Thanks to François Zappa for this excellent interview
Great interview with Rodney in Electrospank magazine this month – go check it out!
The newly remastered version of our classic first album Grenade is out now on all of the usual streaming services. Go have a listen – we think Rodney did a great job producing this, it sounds amazing!
Lots of people have been asking for CX merchandise… and now we have it!
Our brand new merchandise store is now open, with lots of things to choose from – not just shirts, but mugs, mouse pads, phone cases, and everything else your little black heart craves…
Note that all of the shirts in our online store are organic cotton – this makes them a little bit more expensive than normal, but is much better for our environment. We think it’s worth it.
If you want to support our work, this is a great way to do it. Feel free to stream our music for free, but please buy our merch! 😎

Oh, and would be great if someone could make a review…
Don’t forget we’re playing some shows in the next weeks:
- April 18: Bath, UK
- May 1: Bochum, Germany
- May 2: Berlin, Germany
- May 3: Hamburg, Germany
We’ll be bringing lots of merchandise, like T-shirts and some rare CDs to each show, so bring some extra cash along! We always like to hang out at the merchandising booth and sign autographs and chat after the show, so if you have something you’d like autographed, do bring it along.
We’re also looking for someone who would be interested in helping us sell merchandising at the German shows. If you’d like to help out, and get to spend time backstage with us (and maybe even get a free T-shirt!), please send us a mail!
From the Manchester Evening News:
GUITAR-playing solicitor Andy Booth has been plucked by the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters and BBC Radio Two to advise up-and-coming artists on legal issues.
Andy, a partner at Manchester firm Turner Parkinson and guitarist with the 1980s band The Cassandra Complex, who recently re-formed to tour Germany and Brazil, is advising hopefuls in a nationwide search for unsigned talented songwriters.
He is providing advice on publishing and recording contracts to finalists in the BBC Radio Two New Songwriters’ Academy.
Andy, whose clients include Ian Brown and The Coral, said: “This academy is attempting not only to uncover new talent but also to advise up-and-coming musicians on how to avoid the pitfalls inherent in the music industry.
“I’m thrilled to have been selected and to be playing a part in discovering the level of talent that is out there.”
