Have y'all seen this? That bit with the curtain: pure Morecambe and Wise. Rock'n'roll as music hall. Surely one of our finest POP bands.

I interviewed The Tuts last week and just posted the interview over at our blog:
http://fallenloverecords.tumblr.com/pos ... w-the-tuts

We talk about sexism, being role models to young kids, DIY booking vs. actually being able to get decent shows, and marriage proposals from fans.

Hi everyone. I think this has been posted about a bit already but would really love if any Londoners could come to our show upstairs at The Garage on the 16th July.

https://www.facebook.com/events/667823486600495/

Was really tricky to book a good 14+ show, we had to keep on changing location, date and took weeks of emails back and forth. We've been non stop flyering for this and we're hoping to sell it out, please come along! As y'all know, DIY can be a painful struggle sometimes especially in London! So spread the word about the show!

Plus I've played with Cat Bear Tree before so can emphasise how amazing they are.

Thanks :)

Harriet x

Hi everyone! Desperately need someones help with a show!!! Me and The Tuts have a mini tour booked in October:

9th - Nottingham
10th- ???
11th- Leeds
12th- Manchester

Been trying to book a show to replace the one we had in Newcastle on the 10th but no one/where seems to be available. Trying to ensure it kinda make sense geographically but getting desperate!! Ideas: Northampton, York, Leicester, Brum, Hull? or surrounding areas! Can anyone help me out? We'd be very happy supporting anyone else/jumping on a show!

More Tuts related thuggery and nastiness:
Last night we were assaulted in Brighton at Undercover fest. On arrival we entered the festival in good spirit and excited to play but immediately we were treated very rudely. Basic requests for a room to get changed (office, or even a cupboard) were laughed at. We were told we were not “prestigious” enough to have such a luxury. Keep in mind it was a small festival with plenty of empty rooms, and we were playing the main stage (not that this should even factor in!). Anyway we didn’t let this bad start kill our vibe as we just love playing festivals and were excited to see The Selecter

At the end of The Selecter’s set, you may know, we always jump on stage. So we walk to the side stage area to get ready for that. Disclaimer: we had played the same stage just a few hours earlier, we had wristbands and the whole crew knew who we were and we had interacted with all of them a number of times (it was hard to miss The Tuts - the only young people there, in matching outfits, with 2 members of colour). Nadia just STANDS at the side of the stage and waves to the drummer who acknowledges her and encouraging the stage invasion. At this point Nadia hadn’t even set foot on the stage yet because it wasn’t the right part of the song. Suddenly, a large male crew member who worked at the festival grabbed her body and started to throw her away from the stage yelling aggressively. She was gripped by both arms, it was an unprovoked attack with an unnecessary amount of force used on a small woman. The fracas attracts the attention of Harriet and Beverley who rush over, trying to free her from this violent male. Harriet is grabbed by her back and thrown into the railings. Not only was Nadia 'dragged' away from the stage but this man tackled her with no justification.

Very quickly more security get involved. Instead of listening to what happened in the first place their instinct was to all physically restrain Nadia because she was emotional and completely traumatised by what had just happened. The male security and the festival organiser were very quick to make the situation about them and showing no concern for our well being and safety - It felt like their empathy or concern was being blocked by their egos. The festival organiser Mick Moriarty screamed at us “YOU HAVE 5 MINUTES TO GET OFF MY FESTIVAL”. Shortly after, a huge male member of security grips Nadia by the arms followed by two female security who take Nadia off the premises. All we wanted to do was get our equipment and leave but we were left stranded in the car park crying in shock. Shortly after we called the police and reported the whole thing. We are yet to find out the name of the crew member who instigated this physical violence.

No one should have to wake up with bruises down their arms from being manhandled. The problem is WE ARE NOT SAFE AT OUR OWN GIGS. Not just because of the physical violence that crew members or security will VERY quickly resort to. But unless we have a white male as an eye witness, our accounts or experiences will never be listened to or taken seriously in the moment. We’ve noticed a considerable difference in the way we’re treated at gigs depending on whether we bring a male crew member or tour manager with us. Does that mean we have to have a man with us at all times to 'protect' us from other angry men?

As you know, this is not the first time this has happened. The first attack on Nadia in 2012 at the Brixton Windmill fuelled by racism and misogyny. This attack, although it may not be racist (who knows) we have to analyse WHY these older white men (full of rage) so quickly switch to body tackling a 5” 2 woman of colour at her own shows. THINK about that.

Because scum bags who happen to like music think they're big fishes despite being in small ponds?
Toot toot.
