Your bit starts at 24:33 into the podcast, in case you want to skip all the bollocks chatting that precedes it.

You can't really go wrong with a cello, can you?

And how could you keep this from us!?

there will always be a little piece of you in this band in the shape of the '61


Sweet of you to say...  :-*

Maybe that's part of my interest (OK, it definitely is) ...  but I would like your music just as well otherwise! I think it's exciting to have a front row seat to something that is just about to happen.  :)

I finnally got to watch the video, love the stop motion stuff, great song aswell.

will the single be available in any US stores? ( I don't have an Itunes account or anything, I'm pretty idiotic when it comes to computers...)

its only available as a CD right? a 45 would be beyond rad..... 8)

hey thanks! :)

hmmm...it's only iTunes for international sales, I'm afraid.... :(


yeah..next single we do, we're gonna do 7"s for it...they rule! :)

actually,

is there like an independent shop that sells limited units if they like the song?

I mean, we got Rough Trade here in the UK (and a few other retailers)

it there an equivalent we could contact in the States?

Tonevendor? (www.tonevendor.com) .. they're pretty cool.

Really love the music by the way. Good luck with cracking the Japanese market.  ;)

And according to that interview, shouldn't we be calling you "Yannis"?

hehe...that is my real (Greek) name, yes...I switched to the English version when I came to the UK...makes spelling out my name over the phone way easier.

so it's kinda odd nowadays...being called what everyone calls me in Greece :)


thanks for checking out the tunes...there's quite a few songs we got...a full set's about 9 songs, and they all differ nicely too...which is cool...I get bored easily! :)


I'll check out these vendor people...might be worth contacting them for US sales.
