Greetings, hello and welcome!
Here at Human Condition we like to give our fans an insight into our adventures away from the stage as well as on it, so bookmark this page for all kinds of informational snippets, developments and occasional polls and quizzes as we love to hear from you! You can also follow our adventures on the road here
I'm a Celebrity! (5th November)
OK, not really but we are having a promo shoot with local legend Simon J. Newbury tomorrow. It's very exciting, especially as we are planning on using the photos for our new acoustic act!
BOXjam IV (28th October)
We're so excited to play this local charity event
, having worked behind the scenese previously. We're on the Electric Stage around 5pm and Adrian has a comfy spot out the back so we can relax, catch as many other musicians as we can and generally enjoy ourselves. Hopefully we can all raise loads for charidee!
Nailbiting! (21st October)
Well, it was a bit scary taking Adrian into town last night, lots of people outside the pub and very busy traffic so we had to find an alternative parking spot but we managed it in the end, the loading/unloading was definitely easier than the car and it was a good gig so all's well.
The Big Test (20th October)
Apologies for the hiatus – we've been getting acclimatised to life on the road. We took a break in the New Forest and ended up with one crisis after another! It was an interesting few weeks that's for sure. (You can find all the in depth gossip over on the blog). In gig related news Adrian's having his first official outing today as we play an out-of-town gig in Manchester at The Cheers Bar. We've a nearby campsite lined up, we've sussed out the parking and we're all set!
Meet Adrian (19th September)
The big day has finally arrived, no going back now, Adrian is all ours!
Farewell Gig (15th September 2012)
At our last gig (for a while, we will be back in the area in the future) the crowd at The Flying Lady in Crewe did us proud – we had an excellent evening with everyone getting into the party mood; singing and dancing along. Our Yazoo numbers were especially popular with both being requested for another play - in all we did three extra numbers and would have played even more but for the fact our vocalist was starting to lose her voice! We're back there in the new year and looking forward to it already. :)
The Big Reveal! (11th September 2012)
Drumroll please for our big announcement... We're hitting the road!
In a crazy moment of madness we've bought an RV and will be cramming our worldly goods into it and taking off around the country, and maybe even the continent. We intend to play any and everywhere that will have us, and we're working on an acoustic set so we can tackle some busking to help us on our way. You can follow all our goings on here
Zzzzzz..... (5th September 2012)
Apologies for the radio silence, we haven't really been snoozing; we've been hidden away in our secret underground lair, hard at work, plotting and planning some exciting future developments. We can't reveal all just yet but over the next week or so stay with us because we will be dropping hints along the way and we want you all to be as excited as we are. :)
Northwich Music Festival (26th August 2012)
Our third festival performance of the year - we're on at 2pm on Sunday. Fingers crossed for good weather!
Winners!!! (19th August 2012)
We are such lucky peeps! Absolute 80s Radio ran a competition for tickets to Rewind Festival at Henley-on-Thames and we only went and won! We had a fantastic day with so many classic 80s tunes, we especially loved Marc Almond and Wang Chung and there was something special being in a crowd of thousands all singing along to John Parr's 'Man in Motion'. We can feel an 80s filmfest coming on soon...

Gigs A-Go-Go (18th August 2012)
Double Trouble time for us this weekend as we have an afternoon slot at The Fox, Elworth followed by a full evening show at The Cosey, Haslington with master DJ Colin Cook in control of the decks - we're really looking forward to this one!
Top Night At The Tav (11th August 2012)
After an enjoyable afternoon playing with our good friends The BlueYellows for their EP launch we were asked back for a proper gig at The Market Tavern and what a gig it was - the weather was kind to us so we could play on the outdoor stage and a happy Hen Party sang and danced along with us!
Come On Feel The Noise! (4th August 2012)
We knew we shouldn't, but we just couldn't resist - a trip to Cookies Sound
in Stoke led to the purchase of a stonking new PA system. All hail the LD Maui28s! The line array brings a fantastic new sound to our gigs (as tested at our first out-of-town venue in Chorley) and allows much more freedom of stage set up as there are no feedback issues. Plus they look really, really cool.
Time to Party! (3rd August 2012)
A day out today as we play make believe at the filming of Gridiron UK - they needed extras for a party scene and the film is set in the 80s so we just had to volunteer. It was a surreal experience but really good fun. Hopefully our dancing was up to scratch and we'll make the final reel and not end up on the cutting room floor.
A Furry Friend... (1st August 2012)
We've picked up a new fan on our travels, and she's keen to lend her support behind the scenes as well as on the road. Here
she is helping maintain quality control on our latest recordings.
Fiesta! (28th July 2012)
Another festival for us this weekend - Congleton Music Festival & Family Funday
. Let's hope it's not welly weather!
Have Your Say! Part 2 (22 July 2012)
The votes have been counted and it was so tight at the top that we've decided to add the top 3 to the set. Das Modell, Vienna, and Love Action will be making an appearance over our next few gigs, so be sure to come to them all so you don't miss your favourite!
Have Your Say! (16th July 2012)
We're always on the lookout (or should that be hearout?) for new material to add to our setlist so pose this question for you all to let us know what you think
. Should it be Kraftwerk or a spot of Human League. We like them all so there's only one way to find out... FIGHT!
It's For Charidee! (13th July 2012)
A newly formed local autism charity 'Rainbow Puzzles' hosted their first fundraiser
and we were pleased to join the lineup. A hectic night (our Mr Synth stepped in at the eleventh hour as sound engineer for all the bands) but good fun, and for a worthwhile cause.
With A Little Help From Our Friends (7th July 2012)
We were honoured to be asked by our fellow musicians The BlueYellows
to play at the launch of their debut EP 'All These Things Right Now
'. It was a fantastic day, they played the most fantastic set and we did our best to round off the proceedings with gusto. It was lots of fun to play to a home crowd. :)
Over The Airwaves (16th June 2012)
Back on the radio again - this time on Redshift Radio's Late Selector
. We performed live in the studio (it was quite something to squeeze all the synths and associated gubbins in there) and really enjoyed getting some lovely comments via the online community following that show.
Crewe Live (2nd June 2012)
Our very first festival! (And only our second gig). We took to the stage at The Waldron Pub, headlining on the Saturday night of this four day music extravaganza
. The pub was packed and we really enjoyed the atmosphere - and we even had some dancing going on. Win!
Stage Fright (25th May 2012)
We must confess to feeling the nerves a little before our debut gig at The Jolly Tar, Wardle. We rehearsed mercilessly to make sure we were at our best for our first ever gig and, a couple of minor hiccups aside it went really well - particularly as our singer had never performed on stage before, ever!
Grand Radio Debut (4th May 2012)
We're heeeeeerrrre! After being a longterm side project to our other endeavours Human Condition is finally born and we made our public debut on community radio station This Is The Cat and their purrfectly apt Friday night show - Purrfect 80s! The folks there were lovely and we had a cracking evening chatting with Steph and Rach, enjoyed some quality tunes of the era and had the first play of our tracks to, hopefully, an appreciative audience!
