Quick News Post

I’m just testing something out in preparation for the spiffy new Lonesome Monsters website with this post.  Progress towards the EP has, as ever, been pretty slow.  The artwork’s mostly done, bar the CD and the back cover/tracklisting.  The music’s also mostly done.  Here’s a list of what’s still to do:

  • CD artwork.
  • CD back cover.
  • Choose colour of thread for the EP.
  • Finish tidying up Swings.
  • Ollie’s vocals for RGB.
  • Tidy up RGB.
  • Website (part way done; we’ll be using Google App Engine).
  • Alternate EP (alternate online-only takes on the EP’s 5 songs – to go on bandcamp?).
  • Scott Pilgrim vol. 6 post 😉

New blog!

So in preparation for the EP’s release, and the new band website, we’ve moved the blog to wordpress.  And changed the blog’s name, now that we actually have a band name.  WordPress seems to be a nicer piece of software than blogger, though I’m not too impressed you have to pay to be able to alter the blog’s stylesheet (hopefully not a problem when we have the blog mirrored on the band website).

Anyway, I’m going to leave this post at the top here as an introduction.  Lonesome Monsters is a Glasgow band making an electronic-y guitar-y noise.  We’re releasing an EP later this year on Giant Bear Tracks.  As well as my own ramblings, this blog documents our culinary adventures.

Here’s some work-in-progress tracks we’ve recorded to tide you over till the EP’s out:



A special Christmas track:


And a slightly scruffy video shot up by the canal:

And of course, be sure to check the posts below this – I generally update the blog once a week, though it’s not always band-related.
