It’s all happening…

The Crimea have just played their first two gigs this year, and who was to fill the position of lead guitarist but none other than the first female band member since Hannah provided some vocals back in 1995. Giving away more than Owen wants to, Julia Parker (or Julz if you know her) has said that she’s part of the band unless she has “a huge row with anyone”. What can I say other than Kick Ass.
XFM are bringing in the band to record a few songs for the Music:Response show on Thursday 27th of this month. One song should be broadcast at around 8.00pm, and I’d listen to the rest of the show incase they decide to play anything else. You can hear XFM on 104.9 FM in the London area, through digital TV and radio or online via the XFM website.
The next series of Cable TV, available through BBC 2 Wales, will be featuring The Crimea as guests on one show. There’ll be more details posted about that later, as soon as I get ahold of some.
The Independent newspaper has given the upcoming Crimea show at The Borderline this Friday the top spot in it’s ‘Five Indie’ish Things’ gig listings for the week, putting them ahead of both the Athelete and Hell Is For Heroes gigs.
Site regulars will have noticed that the normal message board has dissapeared again. If anyone spots a decent type board that can be used as a permanent replacement, then let me know at
I’ll end with something that has nothing to do with The Crimea, as on Thursday evening I was in The Crocketts’ home of Aberystwyth, just at the right time to see three other local bands The Keys, The Hot Puppies and Gabrielle 25 do a gig for the Radio 1 Exposure Tour. There’s a review of the whole event here, and fuck me does Andy’s Records have a lot of Crox CDs for sale :o ).

    Yeah, Andy generally makes it to bandwagons eventually… but the ol’ place isn’t as reasonably priced / stocked as it used to be…
