BAKE SALE

Not actually a bake sale as the title suggests but a Vinyl sale.  I just used that title to draw you in.  Top web marketeer me.

I was speaking with Ben the label honcho from Front Wall Records in Manchester who released our first single “No Friend of Mine/Young Defeatists” and among many things we discussed the rise in energy prices, and the recently projected rise in poverty levels.  This is a serious thing, so we decided rather than be defensive we’re going to move with the markets, give something back like when Jessie J retweets a fan…we are so noble…we are to lower the price of the Vinyl!

…I KNOW!

So here it is in picture form to entice you:

That’s a real person, that’s not us holding it as well.  I just found it on the internet so we’re clearly famous or something.

Anyway, this is now going to be available to buy for £3 either at gigs or from  http://music.clubsmith.co.uk and you will get a free download code to download it too.

The downloads cost about £1.50 from itunes and amazon and what not so for a further £1.50 you get the downloads and the vinyl, which is rather sparkly and in limited supply.   That is like WICK.

We’re putting together some album tracks and going into the white rooms in York to live demo them…you can hear some of that in the background here whilst Neil and Vijay play with a peg. Yes a peg:

New Video – No Friend of Mine

Well, we’ve been really excited about this for a long while now…here’s the new video for our Single “No Friend of Mine”

I don’t want to say too much about how it was made just yet, but it involved 3 months training 5 days a week, full on ‘method acting’ I suppose. It’s filmed by Grizzly Bros. who are Danny North and Tim Blackwell. Hope you like it.

Worth mentioning we got some amazing support in making this video from York Boxing Club. So huge thanks to everyone there especially Lewis Gell and Pat. Check them out at www.yorkboxingclub.co.uk

NEW SINGLE – PRE-ORDER IT NOW

Werd,

So we’ve been pretty excited about this a while…Club Smith are releasing a single! Woo!

It’s a double A side of “No Friend of Mine” and “Young Defeatists” that we recorded late last year. You can get it on limited edition 7 inch and download from all good independent and digital stores (we’ll give you a list closer to the day) on Monday 6th June. Pre-order the 7 inch using the link below:

 

‘DUDE, LIKE TOTALLY CLICK ME TO PRE-ORDER’

 

A talking hyperlink…who’d have thought it?!

You can hear it on the player below…

 

And it would be REALLY AWESOME if you hit the SHARE button and shared the single with people.

Check out the artwork too…


We’re doing a video too, and a bunch of gigs (some already confirmed are on this page on the right) so stick around, keep coming back and keep passing on the good news like repeating the mantra “Rejoice, for Club Smith are releasing a single!” or words to that effect for example.  I think that’s how the Beatles got big or something.

The single is on Front Wall Records…a charming new collective from Manchester…check them out at www.frontwallrecords.co.uk

6music today

Steve Lamacq played us on his 6music show today. This is really cool for us as the recordings were only completed three weeks ago!  It’s on iplayer, and is currently the only place on the internet that streams anything from our new recordings in full…if you’ve got time you should listen to the whole show as it’s consistently ace but if not we’re the last song on…

By the way, I can report back that The Chapman Family are a RIDICULOUS GOOD LIVE BAND. I encourage you to see them soon if you missed us supporting them on Sunday.
