Peggy Sue Play The Songs of Scorpio Rising

In Spring 2011 we were invited to perform a live soundtrack to a film at a temporary cinema in Hackney, East London.

"Star Over," a Hometapes holiday album

"Star Over," a Hometapes holiday album
FREE (at its bandcamp) with the option to DONATE any amount to Smallwater and their efforts to rebuild the Rockaway, NY community in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

Thirty-five tracks that travel through time, space, and the past few years of Hometapes holiday albums, Star Over is the music we’re listening to as we close our eyes, grab your hand, and step off the cliff edge of 2012. Juxtaposed in new ways — and including brand new additions by Chris Rosenau (also of Collections of Colonies of Bees & Volcano Choir), The Caribbean (a collaboration with Insect Factory), Keith Sunset (also of CYNE), and Sunless (Hometapes’ own Adam Heathcott) — these songs are the recipe for the sunrise and sunset of the hardest and best year of our lives. --Hometapes

Cults Percussion Ensemble

"The Cults Percussion Ensemble must have one of the best group names of all time. To many it will immediately come across as something sinister, a touch spooky and possibly a bit dramatic too. They are certainly two of those but the use of the word “Cults” here is easily misinterpreted. Cults, in this case, is the suburb of Aberdeen. I’m going there next week in fact, with a strange costume.

This is the only album by the group. Assembled by percussion teacher Ron Forbes in 1976, the average age of the students was just 14. They came from a few of the schools in the area, including the Cults Academy, Ellon Academy, Aboyne Academy, Inverurie Academy and Powis." --Jonny Trunk
