ChinaMailing list members will have the UK dates, MySpace member’s the Chinese ones, but if you’re getting confused then click more for a full list of upcoming gig dates. They play China tonight, which technically is either tomorrow or yesterday, but regardless they’re all over Bejing this wekk so you can’t miss em whatever time zone you’re in. Oh how I wish I could frequent the “Get Lucky Bar”.

When they get back to the UK they’re gonna be hanging out with the Angel Of The North, destroying the airwaves with XFM, livening up my two home towns and leaving very few places in the UK untouched.

Wed 30th May
Reading Fez Club

the crimeaAcclaimed London based band The Crimea have announced bold new plans to release their hugely anticipated second album, “Secrets Of The Witching Hour”, as a free download from their own website on May 12th 2007. For those that want the real thing in a real case it’s available from shops as well! Anyone listening to Colin Murray may have heard some of it already – he’s been playing a track a week since Valentines Day.

Recorded in East London, Norfolk and Latvia, “Secrets of The Witching Hour” is an album as broad in geographic scope as it is sweeping melodies. Produced and mixed by the band themselves and ably assisted by Richard Jackson (The Automatic), Dave Allen (The Cure) and Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers), the album is comprised of eleven intensely lush and lovingly crafted songs. Regina Spektor and Amy May (Paris Motel) also lend their considerable prowess and musical beauty to the record.

A band with a strong die-hard following, they take in Reading Fez on their forthcoming UK tour.
