Broadcast #9

by The Mechanisms


As the weather grows wilder and the winds blow away any further ideas I had for alliteration, we have several suggestions for how to keep warm. They do not for the most part involve being set alight by Ashes, so they should be relatively safe.


We have two gigs coming up before Christmas! One is this very Tuesday, tomorrow, October 29th, supporting our old friends Polar Patterns at their Hallowe’en party. It’ll be in the Cellar, Oxford, from 8pm, £5 on the door, and costume and the general ability to have silly fun is advised.

Now, we know that that’s fairly short notice. But don’t worry, we’ll be hosting our own nearly-Hallowe’en gig on Sunday November 10th! It’ll also be held at the Cellar, Oxford, with doors opening at 7pm (again £5 on the door). We’ll be supported by our very own Jessica Law and another local folk many-piece, The Oh So Many. We’ll be playing UDaD alongside a selection of new songs, that it is guaranteed you will not have heard before, so do come along.

And since I’ve mentioned Jessica Law, you should probably be aware that she will again be terrorising the vicinity with her evil folk on December 6th, at the QUILTBAG Cabaret in Oxford.


These won’t keep you warm, unless you print them out and then burn them. This is not a suggestion. At any rate, tales from the City continue to gather on our website. This month we’ve uploaded an account of how Ulysses was persuaded to join the war effort through the actions of their friend Palomedes.

And that’s all for November. We’re at work finishing off the perks for UDaD’s Indiegogo campaign — a quick reminder, the deadline for it being certain that we’ll despatch the perks of your choice, if you have a choice, is Hallowe’en — so look out for a few new singles that may turn up on our Bandcamp soon.

And as the curtain begins to close on the City, another begins to open on the wastelands of Fort Galfridian. Join us on November 10th, and we can tell you more…

Watch the Skies.
