Do not be afraid... Do not be alarmed... This is Dboy

This is a message from the Dboy Broadcasting Corporation, on behalf of the Performance and Recreation Council. Ahead of their upcoming UK takeover, Dboy has seized the means of control at Alcopop Records, ushering in a new era of sonic ingenuity and creative control. Without further ado, an introduction: Dboy play rock and roll, as rock and roll is what matters. In such serious times of aesthetic and creative austerity, Dboy stay focused on one thing: your pleasure through movement and sound. As part of this, Dboy is currently undergoing the laborious task of developing shock and awe through press and prose, so you don’t have to. Dboy’s reign of collective joy begins, but never ends with their thirteen point manifesto to end sonic austerity, which is studied closely by a group of exceptional individuals who give the boy their time and their money, and in return receive the yellow ascots and the black masks of a modern free world defined by weirdness and love – the Dboy Scouts. As Dboy takes over Alcopop records, rest assured that the time has come to tear off the shackles of aesthetic austerity, and to prove love through the exploration of the sonic avenues that lead over and around the fourth wall. Dboy is here and now.

We've signed Raketkanon - and the Belgian heroes are releasing Ricky!

Good news! Raketkanon are one of the greatest live bands in the world. And on this new record they've just announced with us (#RKTKN3) they're perhaps even better... The Quietus said 'the phonetically and evocatively titled Raketkanon are the captains of a noise that lurches like the peaks and troughs of an angry North Sea' and by golly they're right. All lyrics are delivered in their own language so you can take what you want from them - and the songs *CRUSH*. Check out the first cut from the record, Ricky, and you can even pre-order the limited edition blue in clear vinyl. OUCH.
