Here are details of our next gig. Another self financed night out at the Fighting Cocks. Please come and support the night, if you can. Its only by getting in a decent crowd that we can continue to offer great bands and ridiculoulsy low entrance fees. NICE ONE

HAPPY NEW YEAR
HERES THE PAST TENSE AT "ALBERTS HOME FOR THE DISCERNING MODERNIST"
IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU HEAR WHY NOT OFFER US A GIG IN 2016 !
THANKS - THE PAST TENSE
- 2015 - ONE OF THOSE YEARS
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL FROM THE PAST TENSE !
Well its been one of those years
1 ) We released "HEADS HELD HIGH" to great critical acclaim. Thanks to everyone who reviewed it and purchased it.
2) We played some great gigs. Thanks to everyone who made the effort to put the Past Tense on in 2015 and to everyone who has been to one of our gigs in 2015 and enjoyed great nights of live music with us.
3) Our fourth member "Buzz" has really got into his stride. We now have full on Hammond Keyboards and lead guitar to compliment our sound. Everyone has said how much fuller our live sound is now.
4) Our first night at the fighting cocks in Kingston was a great success. See our flyer below for the next one in February with THE LEN PRICE 3 !!
A special thanks goes out to Albert Cummings. His "home for the discerning modernist" in PUTNEY put us on for 3 gigs in 2015 and he continues to be a great supporter of the band and the "MOD" scene in general.
Hope to see you all in 2016

Big thanks to Steven Tagg-Randall for the recording and Steve Worrall for putting on the show and for the front and back cover pictures.
Its been nearly three years but the new PAST TENSE CD will be out very shortly !!. Titled "HEADS HELD HIGH" it features 13 tracks of our usual brand of mixed up styles of music. From the Motown sounding "No apologies", the Style council..ish "Putney Sunrise" to the New Wave riffs of The Only Ones etc, there will be something for everyone. Final mix to be completed this week. The cover design is coming along as well so with a fair wind behind us we should be ready to go to the presses in the next few weeks and look to get it released sometime in April.

- NEXT RELEASE AND MORE GIGS ON THE HORIZON
Hope all is well with you all out there.
We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who put gigs on for us in the last month or so. We had a great time. We'd like to thank Derek D'Souza for being at more than his fair share of these gigs, taking wonderful photos (if photos of us can ever be classed as wonderful) and for really supporting the band. We'd like to thank YOU for being at these gigs, for making Buzz (our new lead guitar man) so welcome and for the great thumbs up we've been given for becoming a four piece outfit. We've added a few more gigs to the list for December and onwards so put the dates in your diary and join us for a beer or three.
Our next release is the fabulously quirky "POSTCARDS FROM THE DEEP" flexi disc boxset. We got our own disc in this set and its going to be fabulous. A few reveiws have classed it as the "NUGGETS" for 2014. Goldmine USA have reviewed it and the journey taken to produce it. Its well worth a read.
You can buy it here.www.fruitsdemerrecords.com/postcards.html. We will get some copies of our disc only which will be available from December onwards. Buy the boxset its GREAT !!
Finally our latest CD offering is well on the way to being finished. The plan is to have everything ready for pressing by christmas, with hopefully an early March release date. Watch this space.
Catch up with you all soon
