The Death Set

The Death Set live for us:

PGTV is here.

So The Death Set played our new Pure Groove Live night last night, and while their Marmite beats might annoy as many as they please, you can’t argue with the sheer frenetic passion that they bring to the party. And anyway, if you don’t like ‘em you need to take your hands out your pockets and get involved! The band layers amphetimene-punk, Gameboy bleeps and massive pop melodies with lashings of booty shaking samples, and their already sizeable fanbase were more than happy to lose the plot completely to it down the front....

We got the band to sign copies of their amazing album for you! Yay! COMPETITION TIME – wanna win a signed CD? Well on the band’s myspace - they have a pic of them tickling a baby polar bear. So email with the animal you’d most like to tickle and why. Best answers win an album and shedloads of other stuff. We mean loads and loads.

Not so mental was the Blood Red Shoes instore as er… it didn’t happen. Due to technical hitches at their gig, they couldn’t make it in time so apologies for that. But the band have signed a pile of copies of their fab new album for us – which we’ll have next week. We’ve sold about half of them already so if you want a copy of the record with the pair’s doodlings all over it – then get on it buster.

We ordered in some copies of the debut album from Elle Milano. They got in on the exclusive vibe for us – doing a mixtape of some real groovy bits. Did we say groovy? Shit. Sorry about that. To carry on this imaginary game of freebie poker, we upped the stakes by adding in a free copy of their debut single on 10”. Swearing For Art Students it is called and mighty nice it looks too. They then baked us a cake which we ate rapidly. Well, they didn’t actually so if you’re reading this guys – we’re HUNGRY!

Oh and if you want one of these White Stripes doing Spanish 7s, you should also move fast as we’re down to the last few copies… Oh and Justice have two things out this week – the mega DVNO remixes are out and they ‘executive produce’ the new Midfield General single Disco Sirens. It sounds pretty much like a Justice track, all whompy compressed bass and the lass from the Bumblebeez screeching away. Whompy – a fine word that we’ve just invented.

Well you might well have heard but we’re moving shop in June to Farringdon – to here to be precise.

We’ll be detailing more about this amazingly exciting music/arts/live space in the coming month but part of the move involves closing our Archway shop down. This will happen on April 30th with special events to mark the sad day in the coming weeks.
