NO CARS // YOKO GOES TO BOLLYWOOD – CASSETTE ALBUM OUT NOW!

 

I’ve released a few tapes for NO CARS and seen their evolution from a novelty pop band, to a fully-fledged juggernaut of originality and FUN. This is the third album POST/POP has released for NO CARS and it’s the best by far. A concept album where the concept is ” Japanese Girls Do Bollywood” is so far deep into the rabbit-hole, we may never see the light of day.

‘Yoko Does Bollywood’ continues the No Cars tradition of name checking as many foodstuffs as possible until the actual product has no meaning and all you know about ‘Curry’ is what lead singer Haruna tells you. I originally believed Curry to be a nice menu option, preferably as hot as possible, but now I know it to be integral to a dance routine and cultural confusion.

They are just the best live band in london, and this single is the best translation of that energy onto a rectangle possible.

In other exciting news, I also directed the music video… and WHAT A VIDEO! The premise is “what would happen if NO CARS starred in a Japanese Karaoke video in the 1980s, but then a spaceship landed and an alien Raccoon tried to steal their CRESS, but then they developed psycho-kinetic powers from eating too much cress, and fought the Raccoon to the death?” This is the sexy result.

This cassette comes in a delightfully green shell, the real colour of the cress found in the forest of Japan + you will get a REAL packet of Cress with it! Yes, you too can now grow your own cress, in the comfort of your own home OR office! You can watch your cress grow while listening to No Cars serenade you with their song ‘CRESS’.

If you can make it to london tonight (September 4th), NO CARS are playing a free gig at the South Bank Centre and if you go, not only can you buy the tape, but you also get to see me! Also HETTIE will be there too so you can high-five her and then go buy her EP!

Please note: If you listen to the song so much, you actually do get “hooked on my cress”, please do not blame POST/POP. Cress consumption should not be taken lightly and may lead to Salad abuse.

ness // A Second To Think EP – Out June 15th!

What I have in my hand right now is a plastic rectangle. Inside this plastic rectangle is magnetic tape. Recorded onto that tape is an EP of music so genuine, it should come with a certificate of authenticity. The fact I can hold the “A Second to Think” EP from New York duo NESS in my hand, is somewhat akin to that of Thor, grasping Mjolnir. The humble cassette tape is almost as mythical as a Marvel’s favourite deus ex machina, and by all contemporary thinking, shouldnt really exist. Not anymore anyway. Yet here I am, In the summer of 2015, holding this ness cassette tape aloft, watching the light bounce off the transparent shell and make patterns on the carpet that shouldnt exist pass the mid-90s. But it does. One of the best new bands in the world (in my opinion), can only sound better when played on this format. I’m fantastically biased of course, but buy the tape and prove me wrong!
