Announcement: Jam Kids: 20 Years since Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain

For the second annual Cassette Store Day we will release the 12 track compilation ‘Jam Kids: 20 Years since Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain’.

Shared interests go a long way in small towns, so when two goofy teenagers bonded over a mutual love of Pavement it laid some pretty solid foundations for 4 years of running a label together. When we realised it had been 20 years since the release of their seminal album ‘Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain’ we thought we had better do something about it.

We’ve got together with some of our favourite friends, finest DIY noise makers and bands we never expected a yes from and asked each artist to cover a separate track from the album. What’s come out the other end is truly something truly spectacular.

1. Junk - Silence Kid
2. Shunkan - Elevate Me Later
3. Paws - Stop Breathin’
4. Dog Legs - Cut Your Hair
5. Joey Fourr - Newark Wilder
6. Year of Birds - Unfair
7. Pet Cemetry - Gold Soundz
8. Flamingods - 5-4=Unity
9. Trust Fund - Range Life
10. Beat Easton - Heaven is a Truck
11. The Black Tambourines - Hit the Plane Down
12. Poledo - Fillmore Jive

As it’s a bit weird making profit from other people’s music, we will be donating all profits from this release to DIY Space for London. The release is limited to 200 and comes with a series of badges.

Track 3, Paws cover of Stop Breathin’ is now streaming over on Gold Flake Paint.

If you’d like to ensure that you get your hands on a copy, please contact your local record shop and ask them to stock the release on September 27th. Any leftover copies will be sold via our shop on October 4th – if you’d like to be notified when these are available – please visit here.

PZZ15 | WULFS - MOVING OUT

An appropriately named song this week considering all my time seems to be spent planning my impending move from Bristol to Exeter. Excuse the tenuous link but it seems as though Wulfs have also done their fair bit of moving around. Just 19, they met at college in Warwickshire and have spent the summer holed up in each other’s bedrooms recording dreamy guitar pop. Come September they will both be moving again and relocating to Leeds. Moving Out is their very first track and we’re delighted to be releasing it as part of our Pizza Club.

Moving out is a beautifully restrained affair that floats along at a dreamy pace. Imagine feeling extremely woozy and spinning yourself round and round whilst all the time feeling like you’re going to spiral out of control but instead seeing everything slowly glide past in a dream like state. That’s basically what Moving Out sounds like (plus some wolf like howls thrown in for good measure). I don’t think they have a Facebook page or anything yet, but you can follow them on SoundCloud here. Free download as always above and three physical pizza box versions of this single are available on our shop right now.

PZZ15 | VIRGIN KIDS - LIFE SUPPORT

image

Last night, Mark Jasper was king. With around 199 others, I witnessed the first ever performance of Thurston Moore Band. And the second. They played the same set twice at Cafe Oto with a hefty interval. ‘Germs Burn’ broke Steve Shelley’s wooden ammunition, laying waste to accolades in a decade of music prior. An exciting event for all that sounded great; enter our true tinkering hero, soundman Mark Jasper. The very same that runs a Hackney recording studio, Soundsavers. The very same that recorded some of our seminal releases; Flamingods’ Sun and Breathe Out’s Absolute True Love. Last month Mark and his East London studio played host to The Ordinary Boys; ‘they just emailed us, I didn’t even know it was them’.

A collaborative effort between recent Pizza friends-not-foes H.Grimace are welcomed with stretchy open arms. Before you made breakfast this morning, Life Support knew how to spend its day. Token rough around-the-edges East London soundings backed by genuine charm, Asher Preston riffs on light / dark Smashing Pumpkins with short notice.

Life Support
The sweet Friday relief as the weekend dawns, Life Support is a fancy pants mouth-melting treat. ‘Stilton, caramelised pear & walnut. That’s our pretentious pick’. 

Free download as always and three physical pizza boxes are available on our shop from 1pm.
