Should probably update this properly again soon.
HEY! It’s been a pretty quiet summer for us (mostly due to me being locked up writing a ridiculous amount of words) but we’re busting out of our hovels to play at this rather awesome looking festival in a few weeks: https://www.facebook.com/events/337893476294971/ You should definitely all book yourselves a ticket and come along, it’s going to be fantastic! And just look at the...
So we’re going to be played on the Amazing Beats radio show this Friday, sometime between 7pm and midnight! It’s a dance music show, so we’re assuming it’s one of the Treehouse remixes that’s going to be played - but we don’t know so you’ll have to listen in to find out (as will we). This is how you can listen: Through the website...
Here’s another little review of Treehouse. Nice. Though it wasn’t us who described what we do as lo-fi/electronic wizardry - that was from a different review! Not quite that arrogant… http://beatthestatic.wordpress.com/2012/08/07/collider-treehouse/
The very nice people over at Echoes and Dust have written a very lovely review of Treehouse. Here it is: “You know how you drive or train through a cutting sometimes and can see the different layers of soil, clay, slate and other previous crusts of the earth. Some layers are only there a few seconds, most change thickness, approach and decline. They tell different stories, have different...
Hawking our wares
We thought we should try and give the single another little shove, since we’re rather proud of it and hope you’ll have a listen and maybe even buy yourselves a copy, so please head on over to the Ziggurat Creative bandcamp page linked below and wrap your ears around it. If you do buy it, it’ll help the lovely Ziggurat boys to be able to afford to put out more records by more...
Launch gig euphoria
Last Friday’s launch gig for Treehouse was incredible. Huge thank you to Wombat Wombat and Norwich Arts Centre for having us, Ryan for doing sound, Scott for lights and Franco for our visuals.

The Wehtam Yelthgiek Remix - second placed entry...
The Karl OFF Remix of Treehouse - the winning...
And the winner is...
Yep, it’s time to announce the winner of the Treehouse Remix Competition! (Although if you listened to BBC Norfolk Introducing last night you’ll already know as we gave them a little exclusive on air) So. This was tough. Over 20 people downloaded the stems for this contest and the quality of entry was exceptional, which is why it’s taken us a bit longer than we’d originally...

We’re featured as this month’s band of the month in the Audioline feature of Outline Magazine! You can read it online here: http://t.co/DHXltJ1k or pick up a physical copy from many places around Norwich, including the Arts Centre on St.Benedict’s Street amongst others.
Last night at the B2 we played a brand new song, Dinosaur, for the first time. Thankfully we didn’t cock it up and it seemed to go down really well! If you come to Norwich Arts Centre on the 22nd of June for our single launch you ay just be lucky enough to hear it again… Big thanks to Starsexplode for putting last night on and for having us, and to the Delta Belters who opened and...
Just noticed that we’ve gone over 1000 plays on the preview of Treehouse on our Soundcloud! Thank you everyone who’s been listening!

You should come! https://www.facebook.com/events/263266020428360/
David Willetts is the man responsible for the tripling of university tuition fees and the introduction of the White Paper which sets out the Coalition’s plans for the wholesale privatisation of Higher Education. These actions also allowed for Edward Acton and his cronies at the University of East Anglia to close down the School of Music through scaremongering and number manipulation. In...
Been messing around with the theme for our Tumblr page and for now have settled on this one. Has anyone got any thoughts on the matter/suggestions for more suitable/better ones we could look at? Let us know!
And we're back!
Yep, the Collider website is now back up and running! Big thanks to my brother, Jim, for getting all the hosting stuff sorted for us. Pop on over to see what treats await you. www.collider.org.uk
If anyone tried to email us between around 7pm last night and 9am this morning to our firstname.lastname@example.org address we may not have received it as we had to change servers overnight. It’s up and working again now but you may like to try again if you’ve not had a reply from us. This should mean, too, that we will be able to get our website back up and running again shortly, which...

It's been a while...
Sorry about that. With Facebook, Twitter and our currently poorly ‘proper’ website to maintain, I’ve let the ol’ Tumblr account slide quite a lot. In fact, it’s been at least a year since we posted on here, which means any of you who only follow us here and nowhere else will probably have missed out on our debut 7” single, Snakes with Wings, released by Ziggurat...

Good day. I SAID GOOD DAY SIR! We were feeling a bit left out of all this Tumblr lark so thought we’d go ahead and bite the bullet. Like a baby, it’s probably never going to be the right time to start a blog, but what the hell, let’s just do it! So. This first post is just to say hello and, if you’ve stumbled upon us, welcome. There’ll be more I’m sure...
