Buy Intoxicated from Fairshare Music and do your bit for charity

We've just started selling Intoxicated on Fairshare Music. What's really great about buying from this site is that they donate half of their profits to your chosen charity, so not only are you getting a spiffing copy of our album, you're also doing your bit to help other people too.

You can buy the album from them here and you can find out more about what they do here.

30th June 2010


In accordance with the Law of the Sod, Louisa has now fallen ill with the virus that Nel had last week. We *really* do not wish to cancel another gig in so short a space of time. Fortunately two angels have materialised called Llewelyn and Clare...

For one night only we will be presenting a revised line-up and an additional instrument!

Llew is Nel & Marcus' housemate and is a fabulous viola player and will be adding the layers which will be so sorely missed without Louisa's beautiful voice. Clare has only seen us live the once, at our last Leeds show, but has heeded our distress calls through a mutual friend and has bravely stepped into the breech and agreed to learn as much of the set as she can before Saturday. She deserves a medal of some kind. Or lots of wine.

Please come and lend us some much needed support this Saturday, we'll be missing the operatic strains of Louisa, but I can guarantee something original and unique! It's only £2 and it's a fabulous venue :D

* * * NO MORE PENDANTS LEFT * * * still taking album pre-orders however!


Firstly, if you have ordered an album from us, thank you, we've been literally overwhelmed by the interest. So much so that I did not quite plan for the response and now has no materials left from which to make pendants! Should you still want an album, then we're still taking pre-orders and there's a sampler up on: http://reverbantion.com/dyonisis

Thanks ever so much for your support,
Nel & Dyonisis

Nel played with hearts & hacksaws...

I've spent a happy few weeks disembowelling clocks and playing with the remains, it's felt reeeeally sacrilegious. I reconstructed them into heart-shaped pendants, in an attempt to embody the lyric "We are more than the sum of our many, splintered parts 'cause we amor".

Now it's time to give them away, should you like. I'm planning to give them out with every album pre-ordered between now and May 27th. They'll be posted out together on the 28th. It's to say thanks for buying the album & showing faith in the tunes off the back of only ever hearing them live, we really appreciate it (and fervently hope that you end up enjoying the recordings!)

I nearly removed a significant amount of finger making these!

Thanks to Owen Dickman for his tool advice, Jennifer Leti for her photography skills and my housemate for not freaking out when I filled the kitchen with broken clocks! - you guys seriously rock :)


The Info:

Intoxicated: Album released 29/05/2010
Price: £10
Preorder with handmade pendant: before 27/05/2010
Where: http://dyonisis.info/CD_intoxicated.htm


PS - If you don't want a pendant with the CD, just give me a shout in the notes when you order & I'll keep it back!

Nel :) x
