POST FESTIVAL COMEDOWN CURES – PART 3: SUNDAY’S LINE UP

SUNDAY, 16th August -Todmorden Unitarian Church.
RAISING HOLY SPARKS

Well, you really can’t go wrong with the most Raising Holy Sparks album:

Already picked it up at the festival? Then get this epic double album:

TERRINE:
For a quick fix of more Terrine noise you really can’t go wrong with this name your price EP called “Mes seins plutôt que français” which seems to translate as “My breasts are rather French” but don’t quote me on that as I can barely manage my own language never mind that of our neighbours.

SAM MCLOUGHLIN

Mr.Mcloughlin’s set was, as usual, very new sounding. Its closest to the work he has put out under the name N.Racker but good luck finding any of that stuff, it sold out pretty fast. You can listen to some on the website http://www.nracker.co.uk/

GIRL SWEAT
FUCK YEAH! You know you need more. I hugely endorse “Live! The Drunk Clairvoyancy”, so much so that I put it out on tape last year but all copies of that went RIGHT FUCKING AWAY. But you can get a pay what you like download straight from the man himself:

WOVEN SKULL WITH CORE OF THE COALMAN

Woven Skull have a new album out on vinyl and download from:

When it comes to Core Of The Coalman I’m very partial to this release:

As for collaborative releases, there’s just been a self-titled tape for Feathered Coyote. Its been a regular staple of my DJ sets ever since but while the tape is long sold out, the download is pay what you can:

FLAMINGO CREATURES:

Ruth-Maria & Ronnie have put out a lot of split releases but this pay what you can download is for a long sold out album from Cosmic Winnetou:

LAURA CANNELL
Laura’s set at the festival drew heavily on her imminent new album “Beneath Swooping Talons”, which you can preview and preorder from

HELLVETE
If you missed out on the LPs on the merch table, Blackest Rainbow still have 12 copies left of this deep classic:

RICHARD DAWSON
Richard’s not on Bandcamp, but you can get his most recent album “Nothing Important” in all good record stores.

Oh and my DJ set at after-party? It’s now on mixcloud, celebrating 10 years of wasistdas.co.uk

10 by Was Ist Das? on Mixcloud

POST FESTIVAL COMEDOWN CURES – PART 2: SATURDAY’S LINE UP

SATURDAY
DESMADRADOS SOLDADOS DE VENTURA
The Manchester noise rock orchestra who started things off have a new slab of vinyl out on Golden Lab Records: http://goldenlabrecords.com/

ISNAJ DUI
Katie’s new album “Dioptrics” was a big seller at the merch stall but if you missed out you can still buy the handmade CDR or the download from:

If you already grabbed one at the event and are now hungry for more already then I’d suggest “After The Flood” a 20 minute piece made in response to the 2012 Hebden Bridge floods. Very apt as Todmorden came a couple of inches from flooding on the Friday of the festival. CDR long gone but only £3 for a download

DANIEL VOIGT
Daniel has only just started to use his actual name so I’m going to have to point you to a favourite of mine recorded under his previous alias of Hering und seine sieben Sachen. Name your price

GUTTERSNIPES

Guttersnipes are a brand new band with only this debut EP to offer to you. However, download only is name your price and the handmade CDRs are only £2!

AMBROSIA(@)

You can download Ambrosia(@)’s newest release “Neacute Veacute” from http://www.bombshop.org/projects/ambrosia-neacute-veacute/ and also play the retro computer game created to celebrate its release

BIRD PEOPLE
Bird People have built up a formidable and extensive discography but I’m gonna be totally corrupt and point you to their newest release which I’ve put out on cassette: http://wasistdas.co.uk/label/bird-people-constellations/

KEMPER NORTON

Kemper Norton’s bandcamp has this rare EP for a nice price:

and also a series of Unrequited EPs for free

CHICALOYOH

Most of Chicaloyoh’s set came from her new EP “Les Sept Salons”. If you forgot to pick up a vinyl on the night it can still be bought from the label:

Got that but want to know where to go next? Her 2013 album “Folie Sacrée” made our end of year list

ANDREW LILES, MANIAC and CARL STOKES
Tor Ist Das! was the first time these fine fellows ever played together as a trio – literally. So there is nothing of them as a trio but Liles has a very limited EP which features a track with Maniac and a remix of Cancer, Carl’s band. You can get it from: http://www.andrewliles.com/discography/fckwit-e-p/

Post Festival Come Down Cures – part 1: Friday

Are you feeling the post-festival back to work comedown? Join the club. However, you can keep the magic and memories alive with the music. However, pretty much all our artists only release limited editions so the chances of finding their music in your local record shop are slim. So, I thought I’d put together a handy shopping guide for you. Don’t worry if you spent all your money on Heart & Soul IPA, I’ve even got some pay what you can download releases. Please remember that its shit money being an artist so please view it as pay what you can afford not pay nothing so you can spend the money on beer instead.

THE BONGOLEEROS

For just £3 you can download their album Remedial Ecstasy off their bandcamp page:

or for free you can relive their whole set for nowt on Youtube (I filmed it!):

THE FAMILY ELAN

Matching The Stone Roses for leaving fans waiting ages for a new record, you can in the meantime get their last album on download, CD & vinyl from here:
