The Mispent: News

The Mispent Aboard The Good Ship, Kilburn - September 23, 2007

Ahoy There ! ...... And various other dubious marine vessel orientated exclamations ! But enough verbage.....

The Mispent will be boarding The Good Ship on Kilburn High Road in London, UK at approximately 9pm on Saturday 6 October. Do join us if you're in town and help us make merry as we sail metaphorically across the choppy waters of Indie Rock.

We'll be showcasing 2 new songs and it will be the last gig for awhile as recording beckons. See "Calender" for details...

Postcard From LA ! - July 4, 2007

After spending 2 weeks in the California sunshine we have established a second base in Hermosa Beach, LA ! A place so young at heart - middle aged professionals rollerblade topless along the seafront at the same time as pushing mom along in her wheelchair.....! Life, lest we forget is a great gift....! Details for US bookings on our "Contact" page.....

The Mispent In The Maelstrom ! - April 28, 2007

May you be in fine form - and if you're anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, may Spring have sprung for you. Should you be in London, may you be taking advantage of the wonderful weather in this part of the world.....

And may I also invite you to the second installment of The Mispent at STORM, Leicester Square.....this FRIDAY 4 MAY 8pm. Amoungst all the sunshine we need to kick up a metaphorical maelstrom for the music industry moguls attending.....(!)

If you can't attend, or even if you can - we offer you a FREE DOWNLOAD of the new radio edit of "Sand" (for 1 week only). Small remixes and mastering have really made this track. Go to:

Mispent Vices in Hammersmith ! - February 24, 2007

Happy New Year ! - January 7, 2007

Very best wishes for 2007 - may this be a fine year for you !

Can I take this opportunity to highlight the fact that we're on iTunes properly now; after the odd glitch or two ! We therefore really have to stop complete freebie listening at themispent.com. Please, if you can, show you support and acquire "Climbing Frames" once and for all... either in digital or physical form - by clicking on the "buy" icon to the left. The work may not be compromised by record label involvement, but then neither is it financed !

Keep on Rockin' in the free world !

Storm Gig This Wednesday... - December 11, 2006

The Bleak Midwinter is upon us; though not it seems in the form of
frosty winds make moan, or "earth stood hard as iron"! Our warming climate grants us tornadoes, and north Atlantic gales....

It is perhaps apt therefore that The Mispent are navigating this maelstrom by headlining STORM in the heart of Leicester Square this
Wednesday 13 December.....Stage time 10:15pm. Come down for a shot or two of festive lightning. It's a very glamorous 350 capacity venue between the Odeon cinema and Capital Radio....and a big showcase with labels and A&R in the offing - so we need your SUPPORT....
