Vinyl Record News & Music Notes

Bleach Blood – ‘Anything, Anything’ – OUT MARCH 24, 2013

Bleach Blood’s second single ‘Anything Anything’ comes out on Transmission Recordings on the 24 March. Featuring haunting vocals from Linda Harrison, this track is set to cement Bleach Blood’s reputation as a must-catch act in 2013.  Already championed by Radio 1 and XFM, the track's infectiously catchy chorus and atmospheric verses recall the angular, jerky of stylings of Post-Punk as well as the more commercial strains of the likes of Two Door Cinema Club.

Born out of a bunch of songs written in a bedroom somewhere in the vibrant warehousing district of London’s Manor House comes Bleach Blood. This is ex King Blue, Jamie Jazz’s compiled love of 70’s (post) punk, dance, electronica and pop music.

Along with the thundering beats of Invisible Frank, Charlie Elliott’s synthed up bass lines and guitarist Paul Mullen’s math psych guitars, expect honest songs about love, loss, escapism, friendship and whatever else falls out of their collective heads.

“One part power pop, one part electro indie and one part squat punk” (Vive le Rock)

“We may well be looking at another seminal UK band” - Rock Sound

“Jump-around-your-garage stuff for (almost) grown-ups.”  Clash

“Electronic foundations mixed with pop melodies knitted together by some energetic dressed-in-glitter punk and a sense of contagious build up verses and effortless choruses. What's not to love?” – AltSounds

“A gem of a Brit-Rock baby” - Rock Sound

Vintage Vinyl Lovers Unite To Save Record Label

When Hurricane Sandy struck the east coast five months ago it destroyed thousands of rare records and reprints from Norton Records. The Brooklyn-based label is holding a benefit (their slogan is “You can’t drown the loud sound!”) next month at the Echo with some of the garage, surf, guitar, and East L.A. rock ‘n roll sounds from their label.
