A huge thank you from Darius and everyone at Archive to all the people that bid for the keyboard.
The biggest thanks goes to the highest bidder (who wishes to remain anonymous) for the £1750.00 bid which is going to the Teenage Cancer Trust… truly wonderful!!
Darius is finally bidding farewell to his old battered composing keyboard. It seems that some of the lower end notes have given up from years of abuse. Some of the circuit boards have corroded. The upper octaves play ok. We have been told that they can be replaced/fixed if you have the know-how, money or patience. There are about 7-10 notes that are not playing.
The keyboard itself is fairly battered as you can see from the photos. Personalised by Darius with just some of the names of the tracks that he composed on this beast. We are simply looking for a loving home for this memorabilia.
We have also thrown in a few old tour laminates that Darius has signed.
So, how do you get your hands on this piece of art?
All we are asking is that you email us with your highest bid which you will be willing to pay directly to Teenage Cancer Trust. Bidding finishes at 1.00pm GMT on Friday 24th of May 2013. The highest bidder will be contacted via email and the winning donation has to be made before collecting the keyboard (proof will be required of the donation). All bids must be made in Pound Sterling so please be aware of exchange rates when bidding.
To the highest bidder the instant donation link can be found here:
The keyboard must be collected from Paris, Montmartre 75018 on either Saturday 25th or Sunday 26th of May 2013. All bids to be emailed with the subject ‘Keyboard’ to: email@example.com
Good luck and thanks from all at Archive x

… here comes the Summer.
What better way to wind up our latest tour than having ‘Stick Me In My Heart’ played on last Saturday’s Dermot O’Leary BBC Radio 2 show. To quote a certain advertising slogan: ‘Good Things Come To Those that Wait’.
Just announced, Archive to play En Lefko Festival, Athens on the 14th of June.
