Role Models Autism charity single on sale NOW!

I’m really happy to announce the release of my band, Role Models new single – This Eventually Leads Nowhere. We’re realeasing this on behalf of the Haringey Autism and the National Autistic Society with every penny going to help them continue to run their safe play day for families with autistic children in the local area. It’s a truly important initiative, and one which allows the kids and parents alike to feel safe, relaxed and supported. Some of you will be aware it’s a cause which is really close to our hearts. Thank you so much to everyone who gave their time to make this happen (Andy Brook Chris Almeida Dave Kerr Michl Krenner and of course James Sullivan Daniel Husayn and Phil Smith) PLEASE download this song for just £2, or the EP for £5 and share this video. Thank you in advance and hope you enjoy!

 

“Good Mornin’ everybody! Ya know how I usually give the ol’ “Rich Rags Story Time”? Well here’s an important one.

When my son Zoli was diagnosed with autism I felt helpless. It was something I knew very little about, so I thought the worst. I tried to keep a brave face. And that exhausted me. So worried about him. As I worried and tried to learn about it, Zoli was growing to be an emotional, quite happy child. Who barely spoke. That inability to communicate his thoughts would send the lil’ guy into some serious spins of REAL frustration.

As Zoli began to communicate more and more, we would see that, though he may sometimes have a difficult time with how to describe his emotions, he definitely feels them. When he tells me he loves me and holds my gaze, my heart explodes. It’s a big emotion. Harder to say than the opposite. For most of us I think. I’m so proud that he’s come to grasps with it. That worry melts away a bit…

I wrote this song for and with my son. And this charity is very close to our hearts, as it is something that we are involved with and frequent. As does many, many other families. That little meatball LOVES it! Hahahahahahaha!

Hope ya like the song! Lot’s of very talented people such as Andy Brook,Daniel HusaynDave KerrRich Jones Chris AlmeidaPhil Smith and James Sullivan helped make it happen. Click the link below and pick one up! You can also get our ep there. All the money goes to the charity! And ya know what? We’re pretty good hahahahahahaha!

We are selling the single in our SHOP from today, but be quick because we only have a few limited copies! If you are not aware of VOODOO RHYTHM RECORDS check them out now!!! “

“BRITISH MOD PUNK AT ITS BEST, YOUNG SNOTTY POWERFULL AND WILD, TWO SIDES 45RPM AND A FULL KICK IN THE FACE.

Thee Spivs were formed in Hackney, East London in 2007 by founding members Ben Edge and Steve Coley. Originally playing as a duo, they took influences from the Cramps, The scientists, 70’s punk and classic rock & roll trash from the 50’s and 60’s. Since then the band has taken on a bass player and crafted themselves into a tight rhythm and punk trio, playing their raucous crazy shows all over the world! The first releases where in 2009, thats the time i meet them fort he first time and we become friends, the release all their stuff trou damaged goods up in England, That Single is a One Time only for Voodoo Rhythm they went to Gizzard Studios ( mudhoney, mungo jerry, billy childish, delaney davidson) to record 2 brand new titles for voodoo rhythm records,.. A-side bullet train is completly fist in the face 77 punk rock and Flip side crawls back at you with a psychotic trance punk rhythm !!!”

Mastered here and out now on Zandor records Zan 12 : Dry Heaves “Medicated Youth” 7″

“Follow up to their self released demo tape and “Loose Tongues” 7″ this band from Sheffield, Yorkshire is getting better all the time and i think this release captures the feeling of their brilliant live performances a little more. I can always hear elements of Germs, Angry Samoans and Black Flag in their sound. Other people have compared them to Adolescents and Descendents, anyway you get the idea – killer, catchy, hardcore punk! My personal favourite track is “Graft” it’s about working to live not living to work.

Keeping the same aesthetic as the first record with the Pogger artwork this one is 5 tracks recorded by Atko (Voorhees, The Horror, Gentlemens Pistols) and mastered by Daniel Husayn (Red Dons, Thee Spivs) limited to 300 copies on green vinyl.

£3.50 + postage (get in touch for rates)
3 copies or more gets you wholesale rates
Distros / Labels get in touch!”

 

Live Saturday 1st of December!

THEE SPIVS – FLICKIN V’S

Latest single by Thee Spivs taken from their recent ‘Black And White Memories’ album with an exclusive B-side, a cover of Patrick Fitzgerald’s “Safety Pin Stuck In My Heart”. Lovingly pressed on traditional black vinyl.

LIMITED TO 500 COPIES!

Both tracks were recorded at Gizzard studios with Ed Deegan at the controls.
The band have had successful jaunts to Europe earlier this year and are heading back again in July for more! On top of this they’re also making their debut appearance at the famous Rebellion Punk Festival in Blackpool in early August, more details to follow.
Thee Spivs are Ben Edge (Guit/Vox), Steve Coley (drums) and new bassist Daniel Husayn (who you may know from The Red Dons)
Flickin V’s is already a live favourite and is set to become an anthem for disaffected youth worldwide. The cover features Ben’s uncle, who you may have heard about on their first album. He’s the one with ASBO. We can’t think why!”
