We Are Millionaires album released 21st July

The new Pete Fij / Terry Bickers album 'We Are Millionaires' is released on July 21st on Broadcast, to some great reviews.

"Minor key, acoustic introspection (Hawley, Lloyd Cole-ish) done so beautifully it’s as if they’re singing to one another in the dustlight of a pub back room"| MOJO

"Unfailingly lovely late night reflections stalk the same territory as the third VU album, Richard Hawley, The Lilac Time, and ballad mode JAMC" UNCUT

"A sweetly gloomy affair. When opener Let’s Get Lost Together hails the duo’s chemistry with a hangdog gleam, it’s an uplifting reminder that it really is never too late to get your band together. " Q

The album on CD / download can be ordered here (we benefit the most if you order direct, though you can also get it from your local record shop, or from other online stores)

Kickstarter thanks

We are delighted to announce that our Kickstarter campaign for the new album ended with a fantastic £10,772 pledged.

Thankyou to all who have helped.

"I want to say sincere thanks to all those who have contributed to our album fund. I am extremely grateful for your generosity. If you bought an album as part of your pledge I hope that you get many hours of enjoyment listening to it." - Terry
 
"Wow, wow, and triple wow. I was initially wary about doing a Kickstarter thing, but there's a genuine connection with those who support us which means such a lot. I feel slightly humbled by people's generosity and kind words. A lot of love went into this album & it means an awful lot to me - I hope it will to you too" - Pete

Pete Fij / Terry Bickers announce new album and Kickstarter Campaign

We're proud to announce the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of the new Pete Fij / Terry Bickers album 'We Are Millionaires', recorded at Church Road studios with 'Broken Heart Surgery' producer Julian Tardo.

Still drenched in melancholy, though this time with just a little pinch of hope, the album is due for release on 10th July 2017 on CD, vinyl & download.

To help fund it, there is a Kickstarter Campaign which aside the usual fare of CDs / vinyl / badges etc includes the opportunity to buy Terry Bickers' signed guitar strap, have a Skype chat with Pete, a Christmas card sent from the melancholy duo or have a song written and recorded by Pete & Terry all about you!

The Kickstarter campaign runs until Tuesday 16th May. Details can be found here.

Pete & Terry also now have a Twitter account as well as their Facebook Page

Bickers & Fij turn DJs

Pete & Terry take a break from recording their follow up album to 'Broken Heart Surgery' to DJ a night in Worthing at Coast on Saturday July 9th.

Mr Fij's club 'Never Stop' will feature a rare DJ set from Mr Bickers as the 2 play their favourite tracks from the 1980's, bookended by the very best of post-punk / new wave from the late 70's and the cream of early 90's indie/alternative.

You can join the Facebook event here or cut straight to the quick and buy tickets here from wegottickets.

"Remember, remember the 7th & 8th of November"

The Bickers & The Fij are off for a couple of dates in November as a kind of Bonfire Night weekend shindig.

The following day (Sunday 8th) they will be appearing at The Shiiine Weekender at Minehead where they will be launching a series of melancholic rockets alongside Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets, Wonderstuff, 808 State, The Wedding Present, Peter Hook, The Telescopes & Pat Nevin.

Don't forget to jump on board the Pete Fij / Terry Bickers Facebook page where you can find regular updates of the recording of album #2
