Re: The Mai 68s

Apologies for my one bit of advertising Its been nigh on 5 years since the Mai 68s last played together and 10 years since we actually formed so now would be a good time for a comp wouldnt it. We will be releasing a comp of the recorded works of the Mai 68s on 180gm Vinyl with a booklet/fanzine with...

Re: The Mai 68s

How do :) completely forgot we even had a bandcamp until now and didnt realise that the tracks were available through amazon - Will probably get around to uploading the rest soon as there are vague plans to remaster the tracks and release them as a CD / possibly Vinyl but that will be a long time in...

Re: The Musicians wanted thread!

Anybody out that who fancies playing bass in an indiepop band as im currently looking for a bassist for some recording and gigs? Any influences are acceptable as long as you fit in and like the odd glass of wine but it would probably help if you have a passing liking (or at least no disdain for) the...

Re: Indiepop promotors in Southampton and Newcastle

Just to let you know it looks like jon (me) and julie 68 will be playing acoustically this Sunday at the criterion if we manage to practice in time. Were supporting terradactyles and pete wyatt I believe.
