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.”
Pete Fijalkowski of Adorable and Terry Bickers of The House of Love have announced a new date at Kranhalle in Munich on Friday July 16th. Further details of the gig can be found on Pete’s MySpace page which can be found by clicking here or via the venue website here.
