The pair launch their second release on Damnably together, ‘The Boarder’s door’ which follows their astounding 'The Angel's Message To Me' which received extensive BBC 6 music Radio play from Gideon Coe, Steve Lamacq, Tom Ravenscraft and the regional BBC's Bob Fischer and Stuart Baily.
These two legends of post p...unk will play pre WWII blues/ragtime/folk standards in their own inimitable style plus a selection of old and new material from their extensive back catalogues. Prepare to be amazed!
BBC 6Music (Tom Ravenscroft): “wonderful, wonderful,
wonderful record... it's pretty enough to drive you
Sunday Times (Stewart Lee): "admirable levels of
consummate artistry, good taste and obvious musical
chemistry... feels like the duo just struck up in the
corner at the tail end of the perfect party."

Geoff Farina fronts Glorytellers, but is probably best known for the abstract lyrics and jazzy post-punk guitar style he developed over his twelve years with Karate, or as one-half of seminal early-90s duo The Secret Stars.
"Mellifluous jazz guitar, irresistible melodies, and heart-tuggingly understated vocals" - Time Out, London
is one of the hardest working musicians in America and known throughout as a true gentleman. A great guitarist, blessed with a deep soulful songwriting skill and dry smokey voice.
He was a founding member of Codeine; the band that started the Slowcore scene in the late '80s, then he formed Come with Thalia Zedek, now drums in The New Year , plays guitar for Thurston Moore and Evan Dando and most recently in MARTHA'S VINEYARD FERRIES with Bob Weston (shellac). Chris Brokaw is a rare humble genius and one of the finest solo artists of our times.
"Ravaged but beautiful beyond belief, reflecting both the dark, blues-strung grief of Come, and the lean-lined, horizon-fixed heft of Codeine." - Time Out, London
