Supporting The Letter – Shakespeares – Sat 14th April

Pisco Says: We are honoured to have been asked to play this:

The Letter Says:


And so, the end is near….

After 10 years together in various guises, THE LETTER (widescreen rock action from The North) have decided to call time on this particular chapter in their lives. HOWEVER, death is not the end and before the re-birth comes a massive celebratory gig at SHAKESPEARES on April 14th that will encompass all the stages in their ‘career’ AND will see the launch of their first (and last) album ‘UNKNOWN FAILURES’.

Shaped over a decade, the LP will feature old favorites alongside four brand new songs.

The final live fling will be an hour long show of our fave tunes and we are honored to have PISCO SOUR HOUR bringing up the rear.

If you are unfamiliar with these local legends, they describe themselves as:

“4 bourgeois idiots, flailing with instruments in a rudimentary, yet somewhat verbose manner”

We would describe them as XTC meets The Fall meets The Partridge Family
(or ‘fecking good’ in simpler terms).

Doors will open at 8pm but if you’ve not been to Shakespeares (Gibraltar Street, near the Law Courts) before or it you’ve not been since it re-opened, get down early as it’s a top-drawer boozer with plenty of interesting beverages to get stuck into!

Door tax will be mere £4, so join us for a rock & roll wake of epic proportions!

“Inspiring energetic bold and confident hard-hitting post-punk-Irish-folk, toe-tapping and captivating in equal measure”
Counterfeit Magazine

“A five-piece melodic rock outfit with alternating vocalists and impressive changes in pace and intensity…sounding very edgy!” Sheffield Music

‘A Hammer to the Camera Lens’ – iTunes Release

A Hammer To The Camera LensHello.

It’s finally here!

We’re very pleased to announce that you can now buy our new album, A Hammer to the Camera Lens right now from iTunes. To be honest we were taken by surprise as we were told the process would take at least a month, when it actually took two days. This is why you will have to wait a several weeks if your preferred format is CD (of which there will be limited numbers, and might actually be a couple of quid cheaper, depending on how many we make). However, if it is MP3 goodness you are after, then fill your boots.

Buy from iTunes

After you’ve downloaded the album, and we recommend you do as its the best thing we’ve ever done, why not go here, where you can view the album lyric sheets and inserts.
