If you're bored & in London-town on New Year's Eve, why not check out the rather phat looking "End of the Noughties (Part 2)" - presented by Club Neurotica, Headfuk & Rum Shack & featuring live sets from crew such as Hue Jah Fink? & Ronin. Details on the live page - be there or be non-spirally!

13/01/10 - WELCOME TO THE FUTURE
Well, that was another strangely eventful year, so we'll wish you a happy & productive 2010 & then get on with the usual blurb!

RELEASE SCHEDULE FOR 2010 -
Ridiculously provisional, as always...

JANUARY:
Phuq - "More Missed Worlds" - Another MPfree version of a mini-CDR from last year - ONLINE NOW!
Wave Chaser - "Midnight Butterfly" - Contemplative & shamanic, this MPfree album is the second of two released posthumously in memory of Wave Chaser - ONLINE NOW!

THEN:
Ascetic - "(TBC)" - Absolutely amazing quality vinyl release from one of our hush-hush "new" acts, we can't wait for this - electronic / bass / psychedelic / weirdness; "Bad Esoterica if you will"!
Ascetic - "To Wound the Autumnal City" - Concentrating on the more abstract / psychedelic side of Ascetic's output, this will definitely be a bit of a stylistic departure from some of our previous releases. Available soon, in cassette runs of 50 with hand-screened covers.
CL369 - "Crushed into Powder then Sold" - MPfree EP from another new experimental project.
The Fez! - "(TBC)" - will he actually pull his finger out & deliver us an EP this year? Wait & see!
Intonamori - "Ear Weevils 2" - MP3 release of this excellent release, likely via Juno Downloads - long promised & now very nearly available to all.
Shortfacedbear / Praetorius - "Knob" - The 'bear returns to the fold with another of his wickedly imaginative videos, this time for the track "Knob", taken from a forthcoming EP by Praetorius.
Usedtobecool - "The Independent Fallacy" (12" vinyl)
weyheyhey !! - "(TBC)" - He's assured us it's definitely happening at some point!
Usedtobecool - "The Independent Fallacy" - 12" vinyl version of their wicked MPfree album from 2009.
Various - "(TBC)" - Split CD release with Bitcrusher, more as it happens...
Various - "(TBC)" - Split CD release with Love Love, more as it happens...

+ loads more percolating away in the background.
Have a good year folks :)
