'.. and [it] .. seemed to be suspended in the most fragile silence, like the silence of January's second fortnight, or of February's first.' I loved reading this line (by Roberto Bolaño) on the train the other morning. Oh, dear peeps, finally there are some news in the House of Pipas. First of all we have set a release date for our next album! Despite a few hard drives crashing even. Who knows, 2010 could be our 10th anniversary if we apply ourselves a little. We're planning some get togethers sometime in late spring this year to play a few shows, so stay put for that as well.
In the meantime, if any of you are wandering the boulevards of London this Sunday 25 January, I'll be playing some new tunes with Alasdair, as Amor de Días, at the Hangover Lounge (Salmon & Compass, on Chapel Market, in Angel), along with The Vatican Cellars and Darren Hayman. The place is lovely, the dj's rock and the live sets will be a) unamplified and b) free. cocktails are two for one. good coffee, too. who knows, there may even be some birthday cake for Mr Jervis! xolupe
