Clone Quartet: Clone Quartet - 'Carousel' Out Now
posted 28 May 2007

Belfast's greatest new musical sensations Clone Quartet drop their debut single today. 'Carousel' / 'Played To Death' is available on two limited edition formats (CD and 7" vinyl), each featuring special card sleeves built by the band themselves.

Both formats are limited to a run of 500 copies apiece and have been selling like the delicious proverbial hotcakes they are. Click on the 'Shop' link on our website for full details. Here's just a small fraction of the praise those lovely press bods have been spouting their way:

"If Arcade Fire actually got around to writing a song with hooks and pop melody... they would have a hard time competing with Clone Quartet." - ARTROCKER

"Reason enough to rhyme foursome with awesome." - BBC ATL

"A stomping beat that almost buzzes under the weight of its angry tension… Bring the (highly-tuneful, electro) noise!" - 8/10 - DROWNED IN SOUND

"A swirling, fantastical whirlpool of electronica that nimbly lifts the spirits and encourages a skip in any would be listener." - MUSIC-NEWS.COM

The band will be back in mainland UK for a full week tour beginning on the 30th June. Full details to be announced soon. Their debut album 'Well-Oiled Machine' is scheduled for release on 6th August through Tigertrap/Smalltown America and really is beyond fantastic.

Wojtek Godzisz: Burning Ideals in the shops today!
posted 29 Apr 2007

Yes, it has been an excruciatingly long wait, but the debut EP from the former Symposium bearded wonder finally hits the shops today!

'Burning Ideals' features six original tracks plus the video for the title track and comes in a deliciously over-indulgent cardboard cutout sleeve, which opens up in a very unusual and exciting way. We're pretty darn sure there isn't anything in the world quite like it.

It'll be available in all good independent retailers around the UK as well as the majority of big chain stores. Remember, if your record emporium isn't stocking it, feel free to be politely indignant and get them to order one in. Here are the stats:

1. Burning Ideals
2. I Will Give You Nothing
3. Sun Is Up
4. Jealous Heart
5. 22 And Beautiful
6. Light Over Dark Earth
7. Burning Ideals (video)

Also, there's only 1,000 of them in existence, so don't wait too long.
