C4

Thursday Round-Up

Awaiting Doves arrival on stage. Picture by @michaelsjin

Doves returned to the live stage today for the filming of the new C4 music show Evo Music Rooms. They played the new single Andalucia (twice) as you would expect. They also did Black And White Town. Cheers to Jagger at doves board for the info. The show airs next Friday on C4 in the UK.

You may have noticed the new look doves.net went live today. I think you will agree it looks great. Don’t think the offish site has looked that good in years. If you haven’t already ordered the best of album, then head over to the bonus section of the site. Assuming you have one of the four studio albums on CD, just fire that into the CD drive let the site do its magic and you will get two quid off the Best Of.

If you have nowt going on Saturday afternoon, switch on BBC Radio 2 at 2pm to hear Doves play a couple tracks live for Dermot O’Leary.

I think that’s it for now, though I probably forgot something. More tomorrow no doubt!

NME & C4 Video

(creepy screen cap from House Of Mirrors Video)

On the NME doves microsite, you can now view a documentary about the recording process of Kingdom Of Rust. Some interesting shots, including what could be a sneak preview of the House Of Mirrors video. It would appear this would have been on the special edition DVD that was advertised early on, but was eventually withdrawn.

Watch the documentary

Channel 4 aired a 30 minute doves music special Thursday morning, Which included some live cuts. If you are in the UK you can watch the show via this link. I hope to be able to upload the video & audio clips from this at some point very soon.
