Blue Coloured Vinyl 7” (Limited to 300).
Joanna Gruesome release their first material since the departure of vocalist Alanna McArdle on this limited edition coloured vinyl 7” on the Fortuna POP! Jukebox 45s singles club. Following a chance meeting in an occult bookshop, the band’s new line up features two amazing and inspiring women, Kate Stonestreet (formerly of queer punks Pennycress) on melodic vocals/shouting/screaming and Roxy Brennan (of Two White Cranes and Grubs) on melodic vocals/keyboard, joining Owen Williams (guitar/vocals), George Nicholls (guitar), Max Warren (bass) and Dave Sandford (drums).
Absolutely loved the previous EP from Barnsley’s The Salient Braves, featured on Beat Surrender in 2013 it was my favourite EP of that year, so when I spotted the band had a new EP entitled They Must Have Seen Me Coming I quickly snapped up a copy, and it another winner and come the end of the year I’m sure this EP will feature in my favourites of 2016..
The EP is available as a download or on a limited run 3″ CD single via Broken Down Records – all the proceeds from CD sales will go to CALM so not only do you get some great music you help out a fantastic charity working to raise awareness and support those affected by male suicide.
Included in the five track EP is a great cover of R.E.M.’s classic Losing My Religion – it was a cover that led me to discover the bands earlier EP as it included a version of one of my all time favourite tracks Waterloo Sunset.
This is the lead track and single from the fortcoming Billy Childish & CTMF album, out on CD and Vinyl via Damaged Goods today – the album Sq. 1 is brash, defiant, uncompromising, DIY rock ‘n’ roll of the garage variety.
