The Sexy Sell.....

Hello
We have 2 very different videos for you too watch
The first being a video we made for Chemistry with the wonderful Harriet Bridgwater of modernmilk.blogspot which has been hosted by The Line Of Best Fit. We made it during a slow afternoon, and wanna big up everyone who let us use their personal photographs.
You can watch it here
And now for something completely different
errrrrrrrr. sex sells right? Does this mean we could be the backing track to some possible self pleasuring? Who knows. The possibilty of people cracking out with our music in the background is too funny not to mention.
peace

Tweet Shirts

So we finally succumbed and signed up to twitter. The graph below demonstrates the content of your average tweet. Our tweets will follow these percentages pretty closely though no doubt they will spill into the red more often than not... tallshipsmusic is our user name if anybody would like to start following our relentless output of shite..

We also got some lovely new T's for sale.

They were designed by Harriet Bridgwater of modernmilk.blogspot.com and hand printed by Kay of getagripstudio.com
As a limited run of 25 of each, these shirts are definitely this summers must have.
Get em from

TS Love Men

And so sadly but inevitably our first ever headline jolly across the UK has come to a close. We had the absolute pleasure of spending the time with the bearded, child raising, rollercoaster riding, tea guzzling, service station connosseur's that are Men. They are PROPER men and we can only hope of turning out like them when we finally hit adulthood ourselves. Absolute gents.


BIG FUCKER

Thank you also to everyone who came down to all the shows and made them all so bloody brilliant.

Its alright, but after you get bored 5 minutes in if that take a look at the TTT set. It is insane.
