We've had a few messges recently about what we are upto..if anything.... so thought it was about time we said hello.
Things in Viva Stereoland have been quiet since the release of our last album. Due to life, work and all those kinda committments we've decided to have a wee break from Viva Stereo this year after 10 years of gigging.
However things are still continuing in different forms.
First of all myself, Doug and Tim have been writing a load of new songs for a new as yet titled band. Its been fun to start from scratch and do something new and not having Stuart turning up drunk to practices(joke!)
Stuart on the other hand has been djing his psych rock soul 7" collection across the midlands and still runs his regualr club night in leicester.
In more exciting news his musical project in leicester 'Children of Leir' have just released their debut album. Its well worth a listen especially for fans of Spacemen 3, Neu, Moon Duo, Wooden Shjips and that kinda stuff. Its up on soundcloud here

That Illusion of the End is a dark monster isn't it? Oranj is great too. I'm a sucker for long moody tracks that seep into the head. Can be a bit of a head f**k sometimes but I do it too.
Hoping to find an opportunity to stream some more later but thanks for the heads up and good luck with your new project. I often take a busman's holiday from the core stuff when I feel I've got as far as I can. A change is as good as a rest and when I do return it's usually with a fresh approach so don't give up on Viva Stereo. I hope you return fresher and better and stronger.
Spot on too, we just felt after 4 albums we'd taken things as far as we could really but we still enjoy the recording process and playing live togetehr so a wee break we felt would help us recharge the batteries and like you say with a fresh approach.
