Hello all, we hope that you are enjoying the festive period, it can only be a good thing when you get time off work :) All of us in the band have day jobs and it's great to eventually get time to recharge. We are now in the beginnings of writing what will be our fifth album and so far the material is already sounding very very good - new material is always a good rush for any band/writer.

2011 will see us playing quite a few festivals, which is something that we have wanted to do for quite a while. Please look out for the dates of these which will be announced via our main site as well as Facebook and MySpace. These dates will also include some appearances with Steve Rothery from Marillion as well as involvement with the British Guitar Academy.

From all the band, we wish you all a very happy Christmas and all the best for the new year.

Dave, Shaun, Charlotte, Stu and Andy

Well hopefully by now, most of you will have heard 'Return of The Gold' on the front cover CD of Classic Rock presents Prog! It's been a fantastic feature for the band and has hopefully brought the band to a lot more people.

Us So & So's are now busy writing again for what will be album number 5....blimey!!!! Mr. So & So has had a strange existence so far and there have been real high points for us during that time but we really do think that Sugarstealer was our best work so far and as such we have set the bar REALLY high for the next album and to be honest we feel very much up to the task :)

We are in the process of arranging a few festivals for next year and so far it's looking like you will see even more of us.

Hi everyone,

Mr So & So are pleased to announce our first HEADLINE(!) London show which will take place at the Venue 2, the 229 Club, Great Portland Street London on 22/10/10. Doors open at 7.30pm and there will be a full support before we hit the stage. Our onstage time is TBC but 9.30pm-ish looks likely at the moment. The venue is fairly small, holding around 250 but has excellent sound and lighting equipment so it will be a chance to hear tracks from Sugarstealer and the back catalogue 'up close'.

Tickets are a measly £6, which is very cheap for an act of our quality, with all our own teeth and (most) of our own hair!!

If you fancy coming along, here is the TicketLine link for online purchase or you can PM us with contact details to directly purchase tickets from the band.

Please come alomg and say hello!

PS Just had some exciting news..something about 'Mr So & So', 'O2', and 'Dome' this space!

100 Club and Bi-Polar Video

Thanks to everyone who turned up for the gig on a very hot and sticky Friday night. We enjoyed playing and we have been asked back soon as well, so if you missed us you can get to see us again. It's a great venue run by really nice people.

Next up for the band is the premier of the Bi-Polar video. We have been working with a very talented gentleman by the name of Will Cotton and he and his team have put together a video for Bi-polar. It's taken a while but like all things So & So, nothing worth doing is done quickly :) We'll post the video up onto You-tube as soon as we get chance to.

One last thing, we are considering videoing the Citadel gig. If we do we'll let you know in advance and we'd LOVE it if you could all make it to this one. Imagine that, after all this time....a Mr. So & So DVD!?!?!?!

Take care

...On the road again....

We have been blessed with what we now consider our perfect line up, Andy has settled in superbly well and we are now "gig ready" as it were.

You may have noticed on Facebook that we have gigs coming up at at the 100 Club in London on Friday 20th August and also the Citadel in St. Helens on Friday 29th October. These are the first of hopefully a lot more gigs. We'll keep you posted.

Take care

First gig of 2010 announced

Now that we have settled into our new line up (sounds rather splendid too), we are now in the process of booking some gigs, the first of which is on Friday 29th October at The Citadel in St. Helens. Tickets will be available from The Citadel box office as of 1st May. This is a great live venue and also the birthplace of the band. We also hope to have a couple of cool supports with us too. Hope to see you there.

May update

We now have a very posh now looking web site and we are about to adorn this with new pictures of the band that are the first that we have had done with Andy. We had a giggle during the photo-shoot and did some outside late evening, resulting in most, if not all, of us being bitten outside a very scary building that could easily have been featured in "Saw". We have been taking a short break as Stu has recently become a father for the first time, though we start up rehearsals again in a couple of weeks. The new So & So set will contain quite a few songs that we haven't played live for quite a while now and hopefully we have improved them a little (we think we have).

We need your help to get more traffic to the So & So forums, so if you haven't already done it, please visit the forum and sign up, say hello. Shaun is currently explaining the background to the lyrics of our song and I'm being slightly less helpful in discussing the values of guitar pornography.

The video that we shot for Bi-Polar a few months back will hopefully be finished soon. it's taken a while as there has been a huge amount of post work for Will Cotton and his team who filmed it. They hope to have this done really soon.

Finally, I will be releasing my d├ębut solo album some time in Autumn. It's currently about halfway through and will be a mix of instrumentals and songs featuring guest vocalists. At some point my own web site will go live too, I'll keep you all posted.

See you soon
