Domino will release the 40th anniversary of the release of Buzzcocks’ groundbreaking ‘Spiral Scratch’ EP with its reissue and ‘Time’s Up’, the 1976 demos recorded with founder & singer Howard Devoto and originally released as a bootleg. 

Featuring the original line-up of Howard Devoto (vocals & songwriter), Pete Shelley (guitar & songwriter), Steve Diggle (bass guitar) and John Maher (drums), ‘Time’s Up’ was recorded at Revolution Studios, Bramhall Lane Stockport on the 18th of October 1976. The session, recording Buzzcocks’ live set at the time, cost £45 and was engineered by Andy MacPherson. 

In December of the same year, the band recorded the four track ‘Spiral Scratch’ EP with a minimum of fuss in ‘downtime’ at Indigo Studios, with Martin Hannett (then going under the pseudonym of Martin Zero) producing.  The band inexplicably took it upon themselves to release the EP themselves, somehow finding the monies necessary to press up 1000 copied on 7” vinyl, on their own New Hormones label.  The EP sold for £1 a copy. Within days of the initial release, with typical punk chaos and sweet disregard for any cohesive business strategy, Howard Devoto revealed that he was quitting the band.  The ‘Spiral Scratch’ EP quickly sold out its initial 1000 pressing, went on to sell 16,000 copies over the next six months and is now recognised as one of, if not the, most important records of the punk explosion – the first self-released record of its time, with the band responsible for everything, from sleeve design to distribution.

Watch ‘Breakdown’, filmed at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall shows in 1976 - watch ABOVE.

NEW SIGNING - PROTOMARTYR 'RELATIVES IN DESCENT' OUT 29TH SEPTEMBER 2017

DOMINO ALL-IN
Protomartyr 'Relatives in Descent'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


Anxiety about the precarious nature of reality is a recurring thread on Protomartyr's 4th full-length and Domino debut, Relatives In Descent out September 29th. Though not a concept album, it presents twelve variations on a theme: the unknowable nature of truth, and the existential dread that often accompanies that unknowing. It's no coincidence this missive comes to us at a moment when disinformation and garbled newspeak have become a daily reality.  'Relatives In Descent' offers new layers and new insights, without sanding any of the edges born from their days as a Detroit bar band.

It all begins with ‘A Private Understanding,’ pegged as the album's opening statement the second it was finished, and a wellspring from which the following eleven songs flow. At once beautiful and brutal, it mutates from drum-led oddity to unlikely anthem, with some of Casey’s most potent lyrical work at its centre.

Watch the video for 'A Private Understanding' above.

WATCHING LITTLE CUB 'BREATHING SPACE' MUSIC VIDEO (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Little Cub 'Breathing Space'

Following the acclaim of their debut album Still Life, south London trio Little Cub have shared the video for stand-out track, ‘Breathing Space’. Watch above.

“’Breathing Space’ is a song about the negative spaces in a relationship and people and things that come in to fill those gaps. Don Paterson once said it's easier to traverse the distance of space than to bridge the distance between one person's mind and yours and here the central question is one of fidelity. That if someone keeps you at arms length for long enough at what point does so much come between you that the ties simply come undone.”

On release of their new music video, Little Cub have announced their Autumn UK tour dates

THOMAS RAGSDALE - ELECTRONIC

COMPOSERS

Yorkshire based composer Thomas Ragsdale melds cinematic electronica with immersive soundscapes and blissful techno workouts.

Spending his formative years composing a varied catalogue of music for TV, film and advertising companies, his gradual shift into the world of performing music is one that's quickly won acclaim from the likes of Resident Advisor and FACT. His music has been featured with great effect in two groundbreaking BBC documentaries by Adam Curtis including the acclaimed 'HyperNormalisation', where his track 'Warning Mass' was featured extensively alongside the likes of Brian Eno, Burial and Aphex Twin. His music has also found its way onto commercials by BMW, Prada and Twitter.

Having composed and released soundtracks for feature films premiering at Film4's prestigious FrightFest and EPs with lavish packaging backed with personally intimate subject matters, Thomas' music evokes spacious resonance and emotional response. Thomas so far shared stages on tours and supports with a diverse array of musicians, such as Tropic Of Cancer, Daniel Lanois, Esben & The Witch, Einstürzende Neubauten and Kara-Lis Coverdale.

Supporters of his music include heavyweights Daniel Avery, Solomun and Baikal to name but a few and his DJ sets are focused on rhythm and emotion, with an emphasis on immersing audiences within a deep spacious atmosphere. He also hosts the monthly radio show Soundtracking The Void on Bloop London Radio, playing a mix of sounds across the board from experimental electronica to minimalist classical.
