Have we all recovered from Glastonbury? I do hope so, and well done for leaving it so tidy this year. Yes. We’re back with another rough guide to where and when our gifted and beautiful clientele are parading their musical talents.
Firstly though, a couple of newsy things. Foundlings have brought to our attention their input into this rather lovely thing, a cassette compilation from Friction Shifter. All music on the album is by female or LGBTQ artists and moneys raised go to Mermaids a UK based charity that offers support to transgender and gender variant children and young people, their families and supporting professionals. It is released on the 26th July but you can pre-order it NOW!
Also out this month, but in a slightly unorthodox and wholly interactive way, Dog Of Man release their album Dogmatic Manual, one song a week, the first release is on Wednesday 3rd July. There’ll be a poll and you get to influence the album and everything. Meanwhile you can listen to the single Wedding Night Erection Failure on Soundcloud.
A couple of sad to hears – The Borderline venue will be closing its doors at the end of August, another victim to rising rents. Also, gutted to learn that Janet Weiss has left Sleater Kinney, love that band and she’s such an awesome drummer. SAD.
Also, if you’ve got down this far, and you fancy helping a sister out, my very own band Hurtling were featured on Amazing Radio’s Audition show, if you have a minute to go to the poll and vote for us that would be AMAZE.
Anyway, I’m off to watch some tennis…Daaaahling, where’s my Pimms?
