Welcome to Flicknife Records
Lastwind have their new album 'High On Life' (SHARPCD19108) released on April 5th. Lastwind are the outfit from former Hawkwind member Paul Hayes, so you know these guys are the real deal! And if it’s a history lesson you’re after, why not check out Paul’s new book? "Sonic Assassin - a life". It’s a gritty, all access, no holds barred tale of Paul’s time in Hawkwind, and so much more. If that sounds like your thing, why not pick it up from the Flicknife store! The book is out March 22nd on New Haven Publishing (A name you loyal Flickers should be familiar with!) . The album is a limited edition CD and digital download, available from all good stores/sites! Now, I probably shouldn’t be telling you this... but if you’re here, it’s because you’re a loyal FLICKER... but we’re working on a special bundle, both the book and album, in one lot at a great price!
The Blue Carpet Band have been nominated in the Vive Le Rock Awards in the 'New Blood' category. If you have not seen them live, go and see them!

ELECTRIC CAKE SALAD get a 9/10 review in the new Vive Le Rock magazine #59 for new album 'Terremoto'. Go to our store to buy this fantastic new CD: it's a future classic so make sure you got your copy!!
We are very happy to announce that we have made a deal with Skull Print, a company that gives 10% of all its profits to charities. Our bands t-shirts are now available via these links:
A while back, we decided to create a new label to accommodate Wills & The Willing. This was due to the fact that their music didn’t fit with Flicknife, so we created FNG (FlickNife Group) and we are pleased to announce that our second release with the band, a track called ‘Villa’, is now at #14 in the Music Week commercial pop charts. Who says you can’t be indie and in the charts?!
Why not check out Wills & The Willing's album Dream In Colour in our store?
Mama likes to make your life easier so here's your summer sorted! Put some sunscreen on and write these dates down.
