Boduf Songs European Tour

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.

Nomeansno are 33 1/3 years old and they like to tour

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.

WRONG37 splatterCool. 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.

Rudimentary Peni Pope Adrian 37th Psychristiatric reissue

Pope Adrian 37th Psychristiatric

We are (finally!) be able to announce the first of our Rudimentary Peni reissues.  We’re starting with Pope Adrian the 37th Psychristiatric. Yes, we know it’s taken forever. We have worked really hard on these – remastering the audio from the original analogue tapes, presenting the original artwork in a spectacular new fashion.  In fact, we think these new versions look and sound better than the original releases.  Pope Adrian, original released in 1995, was never issued on vinyl. Now you can own it on 180gm black vinyl, in a gatefold sleeve, with a full-size 16 page book of Nick Blinko artwork, plus a bonus poster.  The CD is almost as good, except it’s CD-sized, and it doesn’t have the poster, and it’s not vinyl.  Shipping on 6th May, you can pre-order from the shop now.
