Mat Sweet is bringing his new album Burnt Up On Re-Entry to venues across Europe. He will be touring with the delightful Jessica Bailiff, so there are two great reasons not to miss out.
Meanwhile please enjoy the second video from Burnt Up On Re-Entry, for “A Brilliant Shaft Of Light From Out Of The Night Sky”. You might also want to consider picking up one of the limited edition shirts (“Everyone will let you down in the end”) we have available from the web shop.

These days, punk is like classic rock. It’s “oldies”. People who liked punk when it was actually happening are in old age homes now. They have great-grandchildren. They remember the time before there was electricity.
Nomeansno are like that. They started their band in 1979, which apart from being 33 1/3 years ago (which is coincidentally the number of rounds per minute on a long-playing vinyl record), is also before the invention of the motor car. Go on, look it up.
Nomeansno put out a record called Old, because that’s what they are. It’s been out of print for a while so we just pressed some more up in black & white splatter vinyl. Check this out.
Cool. right? Well we thought so.
Nomeansno are also touring. They do that a lot. Old people get stuck in their habits and they don’t like change. They’re coming to the UK for the first time in about five years, and to be honest, in the live environment, they kick the shit out of any band formed since about 1999. Which is pretty impressive for old people.
Bletchley’s infamous sons Action Beat are packing up all their musical mayhem and putting it in the back of a van. Next week they start a tour of Europe, their first tour since May 2012 (for most bands that wouldn’t be saying much, but Action Beat once lived on the road).
Seeing Action Beat live is truly an exceptional experience, and we are more than a little miffed that there are no UK dates on this tour. Europe is clearly a better place to be!
Action Beat are touring with four other bands (not all shows, check locally for details) and they will have copies of their latest Truth Cult opus The Condition available for sale.
