This is the last single from what I have to describe as the awesomely successful Beer vs. Records project. We haven’t sold out yet, but I have to confess, I never anticipated being this close to doing so. We can’t usually sell 250 of anything this fast, with the exception of a couple of the bands we work with, and given this was hardly a high-profile release I have to confess I wasn’t all that sure how it would go.
Anyhow, I’ll officially announce the winner next week, but for now, this is the last of the live videos we made during recording, and it’s a truly awesome pop song by Zed Penguin. We ended up including the live guide vocal in this mix, and loading it with distortion, just to give the chorus that extra bit of snarl. I think it works really well – I love this song, and I’m really glad I had the chance to record it.
We still have a few copies of the Split 12″ available too, and you can get the beer in Vino in Edinburgh, The God Spirit Company in Glasgow and Rough Trade East in London, I think, assuming they have any left.
