Not sure who’s going to fill the indie-pop chasm that will be left behind when Fortuna POP! close the doors after twenty years , but there’s still a chance to get your hands on the last few 45s that are being released as part of the labels swansong singles club set, Cinema Red And Blue’s “Come Back To The City, Babyface” is one of those final few pop gems.
Martha return with their second album Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart this Friday, via Fortuna POP! (UK/EU) and Dirtnap Records (US). Produced again by MJ from Hookworms, the album explores the difficulties in staying political, staying passionate and staying punk over the course of eleven expertly crafted pop songs. The band will be hitting the road in July, playing their biggest London headline gig to date at the Tufnell Park Dome on 22 July, with support from their pals Trust Fund.
