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

Record Collector Magazine’s Modern Collectibles Vinyl Series / IPO Festival

It’s been a long time, but we’re happy to report that our cover of the Bee Gees’ “Red Chair, Fade Away” is on Plankton—A Fruits de Mer Compilation, the first installment of Record Collector’s Modern Collectibles vinyl series. It’s selling for £19.99 plus shipping. Get it now, before it goes for way more on eBay—which it will (FdM’s A Phase We’re Going Through comp just went for $454!).

Also, the International Pop Overthrow festival is currently underway, and we’re playing the L.A. leg of it August at Fais Do Do. Check the SHOWS section for more info.
