ASDFG present kind of a singles club but with comics…
The first episode of a new online music show from George and Louise. It’s curated by Jake May and features a hard hitting journalistic interrogation that reveals the inner workings of Joanna Gruesome, a trip to the tattoo parlor to get endearing matching daisies with Playlounge and a live session from Ides.
The best gigs in London this week…
Joey Fourr is kind of BFFs with Playlounge. In fact when he plays live they’re his backing band when schedules permit. As an extension of this love he’s covered their song ‘Revolution Summer’. The opening lyrics are “I miss our talks of life and love /I can’t find the words /she cut off my tongue” . This seems to add a layer of poignancy that almost induces tears.
Our buddies from Playlounge went on tour last month with Johhny Foreigner. Sam wrote up the experience and took some disposable snaps along the way. A story of Travelodge nights, pizza, video games and punk rock.
This is the second single from the Fantasy Rainbow album “Condominium” which comes out on Heist Or Hit Records on the 29th of October. The Gavin Randall directed video features the dancing talents of a few of our favourite people, Ides is in there and half of Playlounge, might be some others we know as well but it’s hard to tell amidst the balloons.
Playlounge are releasing their debut EP, Thrash Magic, through Fear & Records on the 22nd October, take a listen here.
‘Conor, Oh Burst?’ is taken from their recent super-split with Gum, Keel Her and Joanna Gruesome on Art Is Hard Records and is just over a minute of thrilling noise pop that now comes with its very own i-phone shot video.
Puntasticly titled track from Playlounge from their split with Gum, Keel Her and Joanna Gruesome on Art Is Hard Records. Four great bands and a great label, you really should click here and snap up the rest of the release. As a fun game why not see if you can work out who’s who in the art work. I think I’ve got most of them.
The Art Is Hard Pizza Club is always great but this one is extra exciting. Playlounge are one of my favourite bands in the UK at the moment and it’s hard not to love everything that’s Keel Her related, so putting them all together is obviously a brilliant idea. Been loving this live for a while, now that it has been recorded everyone can enjoy it whenever they want.
