Just a quick update to let you know we'll be playing at the New Cross Inn on Wednesday 14th December in what will be our last gig of the year. We'll be sharing the bill with good friends Model Railway Exhibition, amongst other bands. There'll be plenty of banter, freckling* and festive cheer... so come on down!!

The Facebook page for the night is here.

Gig at Catch, Tuesday 8th November

Hallo there,

We were hoping to update with some live tracks from Thursday's Agree In The Dark night, but alas, flailing technology has put paid to that. All that remains is to thank everyone for coming down - can't wait to put another one on! (Update - some photos have surfaced).

Anywho, this is just a reminder that we're headlining Catch in East London (E2 8DA) on Tuesday 8th November. More info to be had on the Facebook page. Be good to go electric again.

See you there!!

Gig at Jan's, 3rd November: flyer and update


As promised, more info on the gig at Jan's:

This will be a special night not only because it's the first we're putting on ourselves, but also because we'll be playing a more intimate set (meaning there'll be at least one acoustic guitar knocking around). To mark the occasion we're putting together an extremely limited edition zine with contributions from all musicians on the bill. Get down for about 8pm to get a free copy.

November gigs

A quick gig update- we're putting on our own night at Jan's Jazz Bar in Stoke Newington on Thursday 3rd November. We'll be ably supported by Peter Long and further support TBC. The night will be a slightly more stripped back affair in an intimate bar full of Belgian beers. More details to follow...

On a more conventional note, we'll be returning to play 93 Feet East on Brick Lane on Monday 28th November.

New EP now available for FREE download


Before getting carried away, we'd just like to thank everyone that got down to see us at 93 Feet East on Thursday - it was a great night and we had loads of fun.

Anywho, our new ep, 'What's On?', is now available for FREE download from our Bandcamp page. The download includes all cover art. We have some physical copies which will be available at gigs until they're all snapped up.

We've got a few more gigs in the pipeline for September and October - we'll let you know as soon as everything's confirmed.

In the meantime we'll leave with the EP and the making of...:

Happy listening!!

Last minute gig at the Buffalo Bar

We'll be playing Club Fandango @ the Buffalo Bar in Islington tomorrow night (the 9th), supporting Applicants. You can find out about the night here and download flyers here.

We're first on, so make sure you get there early!

Gig at 93 Feet East and EP

Firstly, thanks to everyone who came down to see us play at the Bull & Gate last week. We've never had the luxury of steps up to the back of a stage before so that was pretty mind blowing!

We're excited to announce that we'll be playing at 93 Feet East on the 1st September, on a night that promises 'old games, new music, drinking, tournaments and much more besides'. Best of all, it's FREE entry.

We're putting the finishing touches to our new EP (read: trying to decide on song names) and hope to have physical copies ready by then.

No Colour Live @ Club Fandango

Hello there!!

We're happy to report that we will be headlining Club Fandango at the Bull & Gate in Kentish Town this Sunday (31st July). Not only that, but we'll also be debuting brand new tracks from our upcoming EP. How exciting!

To find out more check out our Facebook page or the Club Fandango home page.

New track available

After five months cooped up in a hovel in Stoke Newington and 20 nervous breakdowns, countless automobiles in piscines etc etc, we can finally reveal our latest track. It's on the music page, yeah?

It's called 'Hide From Yourself' (until we think of something better).

'The Cruel Sea' played on 6music again

No Colour are featured again on Tom Robinson's BBC 6music show tonight from 1am. The playlist for the show and the iPlayer link to listen again after broadcast will be available here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00xb7d7
