2014 out of stock

'birth' the debut album from birdbath (and our first ever release!) is now sold out. a poignant moment maybe, but it's available still as a download. some more stock running low, others just bowing ceiling joists and a copy of bloodsmash sitting solitary in a last chance saloon waiting for that final punter...

2013 downloads now available

really pleased to announce that all of our releases are now available to download. all can be bought as a download only for 3.00 from our bandcamp page. also if you want a FREE download when you buy a hardcopy then buy through our bandcamp page (not this site)

2012 trumans water + birdbath & site updates

new music from trumans water and birdbath is now fully released and available to buy from our shop. it's been a good wait - 3 years since our last hard copy release - needless to say there is a cheer in the air!

the scaffold is down the workmen have left and no longer are we 'under construction'. so here it is, finally, a brand new web site that should hopefully be easy to navigate and self explanatory. all of our releases are available to buy from the shop page, some of the older albums at reduced prices. so go now and surf the ingue, constructed actually by our own hands so if you come across a problem then do be kind and let us know
