A Band Called IC7

IC7 Did Something! The Newsletter – February 2012
In a month where music mourns the loss of Whitney Houston and recovers from Blur’s Brits performance, we take you on a whistle stop tour of all things IC7
Work on the follow up to Do Something! began in earnest in the past week. Recording in our not so secret nuclear bat cave, we have started 4 songs and hope to have them finished within the next week or so. Once again we’ve been looked after by Pete Crisp, who ensures that Barry receives just the right amount of taunting and ridicule to get him through the arduous recording process.
The songs that will be shortly winging their way to your ear ‘oles are:
Save For You
Falling For You
All of the songs were written by Ross but Speed Camera was co-written with Tim Young a long long time ago.
We have two upcoming shows for you:
Tuesday 13th March @ Hooga, Chelmsford – FREE entry
Saturday 14th April @ The Bull & Gate in Kentish Town – Tickets £7 (TBC) – Supporting Mark Morris formerly of The Bluetones!
Gig Review - Club Fusion – 24th Feb
We had a great time on Friday back at Shakey’s Club Fusion. It’s a shame more people don’t attend this venue as it’s in a good location, has a pizza restaurant above and always has good bands. We played 2nd on the night after Joe Atlas who proved a solid singer songwriter and were followed by the modtastic Smoke Stax who ended on a two-punch of Heard It Through The Grapevine and Tin Soldier and The 633 who spend far too much time in front of a mirror but gave a good show. People need to get behind these gigs to keep the local scene thriving – good on Shakey for his relentless passion for discovering talent.
