We’re excited to announce our latest collaboration with Fruits de Mer—crustacean 73, a four-song EP of songs by The Action and ’60s-era Bowie:

Can’t Help Thinking About Me (Bowie)
Look At The View (The Action)

Let Me Sleep Beside You (Bowie)
Strange Roads (The Action)

If you’re part of FdM’s members club, you probably heard “Can’t Help Thinking About Me” on the end-of-the-year (2015) exclusive giveaway album Changes: Songs Written By David Bowie. (Who could have ever imagined we’d be living without him now?)

Since the release of our cover of that track, Gideon Coe has been kind enough to play it on his Radio 6 show three times. (You can listen to the Peter Tosh in Concert show for 10 more days.) And just yesterday, Tom Ravenscroft, sitting in for Gideon Coe, played our version of “Can’t Help Thinking About Me” right between The Move and The Make-Up. We couldn’t be happier to be included in the lineup. You can listen to the broadcast for another 29 days. We’re second from the top of the playlist.

Thanks, also, to the following internet radio stations for including us in your lineup:

The Sunrise Ocean Bender

Green Arrow Radio

Andy Lewis’ Soho Radio

Pet Sounds Podcast


Can’t Help Thinking About ‘Fashion’

It’s been too long!

We recently covered a couple Bowie tracks—one of which now appears on Fashion, a great freebie for Fruits de Mer members. You can get a taste of our rendition of “Can’t Help Thinking About Me” here, at the 1:20 mark:

To hear the complete track, as well as Cary Grace’s cover of “Black Country Rock,” check out Gideon Coe’s Radio 6 show from 9 November. You can stream the show for eight more days.

For more information about the Fashion freebie CD, give Fruits de Mer a visit here.

Thanks a lot for listening!

Happy New Year!

We hope everyone is enjoying a great start to the New Year! To kick off 2013 with style, we put together a rather fitting montage to accompany the title track off the record. As always, thanks for your continued support!

We’re live at 4th Street Vine in Long Beach, December 8th!

There isn’t a whole lot better than quality beer and wine, except for live music. Come out to Long Beach on Saturday, December 8, and enjoy both! The show begins around 8pm with the fantastic Rockford and ends with our set. Hope to see you there!

Wombleton Records, Highland Park

Origami Records,  Echo Park

Soundcloud update and exciting Shindig! review

We finally added some tracks over at Soundcloud: our cover of “Song of a Baker” and “Should She Stay” off our first full-length record, as well as “Abbey Chatsworth” off the new record.

We’re working on getting our Bandcamp page organized so we can properly peddle the CD and vinyl versions of Venus, Saturn and the Crescent Moon. And speaking of the new record, we’re excited to share the entire Shindig! review when the issue comes out!
