Yeah, we know, we’re getting as tired of this as you are. We can though, absolutely 100%, confirm that the Davy and Dan acoustic gig in the Limelight, Belfast will take place on SUNDAY, April 7th.

We’re so sorry for the confusion

Davy Dan Owen

Like I said, it’s the bloody 7th.

New Crocketts tracks!!!!
Head over to, click on the tacks link and download the brand new Crocketts song, Fred Flintstone. I’ll try and get the lyrics up soon. Sounds like a bit of a cross between Ash and the Eels. Maybe they could finaly make it. :o )

I’ve just seen the stock list for the new shop and it looks pretty good, some stuffs very limited though so get your checks of straight away, just after i’ve sent mine.
The list includes all cd’s except frog on a stick, all vinyl except loved ya once.
Various promo cd’s including a crocketts compilation promo and an acoustic promo.
Explain, host, on something videos and a live barfly sessions video.
All tshirts in one size or another apart from the motorhead style shirt.
Like I said, some stuff is very limited so wait till the shop opens then get your money off quickly. If you miss out, and other second hand shops have alot of the cd’s and vinyl. If you’re anywhere near York, check out Wild Cat Records, i got a nintendo fallacy promo from there a few weeks ago, and they usually have 1 or 2 second hand crox cd’s in stock.

Looks like The Crocketts have decided to change their name to Klutzville. The name is on all their new demos, and they were on XFM a couple of days ago as Klutzville. So far I only know of two songs under the Klutzville name – Fred Flintstone from the site and White Russian Galaxy (known as Who Knows on the demos) which was played on XFM, plus a Demo album sent to a couple of people. Not me. Grr. They should be playing in London around June. I say look out for a new website too. Sounds pretty nice but I don’t wanna see dissapear.

27th April
There’s a review of the Klutzville demo up on Channel 4 teletext.
To see it for yourself, go to ch.4, turn on teletext, go to page 457 and wait for pg. 2 to come up.

Pick of the Week
Klutzville guitarist Danny used to play in a fair-to-middling UK indie combo (no names no pack drill, he requests) and clearly knows what he’s doing.

This first demo showcases five tracks of poised indie rock, the first teo of which, bizarrely, both mention Tarzan.

The best track is the endearingly daft, bittersweet Fred Flintstone. They play in June: could be worth seeing.

No sooner said than done. Get your wee ass over to the CROCKETTS.NET SHOP right now for the below mentioned goodies. Only ?2.50 for a single, ?6 for a shirt, and that includes p&p. and NEW TRACKS :o ) could a day get any better? Not for about 3 years it couldn’t. And I believe the 5 tracks available for download are the ones on the 5 track EP. Now I just need to figure out some more lyrics.
