I’m sorry I haven’t kept my promise to share weekly track lists with you. I can’t really blame an old broken website. I should have done this ages ago – get something nice and simple together, and here it is.

There’s also a nicer new site on the way which will have info about lots of your favourite Chill shows, and that will be our new online home for Simplecity, but I didn’t want to wait for that to get finished. So here we are.

We’re playing acoustic tunes every Monday night from 10pm to midnight on Chill, and you can also hear some of the shows right here, any time. Thanks for sticking around and chilling with us!
