Get startled yeah… I’m watching Nathan Barley and my god I love it as much as when I first blooded my peepers to it the first time around! Sometimes I think that the Alcopop offices should be a little more like Sugar Ape magazine. Sure Kev’s always riding around on a tiny tricycle and ‘cock, muff, bumhole’ is regularly played – but we really need more preacher man costumes.
Anyway – moving on to more important issues… You may note that the second batch of limited edition Alcopop T-Shirts have been ordered, despatched and they’re going to look super ace. Due to extremely popular demand the crocodile design is back, along with Andrew WK’s killer quote that he once scribed on a friend of Kev’s gig ticket – ‘You go and tell your friends that you’re my friend’… But as promised – green and yellow are never to be re-printed, so this time it’s white on red. Oh yes!
As before, there are only 20 of these ever to be crafted and ready to grace the chests of heroic Alcopoppers across the globe (ever). So do feel free to pop into the shop and order one now, and set yourself up to be quite the most handsome kid on your street.
They’re well Jackson!

Fearne Cotton’s a dreamboat! Definitely the kind of girl we’d invite to the Alcopop staff Christmas party (so long as she got the first round in) and no doubt the kind who’d be up for a damn fine evening out, maybe taking in a sweaty gig followed by a kebab/fried chicken in the rain, before stumbling to some dodgy offy where we’d purchase insanely expensive cans of Tusker Kenyan lager. Would there be a fleeting/awkward kiss? Yeah probably, but I’m sure we could move beyond that.
So basically, what I’m saying is that she’d always be welcome at the Alcopop HQ – even more so now after having been snapped wearing a This City Tote bag, presumably containing a copy of the very limited third single ‘We Move’, available at all good record shops, especially this one, about now!
You may have bought a record or two, been to the gigs and consumed excessive amounts of Alcopop’s throughout your lives – but today is a dramatically exciting day in Alcopop history… For the first time, I can proudly announce that you can now brand your chest with an Alcopop T-shirt – and not just that, but a rather cool looking crocodile (named Alcocroc) on a skateboard with a cap, and a quote from Alcopop’s favourite rocking American – Mr Andrew WK!
“You go and tell your friends that you’re my friend!” Pretty damn positive I think, and ideal to usher in the new world order that Obama is rocking… I’d be surprised if he doesn’t buy one himself! Hope you like it… Logo is below, they’re very high quality fabric and we currently have them in YL, S, M and L.
If he does want one, he better be quick though – because in true Alcopop style, we’re limiting this run of shirts to a profoundly small number (I’m talking 20 here), so that all the coolest kids can forever prove that they were on it before anyone else. I’m not saying we’ll not reuse the design (‘cos we love it) but this is the only time the shirts will be available in yellow on green.
So if you fancy getting a little PoP, and shamelessly promoting our logo all about your town – head over to the shop… and purchase for £8. Oh, and remember that although we do charge postage (sorry), it’s only 50p – and that 50p will cover whatever you want, whatever you like, whatever you say, you pay your money, you take your choice etc.

Yup – tis official, Room 13 clearly know their stuff and have rated their recent Everest single (out on Alcopop a few weeks ago via digital download only – buy here -) 10 out of 13… I won’t cut and paste the whole review, which can be read over here, but fo’ sho’ it’s a cracker:
“Exposing enough aggressive venom to have mosh pits swarming and fists frantically punching the air, CTBW sweep in with a killer blow as they release pop hooks that wield a fatal blow as ‘Everest’ lives up to its name with a sound that is undeniably huge.”
Look out for an EP on its way with summer!
Meanwhile, our erstwhile pals at the deliciously monikerd shitthreadsnofriends blog (who seem to specialise in scantily clad girls and boys pouting a lot, along with hot nuns in tights – good subject matter no denying), have picked up on my dazzling bag (it really is dazzling) that I found for 4 sheets in a bizarre Bristol bar sale, and run with the, I quote, “rock cum camp disco style”. Bangin’
