The Odds and Sods EP - The False Dots release retrospective EP to celebrate first gig outside London since 1985!

To celebrate The False Dots first gig outside of London  tonight at The Horn in St Albans, since 1985,when we played The Tiki club in Belgium, we are releasing a very special EP. We don't do the obvious things. We release  songs we don't play to coincide with gigs!

We have put together a collection of great tracks that we no longer perform, featuring some amazing guests.
  1. Spotlight, last played in 2011, written by Connie Abbe/Rog and Fil and featuring Connie on vocals. This is an alternative version which we think is pretty cool.

  2. Saturday, this version features Lee Thompson of Madness on sax and amazing poet, sometime Hawkwind contributor Allen Ashley on vocals. Lyrics by Rog and Allen Ashley (still played albeit a different version and arrangement)
