No problem! I would definitely recommend it. So funny that they covered 'Afternoon Delight' and it really works. :lol: :thumb:

I groaned at first...but after listening, I really like their version. :)

When I was, oh I dunno...12, 13? I came home from the mall with a t-shirt from Spencer's clearance bin with a beautiful sky scene and the words "Afternoon Delight" emblazoned across the chest. :lol:

My Mom angrily returned it.

That's when I found out what that meant... :whistle:

Venus suggested I should post a link to my blog with a couple photos from their EP Release Party I was at San Fran Bath House in Wellington on 6th October. So here it is, and if you'd like an audio from that event, you can download it through the link on my blog or straight from here.

Enjoy! :D

Thanks a billion Emira. I downloaded your mp3's (entire show) from the link on your blog last weekend. Since then I've listened to it morning, noon, and night. :prayer: :prayer: It's on my ipod. I listen on the way to work, on lunch break, and on the way home. Everyday. It's pretty amazing. Lots of great music and big laughs.

Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful travel experiences with us. :heart: :hug: :bighug: :thanks: Now I'm off to read your latest blogs on Tauranga, Mt Maunganui, Mitai Maori Village & Polynesian Spa.

Thanks so much for posting the links, emira! The audio recordings are amazing so thanks for sharing them with us. :thumb: Glad to hear that were able to meet all of them including Dan at a later date. They definitely come across as lovely people. I really need to catch them live sometime.

Songs from their new EP "I Love You..." have been getting airplay on British radio recently, namely Steve Lamacq's shows on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6 Music as far as I know. 8)

Afternoon Delight is still a terrible song though. And now all I can think of when I hear the song is this:

Hey everyone, long time 'n all that. Here's a video I took of Bret playing with the WIUO. There's a few swears close to the beginning just so you know.
