Winning Sperm Party + Other recordings…

The Sperm party boys have recently put up a recording of the show performed in Glasgow last month! It’s a fine recording of a great show! Apart from the landlord generally cutting the set short complaining of the volume ☺
Still an amazing show and a haunting noise made by all the players! Big thanks to everyone that played including Rob, Chris for the show and Andy for some amazingly sweaty drumming!!!

ETERNAL FAGS (GLASGOW)

DIY LEGENDS OF THE GLASGOW SCENE AND WINNING SPERM PARTY LABEL RUNNERS.

“Elusive and nameless (well, we know one of them is known as ‘Chris’), Eternal Fags rose from the ashes of two of the city’s revered garage rock outfits, Plaaydoh and Dirty Summer, who had both released music on local DIY label Winning Sperm Party. It wasn’t long after forming that the ‘Fags followed in their footsteps, releasing a self-titled mini-album of brutal and nervy punk rock which showed parallels with the discordant beauty at the heart of the city’s contemporary scene, going on to garner well-deserved acclaim last year. As the band quips: “We pretty much just did it ourselves and Winning Sperm Party took the credit for it.”
Like an amalgam of the more subversive branches of heavy music heard over the past few decades, Eternal Fags serve up a volatile cocktail of overdriven guitar, primal beat-keeping, and the deranged, wordless yowling that the band passes for vocals. All of which is bolstered by a solid backbone of infectious punk hooks. What drove them to produce such a feisty wall of noise? “When we were making the songs on that album we were primarily listening to Fun House, Sabbath, Captain Beefheart and a lot of krautrock.” Go figure.” – The Skinny

SMACK WIZARDS (GLASGOW)

Also From Glasgow smack wizards are Claire O’Brien (drums), Waldo (bass) and Jack Mellin (guitar). Working together to create semi-improvised loosely written pop songs. Every show is a unique blend of noise, rock and pop, bringing elements of dinosaur Jr and arab on radar with them. Expect an electrifiying performance which is both engaging, fun and semi-improvised. Not to be missed…

AN ISLAND – 3rd TEASER – Vincent Moon & Efterklang from Rumraket on Vimeo.

In August 2010, French filmmaker Vincent Moon and Efterklang’s 8 piece-live band met up on an island in the Danish country side. The objective was to shoot a film. A film with the same length as an album, and a film full of performances, experiments and collaborations.

Over an intense period of 4 days Efterklang collaborated with more than 200 local musicians, kids and parents, creating new performances and interpretations of songs from their Magic Chairs album. It was all filmed by Vincent Moon who same time conducted several filmic and musical experiments with Efterklang as his dedicated play mates.

Before hand we will be playing the Animal Collective visual album “ODDSAC”

First review…….and distro yo!

So the record went to Norman records last week and is now
available to buy from their site. They even kindly wrote a very
generous review of the record giving the fucker 5 out of 5!!!!!!
Here is the link to the site:

http://www.normanrecords.com/vinyl/122214-peter-james-taylor-mate

And here is a very generous review!!!!

“This is a pretty astounding sounding record. Taking time off from his main band Action Beat, PJT has assembled a contemporary UK “guitar army” in the vein of ol’ Noisy bastard Glenn Branca’s NY outfit. ‘Mate’ is the result. A taut, wiry collision of furious and mighty monotone guitar thrash & some seriously insane Steve Shelley-esque drum abuse. This incredibly fine record reminds you of what it is like to get caught right in the eye of a prime SY maelstrom or the culmination of an Action Beat curated aural tornado. This is rock music on a very pure, electrifying plain. Forceful, intelligent, relentless, euphoric & very loud. But with the source ingredients being relatively minimal, you’re getting all the uncluttered detail. Just galloping, driving drums & walls of fierce guitars that slice up and down the side of your face like the most brutal biting wind. Put this vicious fucker on and you’ll get forced right slam into the back of your sofa, such is the velocity & fury of this very righteous rock. Power on boys. Stellar line-up also includes memebers of House of John Player & Hired Muscle!”

In other news MUGSTAR have just confirmed to play our second gig at
the new venue in town!!!! So expect some more details in the coming
weeksssssssssssss.
