We'll only start updating when you start noticing

Just to say for the record: STN is putting on two nights at Leicester Firebug in October. One is on the 28th and stars a solo Jeremy Warmsley. The other is TBC. More information shortly.

Normal service will be resumed

We know that by our usual workaholic methods - three bottles of workahol a day, it's a disgrace - this place has been pretty fallow recently, but after The Gig we're on a prologned catchup session, and then there's Summer Sundae this weekend. We'll be there, and at the Fringe Thursday warm-up parties, in a variety of appropriate band T-shirts plus badge. Let it be known, though, that we have a couple of special features in the planning and will be back a-posting sooner rather than later. (Well, obviously, there's an overlong review to type up next week)

What can we recommend in the meantime? Broken TV's Top 100 Comedy Albums On Spotify. That's what we can recommend in the meantime.

That's that done

Thank you to the (unfortunately) few who came down to Firebug last night to see our gig with Love Ends Disaster! and Pagan Wanderer Lu, both of whom were on top form. De Montfort University's radio station Demon FM's Exposure show came down to record both of them as well as interview their members and us, and that should be going out in the coming week days between 7pm and 9pm. Summer Sundae Fringe photographer David Wilson Clarke was there, and he took this and this.

And hey, what say we do this all again some time soon?
