Good news, bad news

We’ve got some good news and some bad news. Which would you like first?

Oh, alright then – the bad it is. Our keyboard player Vinnie Ransome has decided to leave the band. We’re enormously grateful for the fantastic contribution she made to The Sweet Nothings – with her synth, with her voice and with her wonderful personality. We’d like to wish Vinnie the very best with everything she does in future, musically and otherwise, and we’d urge you to follow her band The Mini Skips. We’re sad to lose her from the band but we’re very happy still to count her as a friend.

We will be looking for a new keyboard player/second singer right away. Give us a shout if you’re interested, or if you know someone who might be. The Sweet Nothings are an equal opportunity employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community except Kasabian fans.

Good news? Two ace popshows, people! Until we get a new keyboardist we’re playing on in  Awesome Power Trio format. And we’re starting next Thursday. It’s part of BBC Radio 6Music’s imminent takeover of Sheffield (or Sheffield’s imminent takeover of BBC Radio 6Music; we’re not quite sure which). In short, the estimable Mr Steve Lamacq is doing his Roundtable show at the Crucible theatre and we’re playing the aftershow party at the Harley with Hey Sholay and Best Friends. Cor!

Then at the end of the month we’re in That London! It’s a Spiral Scratch popshow in That London’s Trendy Hoxton, with The Hobbes Fanclub and The Tuts. Cor again!
