Brobots poster version 2 designed by Brobot 2

Ahead of an eagerly anticipated four-band concert at Live Lounge this Friday, here is some news about the promotion and the latest activities of the bands taking part.

Brobot 2 has created the poster and flyer campaign for the night. As well as two variants of the full colour poster, the second of which is at the top of this post, he has adapted the designs to make two monochrome flyers which will be handed out to humans by the Brobots themselves in King Street, St. Helier, on the afternoon of Friday 28th August. If you’re in town around lunchtime, and you want to find out what it’s like to meet actual Brobots, then keep a look out for them, have a picture taken for posterity, and your life may never be quite the same again.

Brobots will also be playing at The Camden Head in London on Saturday September 5th, alongside Black Daniel and The Boicotts. Information for Facebook people here: Hotaru Gig 7

Amazing dance-punk superheroes Marvel have recently given their MySpace a spruce-up. It is now possible to download their classic EP Marvel At This Fiasco for free by following a link on their page, and to hear some samples from their latest studio sessions in the form of clips from two songs: Get Scared? and Carry On Reaper. First impressions indicate their talents for lusciously melodic, sonically adventurous pop music continue to develop, while the sheen and punch of these new productions is very impressive. Check them out here: Marvel at MySpace

Crowne continue to demonstrate a seemingly boundless industriousness. Barely three months since the release of their masterful debut EP, Nothing Can Stop Us Now, they have announced that they’re back in the studio working on its follow-up, a new set with the title The Walls Are Coming Down. Visit Crowne at MySpace where photos from their recording sessions can be viewed and a commercial tie-in with Dr. Pepper is suspected such is the proliferation of cans seen littering the studio.

Progressive, electronic rock band Banquet recently played at Rock In The Park, an outdoor event at Howard Davis Park in St. Helier, and a photographer from the Jersey Evening Post took an amazing photo of Scott and Brett from the band which was published in yesterday’s edition. I hope the band gains rights to the image and then I’ll hopefully be able to reproduce it here.

See you on Friday. The show starts at ten. As we’ve got four bands on the bill the live entertainment starts early so please get down there on time to avoid disappointment.

  1. Luuuuuuurved it! Really enjoyed playing, and hearing all the other bands.
