Eddie Argos meets Tony Slattery in the latest Art Brut video

They say don't meet your heroes, but no one told us not to mess with superheroes. For so long now the Brut's Eddie Argos has been thinking about how he resembles comedy legend Tony Slattery (ever notice that on his Twitter bio?) and joking that they should make a video together, so we're psyched that it's finally happened! 

The video for 'Your Enemies Are My Enemies Too' includes cameos from Helen Love, Michael Legge and Rhi Lee, and it's one hell of a comic adventure. You can read about the shoot and watch it over on The British Comedy Guide >>here<<

False Advertising Sign to Alcopop! We get excited!

We've only gone and signed the coolest three-piece in Manchester - False Advertising!

After various band member arrangements and ad-hoc instrument swapping, False Advertising have settled into one of the most exciting groups on the scene, and we're psyched to have them on board. We're getting goosebumps just thinking about their upcoming debut album 'Brainfreeze', out 8th November which you can get here.

This band is about connecting with people, but it’s also a very personal catharsis. With ‘Brainfreeze’, I really want people to feel like it’s inclusive. It’s not just our tirade against the world, we want people to feel welcome in the way they experience this band.” - Jen

DZ Deathrays new material - and we're IN-TO-IT!

There's a new DZ Deathrays album and we are IN-TO-IT! ♡♡♡♡ Because this is the first cut from their brand new album, Positive Rising: Part 1... New look. Same killer shreds. Good news is that you can pre-order the new album Positive Rising on UK/Euro blue and gold exclusive vinyl (or CD/ shirt/ digitally) - but before you do that, why don't you take a look at the new video, stream the single - or just gaze longingly at DZ and allow them into your heart....

Hellogoodbye and itoldyouiwouldeatyou unite - sing songs of love <3

Hellogoodbye, AKA our pal Forrest, is on a monstrous tour of the US, and much to our delight he's-a-headed to the UK for some shows at quite delicious venues, including the wonderful Bush Hall, King Tuts, The Sound House and Slam Dunk Festival. Perhaps the best thing about it too, is that he's taking our other most dearly beloved emo wonders - itoldyouiwouldeatyou - along for the ride.

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.

data.select.party reunite for Christmas treat!

Magical things happen at Christmas. Much as we all sometimes want to be a candy-cane-snapping, bauble-smashing, proper bah-humbug scrooge, there are certain events that just convince us that that jolly fella in a red suit (bold choice) really does have some tricks up his sleeve. We can’t help but think that this year the twinkle in his eye comes from the joy of knowing that a special data.select.party show is happening!

Alcopop! Party in Newport // Let's go Le Pub!

Basically - one of our favourite venues in the world is Le Pub in Newport. It's run by some sensational people who really give a shit about everything they put on. They pay the guarantees they offer (however many people turn up), they work with great bands, they help people out and they bleed for the local Newport community. It's the kind of venue we should all support. So we decided to move there for our Christmas Party. You in?
