1985 - new song uploaded to myspace

A new Tycho song has been uploaded to the Tycho Myspace page. It's called "1985" and it made it's live debut at the VNV Nation gig a couple of weeks ago. The recorded version available on Myspace is unmastered (so it may be a little quieter than other tracks) and it *may* change a little before it's official release on the next Tycho album.

Click on the "1985 Sleeve" (left) to go to the Tycho Myspace page and hear the new song. Hope you like it!

photos from vnv nation gig

Mil Clayton has posted some photos online of Tycho opening for VNV Nation last Thursday night. Due to the tiny stage at the Step Inn, the lighting conditions and ban on flash photography these are a bit limited - there are no photos of Andy and if you squint you can *just* make out Georgina in one shot :-)

Anyhoo - a big "THANKS!" to Mil for posting these pix, which can be seen by clicking on the photo at left - (L to R) Ken, Mark, Ronan and Stephen backstage.

vnv nation + tycho brahe + junk circuit gig details

Tycho Brahe will be opening for the mighty VNV Nation this Thursday night at the Step Inn, along with Sydney's Junk Circuit. I'm not sure of exact running times yet but it *is* a school night so we will be on very early, so get there when the doors open otherwise you might miss us.

Stephen Birt will once again be drumming for us on the Simmons drum kit, and we will be debuting a brand new song that we're very excited about called "1985". It's got cowbells, it's got handclaps, it's 130bpm, what more does any Hi-NRG throwback need?

Also, for the first time in many years, we will have some brand new Tycho T-shirts available! These will be priced at $30, available in black with a new logo design on the front and all of the CD logos on the back. Rats, tridents, stars and broken hearts!

Gig details:

Step Inn, 186 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley, Thursday 14th August, 8pm.

Tycho Brahe first, Junk Circuit (Sydney) second, then VNV Nation.

This is an 18+ event, ID required, tickets are $53.50 thru: http://www.oztix.com.au/ or $54.50 from Rockinghorse Records

vnv nation & devo!

Half of Tycho is currently cavorting around the countryside having caught a couple of shows from the mighty DEVO! Some photos will be posted soon (probably on Myspace), including some from backstage at Melbourne and some from a secret Adelaide location where we had some beers and pizza etc with the guys...

Tycho will be playing an early set this Thursday at the Step Inn with our old mates VNV Nation. We'll be going on super early at about 7:30pm I believe, Stephen Birt will again be joining us on drums, and we *finally* have some brand new Tycho T-shirts if you want 'em, so hopefully we'll see you there. Full details will be posted shortly :-)
