New EP news plus Bass player news

Hi Guys,

We can't wait to share some exciting news with you - we are planning to record a new EP! We have loads of new songs, some of which you may have heard if you've been along to our recent gigs and now we've played them to live audiences – with fantastic feedback – we're ready to think about getting into the studio. We have some brilliant musicians and sound engineers lined up and hopefully we will have solved our bass problem by then (more on that later ....)

What's really exciting is that we have a great opportunity to fund the project through a website called PledgeMusic, which specialises in crowd-funding for music projects. Please don't switch off; I'm not going to ask you for money – just for five minutes of your time! Here's the thing: PledgeMusic will only get involved with bands that already have a certain number of subscribers to their websites. They want to be sure that recording projects being proposed have a reasonable chance of success, based on the band's following. As you already follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Stumbleupon, Facebook or ReverbNation, you've been kind enough to take an interest in our music and we'd be sooo grateful if you would visit our website, www.pimlicoroad.co.uk, and sign up to receive our newsletters. That's all! Every new subscriber will bring us closer to the number we need for PledgeMusic to let us go ahead with our crowd-funding campaign and you'll get a free download. So please, make a Pimlico happy & help us along the Pimlico Road by signing up on our website! On a different note, our double bass player revolving door continues to spin. Having parted company with Frank, we teamed up with the flamboyant and talented Dakota Jim who played two gigs with us before leaving (in some haste!) for Syria! We hope that the two things were not linked ... Much head scratching and then the door revolved again and we had a call, out of the blue, from the wonderful Betty Davila. Big smiles all round! It's early days but we have high hopes that Betty will not be heading to Syria any time soon. See ya on the Pimlico Road, Keif

The Latest news from the Pimlico's

Hi folks, after a successful week ending in a great gig in London at the" Magic Garden" in Battersea  and three radio plays on " The Alan Hare Show" and "Folkspot Radio" and lastly on "Dave Gurman Show!  I thought what next!  Well after a couple of phone calls, we've added a return gig joint  top of the bill with another great band "The Collector" at The Honeywood la Acoustic Club. Which should be a great end of season gig at one of Gary's Clubs.

Next up!  We managed to get our first festival appearance at the "Horsham Garden Music Festival"  we have a forty minute slot at 5.40pm on the 29th of July. that we're really looking forward too, Gary will be playing again with us but unfortunately Stephen Cass can't make it for this one but fortunately we have managed to get the sevices of another great drummer Graham James Baldey,  that after seeing him  play at GJs with April Biggs an Gary at  Storrington, I am sure  will do a great job.   Soon we intend to video some new songs "Live from the Lounge" we're just waiting for Holly to get over a really bad cough/chest infection! she picked up just after our last gig in London, reckon it was the " ye olde London  smog ! " certainly the soooo wet weather we've been getting hasn't helped, what a summer!  be real good to see ya'll at one our gigs, so keep an eye on here for all our latest news. See ya'll on the Pimlico Road, Keif x

Hi folks well the EP's taking a little longer than first thought ! But I think it'll be worth the wait "Losing Carolina" is finished and by the the reaction we're getting I think it must be good if I say so myself, Julianna is all but done, we went in the studio the other day and got most of "It's too late" done" so now on the 27th of this month wer'e gonna finish this thing off. If anyone want's to donate some cash we'll do the album! We're thinking with artwork,packaging, and all the legal stuff the end of May it should be ready fingers crossed.before that on the 15th we're at the Grey lady lounge in Tunbridge Wells for a 30 min set and then two days later we go to the Winchester Folk club supporting "Pilgrims Way" In June we have our first gig in London with 2 x 45min sets at the "Secret Garden. more details to follow nearer the event. really looking forward to that one.... until next time, see ya'll on the Pimlico Road.

Hello All! Been a busy couple of weeks - firstly we went on the Alan Hare show on Medway Hospital Radio. We were there for two hours playing songs, lots of chat and spinning some of our favourite tunes. We played about 8 of our tracks - most of which are now up on Facebook and when I suss it out I will get them onto here. Thanks to Alan for that - we had a great time. For any of you that are interested the whole show, in audio, is on soundcloud and the link is on our Facebook page. Next up we went back to Eversfield Studios to start mixing the tracks for the EP. Losing Carolina is finished and sounding really cool and Julianna is nearly finished (turning out to be a bit of an epic!). That's two down and two left to go. We go back on 31st March to record and mix the last bits ... (well maybe one more session needed. It seems to be taking ages but I think it will be worth it). Moving on, we played headline at Coolham last Friday with Gary Holder on double bass and Stephen Cass on drums. It was great to play in full band mode and again most of the gig was recorded on my new gadget (iPhone) and there are clips up on Facebook and Youtube (its Pimlico Road1 on Youtube!). We had a ball and hope to be back at one of Gary's venues soon but before that we have the Winchester Folk Club and the Grey Lady Lounge in April (see our page for details) and then we will be taking a short break for Holly to do her GCSEs (Good luck Sweetheart!). That's about it for now. See y'all soon on the Pimlico Road. Lataaar, Keif x
