Better late than never

Better than football




Farrah took to the stage last night for the first electric show in four months! The band stormed through old favourites as well as a smattering of new songs. Michelle rocked big style and Jez experimented with some (eastern influenced) microtonal tunings.

A Big happy birthday to Debs (how’s the hangover?) and to all you lovely people who missed the last tube home to watch the band. You can catch Farrah again at the Metro Club, Oxford St on November 12th.

Time to Rock

Loud and proud at the former “Break For The Border”. Michelle’s debut electric gig.

Say cheese

We’ve been in the studio rehearsing today and we’ve also had some photos of the new line-up. We were hoping to convince the photographer to shoot them all in the local Cafe but she decided we should all stand in the rain instead. Oh the sacrifices we make for rock and roll.

We’ll be putting them up on the site soon

Busy bees

Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. That’s what we’ve been up to. It’s been great to make a big racket again. Michelle’s nimble fingers have been flying around the fretboard, Andy has been keyboard programming with a nerd like intensity and Mike has been eating everything in sight. I ‘ve been singing/whining (occasionally in tune). Can’t wait to unleash the new line up at the Radius club….

Acoustic debut

Last night saw the debut of Farrah’s enormously talented (but not enormous) bass player Michelle. The band played an acoustic set at a packed gig in Camden Town. The set included material from their debut album Moustache, as well as tunes from the new album. Highlights of the set were the inclusion of new songs; ‘He Gives An Inch’ and ‘This Is My Life’.

A big thank you to all af you who came down, some from as far as Derby! (You know who you are).

You can next see the band playing fully electric at the Radius club, London (check gigs page for details)

Michelle’s Debut Gig

It’s a girl!…….It’s a girl


Mike and Welsh friends







What a week it has been.

Firstly, all at Farrah would like to congratulate Arsey Mike and his lovely wife Nicola, on the birth of Poppy. She popped into the world at a bouncing 9 pounds 1 ounce. The whole family are over the moon and doing well. Nothing new for Nicola having to look after a helpless drooling child!

On the very same day as Poppy arrived, so did

Farrah’s new bassist Michelle, who auditioned

over the telephone and was poached from

marvellous Sydney based power-popsters Montana.

Farrah persuaded her to trade antipodean sunshine for tube strikes and drizzle!

Rehearsals have started in earnest for

Michelle’s debut at the Barfly acoustic

club (see gigs page for details)
