It's Un-Convention Time
Yes, " No. Two" now available as a download from all self respecting on line stores.
If you are holding out for the cd, in all it's tactile and visual glory, i am afraid the wait goes on a little longer. Due to a small glitch concerning the "steambots" at the manufacturing plant, it appears a very late April, most likely May launch is on the cards.
On the recorded material front, as i have eluded to previously, the third and fourth albums were laid down on last years trip to Germany and it is still planned to release No. 3 within the calendar year. Three being the album where the cover is being montaged from all those portrait shots that many of you contributed.
Another productive visit to Holstein last month now see's the raw material for No. 5 written and recorded and hopefully we may get the odd one dropped into the summer's live shows.
Inevitably the delay in the cd's production is keeping a launch party date and airing of the new vids on ice. Well it only goes to increase the dramatic expectation.
This coming weekend the 5/6th of April, see's BB back in live action at a pair of interesting events.
Firstly on Saturday at Sci-Fi Scarborough, to be held at The Spa, tickets at £35 for the weekend and £20 for the day available from The Spa box office. http://www.scarboroughspa.co.uk/events/Sci-Fi-Scarborough-April-2014
BB will round off a day of music at 11pm on the fabulously titled "Fritz Lang Stage" . Plenty going all day to keep you entertained away from the music as well, with films, quizzes, traders, speakers, and much more.
Special guests include the sixth "Doctor", Colin Baker and all four of the "Red Dwarf" crew, Craig Charles will also be spinning a few tunes after BB.
On Sunday BB head for Chester Uni's Warrington campus for the "Otherworlds" convention, opening the themes up to include not only sci fi, also horror, fairies, goth and specifically steampunk, accepting that essentially steampunk is sci fi.
Not certain of stage time for BB at this point, expect between midday and 3pm, please check though at http://www.otherworldsconv.co.uk/ and also for tickets, which are not available on the day. £15 weekend/£8 day.
Heads up for Easter Saturday that BB we will be playing The Pavilion in Matlock Bath, the first event of the new season there, so it will be interesting to see how the renovation is progressing. More details next week.
