This gig is special because it’s bassman Joules’s last gig with us. Come down and give him a good sendoff!
We recorded brand new songs and definitive versions of some live favourites. The aim was to capture ‘Argonaut Forever’ at our most honest, energetic and exciting, with minimal overdubs and manipulation. We are so pleased with the result and feel that it captures the perfect Argonaut sound forever! Sticking to our guns – and possibly shooting ourselves in the foot – the album will not be available on the usual corporate platforms. We believe that music crafted independently with care, passion and integrity deserves to be made available in a way that helps keep these values intact.
‘Argonaut Forever’ will only be released as a hand finished CD limited to 100 numbered copies and only available through Keymailorder! Pre-orders are being taken now.
We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with our good friends keymailorder.com, who are now the exclusive supplier of Argonaut CDs. Keymailorder is a small but long-established firm run not by tax-dodgers, but by music lovers (and not least by ex-Argonaut bassman Paul Saiya). They have an excellent new website and their service is second to none. Argonaut and keymailorder are a perfect match. You can see all the Argonaut stuff that keymailorder have for sale here.
Our first full-band gig of the year is part of LOUD WOMEN‘s launch party for LOUD WOMEN Volume One, an astounding compilation CD of 21 bands and artists who’ve played LOUD WOMEN shows. We’re honoured to be on the CD too!
The launch party is on Saturday 18th March at New River Studios, 199 Eade Road, London N4 1DN. Things kick off at 2pm and go on until midnight. We’ve got new songs to play and we’re on at around 9pm (subject to change). Tickets are just £6 in advance, or £8 on the door, which is a complete bargain to see over a dozen of the best bands in London.
If you can’t make the party, you can pre-order the CD direct from LOUD WOMEN here.
We’ve decided that our download store is fiddly to use and costs us too much money to run for the service it gives. So, we’re closing it down when our current subscription runs out at the start of December.
That means, if you want to buy a copy of our Not Rich EP, then please do so now!
In addition to the title track, it also features the dreamy “Weekending”, a duet with special guest Lucy Joplin (video below).

Our next gig is Saturday 22nd October, part of Oxjam Islington. We’re playing The Kings, 59 Essex Rd, London N1 2SF, and we’re on at about 7pm. It’s a another full-on rock set, with Omz back on drums.
It’s a full day (and night!) of live entertainment as we come together to raise money for Oxfam. Over 100 bands across 10 venues to celebrate Oxjam’s 10th anniversary, all in Islington. All for a single ticket, which you can get here.
Our new EP Not Rich is out now. Watch the video, made by the ever-brilliant Dave Mayer.
We are releasing it in the spirit of the amazing We Shall Overcome 2016 week, and our chosen cause is Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC). The cost of the download is £2.00, and all proceeds will go to DPAC.
Here’s the EP track listing.
It’s being sold for us by our friends at Analogue Rock. It’s not available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon or anywhere else.
