One English Pound meet the Twitterati!

Urban dictionary - 
The Twitter.com elite, whose feeds attract thousands of followers and whose 140-character spews capture the attention of the press who doggedly monitor them.

Having recently learnt a new word, we set about making an impact on the so-called Twitterati by messaginghigh-profile celebrities telling them the reason they should listen to One English Pound. 

A flurry of celeb interest in the band was bound to follow; comments, interviews, magazine appearances, maybe a slot on This Morning. 

As The Toytown Express went to print, we still await our first reply, but here's a selection of our work. We'll continue until we succeed, so join Twitter.com/oneenglishpound to keep track of who we've hassled…

Odds and Ends

Just a quick note to say thanks to every one who stayed out late to watch us last Saturday night for the Mad Ferret's 4th birthday bash. And a big thanks to the other bands who made it a great night.

We've put up a video from the night and there's a new acoustic recording of Cinderella Walls, which we've had in the set for a few months.

Both are up on our Facebook page here... http://www.facebook.com/pages/One-English-Pound/281853884929?ref=ts

To add to this, we've conirmed a few more gigs, we're playing Leeds Milo on Friday September 10th, September 24th at Leeds The Well and September 30th at Chorley's Imperial pub.

There's a few more on the way as well, and don't forget that we've got Sept 18 at the Mad Ferret pub supporting the Brute Chorus.
