HIYA and welcome to February!
It’s been a busy year for us already, as we’ve been getting a whole host of things ready for later in 2014. We’ll let you know more about them in the coming months.
First of all, we’re off on tour to celebrate the release of our new single Who Would Want to be Loved? from our album Now That You Are a Dancer, on Lost Map Records. We’ll be launching our latest offering at Stereo in Glasgow on Friday 14th February with a special party we’re calling ‘Kid Canaveral’s Lumber* Party’. Not only do you get to enjoy live sets from us, Malcolm Middleton, and Randolph’s Leap and then dance into the wee hours to DJ sets from The Twilight Sad and TYCI, you get a copy of our new record on hot pink, heart-shaped vinyl included in your ticket price. All of that for £10… Incredible! We’ve not got many tickets left, so get yours here, while you still can.
The dates of the tour are:
14 Feb GLASGOW, Stereo – Kid Canaveral’s Lumber Party – Tickets
15 Feb WAKEFIELD, The Hop – Tickets
7 Mar ABERDEEN, The Tunnels – Tickets
8 Mar DUNDEE, Beat Generator – Tickets
9 Mar LONDON, The Lexington – Tickets
22 Mar LEICESTER, Firebug – Leicester Indiepop All-dayer – Tickets
29 Mar MANCHESTER, Star and Garter – Tickets
3 May BREW AT THE BOG FESTIVAL, Bogbain Farm – Tickets
Tickets are going rather quickly for all of the headline shows above, so to those of you who have bought tickets: Thank you! Anyone else who is thinking of coming, you’d best get yours as soon possible. We’d hate for you to miss out.
We’re having a wee bit of a SALE over on our webshop, plus we’ve got more of the very stylish and very attractive ‘Kid Canaveral On Yr Radio’ t-shirts back in stock. They sell out pretty much as soon as we restock them, so if you’re looking some sophisticated Springwear, best get clicking here, now. We’ve also reduced some of our vinyl to scandalously low prices. While we’re on shopping, have you seen Lost Map’s wonderful postcard range? Why not send a loved one some music, from wherever you may be?
Some exciting and interesting things are happening over at our record label…
Lost Map has just set up its new message board. You’ll find out about gigs and tickets and special things over there, first. That goes for us, and all the Lost Map roster. It’ll also have some exciting follow-up from Lumber Party and the other shows on our tour. You should go register and introduce yourselves. You’ll find it here: http://lostmap.boards.net/
Our labelmates and pals Randolph’s Leap are releasing their new record Clumsy Knot on 5 April in Glasgow. They’ll be coming on tour with us on the aforementioned tour dates. You should get this record when it comes out. It’s awfy good. Also, excellent Glasgow pop trio Tuff Love have joined the ranks here at Lost Map. You should check them out. They’re brilliant.
Anyway, hope you’re well and we that we’ll see you soon.

*For those of you not from the Glasgow area and thus immune to the pun here: “A lumber is a person one meets at a dance or party and with whom one establishes an amorous relationship (e.g. ‘you’ll have no chance of getting a lumber if you act like a sexist moron’).”
