Album out-takes

Here is a small selection of things we recorded, but didn't put on the last album. Some of them are just silly. One day there might be enough b-sides to make a full album, like Oasis did with The Masterplan, which strangely enough was better than anything they've put out since. Yesterday's scraps trumping today's supposed a-material. Still make money though, don't they? Sadly yes, some people have no imagination.

These recordings are either incomplete, don't do the song justice, are rushed or just rubbish. Make your own mind up, dig your own hole and choose your own adventure.

Sparkly Teeth

Cock Fest

Cloth Bird

Sleepy Song


Shouting Softly

Steeple 1-Up Lizard (OK this is from 2004 so it was never going to make the album but I think it's worth a listen)

Happy trails. What a bonus eh? All those fresh listens for your tiny little virgin ears. Many bands would charge for that --not the Diggers. Fair trade. You give us nothing and we give you music. Why not? If we didn't enjoy making it, we wouldn't make it. Keep your dirty little ears open, because we would like to make some more music for you at some point in the future. Also if you'd care to listen to other fatpie music, we've got a sparkling new Youtube channel, with the intention of uploading EVERYTHING! Subscribe if you want:

Grape Diggers Videojam #4

New jam here. It might be 20 minutes long. It's all sparkly clear and HD so I won't embed it, you need to follow the echo here.

Also don't let these updates push the most important update away, we have a new album called Grappling Head Songs and you WILL download it here.

Some silly improvs

Here is a video of Crust, Cal and Myself pissing about, having a bit of a jam and making up nonsense songs. Whilst this isn't isn't a very listenable session, with lyrics falling out like a messy piss, it does offer an insight into what it can be like when we are just feeling about for starting points. This is often how our proper songs start out.
