03/12/04 GIG CANCELLED Due to unforseen circumstances we have had to pull out of Sunday's gig at the Bully in Oxford. Sincerest apologies to those who had planned on coming to see us, but, we will be back in Oxford in February hopefully.

21/11/04 VA L'ITALIA AND NEW YORK It's great to know our latest release I KnOw is being enjoyed from Europe to the US with DJs getting in touch from Italy and the cool kids in New York wanting more 100 Bullets Back. Thanks goes to Sid Siddle, Mr. Bardos and the Velocity Recordings machine for including us on their brilliant Abuse Your Friends Vol 4 compilation which is hot in the underground of New York city.

11/11/04 OXFORD POP A thoroughly enjoyable show in Oxford's Wheatsheaf last night, thank you to all who were there. One of our latest studio workings Wichita was aired for the first time and it seemed to be appreciated! Thank you.

26/10/04 NEW YORK, NEW YORK Noel has left us for a week, bound for The Big Apple, he'll be meeting up with some of Reading's Off The Radar crew who have reported "I KnOw" has been getting popular out there. It has apparently been singled out off of VELOCITY RECORDINGS Abuse Your Friends Vol. 4 album and has sparked a good deal of interest in us.

21/10/04 FRIENDS IN ARMS, NME ENEMIES, IN READING Last night, Reading bore witness the raw energy, melody and passion for music driving the POP OF THE TOPS train. Biggie Reef and The Gas headlined a special evening on the POP OF THE TOPS rounded tour with great sets beaten out by us and our friends from the brilliant New Cross, Nebraska and Corporation Blend. Tim and Matt were god-like on the sound, cheers fellas. The show was nothing short of electric......roll on the 10th November when the tour hits Oxford. Good to see you all.

05/10/04 AIRPLAY, STUDIO PLAY AND POP OF THE TOPS BRILLIANCE!

We have also been down in the glowing underground scene of London, paying a visit to the Metro on Oxford St to see what is becoming of the blossoming "New Cross Scene" to watch energetic performances by Nebraska and Corporation Blend. Watch out for the superb Pop of The Tops coming to Reading and Oxford in the next two months where we will be playing with these two bands. DO NOT MISS THESE SUPERB BANDS.

16/2/04 3 IS THE MAGIC NUMBER Our biggest gig to date last week, supporting Dogs Die In Hot Cars and The Zutons, was memorable for the fact that it was our keyboardist's last gig. Andi was with the band for a year and appeared on all the band's recorded material to date. For live shows all keyboards have been recorded and will be played via a backing track so the electronic element is not lost. In fact, it has just got a whole lot bigger!

9/2/04 RECORDING NEW MATERIAL We're back in the studio once more to record a new track "I KnOw", which should be appearing on Reading label Velocity Recordings upcoming compilation cd "Abuse Your Friends Volume 4", due for release around April.

"Dancehall" and "Wichita" are two to listen out for.

12/12/03 "READ ALL ABOUT IT" For those of you who couldn't make it (and those who could), a review of our recent gig at the Hope & Anchor is now available on the Neon Promotions website. Click below to see what the reviewer thought:

7/12/03 FINISHED IN THE STUDIO We have been unleashed from the hard work in the studio having laid down the new material along with a remix of "Violence" from their last EP, to prepare for the upcoming gigs in December. We are very happy with what has been achieved and are eager for people to hear it early in the New Year. Thanks goes to John Halliday at Shonk studios for his help, good work and patience in getting the result the band were looking for. To give you something of an insight into the new release without giving too much away, the first song is 6 minutes long and features new production and sound elements which we were keen to use in the pieces. You can expect to hear some reverse keyboards, poetry and Noel giving it some on the distortion and feedback side of things! Boys with toys. A brand new song altogether will be performed for the first time in the band's next gig in London. David will be temporarily ditching the bass to play the keys on this new highly infectious electro number that will have you moving your feet in no time.

28/11/03 CLUB VELOCITY We are happy to say they have been added to the bill for February 2004's monthly gig. We are also appearing at January's Club V. Keep um comin'!
