No posts for a few weeks as I've been on holiday - plus label action is keeping me out (or in) trouble depending on how you look at it. Today we're going to go and master They Came From The Stars, I Saw Them first single for Thisisnotanexit Records with Kevin Metcalfe. It currently sounds amazing so once we've mastered it, it should sound Top 10. Its released November 13th on limited edition vinyl, cd and cassette but the band will be streaming it on their myspace real soon....and all being well should be all over the radio too...

We're having a launch party to celebrate the single release on Friday November 17th @ Barden's Boudoir (38-44 Stoke Newington Road, London) with a great line up of talent:

They Came From The Stars, I Saw Them
JD Twitch (Optimo)
Simon A. Carr (Thisisnotanexit)

Doors 2000 - 0200
Entry £5

Everyone welcome it should be a great night.

I saw The Fall on Friday at The Galtymore in Cricklewood and they ended their set with this beauty from their latest album, a 7 minute groove that sounds like The Fall covering LCD Soundsystem covering The Fall:

The Fall - Blindness

Over and out.

No posts for a while as I've been busy working on the first release for the label - I'll post the demo up in the next few days so that you can start to get excited about the properly mastered release in November - alongside that JD Twitch Optimo remix that is about to be done. They came from the stars, I saw them supported Magnetophone on Sunday night and played an amazing set - and Sculpture who supported fried my brain also....if you get the chance check him out.

Here's a cover of Pink Floyd's Vegetable Man which was on the b-side to The Jesus & Mary Chains first ever 7" - its rather rare this, and Jim Reid has also been playing this out at his solo gigs recently.

And continuing the cover versions theme here's The Cramps covering Count Fives - Psychotic Reaction from their 'Smell the female' live LP. The originals great, and this is great too. Gotta love The Cramps.

I also now have a soundcard and audio setup that works! So expect a few rare vinyl bits and pieces over the coming weeks, plus some exclusives from They came from the stars, I saw them...
