We are very proud to feature a track on the new Senseless Things Tribute album “Punk, Not Fraggle”.
The album features 15 tracks by 15 bands all covering songs by 90s indie punk pop kids The Senseless Things and is a fundraiser for The Teenage Cancer Trust. We’ve heard it and it’s a corker – every track is a belter (working from great source material of course!)
Our contribution is this version of “Fishing at Tescos”.
The album is only £5 and available here – buy it!
In case you missed it, here’s the link to hear our session on the BBC from this week. Thanks to Ben, Jack, Sarah and the rest of the team for making us feel so welcome.
The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake with BBC Somerset’s Ben McGrail
Are you feeling festive yet? We’ve put together a (hastily arranged) seasonal tune to get you in the mood (it might sound a bit familiar). Please do have a listen and spread the love.
If you missed our live session on Glastonbury FM last week, you can listen again here.
We went on to promote last week’s OxJam show at The King Arthur with Missy Edwards and played 3 songs: shakeSHAKEshake, The Ballad of David Van Day and Whoowee! We’re on from about 26-50mins.
There’s loads of music from other local bands on there too. Thursday Live is a weekly showcase of local music and if you haven’t checked it out already then you should. Big thanks to Ian Liversidge for having us on and making us feel at home. We look forward to popping in again soon.
We are thrilled to be returning for a THIRD time to the fantastic Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival.
Since we last went, it’s been expanded to a 2 day event and added an extra focus upon cider.
“Voted the best UK Chilli Festival of 2014 and the only chilli festival actually held on a chilli farm its easy to see why we are the UK’s favourite”
There’s a great line-up of musicians over the weekend (including some bright young wannabes called The Wurzels) as well as all manner of fun and frolics and AL things chilli including the infamous Chilli Eating Competition.
And yes, there is Chilli Cider.
You can now watch a couple of videos of the band posted on youtube.
It’s beanz a while snakefans. We’ve bean busy. Our Chris has added to the snake family with a dear little baby girly! Huzzah! Welcome to the world lil’ snakette x
We’ve beanz in the studio too and you can now finally hear the results.
We’ve put down 10 tracks – new recordings of Whoo-wee and River Parrett along with The Ballad of David Van Day, Celebrity Laboratory, Bad Dudes, shakeSHAKEshake, Coffee Table Porn (The J-Lo Song), Red Yob Yellow Yob, Glastifarian and Roses on Her Grave.
Two of the tracks, Roses on Her Grave and shakeSHAKEshake have bean added to our Soundcloud playlist.
You can ‘ear ’em here:
We’ve also got a couple of festive live dates coming up.
- New Year’s Day you’ll find us returning to The King Alfred in Othery. Come nurse your hangover with us!
- January 18th we’re playing at a Wassail in Low Ham – doing our bit to make sure there’s enough cider for us all next season. Come join the appled fuelled silliness.
Anyways, if we don’t see you before, have yerselves a Merry Lidl Christmas and a Happy Nude Ear!
Finally we’ve got our act together and put together some sort of half-arsed attempt at a demo. We’ve been experimenting with recording at Eli’s (Rose & Crown, Huish Episcopi) where we rehearse in a little back room charmingly called ‘The Gentlemen’s Kitchen’ (there’s something almost rather romantic about such old-fashioned mysogyny).
We’ve always liked the sound in there (although maybe it’s the cider) so stripped back to basics and single miked a couple of run throughs. You can now find the tracks on Soundcloud or listen to them here. Let us know what you think!
