The Things We Make Gig…

Last nights gig was great. Thanks to all of you who came from far and wide to see it. I’m in the process of organising another one in London at the moment just after we play Glastonbury. More news to follow on when and where.


The current ‘Das Ist England’ vinyl album kickstarter campaign ends tonight at 8 PM. This is your last chance to bid for a signed copy of the album and get the accompanying book. PLEDGE HERE





New Video For “Das Ist England”…


Here’s a great video made by Sally Lifely to the DAF inspired bi-lingual song:

“SAFE (Deine Liebe) I Can’t (Fake it)” taken from the forthcoming “Das Ist England” album by Six by Seven.

We’ve now reached the campaign goal so the album will definitely be going ahead and I will be sending everything off to the printers and pressing plant this week.

It’s a great sounding album and was recorded at Rockfield Studios last December. It’s definitely out there…it’s cosmic and groovy like the Geman bands of the 70’s and early 80’s which I grew up listening to.

Please pledge for the album HERE, there will only ever be 250 of them. The last album The World Hates Me And The Feeling Is Mutual is down to it’s last few copies with Rough Trade already having sold out now and it’s already made it’s way onto discogs.

Pledge now for a signed copy before it’s too late!

Things We Make Souvenir Programmes


For those of you shrewd enough to pledge for a souvenir programme during the Things We Make Maze gig Kickstarter…they arrived today and look super cool and super glossy. I will post them out towards the end of the month to those who bought them without a gig ticket (so they arrive at your door on or around the day of the gig).

The programmes will be at the door for those of you who bought them with a ticket.

Thank you very much to everyone who pledged for these to make them happen.
