UK! Throughout April & May we’ll be traversing across home shores, travelling south, west, east, middle, north, and, er, Wales! We’ll surely be flogging the EP and playing tunes from the new album plus some choice Mirth classics. Come and sea us this spring!
So far we’ve nearly mixed the album… nearly got the artwork finished… got the bilges emptied and ready to set sail on some silly adventures once again! See Gigs of Mirth for dates as they get confirmed… Meanwhile, if you’ve not seen this, where you been, man???
WINTER DEALS!! Help us buy premium crabmeat over Xmas…

The Esmerelda EP, our first release in nearly three years – is out on I’m Not From London records on Fri 30 October. Tis a prelude to our long awaited second album, which is to be expected early next year. A whet-the-whistle kind of affair indeed, and a gesture to say “cheers for waiting”! We’re mega chuffed and excited about this, and to celebrate we’re playing our first headline shows in ages:
Sat 10 Oct – DERBY The Hairy Dog
Fri 30 Oct – LONDON Brixton Hootananny
Sat 31 Oct – NOTTINGHAM Spanky Van Dyke’s
*EP copies available at all gigs!
ALSO: this here be a teaser for our Esmerelda video, out next week!
Gar! We’re freezing our respective arses off out here but the new album is taking shape like a colossal stinkbeast. It’s going to be called “Hark! The Headland Approacheth”. We’ve got a couple of shows lined up at the end of Jan down southwest way before we return to apply the final touches to the album and then return to rock the UK with some more shows in the spring. Hark!
There’s only four chances to get your Mirth injection at live shows before the year turns, as the new album takes the helm on the duties… the first of which is going to be a gargantuous affair of spooktacular groggery! Sea poster for details… (design by pictographik)

Blubber blubber blubber!
Yes it’s been an emotional one again, now as the chills of the brutal winter creep through the planks we reflect on our far flung forays- we’ve thoroughly enjoyed many festies this summer including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Beat Herder, Funny As Folk, Big Noise, Off The Tracks, and a recent one day tour of Devon where we righteously pilfered the county of all its Buckfast supply.
LAST FESTIVAL OF THE SUMMER!
Be sure to catch us sea dogs at Alchemy festival – we be commandeering the main stage at 5pm with a few cheeky tricks up our sleeves! Not only that, we’ll be joined by Hallouminati, Grace & The Magic Roots, Geofest crew, Earth Bound Misfits, Will Tun & the Wasters, Crinkle Cuts and many more acts of stupendous splendour!
Sorry for the lack of posts here, we’ve obviously been having far too much fun.
