Let’s go surfin’ now, everybody’s learnin’ how…

Okay, so “Shits & Giggles” is taking a little longer than expected – blame the good weather, the World Cup and a pile of good gigs, but we’re on it, don’t worry…

So there’s still time to enter the cover artwork “competition” if you like – Anything on the theme of the album title, the weirder and wilder the better – had some very weird and wild ones so far too! – email it to us here.

What? Another taster? Okay then – this should rinse the wax out of yer earholes…

crackdown 2 coverOkay, a bit of big news that we’ve been keeping very quiet about over the last six months, is that we’ve contributed a remix to the new XBox 360 game Crackdown 2 – So whilst steaming your way around the (frankly rather awesome) gameworld, you’ll be hit by versions of tunes by Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Public Enemy, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Damned and Blue Oyster Cult, remixed by The Bug, Mistabishi, Dan The Automator, King Cannibal, El-B and Sientific American.

Honoured to be in such excellent company, we’re proud to add to that list our own remix of REM’s “Ignoreland”.

As is the way in such cases, we can’t let you hear the track here – you’ll have to get hold of a copy if you want the full Kleptones-enhanced experience, but believe me it’s worth it – developers Ruffian Games have done a mighty fine job, and pretty much all of the reviews seem to agree…

Quick bit of gig news to add – on 24th July Eric will be heading over to the Czech Republic to headline “Pure Fest”, a one day outdoor event in Mladá Boleslav (about 50km outside Prague). Looks like a seriously diverse range of music on offer, so we’re delighted to be invited to the party – if you’re in the vicinity, get yourself along – It’s our first time in the Czech Republic so it’s sure to be a good one!
