FOUND win BAFTA for Cybraphon

I can hardly believe it but we’ve won a BAFTA for Cybraphon. Sadly I didn’t get to go to the awards ceremony and rub shoulders with the stars but Ziggy and Simon were there to represent. I was stuck in Pitlochry train station in the freezing cold last night while they accepted the award, so […]

NYC: Wednesday – Rockwood Music Hall

NYC: Wednesday – Rockwood Music Hall

We’d arranged to meet the rest of the gang in Williamsburg for breakfast but me and Al were pretty peckish when we woke so we ate the Whole Foods leftovers from the day before (fried egg in a croissant – it’s not been a health food trip). Then we hopped on the Metro for a […]

FOUND busk on 6th Street with FOUND objects

Friday (Part 2)

After the gig at the British Music Embassy we were dragged off by Muslim (producer for Vic Galloway and Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1). He wanted to do a little feature with us called ‘Austin Found’ . . . the premise was that we had to scour the streets looking for objects that we could make sounds […]

This is where things started to go a little weird. That […]

Hot boys in specs

Wednesday

We’ve now been in Austin for a full day and are beginning to acclimatise. Our 20 hour journey was surprisingly smooth and we made it through immigration and customs in Newark Liberty airport without the grilling that I’d been fearing . . . except for a light fingering. It’s going to take a while to […]

Bahn Beat

Bahn Beat

Gav constructed this track on the journey between Hamburg and Bremen in Germany last December while we were over playing our first international dates. Sehr gut Herr Sutherland. Listen to more of Gav’s music on his myspace page. Kev was also working on some gameboy beats but sadly he lost it not long after somehow, […]
