And it seemed to be pretty slap bang RAD, so I thought I’d slap it on the blog too. That’s lazy jourmalism right, but honest this baby has got so many free tracks, awesome things and general fun in it… It seemed silly not to! I guess the key things to take from it are that you must come and see us at SWN label market if you happen by… That we have lots of bloody awesome bands… You are great… AND WE NOW RETAIL SWEATERS INSPIRED BY BLOODY JURASSIC PARK*
do buy one…
1.) Jurassic Park Sweater. Clever Alcopop!
2.) Bear Cavalry 8 track EP for sale, with poster
3.) Brand (ish) new signing… Oh No! Yoko
4.) Screaming Maldini on XFM
5.) New Johnny Foreigner track. Naughty Johnny Foreigner
1.) Inspired by the best moment of the 90′s/scene of film history – may we introduce our new sweaters. Simple, Sexy, Packed with full in your face Velociraptor, there’s not a awful lot to say about these badboys, other than buying this will make you instantly more popular…. Do so here. I can’t honestly tell you how much we at Alcopop! love Jurassic Park. Hope you love Jurassic Park too – now slap it on your chest Perfect for winter too. It’s getting cold out there, and these are lovely, good quality warm Gildan. Don’t freeze out there…! (picture below)
2.) 8 Tracks?! On an EP for a fiver… Surely not? Well, sort of. This cracking EP from fizzy Gosport heroes Bear Cavalry is a lush, well groomed 4 track of an EP on CD, but also contains a download card with 4 extra acoustic tracks included for you. It also comes with super nice lyric poster, and should you care to try before you buy as t’were, check out this free split they released with Crushing Blows. Free download? Oh sure x
3.) And did we tell you we’d signed a new band. Ushering in the first of our moose-hugging bretheren from Canada, please welcome the MIGHTY Oh No Yoko! An absolute lesson in what makes super fun, stripped back, laid out math pop. A debut 7″ is following later this month with a 35 date tour (London on the 9th November) – but in the meantime, check this track out. It’s insanely good!
4.) Screaming Maldini have been busy too, and their recent whacked out awesome feel-good hit of the post summer, Summer, Somewhere has been seeing lots of online love, and a session with the lovely John Kennedy on XFM. Whatsmore, Matt Berry (he of the IT Crowd) has remixed it too. What a champ x Album next year… Just MAYBE! (So excited)
5.) And johnny foreigner are in the doghouse after yesterday releasing a track from their brand new Names EP (available in the shop as a bevvy of card-backed badges out at the end of the month) without telling the adults first! Luckily, as they’re on a whistle-stop tour of the UK and America and the song is literally mindblowing, we have forgiven them. Listen and download free here, and realise why they need a permanent residence in your heart!
So that’s all for now chaps but as ever, we love you. We need you. We care. Anyone at SWN by the way? – we’re heading down tomorrow and have a stall at the label market on Saturday and would love a beer with you (probably. Unless you’re horrible. And if you were, you wouldn’t be reading this!)
