I'M BEING GOOD just dug up a long lost track called I WANT TO BE A PART OF THE PROBLEM and threw it on their Bandcamp page. You can also now listen to (or even pay for, if you're feeling flush) SPARES OR REPAIRS and SCHINDLER'S LIST II in full online, as well as the other i'm being good albums. CHECK IT OUT.
SALE is now on until June 1st. Buy any three items from the shop for twenty of your eeengleeesh pounds. CDs, Vinyl albums and teeshirts each count as 1 item, 7" singles count as half an item, so you could have three CDs; or two albums and a teeshirt; or six singles; or one CD, one album and two singles; or four singles and an album, and so on.
I'm Being Good's SUB PLOT cd, though, is now officially sold out. You can still download the MP3 release at 192kbps here, or visit the band's bandcamp page if you want higher bitrates, wav or flac versions, or any other variation.
The first of I'm Being Good's new albums will be called MOUNTAIN LANGUAGE and be released on the wonderful GRINGO records later this year. Hot damn!
I'M BEING GOOD play at the Cowley Club, in Brighton on January 29th with BAD ORB and KING ALFRED, MAN OF LEISURE. Donations on the door.
I'M BEING GOOD have two new albums more or less ready to rumble. If your label is interested in potentially releasing one or both, get in touch.
New Andrew Clare solo album is up. Oddly it's a remix of another album that isn't up yet. Plenty of stuff lined up for this year, including at least TWO new i'm being good albums, which are more or less ready to rumble, assuming we can find someone to release them.
NEW BALD MERMAID VIRTUAL SINGLE is up now. Who'd a thunk it? more new stuff coming soon...
I'M BEING GOOD play in Bristol this Wednesday, May 19th. We played in Brighton last week too, but i forgot to tell you.
I'M BEING GOOD play at the Cowley Club, London Road, Brighton this friday (19th March). Set will contain some shiny new material. Album is taking shape nicely. Should be along by autumn, assuming we can find someone to release it.
New release. It's another Andrew Clare solo album. More to follow, i'm sitting on a whole bunch of stuff.
Plenty of stuff coming up, including a new andrew clare release in the next couple of weeks and some I'm Being Good shows lining up for the next few months, including...
March 19th at the Cowley Club in Brighton.
Some other shows tbc in reading, southampton and brighton between now and the summer time.
The new IBG album is approaching final stages of production, looks like it'll either end up being a double or two separate releases. We're also trying to finish the other album that we recorded just before Dave left the band, so we're currently sitting on three albums worth of new stuff, most of which will find its way out one way or another this year.
I'm Being Good also now have a site at http://imbeinggood.bandcamp.com where, you can buy downloads of all their albums in pretty much any format or sound quality you like, including Family Snaps, 8 of us R dead, Sub-Plot, and Poisonous Life.

Pine Forest will play at the spitz in london, 24th of august. supporting james green and soeza.
i'm being good have some gigs coming up this month, full list here
the pine forest album is up! gasp in awe at its creepy tendrils. Also coming soon, that DJ scotch egg virtual single and an i'm being good thing. Not the new album we just finished, a different new album. Probably in, like, early august by the time i get around to it. also just added a forum. i'll get around to redesigning this page to incorporate all of these elements properly some time.
new pine forest album will be up within the next week or so, i've got my head wrapped around finishing the i'm being good CD at the moment.. but SOON.
i just stumbled on a vinyl copy of the small things LP on ebay. aaahh yes, number 91, I remember that one.
just finished out little mini-tour with Worlds Dirtiest Sport and BUGS. Expect virtual 7" singles from both right here in the near future.
i'm being good are playing a couple of live shows, with BUGS and WORLDS DIRTIEST SPORT (kevin from trumans water's other band) dates so far are...
Friday, April 29th Brighton THE VOID starts 10pm ish FREE (donations welcome)
Saturday April 30th Northampton somewhere. not sure about the venue. Tom knows.
Sunday May 1st EMPTY - wanna put them on? email tom at imbeinggood dot com
Monday May 2nd Bristol Mr Wolf's Noodle Bar, 7.30pm £4 in. with Sodding Wolf's Head.
i added some no-obligation donation buttons just in case you can't live with yourselves. i know it's lame but i'm being good need a new crash cymbal, gotta keep the bandwidth topped up, buy esoteric microphones, expensive trainers, and other bling shit.
yet another re-issue!
I'm Being Good's seminal 2001 CD sub plot. Pretty much
sold out over at i'mbeinggood.com,
although there's a handful left if you're desperate to own a 'real' copy. Not
fussed? then download it for free right here.
more stuff to follow soon: virtual singles by dj scotch egg, world's dirtiest sport and others, a full-length pine forest release and more re-issues from the vaults.
another re-issue... i've got a lot of stuff backed up, this is the now out-of-print small things first LP. Basically the line-up of i'm being good circa 1995 (andrew clare, david ewan campbell, jason williams) noodling around at home. If you told a bunch of casper hausers who'd never heard jazz before to go read a book about it and then go off and make some it might sound something like this. aomewhere between CAN and sun city girls. oddly reminiscent of current finnish outfits like the anaksimandros.
here's a re-issue. it's the bald mermaid LP from 1996. still sounds as ugly as ever. If the idea of downloading a 105MB zip file fills you with dread you can download some snippet previews to help you commit. alternately you can still buy this one on vinyl from the old site.
okay, bought the server space... here's the first internet-only free MP3 release. It's by Pine Forest. More stuff to follow real soon. In the meantime if you're still hung up on owning hard copies you can still buy stuff from the old site.
