We've only gone and bloody released a new album on iTunes

Sorry about the delay - we got distracted by Twitter (@amateursuman / @amateuradam) but we know where we really belong. On a good old-fashioned, difficult-to-remember-to-update blog.

Anyhow, our new live album is up on iTunes now. You can hopefully click to it here. It's on Amazon mp3 as well over here if you'd rather.

It's the best of our songs from the last few years, plus plenty of new stuff. We've popped a few tracks from the new album on YouTube (as well as a little Michael Jackson tribute - it's what he would have wanted...)

50% of our royalty goes to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Disaster Egg

I thought I was being organised, buying an Easter egg a month early.

It was quite a posh one and I thought it would be the perfect gift.
The egg looked stunning; wonderfully decorated.

When I got it home, I studied it through the box - it was magnificently detailed, like a bronze statue.

But I stupidly left it out in the kitchen.

The sun doesn't get very strong there; however I didn't consider that the plastic packaging would act like a lens, focusing the sunlight into the box.

You'll notice there's a sizeable "exit" burn in the back of the egg as well.

I can't give this away now.

I don't know what to do with it.

No idea.

Oh well...

Happy Chocolate Day Easter everyone

Apparently blogs are *so* 2003. So as we can keep right up the moment, we've also joined Twitter. (EDIT - which is apparently already *so* 2008)

Follow us at amateuradam and amateursuman, and follow the mundane and banal intricacies of our ongoing lives, if that's what you're into.

You see

I forgot my password for Blogger, and it asked me the security question to get my password back, and it was "What is your dog's name?" but I don't have a dog - I must have panicked when it asked me for a security question, so I had to email the tech people at Blogger, and they took ages to reply. I'm sorry, alright? Here's your blog entry:

We're super-crazy-busy at the moment recording and mastering and whatnot for a new live album. As a cheeky little taster, here's a brand new exciting and exclusive track:

Christmas Number 12

We've popped it into the Musical Comedy Awards 2009, and we'll appreciate it a bundle if you could take the time to vote for it. Thank you thank you thank you.

I'll be back soon. And, in case I forget, I'll write it here - the name of my imaginary dog is "bundleoflovefeaturescoochycoochydogface". How could I have forgotten that?
