"I'm not sure what we've been waiting for but it's fair to say we've waited long enough before announcing the demise of the Parade that will be forever Gillroyd. Thanks for all you support, encouragement, turning up to gigs and comment, positive and constructive. Kev's still laying down the music with The High Hollers,... John's busy running the Internet, I'm playing Scrabble mostly."
As a fare-thee-well here's a sneak preview of our unlikely-to-see-the-light-of-day EP: Kazoo Man
The Gillroyd Parade spent yesterday recording in a studio for the first time which was interesting, frustrating, challenging, rewarding, fun, educational, monotonous and productive. There are some pictures here and probably more to follow.
Good news. We have just confirmed we’ll be playing on Sunday 18th April downstairs at Verve (Merrion Street, Leeds) which is a smashing little venue. Come on down for a springtime ’Parade fix. Facebook event page.
UPDATE: Rather lovely evening. See the gig page for setlist.
More short notice giggery. We're back at The Fenton this coming Thursday (4th March 2010) at Something in the Loft with Uncle Johnny, X-Ray Cats and Buen Chico. Should be a hoot. This time we'll be playing at the more civilised time of 8ish.

Come all ye faithful, faithless and faith-inbetweeners to a night of Gillroyd Parade hosted music. Starring The Gillroyd Parade (natch) and also featuring the irrepressible and irresistible John Yates plus other guests to be announced later. I may even dig out that Guthrie song about children being crushed under a christmas tree (nah, not really).
I’ve done gone and shifted all the old website content over to this swanky new system. Seems to be okay. Might be a few broken links or whatnot for a while till I fix em but the old site is still there. Stay tuned for edifying ’parade related info and updates!
Hello. Here again in case you missed ‘em when we wallpapered them all over facebook are the two music videos made for us without us even asking. They are set to some rehersal recordings we made in August at Rob’s place.
