about the lack of updates lately, things have been really flat out in
camp Specimen. In between touring with Radio Birdman & The Gimmies
(Japan) we have found some time to record a new track called 'Good
Times Gone'. We recorded it ourselves on a old 8 track with a 1 Inch
tape machine. It's going to be released as a Split 7" with The
Blacklist. Due out on Stolen Records early September...
Specimens will also be releasing a new single to Australian radio,
called 'One Man Rampage' on the 25th of July. It will be the fourth
single from taken from 'The Quick & The Deaf'. Would be great if
you could drop by www.abc.net.au/triplej/net50/default.htm and give it
news also for fans in Europe, Scandinavia & the U.K. It's now
looking like we will be arriving in November for about 6 - 8 weeks
worth of shows. The Quick & The Deaf will be released in the U.K,
Germany, France, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Italy,
Spain, Sweden, Norway & Finland on the 3rd of September.
The new guest book is up and running so make sure you drop by and leave us a message!!!
Looking forward to catching you at a show soon :0)
