Hi Everyone,

This is just to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year from Suzerain.

Thanks to all of you who’ve supported us and danced and rocked yourselves silly at our gigs. You’ve been amazing!

2005 is going to be a busy year for us, we’re going into the studio in January to record some new songs, we’ve got some exciting new equipment and we’re being booked to play more London gigs which promise to be bigger, more impressive and more ambitious than any shows we’ve done before!

We’ve got some great photos of the band and you guys, they’ll be up on the site very soon!

Once again thanks for all your support, you make us what we are.

We love you.

The Fourth Book Of Suzerain...

Twas the night of Madam Jojos, and all through the Staines, the Suzerettes did gather, ready to get caned.

In the Blue Anchor they did meet, ready for a beer, then Natalie arrived, carrying lots of gear. BC did worry, for the coach had not arrived, if he f*cked up the transport, surely he would not survive. Nat made a phone call, the driver was late, time for another beer, and a half -hour wait. When it arrived, Brad and Nat were relieved, at the last moment disaster averted, they'd won a reprieve. Onto the coach, and BC gave a short talk,

"only with a flyer, off the bus you may walk".

Out came the Vodka, and the people gave a cheer, but BC was worried, he felt only fear, Yvonne got none, and she's Mike's old dear!

The toilet was locked, it was needed by Steve, Vicky did say "you should go before we leave!".

Into London they drew, the Suzerette horde, outside the venue they did queue, but none were bored. Soon appeared Mushnelle, then Morpheus too, "bloody hell" they said, "what a massive crew". Into the club and the drinking began, Stella Wine and Vodka, for all of the Clan.

First played Brain Hole, they were ok, not quite our style, maybe one day. Then came the hour, Suzerain would rock, nothing would stop them (other than the clock).

Rock well they did, and sounded great this day, all the birds were dancing, Suzerain earned their pay. An encore was played, Suzerain's first, everyone was rocking, like they'd rehearsed.

Soon the coach was leaving, but we didn't want to go, Chloe sold lots of CDs, stocks ran low. Back to Staines they went, and then on to home, everything was wicked, the bands profile had grown

Madame JoJo's Flyer

The Third Book of Suzerain...

"If she has got a cock, you've been warned"

With this stern and heartfelt admonition did Mike close the secret planning meeting of the forces of Suzerain.

Verily, long had all plots and schemes lead to this moment. The legions of electro-pop-indie-rockage would march on London, and lay waste to the venue, Madame Jojos, in an orgy of hedonistic destruction! To acheive this end, the band had recruited a brutal and licentious horde of followers, The Suzerettes, known for their superstition, ill discipline and lust for strong drink.

A mighty chariot (seating capacity:49) had been hired to bear the Suzerettes to their task, and lo, the keeping of this fearsome steed was given into the hands of BC and Nat. Verily, did BC warn the Suzerettes "Be thou outside the Blue Anchor by 7:30, or our vengeance will be terrible".

Many amongst the Suzerettes were discomfitted by rumors that the venue was an abode of Goths and Drag Queens, and mutiny was feared, but the threat of summary hanging restored discipline among the host. Now, all was hushed, the mood anticipation tinged with fear. What would await them at the end of their journey? who were these other bands? would it be safe to try and pull? what if that fit looking bird has got a cock? All of these questions, and more, would be answered with time....

The Second Book of Suzerain...

Twas the sixty-third anniversary of Pearl Harbor, and the Legions of Suzerain did converge upon the field of Ascot.

From the four corners of Surrey they came, man, woman and miscellanous. Verily, and the first band to play upon that dread eve was known only as Mononoke. The dark-muse of Jagz, titled 'Reena', did claim "Influenced by Pixies they are, and even PearlJam-esque they be!"

Next to playeth were Kingskin, noted for their fine selection of merchandising and wicked leopardskin flares.

Soon, the Suzerettes had drunk well, and demanded that their rock gods did appear and preach the gospel of rocking unto them. Verily, and thence appeared Tom, Mike, Rich , Lloyd and Jimmy. Lo, and playeth well did they, and the other bands were insulted and shamed.

Certainly, compared to the first time they had taken the stage, the sound was a lot better, and the set saw the debut of new tunes, one named "Time Bomb", the other this scribe cannot recall. A good time was had by all, and verily it was well funny to see SexyRexy and the goth nerds hanging around, trying to get in with the crew.

Suzerain Jagz Gig - A Big Thanks

Hey everyone!

Just want to say a big thanks to all you lovely people who came to see us play Jagz in Ascot last night, we had a wonderful night and I hope you all did too!

I want to give a special mention to all the lovely Suzerain ladies at the front of the stage for making it extra special and giving the gig that rock star edge - we love you - you rock!

Well, the band are now retreating to their volcano lair to prepare forthe momentous night of the Madame JoJo's gig (Wed 15th Dec 2004), it's gonna be huge! The coach from Staines leaves at 7:30pm from outside the Blue Anchor, it returns to Staines by 1:00am. Cheap drinks all night.

Once again - you guys are the best!

Rich + The Gang

P.S. Massive thanks to Sarina for putting on such a good night!

The First Book of Suzerain...


And twas upon the seventh day, of the twelth month of the year of our lord 2004, that the legions of Suzerain did march forth from Staines, and fall like wolves upon the tower of Jagz, in the dark heart of the realm known as Ascot, within the fearful Stockbroker belt....

Many and mighty were those numbered among the armies of Suzerain, and verily their countenance was a sea of black, red and pinstripes.

Lo, and Brad was heard to cry unto the host

"Yea, and ye shall buzz",

And verily did they sup upon the strong ales, and indeed many retired to powder their noses.

Thence did Tom appear on stage, and cry forth "You have a savage disease, it gets better...".

None were sure what he meant, but were sure it must be something deep...
