Fair Warning

What better way to kick this thing off than to mention a band who are very close to my heart.

Saltflat have just released their second full length album "Cold Morning Light" on Bonedry records.

Its been about 18 months in the making, and their first release since 2003's Asphalt Good and it doesn't dissapoint - this release is a huge step forward in terms of frontman Neal Cooks (ex-Wildflowers) songwriting. A sense of distance and longing echoes throughout the nine tracks, from the Neil Young apeing "Coming Home" to the barnstorming "MAP" .

Fans of Wilco, The Replacements, Ryan Adams and Richmond Fontaine should take note.

The band will be playing the following dates over the next couple of months:

August 27th
, September 19th & October 7th
Wolverhampton Little Civic

Tickets are available from the boxoffice on 01902 552121 or you can book online here

October 28th
Jug Of Ale, Birmingham
