Oh how we love the Alcopop family – myself and Kev stood like proud parents, (in matching crocodile T-Shirts no doubt) gazing out at awesome bands we’ve been involved with ripping around the country doing brilliant things, and causing hearts to leap for joy on a nightly basis! A small bubblegum tear – I shan’t lie to you – is shed, with every CD, T-Shirt or positive email dispatched.
But as is the lot of an indie that there are also that lusty bunch who come on by, spend a passionate few months (or more) between the Alcopop sheets, enjoy a lusty rendezvous – and sadly must move on, nevertheless leaving both parties with fond smiles, happy memories and more than an occasional wave over the parapet.
One of these is This City, who although I can say nothing about for fear of pre-empting any announcement or exciting news, have recently flown off to Seattle to record an album (you can bet no budget of Alcopop’s would facilitate that ) and will soon be launching something rather exciting on this lucky public of ours. More details when they’re official, but you should definitely look out for the former Alcopop types in the upcoming months.
Meanwhile, the single ‘We Move’ is being taken off’ve iTunes in the next week or two (so get it quick if you want it), and would you believe – we actually have a few copies of their single on Alcopop still sitting around my bedroom. There’s not a lot – but if you want a piece of the action now, before the eBay hunters get involved, do pop on by our shop.
