WE are THRILLED to be able to SHARE this POWERFUL RECORDING with YOU.
We spent a SURPRISINGLY INDUSTRIOUS weekend with the WONDERFUL OWEN at SICKROOM STUDIOS in deepest, sunniest NORFOLK and recorded a VAST SELECTION of TUNES spanning MANY GENRES and SPEEDS (and turned MOST OF THEM into FAST SKA). SERIOUSLY, we did more than TWENTY songs in ONLY THREE DAYS and crammed in a DARING GIG at the FOX AND HOUNDS in HEACHAM too, which was ALMOST SUBMERGED by FLOODWATERS at the time.
Over the ENTIRETY of this NOBLE EXPEDITION we subsisted only on a MONASTIC DIET of HARIBO, BRIOCHE, TINS of SARDINES, PACKETS of HAM, BANANAS, CUPS of TEA and the COMPLICATED BUFFET SYSTEM at a nearby CHINESE RESTAURANT. We didn't EVEN get THAT PISSED.
This FEAT OF ENDURANCE bore MAGNIFICENT FRUIT which has CURRENTLY only been ENJOYED by EWB BAND MEMBERS and their NEAREST and DEAREST. NOW, to WHET YOUR APPETITE, WE present to YOU the TIP of our MUSICAL ICEBERG: a cover of one of THE KINKS' CLASSICS: 'COME DANCING'.
We have just spent a marvellous weekend recording in Norfolk Sickroom Studios. Thanks to Owen for your patience and and for a great weekend.
Our live Recordings will be coming soon !!!!!
We're delighted to be invited back to Portsmouth to headline the Friday night of the Portsmouth Beer Festival in May 2015. We had a great time there in December, and what's better than some great live music mixed with a ton of fantastic beers!?

Please try and come down and support us for this event, it's a very worthy cause and will be a great event. A night of live music, DJs, a raffle, good times and memories. Raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Care. That's gotta be worth a a trip to Camden! In honour of the legendary Marc McCartney!!!
We are MASSIVELY excited to be able to share this with you...
Ben Ottewell, singer/songwriter, guitarist, frontman extraordinaire of Gomez, has recorded an acoustic cover of our song 'Rise of the Beard'!
Ben recorded the song as part of the process of making his new album 'Rattlebag', which is due out soon. We've had an early copy of the album and it's fantastic.
We've made a little video to go with the song, just clips of us playing, with a brief glimpse of Ben filmed on John's phone at a Gomez gig in Camden!
Hope you like it as much as we do!
And here's our original!

I would like to thank everyone who came down or donated to the Marc McCartney fundraiser we raised all in all around £3000.

Everyone has been great in helping thanks Gary Curtis, Ian Tillotson,Helen Carter, Dec Wolf, Seamus O Hooligan, Matt Mitchell-Waite,Rob Corcoran, Piers Robinson, Sam Woodward, Lazytalk, Nick Welsh, Dj Pauly D, Anna and loads more people you are all stars.
We are throwing a fundraiser for the legend Marc McCartney to help him battle the bastard that is cancer. This event is to raise money directly for him.
He is a great friend, dad, artist, chef and person, so we have put together a little evening with performances from Nick Welsh (ex member of Bad Manners, The Selecter, and Skaville UK), LazyTalk and of course The Elasticated Waste Band.
There will be guest DJs filling in the gaps and a raffle and comps to win exclusive prizes. We are asking that people make a voluntary donation for as much or as little as they can for this worthy cause. So come down and help us raise as much as possible whilst having a great time.
This Friday we're back in action for a night of great music and celebration! As well as a full show from us, we've got a DJ set from Bonanza & Son taking us through into the early hours.
