We are not dead. Despite not gigging in a while, or playing with this site much we have doubled our catalogue, and got better and better at recording and self producing. The plan is to recruit a new drummer and hit the gigging scene in a big way. Blowfunkle will return shortly…

Well, well…we’ve been busy. Laid down four and one half tracks which are being mixed and steadily improved all the time. We have a gig – tonight! See details here

We have another gig next week in Kilburn, the spiritual home of Hard Rock in North West London. We play that with some good friends ‘The Dirty Mojos’ and can’t wait to hit that up.

Following this we will be working hard on a single launch, so stay tuned for that.

Hello all. It’s a us, Blowfunkle. We have so much going on it hurts our little heads. We’ve put down a couple of really nice takes of some of our songs, and are scheming the best way of putting them out…more news on this to follow, but very exciting.
We played a great headline set last Friday in Hoston Square, and were fantastically supported by so many people, thanks to all who came!
We have a date next week, which is very close to where we rehearse, so is almost like a homecoming gig! See details here.
We leave you with a pic of the last show!

Sup Daugs.

The summer is almost over, and the freshly rested chaps behind this project are about to spill their juices onto the streets of London and across the pixilated land of the internet…

 

16/07/2013

Well now.

We are pressing through into our summer hiatus, recharging our cells and creative prowess for our autumnal onslaught.

Greetings to all the old men and young scallywags who follow us around here. What a week it’s been. With a great gig at Rattlesnake on Wednesday, well attending and a great show for all.

Looking forward we have some days in the recording studio to come, followed by a drip drab of releases, or depending on how things go a lovely little EP for you all to enjoy. No expense will be spared.

In the mean time expect a couple more videos from us and maybe a press conference of two. The plan is to record and write over the next couple of months, before launching an onslaught of gigs the likes of which our rhythm section has never experienced.

 

26/05/2013

Yo yo Blowfunkle peeps, how you are all well.

A massive thank you to everyone who came down last night, we had a blast – hope you enjoyed it too!

We’re excited to announce we have some studio time booked at the end of June. So expect some recorded tracks, or even an EP of sorts coming your way in the future.

We’ve put another free track up on our band camp, which can be accessed in the top right hand corner there along with the rest of our online presence on twitter, facebook, youtube etc. but if you can’t be bothered becking that out you could always click here.

Have a good one for now, and we’ll catch you at Rattlesnake Islington next week.

Hello all!

The band’s bandcamp site has launched, we’re hoping to get a few live tracks up there for free download as soon as we get round to it. Currently you can get a free download of a live take of our track ‘Sweet 17‘ which has been described by veteren guitarist Paul from vaious outfits including Skinwalker as being ‘…not bad…’. Incredible!

New songs continue to brew in the Blowfunkle melking pot of ideas, which is hotter than the centre of a compost heap. We’re talking huge compost heap here, perhaps on that comes past the nipples.

Here’s a teaser video of some clips from our gig @ The Comedy with Dead or Alive productions last week to enjoy:

Dear friends, lovers and comrades at arms…

Exciting things are happening in the world of Blowfunkle. We have an official gig next week at Piccadilly Circus! See gigs page for details, better details to follow shortly.

We have a stock of t-shirts on the way, designed by an up and coming Italien designer whose name escapes us at this time.

We are working hard on securing more gigs and building up our catalogue of songs. By the last count thre number of orginals stands at a staggering 8.

We are in EP country now chums. So watch out.
