We’re not trying to get you to spend ALLLLLL your money. Honest! But the gods of late August/early September have let it be known that they prefer a primarily Alcopop diet – and a damn fizzy one at that. See, not only are we mere days away from announcing another Johnny foreigner release (srsly im lrning lex spk too) – but we have perhaps one of our lovliest offerings in some time… Out today!
To sum up the story behind it (in a nutshell), our lovely new lady Katie Malco was keen to get out and see the sites during a summer tour of gardens, small festivals and such – so we hooked her up with two of our most beautiful boys in Warren Attika State and Matt Emery Stagecoach – booked a few shows and sent them packing. So far they’ve met ferrets in Capel, battled football hooligans with melody in Kingston – even partying in Bristol with spaghetti a-plenty.
To celebrate such endeavours, all 3 of them got together, recorded some lovely lo-fi songs with the help of Warren’s cat (seriously, you can hear her on the end of Warren’s Frank Turner esque belter 6 shots) – commited them to CD and digital locations – whilst all 3 artists and I (with Lady PoP) hand painted 25 sleeves each for putting them in. All individual, you’ve got owls, flags, kittens and even a picture of Warren looking very much like a sugarpuff monster. Voila! The threEPeople (clever name huh, yeah.. Thanks Elliott Morris)
You don’t know what you’re going to get – but you do know it’ll be bloody lovely! Available now from the PoP Shop for just 3 sheets, you can’t lose… You really can’t! Special Matt Emery related prize to anyone who snares the owl cover art (below).
