Hit Me Baby, One More Time?

The following announcement was sent out on the band's press list.

The Bluetones started recording their third album for Superior Quality Recordings on May 3rd. They are recording three of the eighteen songs that they’ve demoed, with Edwyn Collins producing, at the famed WestHeath Yard Studios.

The Bluetones recently played an impromptu gig - in the wilds of the Lake District. They were at the birthday of Paul "Chumpy" Knowles (their production manager) in Monroes Bar, Workington, Cumbria. The set included cover versions of Dennis Waterman’s theme from Minder "I Could Be So Good For You", Britney Spears’ "One More Time" and "Psychotic Reaction" by The Count Five. They also played three new Bluetones’ songs, aired at their sellout Astoria show "Blood Bubble", "It’s A Boy" and "Tiger Lilly" as well as old tones faves like "Are You Blue Or Are You Blind?". A top night was had by all.
