Newsletter June 

Hello and welcome to June’s newsletter 

Lets hope the nice weather holds out, such a lift 

Boy’s Heart vinyl 

Finally the Boy’s Heart vinyl arrived, I dropped all copies off at the post office this afternoon after 3 hours of packing 

It’s a long process doing vinyl but truly worth it and is proving to be having a revival 

Thank you so much for your support and patience with this process x 

New Daintee’s album:  Howdy Honcho 

Sleeve design by Phoebe Stephenson 

Will now be available as a pre-order only on both cd & vinyl from 8am tomorrow morning, which is ‘Bandcamp Friday’ being the first Friday in June, where Bandcamp waive their taxes on musicians for 24 hours, this has been a huge help to the musical community throughout the lockdown. 

This is a corker of an album and to support it we shot a wee fun video of one of the tracks ‘Harmonica Man’ recently with a few friends 

The album features Dunn Brothers and Chris Mordey, Charlie Smith drumming and also Spider McKenzie the ace harmonica man to which the song and video are dedicated to, it also features Bruce Michie on Sax and Anna Lavigne and Angie McLaughlin on backing vocals 

Some killer songs on this long awaited album featuring some titles here 

Witches Ride, Harmonica Man, Punks of Harajuku, Wild Red Rose and Tides, but we want to keep the rest a secret and a nice surprise when it reaches you, it’s a class album x 

We will be making one of the songs free as a download with the pre-order

Missing Tee Shirt Controversy 

Finally a resolution has been sorted for the delayed 20 or so tee shirts due to DPD losing the damn package and not communicating and failing to respond properly 

Hence we have been sitting for two weeks waiting for DPD to take responsibility but no chance apparently, still Awesome Merch have stepped up to the mark and are reprinting the 20 or so shirts that didn’t make it 

These will be with me on the 14/06/21 and will be despatched ASAP, I can but only apologise for the terrible cock up :-( 

Thank you so much for your support 

It’s an honour making the music
