umm.. hello!
so.. we're obviously not the best internet marketing machine on the web.... we've been doing plenty of interesting things in the year and ahalf since this was just updated, we promise. We've played a few gigs that we probably should have listed here in advance, and Ed has been working on a video synthesiser which doesn't make cool noises, but does make fun pictures... really need to post more about that later. Mostly because it makes some really crazy colours, but at the very least because it's starting to make appearances at our live shows...
Anyway - hello! nice to see you here.

Website back up!!
All this wordpress stuff we've been playing with is hard... though kinda fun. Still, it's going to be a little while till we get the new site built right, seeing as we'd rather be doing music than working out how to use wordpress themes as a site rather than just a blog, so the temp page has gone away for now. Watch our totally non web-designer experiments slowly evolve here

And look at photos of our new haircuts, and read about how our parents totally don't understand us, and how being grounded on school holidays sucks.

Beat magazine reviews Floppy Disc(o)

"There's no escape of the electro revival of the past couple of years. Every fucking producer claims to be electro this and electro that. Well, Bleepin' J Squawkins (Ed Leckie and Julian Higginson from Sydney) have captured the essence of electro both new and old with a dash of disco bump. You can leave your pretentious attitude and haircuts at the door, this album oozes all that is great from that rich bleep and squeak analogue era without the fucking wanker additive."

In The Mix reviews Bleepin J Squawkins live.

"...but the night really belonged to the Squawkins guys. They've been pushing their sound since time was time, and it so happens that right now that those who say what's what have decided that their sound is THE sound. And what a sound it is: snarly, disco-infused electro goodness, tight and meaty and melodic and camp. It deserves all the airplay it's getting, and these guys are not zeitgeist-hogging pretenders - I'll bet anything that the pencil thin ties they sported are authentic items."
