3 Ls

...word to Tom Robinson of 6 Music who played us again this week. He says we are good and I believe him. Look out for continued play on his show amongst others.

We are playing this Saturday, 12th at the Enterprise in Camden. We are on about 10. It's a Camden Slags Club Night so there should be a duck-load of fun to be rolled in small pancakes and consumed.

After that we are on at Wash Your Hands on May 21st. This is located at the Social, W1 and is an excellent evening of bands and music for only 3 spats (£s). It frequently features famous guest appearances and so is worth coming to if only on the off chance that you could touch Kate Moss or something.

More on the horizon but let's live for today... or this month at the most.

It's been a while... we have been busy writing songs. it's what makes us get through the day.

An update:

Alex James from the Evening Standard, 4Radio, and some band called Blur has been bigging us up on his show and in his collumn. He said, 'They should be flying around in jumbo Jets with songs like that... they are particularly good.' Thanks Alex. Your band is good too, let's call it quits and you can let us support you on your next massive tour.

We were played on radio 6 again
A big thanks to Tom Robinson who played us on his show last week. He adds himself to many other radio 6 dj's along side other jockies from other stations to be pumping out our stuff.

Thanks to all of you.

Next gig is April 5th at the little Betsey Trottwood.

Trees trees trees

For those of you who don't know the original, welcome to the best song you have heard in a while. The new Single version of 'Wood For Trees' is up on our myspace page and sounding as sharp as hell.

It is one of the tracks recorded at Tom Ravenscrofts beautiful house and sits proudly on our album.

Tell us your thoughts as we expect them to be good.

We love it and hope you do too.

NEXT GIG: 12th February at THE OLD BLUE LAST, old street.

Wednesday, January 24, 2007 review

nice words written about us by

"Being downstairs in the Cross Kings is like being inside a cartoon. The walls are covered in brightly coloured graffiti, there are some nice sofas and the bar was stuffed with moustached indie boys (oh come on, could you ever take somebody under 30 with a moustache seriously?) and girls constantly taking pictures in a "That's totally my new MySpace picture. No, THAT'S totally my new MySpace picture …" style. With all this in mind, The Fourers had a lot to compete with.

And compete they did. The band have just finished making their debut album in John Peel's basement, and it's easy to see why the late tastemaker would have approved. Their music takes mid-nineties indie vocals, throws in 80's-style keyboards, and shakes in influences from every end of pop and rock (one song even sounds like a sci-fi cover of Orson's 'No Tomorrow' which is brilliantly weird). It's catchy, unashamedly poppy, sing-a-long music to dance to, given an edge by strangely mournful vocals that lift it above the usual catchy pop. Crowd favourites included the hotly-tipped songs, 'Wood For The Trees' and 'Laptop'.

If the band's performance hadn't won me over, their politeness would have done. You have to love a band who claim that they can only do one song in the encore because they've run out of songs. Now, that's honest."

we had more songs but we wanted a drink.

next gig: Old Blue Last, 12 February

get down

hi, how are you?

As you know, The Fourers play at the Cross Kings, 126 York Way, Kings Cross, N1 0AX this Saturday 20th Jan. 5 minutes walk from Kings Cross and serves great food and drink.
£3 on the door if you say you are there to see the Fourers. We are on about 9...

To excite you a bit more, we have another new track up on myspace/thefourers
It's called 'Any Friend' and you will find it impossible to remove from the inside of your head.

Comments welcome as always.

Go have a look at dog judo if you fancy a laugh.

Can't see the Wood for the Trees

Nearest and Dearest.

We have removed Wood For Trees from the myspace page as the new version of it is almost due to be born and we didn't want the old version to get all jealous and feel uloved when you all coo over the new arrival. Also, as one friend pointed out, it had reached 6666 plays and that has got to be a sign of possesion

Enjoy the older tracks that are up there and if anyone would like to hear any other 'retro' Fourers tracks, drop us a mail and we may put them up for a few days, in this, our gestation period.

After that, get ready for some shit hot new songs and recordings.

smell you later.

the Fourers

p.s. it is still on our normal web site if you get upset.

The tale of the Fourers

Once upon a time the was a band called the Fourers who ran into the enchanted woods to capture 12 magical songs. There adventure was the most wonderful of tales and the magic songs they captured were the perfect amount to put on an album...

well done the Fourers and well done to the great wizard Byrne, Tom the troll, Archie the hilarious child and the kind family Ravenscroft.

Now we are back in the stinking city and stuff is being done to our harvest of magical tracks. They are being poked and prodded and many different people from far and wide have come to witness them.

This is the reason we have not been in-touch lately... loads going on behind closed doors.

Get ready, we will be back soon with lots and lots of things for you to get involved with.

Until then,

The Fourers

Where are the Fourers?

Dear friends and strangers.

The world is feeling like a bursting full rucksack at the moment, and in it we are packing a dozen or so songs to record for our debut album.

We are leaving the smoke-filled streets of our native London for the beautiful countryside that is Suffolk, to record at our friend Tom's house and home throughout September.

In recent months we have started working with a few people from what is known as the 'Music Industry', some of whom we hope will be involved with the release of our recordings into the wild. The long and short of it is, we are well excited and can't wait to play our new music to you all.

In the mean time, Wood For Trees (non-album version) is in Rough Trade on 7", and we will be back gigging in London in mid/late October.

See you then.

Yummy, Seafood

The Fourers locamotive pulls into Norwich tomorrow to support Seafood on their East of England gig.

Always a pleasure to go to our spiritual home and it will certainly be great to see Seafood play their new album. Anyone who would like to hear a bit should click on them in our 'top 8 friends' bit.

7" of Wood for trees should be back this week and the album is coming together like a sex scene in a hollywood blockbuster.

Stay Sharp.

Vive la BBC

Nearest and dearest.

A good week for us. 'Wood for trees' got played on Gideon Coe's radio 6 show on Thursday and has sparked a lovely big responce. Thanks to those who emailed us or them to say you liked it.

And of course we also supported CORD in Norwich which was great. Again, thanks to them and to all the people who said kind things afterwards.

here is a rather favorable BBC review of it:

hoxton tomorrow and some exciting news on the way too. mmmmm
