schmoozing with tycho

[schmooze (shmooz) - verb. To converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.]

After threatening to do so for several months, I've started a new photo album on our Myspace called "Schmoozing With Tycho". Its basically happy snaps of various Tycho members conversing casually with other assorted muso types, gaining advantages and, errrm, making social connections. There are only a handful of photos up at this time, but the album will be added to regularly over the next few days/ weeks.

You may have also noticed a few photos have appeared in the main Myspace album, these are courtesy of Angus Young, taken during the recent Sydney show with The Human League. Some photos from the Melbourne show are also on the way, when they're all sorted out I'll see that they're posted and let you know...

gig saturday april 18th

There's no rest for the wicked! Having barely recovered from our interstate supports with The Human League, we are playing a show at Brisbane club Atmosphere with local lads Leaders of Men. Depending on how things go at rehearsal, we are hoping to give a couple of new songs their live debut, and maybe dust off a couple of oldies that haven't been performed live for years. This will be an intimate gig in a relaxed atmosphere (no pun intended), and we'll be playing for a little longer than usual.

Where: Atmosphere at the Tank Hotel, 371 Queen St, Brisbane

When: Saturday 18th April, doors open 8pm, Leaders of Men early, Tycho Brahe 11pm.

How much: $12

There will also be giveaways of the new Depeche Mode album "Sounds of the Universe", and it's Robert Smith's 50th birthday, so trowel on that eyeliner and wear something dark!

tycho returns

It would have seemed inconceivable in the early days of Tycho that we would someday be touring with the world's most successful synthpop band, The Human League. Not only have we now done so, but we acquitted ourselves very well under logistically near-impossible circumstances, with band members and equipment at times spread across 3 states. Once we've gathered our wits a full tour report will be posted, but to summarize - we kicked arse!
