Deadbeat Echoes video for Surge Of Youth

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.

Thanks.

Busy Mr. Ignorant

Old Igs (that’s Mr. Steve Ignorant to you) has been busy this week.  He’s posted some video interviews talking about Crass, The Last Supper tour, the Feeding Of the 5000 gigs, etc.  Have a gander.

He’s also gone and announced the date that he will sing Crass songs on stage for the last time ever. That will be 19th November at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, which will be the final date of The Last Supper tour. And he’s only got none other than The Cravats playing with him.

Go on, Igs.
