Common Tongues



mike newsham


And for you Brightoners we have a lovely free headline show at the Bee’s Mouth this Sunday 20th of March at 10pm, having been moved from Velvet Jacks.


We’ll be playing with that fantastically talented Mike Newsham, Robbie Skitmore and the Berlin based Panter, who feature the very cool Jeanette who has helped us out a lot with shows in Berlin.  So see you there!

19/3/06 Boston Music Rooms w/ Hunter and the Bear



Very excited to be playing with these 4 handsome chaps above at the Boston Music Rooms at Tufnell Park this Saturday 19th of March.  You can get tickets here or on the door.  This is our first London show this year but if you miss this one you can catch us April 12th at The Finsbury and april 29th at Camden Proud.


A big thankyou to everyone who came to see us play at Marwoods last Saturday! It felt great to play a little more stripped back and the show was extremely useful in terms of helping us see what works and what doesn’ t with the acoustic set so a big thanks to all!  Our next full band show is at the Green Door Store March 10th with Superglu and our next acoustic show is March 20th at Velvet Jacks, hope to see you there!

Here is a video of our track Overturning from that Marwoods show filmed by the lovely Georgie d’Albiac Brewin.

Nov 2015 : European Tour


We spent 14 days on the road in Europe towards the end of last year, giving a taste of Common Tongues to Switzerland, France, Germany and Holland.

We had the most amazing time and really hope to be coming back to all the places we visited and more in November 2016.

We travelled with our good companion and musical whizzkid Michael Baker, and even got to play on a few of his tracks.

Thanks to everyone who came to our shows in Paris, Olten, Maastricht, Hamburg, Chemnitz, Cologne, Kiel, Berlin, Aachen, Bochum, and Miltons hottub love pad.

The Highlight for me would have been a tough one to call, but it’s between fitting 12 naked people in a hot tub and our impromptu gig at the Sacre Coeur, Paris.

Hope to see all you folks in November 2016.
