Fiat 500 by Loopy

Download the track here

Sister-track to the album Booster8. Recorded and mixed at Valley Studios in Winchester by Ben Startup.

The Loopy Popcast: The All Aboard the Fiat500 to Booster8 Episode

Download the Popcast here

Recordings and interviews from the Booster8 sessions featuring the official launch of Fiat500 as a sister track to the Booster8 album.
We hear about Ben's house arrest in Angola and climb aboard a song he created for his two boys. We bite into Harry Hill's cake and we think about the great first names we have in the band - excluding Tom's of course. Felix hates the editing process and we welcome Dom to the band. We hear from trumpeter James Price and saxophonist Ed Kershaw. We pay tribute to former drummer Giles by singing about his old car. We hope he likes the new album.
Thank you for listening.
You can download Fiat500 from any of our online spaces.

Back to school

Venue:  Winchcombe School

Present: Dom, Eg, Fea, Smash

Ran through the Booster8 album without stopping.

Amazing how much more focussed one is when one has spent the last year recording, editing and mixing the songs.  It's also a bit baffling as to why we still can't play them faultlessly after such intense year-long scrutiny.

Ran through some new songs too.  Eg unwittingly sat under a poster depicting a character called 'Edgar'.  Oh how we laughed (*straight face*).  And promised that we would take a picture of the moment.

We didn't.

In the pub afterwards we drank a toast to Tom.

Loopy Interview with Saxophonist Ed Kershaw

During the recording of the Booster8 album, saxophonist Ed Kershaw kindly took time out to lend us his talents. He uses the word topolino and he used to drive a garden shed. Check it.

There's more to life than laughter lines and loopy

Booster8. 9th of December.  Fiat500, a sister track to the new album, will be released via the podcast in the fortnight running up to then.  Fiat500 will also be available as a download. +Loopy TheBand
