Real Farmer

Compare What’s There

    Real Farmer’s debut album, Compare What’s There, is released 8th March 2024. As active members of the vibrant local music scene of Groningen in The Netherlands with their wonderfully infectious punk noise, concocting fast paced, driving songs with wiry riffs, propelling drums, and winding melodies. Each track stands on its own, both expressing a nostalgia for a different time and reflecting the time and place the songs were written in, showing the multifaceted personalities that make up Real Farmer. Real Farmer will be playing six shows for Independent Venue Week in January and February on the ‘Triple Dutch Tour’ with fellow Dutch up-and-comers Personal Trainer (including members of Real Farmer) and The Klittens. In March the band are on the road again supporting Bull in Brighton along with five headline shows

    Pregoblin

    Pregoblin II

      PREGOBLIN II is a strange name for a debut album. For the artist who created it, Alex Sebley aka PREGOBLIN, its astonishingly heartfelt and brilliantly catchy assemblage of songs is the culmination of a tortuous genesis period. Its release finally, he hopes, will usher in a fresh, more positive chapter for him, a sequel to all the misery and bullshit up to this point – hence the title. The creative journey to this point has been labyrinthine and frequently painful. As far back as the early ’10s, Sebley was registering his embryonic talent alongside Lias and Nathan Saoudi in The Saudis, the chaotic pre-Fat White Family ensemble where he played guitar and co-authored raw, post-punk material including FWF’s breakthrough tune ‘Touch The Leather’. PREGOBLIN receive a healthy 50,000 plays a month on Spotify. Previous singles include: Combustion which to date has amassed 2.2M streams and was dubbed ‘Single of the year’ last year in The Quietus. Other PREGOBLIN songs include Anna (flowers Won’t Grow), Love Letters, Snakes & Oranges and Wimpy & Wimpy Love with the Pop Group. “PREGOBLIN II’s genre-straddling dexterity and melodic riches mark it out as a loser classic fit to rank alongside Beck and Daniel Johnston. The tunes are memorable and the execution’s forward-facing and inspired”

      Trampolene

      Swansea To Hornsey - Anniversary Edition

        Due to unprecedented demand TRAMPOLENE (the Welsh group, not the bouncy thing spelled with an ‘i’!) will re-release their classic debut album ‘Swansea To Hornsey’ (Anniversary Edition)  through Strap Originals.

        On the same day singer, guitar slinger and lead Tramp, Jack Jones, will publish his first novel, also entitled ‘Swansea To Hornsey’. Says Jack Jones: “The album and the book is ‘Swansea To Hornsey’ as it should have been. We couldn’t find anyone to publish the book the first time round. I always wanted to give fans the ultimate experience of listening to the album & reading my book. I was gob smacked when Peter (Doherty) said he loved the book so much he was gonna start a publishing company and put my book into the world…not something you hear every day. We edited it together as we drove across Europe…getting to know each other even deeper. It was a magical time, and now this all feels like a surreal dream. The album has been going for silly money on eBay & fans are always asking for it to be re-pressed…so we thought f**k it, let’s make it happen.”

        Andrew Cushin

        Waiting For The Rain

          Pre-order the album and receive a free poncho.

          23-year-old singer-songwriter Andrew Cushin is Newcastle’s fastest rising star. He has already recorded with Noel Gallagher and counts Paul Weller and Sam Fender among his biggest cheerleaders.

          Andrew grew up on a council estate in Heaton, Newcastle. His songs, delivered in a gorgeous baritone that sounds way beyond his years, are full of his experiences growing up, his lust for life, his grief at the loss of loved ones, his hopes and fears, his love and his stoicism.

          Andrew Cushin released his debut single It’s Gonna Get Better (2020) followed by Waiting For The Rain (2020); ’Where’s My Family Gone’ (2021) featuring production and guitar from Noel Gallagher and in 2022, through Peter Doherty’s Strap Originals label, You Don’t Belong EP and double A Side single You’ll Be Free / Dream For A Moment.

          “Cushin recalls acoustic Noel Gallagher circa Morning Glory.” – Sunday Times Culture.

          “The kitchen-sink realism of his songs, raised on the concrete turfs of council estates and smokefilled social clubs of Newcastle, is something the chart-topping Toms, Jacks and Georges of guitarpop are not only desperately lacking, but entirely unaware of.” - The Line of Best Fit.

          Vona Vella

          Vona Vella

            Leicestershire’s answer to Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, Vona Vella (Izzy Davis and Dan Cunningham) release their eponymously titled debut album, through Strap Originals on Friday 28th July. ‘Vona Vella’ was recorded at The Libertines’ Albion Rooms studio in Margate and produced by Jason Stafford (Jamie T, Sports Team, The Libertines) and Vona Vella.

            The Indies only Blue vinyl also has an exclusive Night Time Cover. All twelve tracks on the album were co-written by the duo: Dan playing the guitar and piano, with Izzy on guitar and flute… and joined by Jake Bott on drums. Having toured last year supporting the Libertines, Tim Burgess and Morcheeba and last month Peter Doherty, Vona Vella performed at The Great Escape in Brighton along with a headline show in London and an appearance at Dot2Dot Festival in May and supported Reverend & The Makers in Bristol on June 11th at Dareshack. Further headline shows and festival appearances will be announced shortly.

            Vona Vella comprises twenty-one-year-old singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Izzy Davis and Dan Cunningham. The band officially formed in Autumn 2020, after Ross Godfrey from the band Morcheeba heard their (then-unreleased) single ‘Sun’ and decided to remix it. Once released it proved an instant viral hit, racking up over 1 million streams. Vona Vella released their debut EP ‘Go Outside Forever,’ in early 2022, which was given a glowing review by none other than Paul Heaton and in January of this year a remix of the title track from the EP, ’Go Outside Forever,’ was featured in the hugely successful NBA2K23 video game.

            ‘Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres’ was recorded live to beautifully capture the essence and spirit of the Puta Madres at a family home overlooking a fishing village in Étretat Normandy, over 4 days last summer and mixed at Urchin Studios (East London). The album is engineered by Dan Cox (Laura Marling, Thurston Moore, Florence & The Machine)and produced by Jai Stanley (long time friend and manager).

            ‘Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres’ is a devastatingly intimate portrait of love, loss, being lost, happiness, tragedy, addiction and the power of the human soul to transcend its darker levels. All the songs from the album were road tested over the last 18 months across Europe at Festivals and headline shows.

            Songs include the reflective ‘All At Sea,’ the raw ‘Punk Buck Bonafide,’ the upbeat and playful ‘Shoreleave,’ the joyous hymn of liberation ‘Paradise Is Under Your Nose,’ ‘Someone Else To Be’ Peter’s re-imagining of the Velvet Underground’s ‘Ride Into The Sun’ and Oasis’ ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger and ‘Who’s Been Having You Over’ with dialogue from the 1948 film adaption of Graham Greene ‘Brighton Rock’ and the cheeky poke at his own notoriety,“You’re so rock’n’roll.”
