Bitter Ruin are trying to get their new single "Trust" into the charts and you, my friends, can help by buying it on amazon or itunes (there's a video, too).
I'm not just asking because I'm friends with the band but also because they really deserve it and it would be cool to get some fantastic music into the charts.
They are yet unsigned so this could be a big opportunity for them.
Thanks a lot.

Have a look at my Bitter Ruin tag for more about them.

Bitter Ruin played a half hour gig at St. Pancras Station last night (as part of the Station Sessions). The small, flat stage was set up in the middle of the busy shopping arcade with at this time of day (6pm) hundreds of commuters bustling past. There was obviously a group of fans but the duo's strong, unmistakable (and hard to put in genres, they are still looking for one themselves) quickly gathered a sizeable crowd. The sound was superb, despite the huge, noisy space and the tiny looking speakers (tall, thin bose contraptions) which coped perfectly with Georgia's incredible tonal and volume range.
They played a mix of favourites (Trust, Soldier, Beware) and one of their new songs (Leather for Hell) and, almost bizarrely, music that's more suitable for small, intimate venues really worked in this big space. They created, as a friend called it, an "island of difference".
If you have a chance to see them live, do.

The launch party for Bitter Ruin's new album, Hung, Drawn & Quartered was held at the Spice of Life in Soho, in the tiny basement bar.
The venue is on two levels, with the non-elevated stage in a nook at one side end which means not a lot of people can see it well. The light wasn't great, either, but at least there was relatively little red.

And yet more on flickr.

The album is available via the Bitter Ruin website and will also be on itunes soon.

Finally I managed to edit and publish the photos from Saturday night. The sequence of the show was the same, with "The Lost Airman" (Thomas Dolby) taking the role of compere.

The full set is again on flickr.
