The roguish Membranes are back with the brilliant triple A-side ’If You Enter The Arena, You’ve Got To Be Prepared To Deal With The Lions’; their first offering in nigh on 22 years. Released in a limited 7 inch vinyl run of just 500 on Louder Than War, you’d better get your mitts on it quick from the Southern webshop, or as a download direct from Louder Than War. The title track sits proudly on it’s own on the A side, with the feisty “B.O.O.T.S.” and euphoric “Everything’s Brilliant” bringing up the rear on the B side.
It seems only too right that Louder Than War should be the label of choice for releasing the long-awaited new Membranes single, with their frontman, John Robb, being the actual founder of the label which sprung from the influential music site of the same name. Aiming primarily to provide a platform for emerging artists discovered by the discerning eyes and ears at Louder Than War, their releases will also see the occasional nugget from legends, or in this case gladiators, from the music world. To see exactly what we mean, take a look at the Membranes entering the arena in style…
If you weren’t convinced to go and add this gem to your collection before, surely you will be now.
These lions and dashing outfits were brought to you for the princely sum of £35
Yes, that’s right, Raised On Replicas have brought out a new video for “OMG” that’s just about as sharp as drummer Annalise’s fringe. Hailing from Brighton, the four piece Raised on Replicas were the second band to tack their name to the blossoming label Louder Than War, founded by John Robb (of Membranes and Goldblade fame) after he decided to extend the Louder Than War empire from the brilliant music website of the same name. Aiming to bring much deserved exposure to worthy bands with a series of 7 inch releases they may be small, but my oh my are they perfectly formed!
“OMG” is the first track on the band’s single, so less of the teasing and here’s the video for your viewing pleasure…
Raised on Replicas addition to Louder Than War’s catalogue features a total of two fantastic ditties- “OMG” and the flip-side ”Sometimes”. This little gem is limited to just 300 7 inch black vinyl copies which you can treat yourself to in our shop, or as a download through Louder Than War.
Deadbeat Echoes had the honour of being the first band to release a single on Louder Than War’s new record label. Curated by John Robb, the label is promising a steady stream of exciting new music in seven inch form. Southern is proud to be partners with Louder Than War on the label and we’re having a grand old time getting our seven inch groove on.
Now Deadbeat Echoes, Louder Than War, and Southern are chuffed as Punch to present the ace video for “Surge Of Youth”, the A-side of the single. The band are fresh off their tour supporting Inspiral Carpets and will be announcing some more gigs soon. Meanwhile you can pick up their limited edition single from our shop, or buy the download from Louder Than War.
