I never quite know whether the Hermit Crabs are still going or not, but having been charmed by a couple of secretly ace eps and an admirable stab at a forgotten classic-style album, it seems they are.
Or they are in the form of a collaboration (maaaannn) with The Very Most. This new lash-up is called Baffin Island (named after the exact midpoint between The Hermit Crabs' home in Glasgowand The Very Most's home in Boise, Idaho.) Cute.
Anyway, Baffin Island have recorded a song for Eardrums Pop's 'Between Two Waves', called 'You Make Two Weeks Two Days'. Aww.
Sure, it might be a dead ringer for a Camera Obscura song from a couple of years ago, but there's not much wrong with that.
You can listen or download 'YMTWTD' here.
And if anyone has any news on the whereabouts and movements of The Hermit Crabs and any new stuff under their own steam, then I'd be delighted to the point of tears to find out.
