FIRST RELEASE FOR NEW RS OFFSHOOT LABEL SWAP MEAT

The first release on my new offshoot label SWAP MEAT is nearly ready. It's a cassette only release from our old muckers MAINLINER. 'Live In London Twenty Thirteen' is a 60 minute recording taken from the bands Corsica Studios gig last September. Mixed by Makoto from three separate source recordings, it's a little gem. It's still fairly rough n ready, so don't expect Frampton Comes Alive sound quality ... I hope to be posting them out before the end of the month and pre orders are bing taken now. The tape costs £6 plus postage and is available on either orange or green cassettes. It's a limited one off run of 80 numbered copies.

EARTHLING SOCIETY 'ENGLAND HAVE MY BONES'

The next Riot Season release of the year will be Earthling Society's new album 'England Have My Bones'. Sadly due to the Record Store Day generated vinyl pressing delays, we'll probably looking at a mid to late June release date now. The album features four songs, including a majestic cover of Alice Coltrane's 'Journey In Satchidananda' and is a bit of a musical departure for the label i guess.

It's a lot less noisy/in your face than recent releases, it has more of a psych/space rock feel. I think the Acid Mothers fans will certainly love it. The album will be available on vinyl and download. I may knock out a few tapes too. More news as and when

You can listen to 'Journey In Satchidananda' here

The album will be available on vinyl (REPOSELP040) and digitally. No CD release is planned at the moment. Pre-Order details will be announced early May via the RS mailing list (sign up link above)

Release Info:

HENRY BLACKER are a rock band, a three piece, two from the group HEY COLOSSUS and a brother on the drums. These are the times they thought, let’s: WHOOP AND A HOLLER. Recorded August 2013 for £450 by Westminster Brown (Tim Cedar, Part Chimp) at the legendary Dropout studios, South London whilst a man from Torche watched on.

"Finally England provides a credible power trio. Fans of 70's heavy boogie will love it, but it'll also appeal to folk that dig Clint Foetus, Rapeman, Kyuss, Uncle Acid, Melvins, QOTSA/Desert Sessions. One of the (many) things I like about Hey Colossus (with whom Henry Blacker share two members) is their unrepentant Rockist streak, and boy is that made manifest on this offshoot. The album starts with a riff that would sit quite happily on 'Grand Funk', 'Blues for the Red Sun' or ZZ's classic 'Deguello', but within seconds the Henry Blacker English Power-Boogie identity is patented. Some of the vocals treatments are classic Billy Gibbons (the Manic Mechanic sprang to mind) meets early QOTSA era Josh Homme. Available on vinyl and a limited run cassette from Riot Season, the cassette is strangely appropriate because these eight musings on aging, power, and failure are driving music. This is the album that the maniac in the monster truck is playing as he triesto mow you down in a 70's drive-in movie. It's the album Kowalski is playing to keep his drug and fatigue-addled mind alive as he heads for the Vanishing Point.” (Toby Mearing)

DETHSCALATOR SPLIT!

It's with a sad heart that i have to report our old chums Dethscalator have decided to call it a day. I'm not sure of the exact reasons but i think it's amicable. Such a crying shame that after finally getting their debut album released (Racial Golf Course No Bitches) and it gaining such acclaim from all quarters. A GREAT band and a great bunch of lads. Gutted.

Hopefully the lads will continue to make music. I'll pass on any news of new developments as soon (or if) i get any. RIP
