We're extremely chuffed to announce that the fantastic fuzzpop duo Horowitz from Stoke/Nottingham will be coming to these shores in October! It's the resourceful Don't Tell Me That! who have finally convinced them, and of course Don't Die On My Doorstep are in on the deal. On Tuesday the 27th the walls at På Besök will have guitars bouncing off them and John from the secret pop heroes of Malmö: Chocolate Barry, will be playing records. John also plays with the in no way inferior garage trio The Branded and we're looking forward to his selections! There might even be an equally fantastic support act..
Horowitz's next single is first on the list of upcoming releases on Cloudberry, and it will be their best record so far! It felt virtually impossible to top "Tracyanne", but with "How to Look Imploring" c/w "The Drunks Are Writing Punk Songs" they have achieved it. We know because we played it almost a year ago already! An mp3 should turn up on Cloudberry HQ soon, otherwise check it out on Myspace. Already out is an ep with 3 even fresher recordings. On Stephen's This Almighty Pop! label, "Super Snuggles" should already be selling as fast as the drum machine beat of the title-track. It's a slightly new direction for the band, heralded by "Drop the Hat" on January's WeePOP! compilation Starting Anew. They have stifled the sugar-rush somewhat and present us with three thoughtfully varied songs - from the melodic hit-potential of "Super Snuggles" to the beautiful waltz "The Boy From Whatstandwell". "Winona" (presented below, via This Almighty Pop!) lands somewhere in the middle, with it's chugging spiral stairs guitar.
