Ricky P, Parksy and Jamie B are better known as Tall Ships. They're based in Falmouth but originate from Brighton and are currently off having way too much fun on the road with the mighty Tubelord.

They've been going since 2008 and are putting out their debut EP on the wonderful Big Scary Monsters label this coming Monday, 15 March.

The EP's lead track, Books, is our Tip of the Week. Here's Huw to give the track the proper introduction it deserves:

Like what you hear? I'd encourage you to head straight over to the band's blog, where there's a brilliant pictorial diary of the work that went into making 250 individually-numbered EP sleeves.

    I got to see Ricky P performing in Tall Ships live last night, at the leeds festival. Awesome, cool band! Their song, "words are pegs upon which we hang ideas" is a true masterpiece, you've got to see it live to experience the intellectual power woven into this song.

    Next concert is in Truro: https://events.myspace.com/Event/3329332/TALL-SHIPS. Highly recommended.

    They've turned the ideal of being a DJ on it's head...and they're so entrepeneurial, I've heard that jamie b is publishing some of his old love poems in a separate album with a book publishers and a new record label is in the mix. Nice work boys...
