This Is Woodhall Sparta, new times, old times...

Hello all, it's been ages since we used this blog, but we will be putting more and more stuff on here as time gos by from now on.


Well most of you know now, Simon has left, he let us know around Christmas and didn't buy us a present to say sorry, but that's ok, being in a band with him for five years has been awesome, and we'd like to thank him muchly for driving, playing and joining us in our musical and culinary missions across the UK.

His replacement is former Saving:Mitsuko and all-round nice guy Stuart Hudson, who has settled in very quickly and will be joining us on our European tour which is coming up ina few weeks, we'll be doing a big photo blog and tour diary for that, mark my words.

We have also recorded some new stuff, and will be releasing 200 copies of what we think will be a self-titled three-tracker, nice hand-made origami/transparency deal which we hope you will like as much as we do, I honestly think its the best we've ever sounded and has some more unique stuff on it (Lincolnshire folk song samples, old women talking about crafts and some other hidden gems). We are also actively seeking a new label, we have enough stuff to make a pretty mean sounding album and as far as we know, Sound Devastation aren't interested (we haven't heard from them in about a year anyway).

You can hear a new track called 'This Is Woodhall Sparta' and a track from the Black Sluice album at now.

That's it for new stuff, I thought I'd post all our gigs on here for posterity, seeing as we don't use the website any more, this is just a daft amount, at a quick count- 120 gigs with Si in the band, many more to come.

Little note, any gigs here marked with a star are tourdates, we've done five in all with the following bands: Red Stars Parade and Naked Shit (2005), The Death of Her Money and Art of Burning Water (2006), Narwhal (2006), Montana (2008) and Tiger Warsaw (2009).
