We're back in stock

Anybody worrying that CDBaby wasn't going to be able to fulfil their orders for our debut album, 'LoveTel Motel' by Magic Ship, will be pleased to know that it is now back in stock and that we shall be shipping a further amount to avoid any stock shortages in future. By my reckoning, if they sell out again we should be half way up the charts!

We don't want you to think that we've got our heads up our own arses but we are chuffed to blazes by the really groovy reviews that some of our fellow bloggers have been writing about our debut album 'LoveTel Motel'. Read them all and them maybe make up your own mind by getting a copy for yourself or as a present for somebody who you think think will like our brand of music. But don't just take our word for it, read the reviews and see what you think?

There is so much detail from Friday night that it would take a book to get it all out. But here is a rough idea of what went on...It was a *great* show. We took the stage at around 11pm on Friday night. That's well past my bed time. With a stomach full of crisps, fizzy drinks and butterflies I was feeling more liking sitting still than rocking. But as soon as 3am (who kindly loaned their PA) left the stage we were all chomping at the bit to get on and give the crowd a good time. Good time is what we gave. It really was an exciting event, I'm sure everyone of the hundred and fifty or so people that was there would agree. Here are the first few photos that have come dripping through to us. If you have any photos of the night please forward them to us and we will post them up here. Thanks to all of you who came - hope you loved it as much as we did.

Here's what somebody sort of said about it: "I always thought that Magic Ship would deliver a good album, but I never imagined that it was going to be a great album. I got my copy yesterday and played it three times on the bounce."
So if you want to be in with the in-crowd and can't make it to our album launch party this Friday and fancy having Sam's autograph as well, go mad and fill your boots. We'll even throw in a free Magic Ship t-shirt to our millionth customer.

Blimey, these last few days have all been go on the Magic Ship. Website up, album received. Now Col tells us we've had a load of branded T-shirts delivered. Last night was the final practice before Friday's gig at Ye White Hart. It took us a run through to warm up and a second time round the songs to play them well. It'll be something else to play in a big room. In fact something else to play outside the four walls of the rehearsal room.

I like to keep things simple, but at the moment there are so many things happening it is far from simple. Now I see why bands have tour managers and promo teams and web designers and marketing departments and hair stylists and m&m filterers! It means they can go on stage and play and wake up the next day in the next town and play again and keep doing that until they are told to go and speak to the people at Horse and Hound magazine. Then go on Top of the Pops. Then go on stage again. Like being at school or in the army I suppose, but with more fans.
