We’re delighted to announce a split LP with our Canadian pals The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol, featuring a side-long track from each band.

Our piece Lunar Mansions was recorded at the tail-end of 2019, completed in the early stages of the first Covid lockdown and premiered on The Dark Outside‘s internet lockdown special in April 2020; while the Symbol were recorded live in rural Richmond, Ontario earlier this year with an expanded 9-piece line-up.

The vinyl pressing has sold out on pre-orders this side of the pond, so there may be a second batch in the works very soon – watch this space or follow Cardinal Fuzz for updates. In North America, check at Feeding Tube Records for any remaining stock. There are also a few CDs in Sam Giles vinyl-replica sleeves available from Cardinal Fuzz.

On the subject of selling out, we are down to the last copy of Live In Belper, and this is a signed copy with the inimitable squiggles of Adam, Chris, Brett and Jack on the front cover.

We Love You Junzo

Posted in On The Web, Recording on 22/06/2022 by chrish

We’ve contributed a track to this compilation raising money for Junzo Suzuki:

Junzo has touched many people’s lives on the underground/psych scene, and collaborated with artists such as Mike Vest and Snakes Don’t Belong In Alaska. Earlier this year he suffered a serious brain injury after falling from a rail platform in Tokyo and is currently in a rehabilitation hospital, unable to play live and also without the wherewithal to access his recording revenues. His friends Tabata Mitsuru & Ned Netherwood have set up the ‘Friends of Junzo‘ Bandcamp page to help support him and organised this compilation, running to 27 tracks and nearly 4½ hours of audio. The asking price of ¥1,300 is just under £8. Full track list and details here.
