Out next week (December 15th) on Jaymo and Andy George’s Moda Black label comes the new EP from one of the labels shining lights, Hauswerks, aka Leeds producer Colin Barratt.

Here’s an apology. We tried and tried so hard to bring The Wave Pictures to Sheffield for the viewing and aural pleasure of the music loving masses of the Steel City in one of our Backseat Mafia presents evenings, but (and this is for the second time) the dates just didn’t work out. So, sorry. …

West London based three piece Bear’s Den, aka Andrew Davie (guitar, vocals), Joey Haynes (guitar) and Kev Jones (drums, bass) have already had a good 2014.
