Fabio's Overture Single Cover

4th of July is nearly here!

4th of July… we all know what that means. Well, we would if it meant the same to everyone.

The French, on the 4th of July 1634, founded the city of Trois-Rivières in New France, later to become the Canadian province of Quebec.

To people from the United States it means remembering Independence Day, first declared in 1776.

On the 4th of July 1827, slavery was abolished in New York.

On the 4th of July 1865, the first edition of “Alice in Wonderland” was published.

The 4th of July also happens to be the day that I had my first proper conversation with my beloved…

BUT!! In the context of what is essentially an announcement of musical significance, there is something more pressing about this particular 4th of July; as tomorrow sees the release of our second single ‘Fabio’s Overture’.

As with our first single, you can get a copy from the usual suspects; Amazon, iTunes, GooglePlay Store, Spotify, WiMP, Rhapsody etc, but if you can’t wait that long then head over to our Youtube channel to check out the promotional video.

We hope you enjoy it!

Thought for the day

“Because you have things like ‘American Idol’ and you’ve got radio stations that play music made entirely by computers, it’s easy to forget there are bands with actual people playing actual instruments that rock”. – Dave Grohl

Morning all!

It’s a beautiful day!! Some might say that it’s a perfect day for getting a cold beer and relaxing to the sounds of some top local bands (hint hint!!)

Yep, in case the hint wasn’t too obvious, tonight’s the night! Get yourselves down to the Rainbow on Digbeth high street tonight for some marvelous musical mayhem. Doors open at 6.30pm, we’re on around 9pm. It’ll be great to see you!

Hot and Sticky…

What’s hot and sticky?

A Stick on a bonfire.

What else is hot and sticky? Well, this afternoon we’ll be getting hot and sticky for your benefit. That’s right.. your benefit! This afternoon will see the Nine Dart Finish boys taking part in the final shoot for the new single’s video (coming out in June!). Apparently, the big G, or whoever you like to think sits up in the clouds dispensing wisdom and freakish weather conditions, has blessed us with another sweltering day. Normally I’d be embracing the sunshine (not literally; that would be inadvisable) but this afternoon we’ll be hiding indoors in our top secret location, playing our guitars, bashing the drums, doing all the things that Michael Fish would advise you not to do in a heatwave.

So if you’re out enjoying the sunshine today, think of us… and as the great Freddy Mercury once said.. “if you guys wanna move around and shift your asses a little… It’s okay by us. You can take all your clothes off if you like too”*

Switch FM

Nine Dart Finish are going to be on the radio (again!)!!!!!

As lots of you know, we’re using this month of April to get the next single ready for release, shooting a video for the single, getting physical C.D production sorted, planning merchandise, you know… doing band stuff. Generally though, most of the stuff we’ve been doing this month will have gone unnoticed by you lovely people as it’s the quiet (boring) stuff… However,

One thing that definitely shouldn’t be going unnoticed by you lovely people will be happening tomorrow. Tune in to Switch FM between 1 and 4pm to listen to Stoo’s Daytime show (107.5FM in the midlands, or you can listen online here) and listen out for the dulcet tones of Nine Dart Finish.

Doing band stuff

Sunday isn’t the day of rest for us, we’re doing ‘band stuff’. Inflicting grammatical pain on Chris and toying with his ‘flow’. Not too sure how Chris feels about us messing with his flow but it’s all for a good cause, we’ve got band admin to do and emails to compose to important types.

A lot of you will have bought our debut single this week, and we can’t thank you enough. Make all this hard work worthwhile and get yourselves down to the Victoria on the 28th of this month and let’s end the month in style. You’ll have had plenty of time to listen to the single by then so we’re expecting you all to be singing along!

It’s Single Eve!!!

The sun’s finally back after the winter misery and what better way to celebrate than to buy a copy of ‘You don’t bother me’ – possibly one of the sunniest tracks you’ll hear this year!!

You can pre-order on Amazon now but if you’re the kind of person who likes to (figuratively) queue outside shops waiting for the doors to open then set your alarm for midnight and get shopping. Buy it!!! Buy a copy for your friends, even better, buy one for your Mum – she’ll love it.

Cheers!!!
