Feel Guide Vol. 7

Quimper have a song on the latest Feel Guide compilation, which is being released on vinyl by the fine people at ShanGORIL La Records. Compiled by the Caliper Music blog, the Feel Guide series collects what can loosely be described as experimental music, but is really a huge variety of ideas from a huge variety of artists. I think this is the first time Quimper have ever had something out on vinyl, and I'm quite happy that said song is about a little egg with legs that walks about a bit. You can have a listen/buy the record at the link below.

Petunia-Liebling MacPumpkin - Button Eyes (featuring Chip the Black Boy) 

The second video to be taken from the I Left My Heart In Uncanny Valley album, this time for the song Button Eyes, which first appeared on our Soft Bodies Eat Bees compilation. It has puppets. Many puppets. Big puppets, small puppets, musical puppets, vaguely famous puppets, sinister's mostly sinister puppets, come to think of it. The dead eyes in the picture on the left belong to the watchful and ever vigilant gaze of Nigel. Pray you never meet it.

The Petunia videos have come a long way from the early Fish Drive days. The fact they're all DIY and mostly (with the occasional guest here and there) all the work of one person is a great example how there really is no limit to what you can do as long as you have an imagination. Gawp below.

The Cleaners From Venus - Eye Tunes - June 17th

A rare gig from Mr Martin Newell with all proceeds to NHS Glaucoma Services, who very kindly unwonked Martin's eyes last year. I think the Greatest Living Englishman will be getting played live in it's entirety, along with various other bits and bobs from the back catalogue. A grand day out for a good cause.

New album Star Cafe should also be out by the end of May, featuring a guest turn from our very own Jodie Lowther. More on that nearer the time.

That's all for now, more news on the way in a week or two. Lots happening. Argh.

Oh, and thank you to those who put a couple of quid our way for the Werdwolfen album. Very lovely of you.
