It's been a while since our last blog post so bear with us whilst we try to sum up the last few exciting weeks succinctly!
Well... Hawkeye has a new tattoo... OF A HAWK! And Windy recently watched a film called "The Box" which was only around 40% as interesting as the title would have you believe.
Now you're up to date, let us tell you about some of our upcoming gigs! One of them has requested that we do material that is "appropriate for a family audience". This has thrown us somewhat as most of our material is not appropriate even for an audience full of consenting adults. In an attempt to find out how to be "appropriate", we consulted the internet vault of all that is wise and true; the online oracle "ehow".
Here we found sage advice on how to become appropriate in 5 easy steps. We have copied and pasted steps 1 and 5 for your information and have underlined the important parts:
1. Be a diplomat. Little white lies and "deceptions" are the glue that hold a large part of society together. Feigning interest, keeping your true thoughts private, being diplomatic -- sometimes sugar-coating the truth -- are valuable social skills.
5. Conform to the social climate. A hallmark of a socially adept, socially skilled individual is the ability to adjust her social behavior to fit the tone, or climate, of a particular situation.
So there you have it, readers! We are going to become conformist liars (sorry, diplomats) in order to be accepted into the elite circles of the 'socially appropriate'.
Failing that, we'll make some children cry and get chased off of the stage by pitchfork-wielding, socially-appropriate adults. Either way it'll be entertaining, so come on down!
In other news, we have written a new song that we will be premiering at a gig this Thursday. It is definitely NOT about the Daily Mail newspaper. It is also not appropriate in any sense of the word.
For details of our upcoming gigs, have a look here! In the next couple of months we'll be performing in Ashton, Manchester, Preston, Liverpool, Blackpool and more, so there's no excuse! Come! It'll be a hoot!
Thanks for reading, look out for our next blog post which may contain VERY exciting information! (Unfortunately the exciting news is not yet officially confirmed which is why it's not included today... Intrigued? You should be!)
LOL (lots of love)
Hawkeye and Windy
P.S. In case you missed this internet gem, here's a song we only wish we could have written. Powerful, emotional and not at all cringeworthy, vomit-inducing AWFULNESS... LET'S GET SOCIAL!
