It’s our pleasure to announce the bands that will be joining us on our trip across the UK in February.

First up. LDN Blues-punk duo Swanton Bombs:

Right in time for the release of a new 7″ and followed by the release of new album Mumbo Jumbo and Murder, following stints with Jay Reatard and our former touring buddies Girls, Swanton Bombs will be ensuring audiences are suitably blooded and bruised before we enter centre stage.

And first on will be Islet.

A band that have, pretty much zero internet presence which is, maybe kind of cool but not ideal for me in trying to sell them to you. They HAVE had an NME Radar piece written on them though; quite the high praise. I am ASSURED there will be some internet presence somewhere soon. We played with them for the first time in Cardiff the other day and witnessed an off the scale performance of…well, why don’t you hear for yourself:

Ughhh I hate you!! (but not really) I love Swanton Bombs SO MUCH SO MUCH SO MUCH and then of course you just play with them in the UK. Why not take them to the continent? I fell in love with them when I saw them supporting Girls. Or what would be even better: take Swanton Bombs and Frankie & The Heartstrings with you and make me cry. No lie: I would actually cry tears of happiness.

Do it! (you did it with Sky Larkin and Lovvers last year anyway so…)
Or take both to Eurosonic cause I’m probably going to that too. PLEASE?


PS: I voted for the NME thing.

I know the album isn’t out yet and you were in America more than half the year last year, but when are you guys coming back.
