Pete Fij (Adorable) and Terry Bickers (The House of Love) have announced the release of their debut single “Betty Ford”.
A video for the single is below. “It was a ridiculously cold day” says Pete “20 minutes after we finished filming it began snowing, and my body went into shock shortly afterwards. The playback packed up after the first take, so what you see is an unrehearsed first time take, but I’m not sure my body would have allowed any more – I began showing all the classic signs of hyperthermia afterwards and became quite light-headed and disorientated for some hours after.”
Robbie Williams, described as the fat dancer from Take That by Noel Gallagher, took to his blog this week to criticize a whole range of bands from the 90′s including Ride, Adorable and Hurricane #1.
20 years ago this month (March 1993) Adorable launched their debut album ‘Against Perfection’ into the world. To celebrate the album’s anniversary Pete Fijalkowski gives us a track by track guide to the album. He’s also posted an acoustic version of the bands third single ‘Homeboy’ for you to download on his Bandcamp page here.

Pete Fijalkowski (Adorable) and Terry Bickers (The House of Love) have announced some shows in February.
They will be playing live on Friday 18th Feb at Coast Cafe in Worthing (near Brighton), Wednesday Feb 23rd in Paris at Pop In and a few days later on Saturday Feb 26th they will be at Barcelona MiniFestival.
The duo are about half way through recording their album and Pete has stated on the project “We still don’t have a band name – each track we’ve recorded has been under a different name, but we plan to spend the long train journey from Paris down to Spain productively and hope to arrive in Barcelona with a name we can both agree on. Either that or we won’t be talking to each other.”
