BACK! (Again..)

How’s it going? Been a while, right?


As some of you may have already worked out if you were hanging out at the Hope and Anchor last month, CARETAKER LIVES AGAIN! Have a look at some wonderful photos of that gig from everyone’s favourite DIY scene photographer Julie Kane.


We’ve got one other gig booked for now, hope we can see you there – On Friday 7th February we shall be supporting our good friends OBE on their album launch gig at The Black Heart in Camden. Mayors of Miyazaki are opening, so make sure you get there early as those guys are flippin’ rad too! Full details of the gig can be found here. See you down the front!

Hiatus Status

Yeah, OK.. It’s a little late, but it just occurred to me that we hadn’t updated the website to reflect our inactivity (how paradoxical)…

I’m sure most of you are aware that we are currently on a bit of a break until some time next year, as Harry and his wife Becky are expecting a baby very soon! We’ll be back in 2013 though with some new songs, and the same drummer.

I’m keeping the facebook page active, letting you guys know about other stuff from our scene, and as soon as there’s any news on Caretaker, that’ll be the place to hear it first www.facebook.com/caretakerband


See you soon! x

“Frequently stunning”

We’ve been described as “one of the most underrated UK acts of the last decade” in Rock a Rolla magazine, and though no-one wants to be overrated, it’d be nice to be… you know… rated. Or something.

So here’s a call to arms for all you Caretaker faithful… you can help us get that little bit more recognition for our years of rock service (and hopefully recoup some of the thousands of pounds of debt we’re in) by sharing a link to our facebook page(http://www.facebook.com/Caretakerband), or a link to our new album (http://caretaker.bandcamp.com/).

You can write a quick review at Itunes or on Amazon or if you’re into your music forums, tell people! Drowned in Sound or Collective, whatever!
If you like what you’re hearing from us, please, please let people know about it!

We’ll be recording a session for Ian Camfield’s Xfm Rock Show this weekend, and we’ve got a few more gigs coming for May and June, so keep you eyes and ears peeled!

Lift Off

Hello friends,

This Friday we’ll be joined by many good friends, both on stage and off, as we celebrate the launch of our new album ‘Providence’ at The Unicorn in Camden. It promises to be a special occasion – not only are we joined on the bill by three excellent bands whom we hold in high regard, but we will also be playing ‘The Inexorable March‘ with Mike Woodman of Thumpermonkey Lives! for the first (and possibly last!) time.

We’ll have copies of the album for sale at this show, as well as some newly printed T-shirts. Entry is free – be sure to get there early to catch Ternary (featuring Wayne Pennell, the man behind the controls during the recording of ‘Providence’).

See you Friday.
