Great gig last night at The Victoria. Thanks to all those that hung around late to watch us headline. Gigging will take a back seat for a while now as we prepare to go into the studio to record a new ep. Copies of the current ep are still available from the band, just message for details. For now though it’s playing the same four songs over and over to a metronome to get them tighter than a gymnasts leotard before going in the studio next month.

What a great way to start the last bank holiday weekend this year. We’re playing at The Victoria in Birmingham for the first time, support by three awesome bands we haven’t played with before. Should be a good one.

It might have appeared to have gone quiet on the OTG front over the last few weeks, but fear not my hard rockin amigos, we have been working on new material again.

At the last gig we unveiled a new track “ninth plague” and with any luck we should have a new one written up and fine tuned ready for gigging soon. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates coming soon.

Thats right folks this time tomorrow the first three bands of the night will have just finished playing and we’ll be preparing to go on stage. Doors open at 8pm first band on just after that. It promises to be a good night and one not to be missed.

In the mean time there have been other last minute preparations, programming of pedals, tweaking the setlist, reskinning and tuning of toms.

See you tomorrow folks.

Well it’s a week away now folks. This time next week we will be on our way to sound check at The Flapper for our headline gig. We’ll be trying out new material too, new song “The Ninth Plague” will be unveiled.

There’s still time to buy tickets, just get in touch with us and we can sort out tickets. Alternatively you can pay on the door.

See you next week folks and don’t forget “Here comes the plague of darkness”

With less than a month until are next gig, we figured we’d better work out what we were going to play. So last night was the first run through of the potential set list for the gig at The Flapper on 12th June. Good news folks, and this is just are personal opinion, it sounds great. Some of the classic OTG songs a few newer ones you might not of heard and a brand new one you definitely will not have heard.

We’ve now got the tickets so just message us and we can get you some. It a whole pound cheaper than on the door at only a fiver. That might not be a pint in this day in age, but it all helps, you could spoil yourself get that bag of cheese and onion crisps.

See you at The Flapper.

the bands have been announced for the forthcoming gig on 12th June at the flapper. Next gig not too far away now. We’re in the studio tonight working on new material which we will be playing for the first time at the gig. Not one to be missed. Should be a good one.

Heaven & Earth Poster

Well in case you weren’t aware we had a massive gig on Tuesday. We supported Electric 6. This is the second time in two years we have done.

Last  year was awesome, this year was mega awesome. This time round we had more notice that we were support and managed to sell over 100 tickets so we played to a virtually sold out crowd. The buzz you get from playing to such a great crowd is indescribable. Needless to say two days after the gig and were still buzzing.

All in all it’s been an amazing year having played some great gigs at some great venues. The Shed in Leicester, The Flapper with Mitchel Emms (The Voice 2013), Headlining Emma Scott Presents gig at the Academy 3, and of course supporting Electric 6 at Academy 2.

More of the same next year hopefully.

Don’t worry folks. no one’s leaving the band. But we have got rid of the old website and updated it with a brand spanking new one. You can check it out at onlythegood.co.uk

In other news the gig at The Rainbow has been cancelled. But on the bright side we’ve managed to get slots at Actress & Bishop on 27th July, Baseline in Dudley on 30th August and The Shed in Leicester on September 28th. It’s like a mini tour of the Midlands. Hopefully by then we should have some new material to unveil. Watch this space.
