It was such a pleasure being asked to support Athletic Teenage Joggers on their farewell show last night. It was an amazing night of friends and fun. Special thanks to the Grace Emily for being great hosts as always!
If the loss of ATJ is too much to bear, we can recommend purchasing multiple copies of their album, Hello Demons, which can be found on Bandcamp.
Finally, a shout out to Mark and Jeremy Loobin’, collectively The Loobin’ Brothers, for getting us warmed up. A few photos are below.

Well, do you want the good news or the bad news first?
The bad news is that Athletic Teenage Joggers are closing the the book of ATJ, announcing an indefinite hiatus. The good news is that they have organised one final gig to say goodbye before they go, and that they have asked Friday’s Fox to join them on 13th June 2015 at The Grace Emily Hotel. You’ll also find The Loobin’ Brothers around on the night, we are assuming to provide some sort of lubrication service.
Update: Set times should be 9:15 The Loobin’ Brothers, 10:15 Friday’s Fox, 11:15 Athletic Teenage Joggers.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Grace Emily the other night, we can’t believe how many beautiful faces we saw, both good old friends and strangers!
Here’s a few pics of the stars of the show, Athletic Teenage Joggers, who tell us you can now purchase their album Hello Demons on BandCamp.

Athletic Teenage Joggers EP Launch
At the end of this month we will be helping our friends Athletic Teenage Joggers launch their debut EP entitled Hello Demons. This is currently getting some pre-launch airplay on Three D Radio, but if you haven’t managed to hear any of it yet then let us assure you it has been worth the wait.
Also accompanying us will be Kitchen Witch, who are currently recovering from their massive show supporting Tex Perkins’ The Ape last Saturday night.
If that’s not enough, this will also be the first public show with our new keyboard player!
This is a free entry gig, so you can spend the money on buying the CD, right?
A couple of photos from the show the other day at The Grace Emily Hotel. Athletic Teenage Joggers performed an acoustic set with support from Confident Asian Businesswoman and a solo acoustic set from Thomas Kalleske.
Rumour has it that the Joggers will finally be releasing an album in the not–too–distant future. More rumours suggest that further rumours are also in the pipeline. We will report what we know soon!
We did snap a couple of photos of Confident Asian Businesswoman, but in the interests of public decency we will keep them to ourselves. Do not confuse this band with the stock photograph collection of the same name!
