This week in Feb SCAFFOLDS OF MUSCLE was played on Fame Games radio (which is syndicated across the US and Europe) and also on the local BBC radio station.

SCAFFOLDS was actually recorded in 2006!

DASTARDS took London by storm on Monday at The Fly in New Oxford Street.

Watched by industry agents and representatives from major labels, Wake fired off their 30 minute set with TAKE A LEFT, followed by UNKNOWN METAPHORS, FLASHLIGHTS, MIRANDA, the forthcoming single STAYING OUT and finishing with the beautiful, epic – and crowd mesmerising – TROUBLE.

The band was on top form. Stoo (on drums) said, “I was playing my own kit for once and that gives me an extra edge – and while recuperating from my op I’ve been able to practice some new fills which I tried Live for the first time at The Fly”

Also on the bill – and proving just how good the competition is were Minus IQ – who look like they are on the verge of something big, and Armstrong who have an original sound and some great songs.  

DASTARDS left London at Midnight – and won’t be leaving it another 2 years before being back again!�

DASTARDS 3rd Single STAYING OUT is out on Feb 15th

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

DASTARDS released WHAT I CAME FOR in March 2007, then FLASHLIGHTS in October 2007. In 2008 DASTARDS had 3 new members so had to concentrate in learning the songs, writing new ones and playing live. Now – in 2009 – DASTARDS will be unleashing a set of single releases starting with STAYING OUT – out on Feb 15th!

So – now we start the long haul towards xmas.

The summer (what summer?) gigs went well. Stoo has settled in as the DASTARDS drummer. Jake got the grades he needs to study music at Bristol – which means it should be easier for him to get to rehearsals / gigs etc.  George is starting his own business. 

Wake has now moved to London and has got a job. He has also been in touch with a publisher – we’ll see if anything comes of that.

Got some new badges. Have made a contact at XFM radio and DASTARDS CD’s etc have gone off there – to see if we can extend the radio play. Kerrang have been playing DASTARDS tracks virtually every week since October 2007.

Next gigs:

Sept 26th – Sound Bar, Birmingham

Sept 28th – Adamn & Eve, Birmingham

Oct 30th – Red Bar, University of Western England

See you there!
