Sad to say that Saturday's show at the Half Moon was the last for Col with Magic Ship. Col has decided to leave the band and has plans for something new with brass and backing vocals and more people. We wish him all the best.

Some three years ago, Col placed an advert looking for musicians. Looking for players to start up a band of sorts. At that time we didn't know where we were headed. But an album, numerous sold out gigs and three years later we are all proud of what we have done.

Stick with Magic Ship for a whole new chapter. We have some great new songs to record which have been getting the best feedback at the recent shows and we're looking forward to recording them for the new album.

See us at the Brentford Festival on Saturday 6th September.

Stay tuned for more news as it happens.

Great show at The Half Moon on Saturday night. We had some faithful faces and a fair few seeing us for the first time. We also had dancing! Would you believe it - not just rocking or tapping feet but actual dancing. Long may it continue.

The PA appeared to be not working for the couple of hours before the Trick Noise Makers went on. We appeared unphased as did they. Soundman Doon 'turned it all off and back on again' and fixed the thing. Good job.

Trick Noise Makers put on their usual good show. It's always a pleasure to play with them.

Walk on music was the main theme from 'Where Eagles Dare'. It was suitably rousing.

I got hand cramps and fumbled through the last few songs. It still doesn't feel right.

Looking forward to Brentford Festival on 6th September.

Thanks to Marc for these few photos.


Are You Ready?

We are prepped for the big show on 22nd August at the Half Moon in Putney. We actually practiced twice this week back to back. Playing mid-week rather than a Monday kind of leaves me feeling mixed up. It's very odd. Like a three day weekend. Looking forward to sharing the stage with The Trick Noise Makers. We have a great set lined up with plenty of new material. See you there.
