Yesterday, I went to a screening of the new Descendents documentary ‘Filmage’ at The Roxy Bar and Screen in Southwark. It’s great and I highly recommend you all check it out. It was also a chance to catch up with Carys Lowry-Carter and Ed and Liam from County Trials. Good times.
The band/I have been really quiet. If you didn’t know, it’s because we don’t have a permanent drummer right now. So I’m currently booking solo gigs and persevering through the soul destroying task of looking for a new drummer. Joy.
If you’re a drummer based in London (UK - Please, if you’re in Brooklyn and don’t plan on moving, don’t apply as one guy did!) or if you know any drummers, please get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a manager*, major label interest*, booking agent*, a crushing sense of despair and plenty of bitterness*/ and a major national tour in the pipeline*.

The video above gives a little taster of the band and is of our last show in Manchester, where our old drummer Johnny filled in for us. Enjoy!
I filmed the the last song of Allison Weiss' set at Dingwalls in Camden the other night. It's only an iPhone video, but it came out pretty good. This is 'One Way Love' - which is one of my favourites from her new album 'Say What You Mean' - performed with some of The Front Bottoms. Enjoy!
Hey everyone, our old (and current occasional fill-in) drummer Johnny plays in a band called Will Tun and The Wasters. They’ve just made their very own Rancid video and you should all go take a look. Sadly, it’s missing a cameo from Kelly Osbourne, which is disappointing as I’d doubt it’d cost much, but you can’t have it all.
Why not start your Monday by helping us with an exercise in futility and share this video around? Thanks! If you’re responsible for hooking us up with our new drummer, Jon and I will let you join our new post-rock side-project, ‘Blowjobs In The Dark’. Everybody wins!
