As promised, we have been scouting around for gigs for later in 2015, and we’re delighted to announce we’ve confirmed we’ll be playing an acoustic set at the Perseverance in Wraysbury on Sunday 28th June.  We’ll be on from 4pm until we get chucked out – we’ll post more details as we have them.  Hope to see some of you there!


The Walls Still Hold A Tune – Press Release

The lovely folk at CloseUp PR have released this press release about our forthcoming fundraising gig with Paul Miro and Polly Phluid, to raise money for Amnesty International.

Really hope to see you there! 🙂

The Walls Still Hold a Tune

Aaaaah. Well, the more eagle-eyed will have noted we sort of fell off the world towards the end of last year.  Alas, real life got in the way, and ending up homeless and broke in some instances and hiding under a duvet in others meant that we were unable to record the album as planned.  Oh no, oh sadness, or tragedy…

OR…let’s say “these things happen” and move on.  And so we are…and we decided that our original album-launch date should become a celebration of resilience and joyfulness – so we’ve turned it into a charity fundraiser for those awesome folk over at Amnesty International.  The event, named “The Walls Still Hold a Tune”, so far features the headline act of Paul Miro, and us and…ooh, we cant tell you the others yet, we’re keeping them a secret until we announce them!  Tickets are available via the link on our gigs page.  Or here.  We look forward to seeing some of you there, for an acoustically-rocking good time for a most brilliant cause.

Here’s to 2015 rocking like it wants to.

Thank you London!

Wow!  What an absolutely amazing and fantastic time we had in London.  Thank you so much guys!  We had great fun rocking out and had loads of people tell us how much they enjoyed it too which really means the world to us.  Thank you!

If you couldn’t make it, there’s a lovely review and a couple of pictures from local music-blogger and all round good-guy (despite the name) the Dark Lord of Barnet which you can find here

And that, as they say in show biz, is us, for a while…we’re going to take a break now for a little while, so there won’t be any gigs for the rest of 2012 and *probably* none in 2013 (although we never say never!)…we REALLY hope that we’ll eventually be back with news of a second album.  We can’t promise anything, but the tunes leak out of our heads anyway, so we might as well record them…so stay tuned, and watch this space.

With massive love and thanks for all your support

Taz, Kate and Rick, Ultraxine 2012.

Catching up with the Xine

Hope you have had lots of fun over the festive period, we certainly did 🙂

We’re currently booking in some gigs all over the country for 2012.  If you’d like to have us play near you, why not ask a local venue?  We will be updating our Gigs page when we have some further info for you. We can’t wait, 2012 is going to be ace!

We’re working hard on some new tunes for you as well – the first one, One Of Those Days, was debuted at our Christmas gig with Obvious Pseudonym and Poet and the Loops – and went down a storm!

Lastly, there are some lovely pictures of us around, playing live! Check out the pics of our most recent gig in Wakefield by Rofanator (John Jowett) on Flickr:

And some from the ace Joel Rowbottom from our Harrogate gig with GMT:

Yours, once again in Rock and Punk and Powerpop,

What we’ve been up to recently!

Well that was an awesome gig!  We really enjoyed playing at The Fenton – we had a couple of sound issues but apart from that a brilliant gig and great atmosphere!  What can you do but keep on playing? 🙂

Thanks so much to the other bands, Chasing Dragons and Down The Machine for a fun night, and also thanks to our brilliant fans for coming down – helped make it a top night. Thanks guys!

The lovely Joel Rowbottom came down too and snapped us – and also presented us with some awesome badges!!!

Check out the results of his photographical awesomeness!

We’ve also just finished shooting a video… more about this later!

We’ll be doing some more gigs this year – currently booking up some more venues all across the UK. If you’d like to put us on, drop us a line –

Rock Out!

July gig news

Hi everyone!

This weeks very exciting news is that we’ve just confirmed a slot for Fridy 10th July at DNE in Wakefield.  We’ll be on stage at 7.45pm, opening for Shield of Steel and GMT.  Those of you with long memories might remember that Bernie Tormé from GMT produced our album last year, so we’re thrilled to bits to play this one.  Massive thanks go to Shield of Steel for getting us on the bill.

Apart from that we’re really busy trying to book MORE dates, so if you’re able to offer us a slot between now and August, or from December onwards then get in touch!

Keep rocking…
