TOP OF THE ALCOPOPS PARTY IN LONDON - and you're all invited

When life gives you lemons, reimagine Top of the Pos, right?

So we're putting on a kicking party with our friends at The Dome/ Boston Music (17th May) and we'd love to invite you all. It's a big Friday night out essentially, but we're trying to pack a FESTIVAL full of fun into it by opening up both venues, and making this one great.

We've signed Raketkanon - and the Belgian heroes are releasing Ricky!

Good news! Raketkanon are one of the greatest live bands in the world. And on this new record they've just announced with us (#RKTKN3) they're perhaps even better... The Quietus said 'the phonetically and evocatively titled Raketkanon are the captains of a noise that lurches like the peaks and troughs of an angry North Sea' and by golly they're right. All lyrics are delivered in their own language so you can take what you want from them - and the songs *CRUSH*. Check out the first cut from the record, Ricky, and you can even pre-order the limited edition blue in clear vinyl. OUCH.

Cheerbleederz release 'Staying Up Late'

Cheerbleederz are back, and the new video is literally next LEVEL! You can tell this track is ace, because Dexter at Spotify has splashed it liberally all over playlists and Clash said some SUPER nice things (as did many other people, but y'know - we can't share everything)..."Kicking off 2019 with a bang, the trio have sculpted a video for EP standing out 'Staying Up Late' and it's a superb, cute-as-hell intro to their world. The song itself is all nagging guitar lines, urgent vocals, and a snappy chorus, while the video emphasises that longing for communication and the simple pleasures music can bring." Well, quite...
