HEY FLICKERS!

We're back once again, renegade masters optional, and this time we have some VERY cool annoucements for you all!

By now, I'm sure you're all aware, but for those that aren't, the great SPIZZENERGI 7" single is available in stores, digital services and let us not forget, our own store! Fingers crossed you've already heard the single, or maybe even read about it (Vive Le Rock have a four page feature on Spizzenergi in Issue #44). If you've not heard it yet, check it out soon. It's awesome and the sleeve was designed by Mr Spizz himself, so that's pretty damn cool.

Next up, another release by Flicknife Old Boys, Morgellons. Titled "Morgellons" this Post-Punk epic has shades of The Buzzcocks, and just a hint of The Undertones, while still being VERY much their own album; this is in no small part due to the great guitar work of Josh Pinto, the solid basswork of Mark Geraghty, and the oh so familair vocals of young Vincent Mahon, all pushed forward by the driving drumwork of Mannie Zerafa. So keep an eye out for that, releasing in Mid May, catalogue number SHARPCD17087.

Next, some very exciting news: We want to welcome a new act to the Flicknife Family, Wills & The Willing, with their brilliant new album "Heroes and Villains". This album is going to be huge, so make sure to get in on the ground floor, and watch out for the awesome first single "Skin" with introduction by ex Chelsea FC stars Didier Drogba and Michael Essien: Carefree!! If you're as excited for this as we are, you'll be able to get your grubby little mits of this future classic towards the end of May.

Wills and the Willing

Lastly, we are proud and excited to announce a new venture. A brand new label, RNG Productions!

RNG is the brainchild of former A-Ha Manager/Producer John Ratcliff and Flicknife/MG2MUSIC Founder/CEO Frenchy Gloder.

The aim of this label is to unearth new and exciting acts, nurturing them and raising them up to stardom, along with furthering the careers of existing and very exciting bands and artists. Each project that we pick up will eventually be licensed to a major for manufacturing, promotion and distribution. The first act likely to recieve the RNG treatment will be Wills & The Willing, so fingers crossed for that!

SO! That's the lot for now, we've got a few very exciting months coming up, and we can't wait to bring you all along for the ride. I hope you all enjoy the new releases and I hope you show RNG Productions the loyalty you've all shown Flicknife Records!

Catch you on the flipside,

Taheg Gloder

Hey Flickers!

In this blog, we're going to answer a question that we seem to be hearing FAR too often of late from bands and artists: Are digital releases inferior to physical ones?

Short answer: No.
Long answer: Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Even longer answer:
For many, many reasons digital releases are just as good as physical, and in some cases can even be better, here are our top three reasons:
