  • Can this blog post be written in JUST FIFTEEN MINUTES? Only one way to find out. Start your stopwatches......NOW. Ok, fuckyeah, how y'all doing? Good, great, cool. The last hours numbered zero to twenty-four (have you noticed how we're refraining from using numeric characters to take up way more space than would otherwise be tolerated, in an attempt to reach an ascertainable word count ample enough to cover the preview-y bit on the blog homepage? No? Now ya do) can really only be described as fully mental. You know how our dreams basically came true around about two years ago? Well, episode fuckin' two is about to kick in and we couldn't be more delighted. Whether or not this means our proverbial cash-cow has come in to moo-hoo-hoo all our woes away - not that we really have any, which is cool - remains to be seen, but fuck are we excited for everything that's about to happen. Maybe you'll hear about it, maybe you won't. Anyway, Rob bloody Turnham's been up to his old tricks again, and not more than...

We may as well start prefixing Wednesdays with the word wings (or wangs, which of course is way better and more delicious), because that’s where we’re likely to be at from now until Ragnarok. Indeed, since joining Brother Tim’s band of merry men and women for a long overdue session at The Bull in Highgate … Read more

Given the heady outlook for the week which largely involves spreadsheeting the actual crap out of everything that could possibly be spreadsheeted, and touting around the wicked-cool idea we had a couple of weeks ago to a whole bunch of peeps who seem fully up for enabling us to get on with it all, we’re … Read more

God DAYUM that sleep was amazing. In the office till damn near 11ish we were. Concerned text messages from Brother Tim ensued. He wanted to know where we were at, lest our ritualistic endeavour of sitting around on the living room sofas watching South Park and moaning about pretty much everything ever whilst trying to … Read more

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd we’re back. How you doing? Did you miss us? Resort to some seriously spicy alternative shit to get your new musical kicks whilst we spontaneously took off? But you missed the swearing, didn’t you? Sure, there are blogs out there who are more on-it than we are; who have hype machine plaudits coming out … Read more

Kinda lost ourselves for a minute there huh. Pardon us. We did the done-thing of having a few drinks into the wee hours and by gum we are paying for it now. Today is going slow. Reeeeeeeeeeal slow. Thankfully there was nothing in the not-even-remotely-proverbial diary this morning. Now there is plenty. Some chaps from … Read more

[Release: Racing Glaciers Announce Free Download of "VHS" Ahead Of Releasing New EP]

We’ve never been particularly good at keeping a secret; especially when it comes to expressing personal sentiments of bitterness, resentment, and the occasional burst of clandestine self-loathing. It is ironic that the ostensible forum-turned-amplifier for these sentiments known as the internet can be simultaneously a catalyst for both the positive and negative implications of spilling … Read more

We seriously dig alternative versions. Reworks. Remixes. Re-whatever. Think it’s great. Infinite diversities in infinite combinations. Given that we’ve been in the throws of A&R mode lately, particularly in regards to two particular producer types that we roll deep with on the reg, one might imagine how many versions of the same tracks we’ve been … Read more

[Track Of The Day: JOY. "Captured"]

Y’all ever seen a flying ant give birth to another flying ant right in front of you? Didn’t think so. It’s really quite disgraceful. Not only did these little shits have the audacity to flutter and blutter like the prickly pears they are – even on several occassions going for a swan-dive into our reassuringly-expensive … Read more

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Sorry. For swearing (yeah, right). How you doing? Yeah? Cool, shut up. We’re worried we’ve fractured our brain. We’ve ingested so much caffeine on this day that we’re basically crying decaff. It’s all good though. Lots and lots of good stuff serving as a more-than-ample and very welcome distraction to the several-million bits and … Read more
