COLOUR RIDE 2008
we were born this year. the first months of life have been pretty good. we did these shows:
17/6/08 eyes + team brick + pseudo nippon + skitanja
2/8/08 - dj scotch egg + pseudo nippon + the rebel + chops + part wild horses mane on both sides + chora + bromancer&bbblood + helhesten + please + sly & the family drone
8/9/08 puttin' on the ritz + cleckhuddersfax + haunted fucking
16/10/08 action beat + defibrillators
29/10/08 astral social club + kylie minoise + family battle snake
20/11/08 bbblood + cementimental + sloppy seconds + tracey phlegmin
28/11/08 zaimph + bridget hayden + library tapes
18/12/08 barbarians + stool man + keybore + wintermute +f.m.g.
highlights are difficult to pinpoint but sets from zaimph/kylie minoise/action beat stand out in particular, with the all-dayer being an overall highlight. it's all a highlight really.
we also did our first releases. we're still working out how to do things but are really pleased with these:
pseudo nippon floppy disc
yoko, oh no! floppy disc
sloppy seconds cdr
all are still available, email me at paperhead at gmail dot com. releases from j.collin/bbblood/sparkling wide pressure/sarah's charity imminent.
