‘Dead pop stars’ cover photography to be shown at NEC Birmingham focus event

Flies on you “Dead pop stars” single cover will be shown at the Focus event at the NEC Birmingham in March. Alice Watkins took the photo as part of a UK wide photography competition. The cover image was one of 25 chosen from over 600 images entered into the “Beauty & the beast” photographic competition run by Harman.

FOY shop should be available soon..

Andy has been getting all the T-shirt designs in place and we are now sorting out the printing. Hopefully we should be able to get them from around the £6 to £10 mark, due to the fact we will be screen printing them ourselves.

Just keep on checking the online shop ( Tab at the top ) and we will let you know when we have the prices up.


FOY reach 24 in Dandelion radio’s festive 50 ( formerly John Peel’s )

We just received the frankly stunning news that one of our tracks, “Shipmanesque”, came in at No. 24 in Dandelion Radio’s Festive 50. I wouldn’t believe it, if I hadn’t seen the evidence with my own eyes.

“The Festive Fifty is an annual chart featuring the previous year’s best tracks, as voted for by listeners. Legendary BBC broadcaster John Peel presented the first ever Festive Fifty on Radio 1 back in 1976, and continued to do so until his death in 2004. Radio 1′s One Music show hosted the poll in 2005, before Peel’s former production team asked Dandelion Radio to become the new home of the official Festive Fifty from 2006 onwards.” And we’re in it. At No. 24. Crikey!

Mr Grebo Gray

Grebo Gray is the artist responsible for the wonderful image on our debut LP “nothing to write home about“ here are some more images and links to his work

Grebo lets us take what we want from the images he puts in front of us and is a man of few words but he did tell me recently “I am not a photographer…I am a picture maker who just happens to use a camera ”

Foy are big fans, who isn’t?
