There are a lot. Good luck…
Well that was another amazing Fence Records Festival. Thanks Fence, Eigg, and everyone that screamed & bopped around during our set. Was nice looking out to smiles in the crowd. Also thanks if u bought our album off us.
Today we are launching…
THE OLO SNACK APPEAL!
We are driving for 10 hours to the Isle Of Eigg for the Fence Records Away Game Festival very early on Thursday morning.
We need all the help we can get. Please donate some pennies so we can buy SNACKS to keep us alive. We are poor. We are begging you, this is serious.
Car snacks like choc bars, nuts, corn, ice cubes, cabbage, fortune cookies, plant roots, etc.
Just head over to our special snack page on our website HERE and write in the snack you are donating to us. All snacks cost 50 pence (everyone knows that).
We will take photos of the snacks inside our mouths and tweet them along with the names of the people who paid for them. Maybe we’ll get a chance to return the favour one day and save YOUR life.
