Join us at Night & Day on Friday 26 Nov (time TBC) for the launch party to celebrate the release of their double A side 7" - Yard Sale / The Signalman, with special guests Splint.
Blanketman release this obscenely limited 45 to celebrate Night & Day turning 30 this November. Just one copy for everyone who can fit into a capacity Night & Day and available exclusively from us.
Written during the post-lockdown slump, Yard Sale depicts the strange encounter between a young couple and the mysterious homeowner in the short story “Why Don’t You Dance?” by Raymond Carver. Why is all his furniture out on the front lawn? What is he planning? Why does everyone end up dancing? This song doesn’t answer any of these questions.
An introspective look into the day to day of guitarist Dan, inspired by the 1976 BBC television adaptation of Charles Dickens' The Signal-Man. A merging of stories real and fictional, but both equally frightening.
****PLEASE NOTE: NOTHING WILL BE POSTED OUT FOR THIS RELEASE. NAMES WILL BE ON THE DOOR ON THE NIGHT.****
****Here's a quick update from Blanketman about tonights show:
"So, we have received word that our exclusive 7" is so exclusive, that the factory won’t let us have any in time for tonight. An exclusive 7" launch night you say with no exclusive 7", what kind of sick joke is this? No worries though, because we will be handing out IOUs on the door that will be even more exclusive than the record because I can’t be bothered to write out 250. All joviality aside, we are very sorry about this and disappointed ourselves, seems like everyone is feeling the sting from the vinyl shitshow. That being said, it is still Night and Day’s 30th birthday week, they are still under threat of closure, and we are STILL A ROCK BAND. Therefore, we will see you all tomorrow to make lots of noise. If you have purchased a ticket and record bundle, thank you so much, your name will be on the door, and we will make sure you are united with your record ASAP. Please be kind to us, we have so much to give (just not an exclusive 7 at this time). Thank you."
So, come along and enjoy the gig and we'll drop you an email as soon as the 7" lands and you'll be able to come and pick it up from the shop whenever you're ready.****
