Happy Friday, you lot…here’s a bit of an update, as it’s been a few weeks since the last one.
One of my side-project bands, DA GROINS, released a 7” EP called ’100% Groin’ a couple of weeks ago. Totally scrappy garage punk rock ‘n’ roll in a similar style to BILLY CHILDISH, ARMITAGE SHANKS, THE MUMMIES etc. – people seem to like it and there aren’t many left at Kibou Towers. You can grab one here or here and watch a video for the song ‘The General Pub(l)ic’ here. Shout out to Matt Groin and Zero Groin!
There’s been plenty of radio play for both Da Groins and the forthcoming solo record too…a shout out to Rock Bottom, Down on the Street, Programa Transmission Lima, Emergency Radio Show, Just Some Punk Songs, and Diskobox amongst others, and the most recent solo single, Mañana, made the Ginger Quiff blog February singles roundup.
Finally it seems like the release date for the Carrion Repeating album is in sight…what is it? 6 weeks away now? If I’d had more coffee I’d work it out, but I’m still half asleep. If you haven’t pre-ordered it yet you can grab one (in either ‘standard’ or ‘special’ edition forms) here, here, or here.
VINYL LP TEST PRESSING!
If you’ve not subscribed to THIS website yet, let it be known that all subscribers will automatically be entered into a competition to win a super-limited vinyl test pressing of the Carrion Repeating album. I’d previously suggested that this was simply a draw, but actually it’s much more fun than that! Sometime in the week starting 25th April, everyone that’s subscribed and therefore I have their email, will receive a collage via email…all you have to do is identify all of the records in that collage…all correct entries will go into the draw for the test pressing. The draw will take place on Thursday 12th May. Only 10 of these test pressings exist in the world. So get on it!
WIN ONE-OFF ART!
Any pre-orders (i.e. before release day on 22nd April) of the LP made from this website, or www.kibourecords.bigcartel.com or www.kibourecords.bandcamp.com will be entered into a draw to win one of 5 mini paintings I’ve done. Slightly smaller than A5 size, acrylic on canvas. The 5 paintings are titled: Explosion, Set An Alarm And Live, Crow Johnson, Mind Door, and Escape Route Blocked.
OK, that’s it for now. Cheers!
