Blivet is our latest EP, released in May 2017. The three instumental tracks each contain looped guitar/vocal/synth parts of different length, which overlap and interlock to create interesting song structures.

The Archives

This is where we'll be uploading all the tracks that don't fit anywhere else - chiptune instrumentals, demos, songs that won't be put out on CD, or just tracks that we can't play live because they have far too many guitars and vocal parts on them!  Click on the image below for a hi-res version of the cover, click on the song titles to download the tracks.

Description:  Ben returns to his indie-schmindie roots for a slice of guitar-pop nonsense in this tale of a man who falls for his gay best friend.  Bill hates this song.

30/12/2010
Description:  An outtake from the "Man Against Machine" sessions, owing to an overabundance of guitar parts and some fairly ropey lyrics.  Ben dreamt the main riff to this track way back when he was 15 and had just started learning the guitar.  In the dream the song made him rich and famous, but in reality it is destined to remain ignored - gathering dust in the deepest darkest corners of the internet forever more.
The Next Big Thing
3:40 9.79 MB 24/12/2010
Description:  Originally written as the first (and only) single for a planned side-project that was to be known as The Next Big Thing.  The song is about falling in love with a one-hit-wonder and is a straightforward two-chord rocker, featuring backing vocals from our photographer Sarah L.
Are You There? 2:36 7.36 MB 12/03/2010
Description:  We seem to have something of a backlog of slow/quiet tunes at the moment.  Here's one about not giving up.  Ben's vocals were recorded in a wardrobe for extra clothy goodness.
Robots From The Future 4:52 12.5 MB 28/11/2009
Description:  This track is our homage to Grandaddy.  Fairly straightforward acoustic indie strum, with some vintage synth sounds and a cautionary environmental tale.
