Its our 1st Anniversary on Ship Full Of Bombs Radio on Sunday 9th March from 8-10pm; so we’re going to actually let you know what we might play. tune in sfob.co.uk or TuneIn app
Normally on the show you’d find out as we play it to each other (and you of course) on air.
So we are bringing back Interview from the Gents (toilets of the Railway Hotel) with our Super Special Guest; Andrew Moore of Tumbledryer Babies, Send it to the Seaside and so many other things we cant list them. He can tell you instead during our ‘Parky / Aspel / Wogan’ style interviewing techniques.
There will also be an on-air authentic Cambodian celebration ceremony from Paul Wolfe to add some culture to the event, we’re all really looking forward to that!
We’ll also be playing a back2back2silverback mix of WeirdGear all-time faves containing some or all from: -

We have finally finished our album; Cosmonautes Discotheque and it’s out to buy or stream.
It’s an album designed to take the listener on a journey.
Three intrepid Space travellers get caught up into a vortex and their craft; Daytona 87 which Points to the stars. They arrive at Cosmonautes Discotheque – the nightclub and party to end all parties at the end of the known universe. Their first experience of this is the Halloween Dancehall, where they learn the Snakecharmer dance. The evil and malevolent Black7 attempts to destroy the CosmoDisco, but fails through the spirit of the crew of the starfighter Köln who travel Down the Line. The club resumes thanks to the Return of the Hammer and Wolfegroove. The crew of Daytona 87 realise they are truly welcomed and will never leave the Cosmonautes Discotheque
The album has its’ own backstory linked to The Lost Cosmonautes, a gentle nod to The Restaurant at the End of the Universe or any concept album you care to think of.
We hope to realise the story in a future ‘Deluxe’ Edition of the LP.
All sounds have been live performed, recorded and mixed by the band.
We are very proud of this album and would love you to give it a listen.
It was 4 years hard work where we had to learn about computer recording, production and production software, mixing and computer based arrangement. Oh; and most importantly - write the tracks….. Totally worth it!
Special thanks to Colin Green for his bass on Points, THE NKR for violin/vocals on Down the Line.
