PREORDER NOW – http://postpoprecords.bandcamp.com/album/crash
You know that situation? That situation when you are idly walking along the dusty rails of a long-forgotten Ghost Train ride, and you find a hastily ripped up love-letter that has the faint odour of Christmas Crackers, and as you read the tale of unrequited love between a girl and the concept of Love itself, you decide that from this moment, you will make it your life mission to find this girl and show her via MS Paint that she was right all along, that LOVE really does exist… and that’s when you realise; it’s you. You are the girl. You wrote this letter on a train to Hastings, to distract yourself from the job you hate and the friends that nod and the gentleman sitting next to you who is filling Sudoku squares with co-ordinates to who-knows-where, and now you are here. In the Ghost Train. Alone, but laughing in a Ghost Train. But you are happy and you know you can never leave the ghost train now, but why would you want to because all of your friends have just shown up and they are calling your name, and the guy from the train to Hastings is also here and then at last, the personification of the concept of LOVE turns up and it knows your name and when you go to give it a hug, it smells like Summer AND Cherry Coke. You know that situation? I do. That’s how I feel about releasing “CRASH” the brand new single from Menswe@r and their first for 18 years.
I will be writing a lot more about it in the next couple of months, but just wanted to give you all a heads up of that fact it is happening! The new single is released on multiple formats on May 26th and you will be able to pre-order the Ltd Edition vinyl and cassette tape on POST/POP (and Rough Trade) very very soon.
On March 26th I went to their sold out gig at The Bush Hall in London and was met with lots of posters with the POST/POP logo on (I like this. I want this to happen more often) and here it is…
There’s going to be lots of noise on the Menswe@r “comeback” and that’s fair enough. I am incredibly happy that they are releasing new music, and the new material previewed at Bush Hall is possibly the best stuff Mr Johnny Dean has ever written in my opinion. I won’t bore everyone with BRITPOP 101 save to say that Menswe@r are one of the first bands you think about when you hear that word. If you need to know anything else then use these links!
I have a feeling I’m going to be writing about Menswe@r a lot, so know that you’ll see a music video and some more gigs announced soon.
So that date again, MAY 26TH – THE NEW SINGLE “CRASH” FROM MENSWEAR. PREORDER NOW: http://postpoprecords.bandcamp.com/album/crash
