We lost our dear friend and band mate two years ago. She is always in our thoughts. Love to Carey and thinking of all her family and friends today x

Very happy to have been included on this playlist of bands recorded at Chem19 over the years. A great list of artists to be included with, and a great place to record music.

Four years ago today, we filmed this.... The Troublemaker video was our nod to 70's and 80's sci fi, and was top fun to film. Lots of references to spot from Doctor Who and Blakes 7 to the Tomorrow People, Saphire and Steel and the film Death Watch.

You might remember some time back we mentioned that Chop Pop was creating a paper cover version of the Let's Get Out Of This Country video.... They have just finished it. 196 frames of hand done animation. Looks incredible. We'll let you know what happens with it.....
The artwork for Desire Lines now compliments the back wall of a charity shop in Glasgow, The Magpie's Eye Gallery, which rasies money for Starter Packs Glasgow (a charity which is, entirely coincidentally, managed by Gavin)
Thanks to the Going Up The Country Charity Pop Weekend 2017 and everyone who attended. £2161.49 has been raised for Sarcoma UK in Carey's name, which is a tremendous achievement. Thank you very much x

June was a popular month for releases at Obscura Towers. Today is the 11th Birthday of Let's Get Out Of This Country on Elefant Records in Europe and Merge Records in North America. Happy Birthday! Here is the title track, and another video by the wonderful Blair Young and Forest Of Black

A wee reminder folks that this weekend is the Going Up The Country Weekender in Congleton. This year, they are raising money in memory of Carey for Sarcoma UK. If you live locally, its definitely worth a trip.
