Flotation Toy Warning

Most of Flotation Toy Warning met for the first time whilst working in North London in a sprawling old grey brick building enveloped in trees - a former women’s refuge, then place for injured soldiers to convalesce during World War I.

Choosing a name from words written on beach balls and swimming rings, they agreed to live together in a warehouse with no windows in East London. Converted from an old clothes factory it was ideal for making as much noise as you wanted, whenever you wanted. Which they did, whilst constructing a sound by plugging things into other things that shouldn’t rightly be plugged into anything. Then singing through them until something interesting happened.

This lead to a series of performances in churches, boats, art galleries and someone’s living room, two EPs then an album called Bluffer’s Guide to the Flight Deck. They subsequently became distracted for a considerable amount of time by something interesting they found written on a wall.

Bluffer’s Guide to the Flight Deck is now being released on vinyl with a new long player to follow.
