Hoxton Bar and Kitchen Gig - 20th May
The “Get Some Scars Tour” takes a hairy turn next week as we’re supporting Aussie band ‘The Beards’ at their sold out show at Hoxton Bar and Kitchen on Monday 20th May on the London leg of their world tour. These guys rule! - I’m looking forward to their song ‘If Your Dad Doesn’t Have A Beard Then You Have 2 Moms’ - Thanks to AEG - details here - http://www.aeglive.co.uk/node/1669
“Get Some Scars EP” is out now - a collection of Lux Lisbon tracks from the last year, all of which have been supported by BBC 6Music on various shows. Three of the four tracks are featured in ambitious and varied promo videos, featuring (amongst other things) an 8-bit zombie apocalypse, several dancing Boris Johnsons and an almighty homage to Wes Anderson.
The Artwork, as ever, is by the incredible Nathan Vernau. Can you spot the reference to each of the 4 songs?

Massive thanks to Colin and Matt from the Saturday show, really very enjoyable, despite keyboard dying 2 minutes before going live and a last minute change to a-cue-stick guitar.

‘Get Some Scars’ played on BBC 6 Music by Chris Hawkins on the Breakfast Show
We are pumped (yes, pumped) that the scholar and gentleman Chris Hawkins played ‘Get Some Scars’ on his show - after plays on the BBC6 Mixtape and Tom Robinson’s Saturday night show. We’ve been in the Studio with James Barr recording 4 new tracks for upcoming release, had a wonderful time. Expect a full list of ‘food in band name’ puns soon. This is a still from the ‘Get Some Scars’ video that we have now finished. Awight.
GSS Videoshoot - 12 hour day finishing the shoot for the Wes Anderson inspired ‘Get Some Scars’ video on Saturday, much of it quite random - a complete stranger in the street offered the use of his mintcondish 1971 Moris Minor (thanks Mick) and we bumped into Javon and his mates from Peckham U11’s football team who now star, bullying Stu on a roundabout. Aces high. Megathanks to Chris Tongue. Should be done in 2 weeks or so. The song is available as a free download.
