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’.

PZZ14 | JOEY FOURR - GOLD BOY

Firmly taking his seat as an AIH veteran of sorts (the only artist-official to return to Pizza Club after his first salivating bite in 2012), the waveform-shifting former Tubelord man breaks apart his recent r’n’b infused live sets for a return to his sound of old.

With the length and pace of a post-haircut shower, ‘Gold Boy’ cuts the 2 minute mark sounding nothing like the tracks that appeared on Art Reeks earlier on this year, nor does it encompass similarities to anything else on the YORCHH split (out on Tigre Discs not too long ago). As a matter of fact, head to Joey’s Soundcloud and you’ll notice that the prolific output is akin to that of a chameleon, adapting to whatever shade it wants because fuck it.

We asked Joey to put together his ideal pizza and we received this smitten recipe in return;

Lovers Delight
Tomato sauce, peppers, asparagus, sliced courgette, sweetcorn, mushrooms, tabasco, paprika.
Hit the lights low and let SWV ‘Right Here’ simmer softly in the background, dance like idiots and watch an outrageous film, get bored halfway and leave the house to cycle through the streets in the hours of the early morn whilst everyone else sleeps, look up at the stars but just see smog and laugh.

PZZ13 | H.Grimace - Cavepainter

This week we’re delighted to welcome self described surf-psych 3-piece H.Grimace to the Pizza Club. The London bands’ self titled EP quietly slipped out a couple of months ago and as well as being one of our favourites of the year, it also has some great artwork from Leif Podhajsky - check it out.

We’re honoured to be releasing new track ‘Cavepainter’ - four minutes of pulsating Sonic Youth’esque guitars that build into a blissful pop crescendo. It’s this transformation from the starkly sung words of media influence and being ‘gripped by the throat’ that make the latter part of the song such a thrill.

It’s this sort of diversification in 4 minute pop songs that has got us so excited about H.Grimace. We’re looking forward to seeing what they come up with next. For now, you can like them on Facebook.

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

We asked Hannah about what a H.Grimace pizza would look like…..something like a Cave Painting apparently. You’ll have to buy one of three limited editions of this release to find out exactly what that involves…
