HEY FLICKERS!

Sorry for leaving you all hangin' for so long. It's been a rough few months for all involved, and we've had our share of drama here at the Flicknife Officers. Our Glorious Leader, The Frenchie, messed up his foot and was bouncing in and out of hospital, barely able to walk for months, which slowed things down a touch. But we've got him a little scooter now, so he's back to being an absolute menace. Good Times! So, is anyone else a little disappointed that the eclipse didn't give us all magical powers? I feel a little cheated, myself. All that coverage in the media, social media frothing at the keyboard because the end times were here. Personally, I didn't it realize it WAS an eclipse. When it started getting a little dark in the afternoon, I just figured it was business as usual for the U.K... Ah well, apparently the rapture is coming, at the end of this month, so we'll see if that's any more fun. Assuming the world DOESN'T end, we've got some very fun releases coming up, see if anything here tickles your ear-box.

For those who missed it, we have an excellent new single from Redhead called 'Inside My Head' b/w 'Sun Will Rise Again' (FLSD23128). This is a track no good rocker can do without. Described as "If Guns N Roses made an album with Bon Jovi" by Rolling Stone Magazine. Redhead are a band that NEED to be heard, by anyone craving a good hit of solid ROCK. These new tracks are available NOW and can be found on 121 different digital sites, worldwide. SO if your platform of choices doesn't have it, make better choices! Choices like Inside My Head which Record Collector described as "Full of hooks, and great riffs". And, because we're just that nice, if you don't have a platform of choice, you can find one here. You know what to do!

Redhead Single

Times are hard. We all know this. Everything is more expensive, smaller, and worse quality. You know what is cheaper, bigger, and only gets better with time? Our selection on Bandcamp! And because we only want what's best for you dirty flickers, for the month of April, we're dropping our already low prices by a further 20%! TWENTY PERCENT! That's one fifth! that means, if you buy five albums from us, in April... you're basically getting one for free. I think that adds up. Don't check the maths, just pick up something epic. Your ears will thank you, as will your wallet. flickniferecords.bandcamp.com/music

BC Friday

And speaking of EPIC. Did you know, a very special anniversary is coming up? Yup, that's right, this April it'll be the 40th anniversary of the release of The Karate Kid! Wax on, you crazy diamonds.

Oh. Wait...

I'm being told that's not the one I'm meant to talk about.

It turns out, this April is ALSO the ten year anniversary of our collaboration with Flicknife Mainstays, and all round great people ELECTRIC CAKE SALAD ! They're the best around, no one's ever going to keep them down. To celebrate, we're releasing something a little bit special: 'The Tenth Anniversary Logbook' (FLAN24001). A very special package, with an extremely limited run, each edition contains a CD, a poster and a beautiful, numbered card, designed by Stevo Diavolo-Jonesy himself, and the whole thing will drop in your laps, in a see-through wallet.

The CD features five classic tracks:

  1. Everything (Original)
  2. Baby Firefly
  3. Everything (Dan Thomas progressive mix)
  4. Dimenticato
  5. Everything (Dan Thomas radio edit)

ECS 10th Anniversary

Be quick, though! Only 100 will ever me made, so make sure to get your pre-orders in NOW!. There's no set release date, but we'll let you know through the usual channels, as soon as we've ironed out the creases and set a launch schedule!

For a belly full of Electric Cake Salad, you can catch them LIVE at any of the gigs listed below.

18th May – Mascara Bar, London (with Cryogenica)

31st May/1st June – Alice's Wicked Tea Party, Dorset

5th-6th July – Tannerfest, Northampton

5th September – On Board The Craft, Stoke Prior

And that's all there is for this blog, folks. I hope it was worth the wait, and while I'd love to say the wait will be shorter for the next one, we all know there's a good chance it won't be. Life is pretty hectic right now, for us all, and there are a few major events coming up which could well spell doom for our species. But, as always, our advice remains the same: No matter what terrors and tribulations life throws at us, we can always pull through as long as we stick together. Don't let the silly little differences distract us from the silly big similarities, and remember that we're all just balls of wrinkly jelly, piloting skeletons on a rock, hurtling through space. Life is already absurd, so there's no need to make it harder by being a dick.

Until next time,

Catch you on the flipside!

Taheg, and the Flicknife Kru.
