The Truth: Bag Of Cans are still very much a band which consists of George Baker (vocals / trumpet), George Bryce (guitar / vocals), Tom McGhie (guitar), Sam Watts (bass) and Joe Wilson (drums). They live in Norwich and are still living off the heady release fumes of last year's thunderously inventive 'We Are A Band' album.

Continuing the East Angularian theme Bag Of Cans are releasing a brrrrand new song called 'Colchester Leisure World', a propulsive paean to the aquatic delights of Essex's sexiest watering hole. It's taken from their forthcoming EP, and we have taken these quotes from the band.

"We slowed down the track eeeeever so slightly before adding the lyrics, to give it a swampy slightly woozy feel.
"We then reeeeallly slowed down Tom screaming at one point and shamelessly included that in the song.
"Colchester Leisure World is where Bryce cried when their mascot (a whale, or some unfortunate and underpaid teenager in a whale costume) gave him some marbles at an early birthday party.
"The blue flume is definitely the better one."

The release of the 'We Are A Band' opus saw our Norfolkian heroes - oft compared to the thumpingly cheery likes of Blur, The Kinks, Art Brut, Serious Drinking and, of course, Dingus Khan - in full stormtrooping form, playing Truck Fest and Y Not and selling out the local luscious Art Centre. No less significantly, Joe finally learned how to find serenity within himself; George Bryce failed to do some basic mental maths and was embarrassed; Tom learned the terrifying truth about how figs are pollinated; George Baker finally learned to ride a bike; and Sam listened to the heartbeat of a muntjac deer on a cold autumn morning.

Bag Of Cans play the following places here. Naturally they will not be appearing in Colchester.
