Flamingods Album


Flamingods album is set to be released on the 21st January on Art Is Hard. Recorded at Sound Savers, the album is one euphoric exotic jam to the next and we’re really pleased to see it come out on such a great label.

Here’s Quesso to give you a taster:



We have a third podcast, but a new format this time. From now on, each month we will invite a band that we like to come and do some recording and a short interview with us.

This is the first of the series and what better way to start it than with The Rebel. The Rebel, as you may or may not know is Ben Wallers. Ben started off making made up albums on his four track, in a bid to make the music more structured he formed the country teasers who went on to record albums for Crypt Records and In The Red.

For this session they have recorded a new version of ‘Touching the Void’, and brought a brand new track for life, which features a bass line by Georgie from plug.
Happy listening.

Left Leg

A couple of months ago we had the pleasure of recording Left Leg, we have uploaded a track up on our sound cloud as a taster of the results:

The whole session will soon be released as a tape on Capital A records:
