latest recorded work. The 7" will feature a screenprinted sleeve, stamped labels and a download code.
You can pre-order it at the Night School distro site. To celebrate the tour and to see old friends there will be a short Apostille tour. The dates are below.

See Everyone. Terror Bird show.

One of my favourite artists this century is Terror Bird, ostensibly the recording moniker of Nikki Never. I booked a tour for Terror Bird last year which re-defined the idea of 'shoe-string budget,' producing many laughs on the way. Terror Bird's first release in the UK was 'Outside' which I was fortunate enough to release in February of last year. So it's with a lot of pride and excitement to announce that I'm hosting her only 2012 UK show at the Waiting Room (formerly the Drop) in Stoke Newington, London. Also playing will be Bomber Jackets who haven't played a show since the release of their recent EP on Night School 'Centurion Travel' EP. For purely selfish reasons Apostille completes the bill. The show takes place on September 4th. 8pm.

In the meantime. See Everyone.

New Shows.

The next Apostille show is on Friday 29th at 113. The show will be with Le Cercle Des Mallissimalistes who judging from this video will be performing a sweaty guitar ritual en masse in the London heat.

This band features Jan who's always very accommodating in Bordeaux and also plays in a great avant pop group called Chocolat billy. After that the next scheduled show is on the 24th of July with Mazes at the Seabright Arms.. more on that later.

First Show. Next Show. Listen.

First Apostille show was with friends Comfortable On A Tightrope in Manchester on Saturday 11th. Was amazing to hang out with Perry, Laetitia, Sam, their friends and Molly Nilsson, who performed a swoonsome set. Afterwards we danced at a Northern Soul night and got told off for bumping into people. For Serious Dancers only.

NEXT SHOW: THE SCALA, with Future Islands and Way Through on Tuesday 6th March. Check out the Upset The Rhythm website for more info.
