Magic Ship set to rock The Clubhouse, West London's newest live music venue. 11th July, it'll be a double set from around 8.30. If you've seen us before. Come again. Tell your friends. If you've never seen Magic Ship live then make the effort and we'll put on a great show for you. Venue details here Oooh...nice carvery!

See you on the 11th.

Last night saw Magic Ship Voguing for the cameras in Brentford, West London. The Griffin, home to Bees fans and home to the Hobbit football film, Green Street. Now home to Magic Ship photo shoot number 1.

Mark Baker (photographer to the stars - Afrika Bambaataa, Celine Dion, Kulashaker et al) was on camera duty and worked hard to make us look good. Hard and fast. Here's how we rolled...
> top of the fire escape stairs
> bottom of the fire escape stairs
> beer garden seated
> beer garden standing
> outside pub against black gate
> outside pub frontage
> inside pub playing cards
> inside pub lounging on bar
> inside pub in front of dartboard
> outside in the street

That took about 3 hours and a dozen costume changes. Scarf on. Scarf off. Jacket on. Jacket off. Scarf *and* Jacket on (keep you on your toes). You get the picture.

Was good fun and we'll let you see the best of the shots on very soon.

Magic Ship wins Classic Rock magazine's Battle of the Bands. After nearly two weeks of intense voting a winner is announced and it's Magic Ship with the title track from their album 'LoveTel Motel'. Read about it here:

Lucky you because you can also download the track for free right here:

You can also buy or download the whole album from Amazon, CDBaby, iTunes, Napster and other good music retailers.

Website updates

Updated the site with song lyrics and chords. These are some of the original chord sheets used when writing, recording and rehearsing the songs for the LoveTel Motel album. Handwritten notes included.

We've also added a load more photos into the photo section. Surprisingly! Some from rehearsals and early LoveTel recording sessions at Airplay studios and plenty more from our live run-ins at the Half Moon in Putney, West London.

If you find the mailing list button on the site doesn't work - try using the ontact page instead to get yourself on the mailing list or just to say hello. We always like to hear comments from random strangers. Particularly if they are not about university degrees or male enhancement pills.

Keep checking back for more good stuff including shots from the upcoming photo shoot and videos from some of our live shows.

Oh - before we forget - download the LoveTel Motel MP3. It's free! Tell your friends. Sweet.

Is this thing on?

Back in rehearsals tonight. Next week should see us at a band photo shoot. More news to follow.
