Oddbox Records have put out two Falling and Laughing songs as a download single as a bit of a pre-Bunnyhood teaser.
The songs can be downloaded from the Oddnet site. There’s loads of other great download singles there too!
Lights Out Birmingham was inspired by a New Scientist editorial about how they switch all the lights off in Reykjavik so that you could look at the stars in the night sky. Lights Out Birmingham was also the set opener and the ‘hit’ from when we were a three piece and had one of those bassists, like what the bumper book on starting a band says that you need. As it was Stu’s melodic basslines always contributed immensely to the two songs, and pulled them in scary new directions.
The b-side is again, Birmingham centric, all namedroppy by mentioning Snobs and The Jug and um, again all Nordic in that it’s about Swedish pop music. Isn’t Swedish pop brilliant!
Both the songs were recorded by Dom James and the cover was by Carla of Kooky Koala fame.
