Happy April

Newsletter 

Hello and welcome to our April Newsletter 

Just a big thank you for all the support on the livestream concerts and recent releases, and thank you for your patience, Boys Heart vinyl which should be with us in another 4-6 weeks, but well worth the wait! 

Tomorrow we celebrate Bandcamp Friday, where Bandcamp waive their fees for 24 hours, which is super helpful as we enter our second year of lockdown. 

This is truly a lifeline for us and to coincide with it we are releasing a few very special rarities, under the banner of Classic Vibe 

Check out the fabulous goodies on offer below! 

 

Live in the Living Room 

Here we have two upcoming performances this Friday & Saturday April 2nd & 3rd, where Anna will be dealing with requests during performance, we will be lighting a candle and doing our regular minute’s silence for people who are struggling or have lost loved ones, but also to celebrate positive news too! 

You can find the shows on Martin’s personal Facebook page: 

https://www.facebook.com/mgstephenson/ 

 

Classic Vibe: 

Under the banner Classic Vibe we will be releasing 10” vinyl pre-order entitled Rariteez

1.  Smells of summer 

2.  Marching men 

3.  Drum & sticks 

Some good folks still have the originals and many have been asking us to re-issue them, so we’ve done better. Just like the first four albums, these shirts have been lovingly re-created by the original artist, how cool is that? 

Each T shirt with a poster and free postcard option which we’ve tagged as a ’SET’ but can be purchased individually too. 

Sizes will be:  Small, Medium, Large, XL and also XXL, hopefully covering all bases 

T Shirt:  £20 + postage

Kieran has prepared each poster with a paragraph from a lyric from each album, plus a finely placed snapshot/memoir of the original sleeve. 

Boat to Bolivia 

Gladsome humour and blue 

Salutation Road 

The Boys Heart 

Each poster £10 + postage (includes free postcard) 

Complete set of four posters only £30 + postage (includes 4 free postcards of each poster) 

 

Live @ Glasgow Pavillion 1990 

A gem of a release entitled Live @ Glasgow Pavilion 

A brilliant gig still talked about to this day, somehow found its way into Martin’s hands after a gig a a few years back. 

We do know it was mixed and recorded by our sound man Mr Gerard Rolfe, whose company Coast to Coast hailed from Bradford. 

This is the Daintees in effortless swing, “an absolutely brilliant gig”  were the words of our mastering engineer Mark Lough last week as he was busy mastering. 

The sound quality is outstanding with just one of two authentic crackles. 

Vinyl Pre-order:  £20 + postage 

CD:  Pre-order   £12 + postage 

Additional Download Release:

 

Live in Berlin 1990 

Available by download only:  £7.00 

All merchandise available from daintees.bandcamp.com

Live Shows 

Finally, it’s looking like some live shows might be on their way. 

Martin’s manager Andrew Bailey has began booking some shows from mid July and onwards. 

So it’s looking like the Daintees national tour might yet be happening this Autumn 

Whoopee! 

Hopefully see you at one or two… 

Best 

Martin xx

A wee poem from our Anna 

Home Entertainment 

No accident of birth, but more than…

The connections and reflections 

of a growing community 

forged together in adversity 

or creativity, 

sportingly or other, 

to support and engage or encourage; 

enrage. 

This small army grows limbs. 

Intertwines, 

comes together in our living room 

through the tragi-comic lens of live streaming. 

 

We, unable to make sense of our times 

still need, 

more than ever feel the need 

to reach out and embrace 

the known and the unknown 

but soon becoming known. 

A family in solidarity, 

in grief, in tension-releasing relief 

in laughter, in hope, in banter and in song. 

 

Sharing our pain and mourning together 

raising the spirits, resting the ghosts. 

consoling and yielding 

recounting, revealing 

lighting a candle 

brightening  paths. 

United in strictures that have curtailed, yet 

opening ways to freely  connect. 

 

We the people have formed our own community, 

our family in togetherness 

and we laugh and sing and cry 

and comfort one another. 

We are  parents and children 

and all to each other. 

When we are free 

to walk out again without fear 

we shall carry these days and this family 

in our hearts 

and we will not be alone…           (Lockdown, 2021)

                      Painting of Anna on horseback by Steve Carroll, inspired by the song Martin She Rides Horses'

    I've heard traditional artists portray this as steak versus milk duds: everybody loves milk duds, and loads of individuals don't care for steak, yet steak is sustaining and generous to the individuals who eat it such that milk duds simply aren't. This is somewhat how old-style music sweethearts feel about it, yet I likewise believe it's a loquacious similarity so let me simply say this.

    The t-shirt picture on which the guitar is printed is a sober and simple type of design. I like that. I am thinking that I would recommend this design to my colleagues and recommend them to print London real estate agency logo in the middle of the t-shirt. I think that would create a good impact in front of our customers.
