In the light a normal LightGuides boy, but in a club or at night a mad, freaky character all glowing tattoos, teeth and eyes – proper Samba Samba Samba… (Tees all pale yellow except for skinnyfit which are in pink).
It’s been a real try before you buy vibe on our latest album release, Measures by the Attika State. That’s probably because it’s such an awesome record we’re pretty confident that anyone who does give it a little taste, will definitely want it all and thus, whip out the wallet (or at least download it illegally).
It’s been featured on this months RockSound covermount, splashed all over Project Rodney – and now it’s all over the rather ace Punktastic to stream – the whole bloody lot! What’s more, if you look at awesome websites (This is Fake DIY/ CPMU/ Alter the Press and loads more) there’s a track to download too. Ace – it’s nice to see stuff get about.
But yeah – the crux of this post is essentially to let you know that the album is out this week, the boys are crashing about the country showcasing it in strong venues, and you can buy it from the PoP Shop for just £8. What’s more, if you get it real quick you’ll still be able to get a bonus EP disc – featuring The Attika State live and acoustic in G&D’s ice cream parlour in Oxford.
Whatsmore – perennial PoP favourites My First Tooth is up for pre-order as well (out mid October with an amazing bonus TBC for the first 50 purchasers) – and if you get that as well, then hell, we’ll chuck in The Sunshine EP by rapidly rising starlets The Candle Thieves too!
Apologies any Italians who have got through to this page expecting to find career statistics on their raven-haired former captain Pierluigi – but I’m very glad you did. Because that’ll give me a chance to tell you about the debut EP release by the similarly monikered band from Sheffield, now available in our shop.
As for the EP itself, the 5 track behemoth hovers somewhere between epic and tumultuous, switching from huge orchestral sonatas to punchier power pop and well, you’ll really have to have a listen to it yourself… As I’m not really sure how to do this one justice.
CD is lovingly artworked and hand crafted with lavish-looking folded cardboard sleeve (with kookaburra present) – and for a very limited period we have mega deal packs to ive away for just a shade over a tenner, which include a magnificent Kookaburra tee (well of course)… But we’ve literally got 20, tops (below), so do order quick.
Oh – and I probably should take this opportunity to tell you that postage rates are fixed in the pop shop however much stuff you buy. 75p to UK for 1 or 1000 discs (although you may struggle to find the latter in our shop J) – so have yourselves a butchers….
Ah August, look at you so gloomy out there… Refusing to make any of us smile with your cloudy face. Well f**k you you bleak old bi**h, because great news is afoot for those of you who may be missing sun on your face, but enjoy it in your heart.
But wait! There’s more! As you may know, the boys have recently been traversing the gardens of England playing a lovely tour outside in folk’s houses, and we were keen for people to take a little bit of the Candle Thieves magic back to their own gardens… Therefore, the first 20 people to order the EP (on CD) will get a promo TCT seed bag to plant or keep, all branded up with TCT/Alcopop stickers and badge – and limited (strictly) to just 100. Plus the first 10 we ship out are fully signed by the lovely Scott and Glock.
