We've been working for what seems like FOREVER on our latest releases but they are both FINALLY HERE!
First vinyl 7" release--Holy Virgin On Fire Vs Drunken Evil Dead!
First up, our first ever VINYL release, on Sterntable Records, is available now and it looks and sounds beautiful!
"Holy Virgin On Fire Vs Drunken Evil Dead" is one of Isaac's oldest songs, and a great showcase of the Rickenbacker 12" guitar.
The B-side is "Comet Tom", our homage to David Bowie and a spiritual sequel to "Space Oddity".
You can download the music for free or order the 7" vinyl record today, or pick it up at a show!
Escape Velocity new album on CD!
Next up is our brand new third album, Escape Velocity, which is out on CD!
We've got CDs in stock and we'll have them at shows as well if you'd like to buy one!
CD/7"/Stone Roses party Sat, Mar 30 at Rockin' Tomato
On Saturday, Mar 30 at Rockin' Tomato we will be playing TWO FULL SETS to celebrate the release of Holy Virgin and Escape Velocity.
First up, we will be opening for ourselves, playing the debut album by The Stone Roses in its entirety.
The Stone Roses are a legendary band from the late 1980s Manchester music scene who combined dance, funk and rock music with jangly 60's influences to make one of the most legendary debut albums ever.
Their self-titled debut is regularly listed at or near the top of "All-time great British album" lists for good reason.
The Stone Roses reunited in 2012 for a massive worldwide tour that is still ongoing. I (Isaac) and my wife made the pilgrimage to Manchester to see them play 2 of 3 shows at Manchester's Heaton Park in front of 75,000 people a night.
Here's one of the only live TV appearances the band ever made, playing "Waterfall":
The band has been a huge influence on the sound of World Racketeering Squad and we're celebrating their legacy by covering their first album in full at our show.
Last show for bassist Hunter
Following our Stone Roses set we'll be playing a full set of WRS songs which will be the last show for our bass player Hunter. Hunter's moving out of town and we will miss him dearly!
If you know any great bass players who can improvise and hold down an incredible groove, let us know!
Sat, Mar 30 at Rockin' Tomato
- 9pm WRS as The Stone Roses
- 10pm WRS as WRS
We hope to see you there! We'll have CDs, vinyl 7" records, T-shirts, stickers and buttons available!
Isaac, Reed, Aaron, and Hunter
