New Entry: Eyesore & The Jinx Air New Single "Accidental Weller"

Liverpool indie rock/punk/post punk band Eyesore & The Jinx have aired their new single "Accidental Weller".

The song was recorded during the band’s EP sessions with Daniel Fox from Girl Band and Matthew Freeman at Fresh Goods Studio in Birkenhead in 2019, and is out today (2nd October) via Merseyside Record Label, Eggy Records. Buy it here.

‘Accidental Weller’, is a cautionary tale about the urge for transformation in all of us. A timely reminder that you’re only ever a few snips away from a bouffant/ mullet hybrid that belongs on a Vespa with a Union Jack paint job, doing 40 mph on an A round somewhere just outside of Luton. A verbal hand on the shoulder, patting you gently, letting you know that whatever plans you have, big or small, never work out quite like you would have wanted them to, much like this pointless, little year. 

So approach that chair with caution and remember, it always looks better when it’s washed.

New Entry: Desperate Journalist Drop "The Fear" (Pulp cover)

London indie rock/indie pop/post punk/alt band  Desperate Journalist have dropped their cover version of Pulp's "The Fear".

Back in the panic-stricken spring of 2020, when the growing global pandemic ensured that the playing of gigs suddenly became as practical as the flying of pigs, fierce panda asked its newly domesticated acts to choose a favourite tune by a.n.other band with which to rockdown in lockdown. These covers would form the Covid Version Sessions, informal home recordings designed to capture the unsettling mood of the moment, and now those recordings are all seeing the digital release light of day throughout the autumn.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and doom’n’boom experts Desperate Journalist couldn’t really capture the unsettling mood of the moment much more adroitly than by flirting with a song called ‘The Fear’ and anointing it with their patented brand of bruisingly lowslung indie sass.

“We are all fans of Pulp in the band, but my personal favourite album of theirs is ‘This Is Hardcore’,” explains singer Jo. “It's where Jarvis's talent for the great observational lyric meets a cracking in his writerly facade, and the parallels between all the unusually personal angst in the songs and the death-of-the-Britpop-party cultural landscape of the UK at the time add up to a sublimely melancholic and relatable whole. It's my go-to hangover record so (as bassist Simon says) I know it like the back of my hand. Anyway our friend Kevin kept suggesting we do a cover of ‘The Fear’ every now and again and it finally made sense in April what with the entire world slowly supernovaing into oblivion around us, all shut in our houses, so we had a go, because there was nothing else to do.”

The band are currently working on new material, the follow-up to 2019's 'In Search Of The Miraculous'.
