We're delighted to announce that we'll be performing at Nottingham Contemporary as part of Record Store Day on Saturday 21st April.

The show is being promoted by our comrades at Left Lion and The Music Exchange. We'll be sharing a bill with some of Nottingham's finest indie rockers in the form of FISTS and KAGOULE. And best of all, it's F to the R to the motherfucking double E.

There are more event details here. Facebook event and poster to follow, but given the current lack of poster here's a picture of a pair of baby otters:

Come along, buy a record, enjoy a cupcake, tap your feet mercilessly.

We are delighted to announce that Hello Thor will be releasing our debut EP this June.

We like the cut of Hello Thor's jib. They are fine, upstanding gentlemen; the kind of men you'd happily take home to meet your mothers. But they are not mere men of moral fibre, nor just pretty faces. No! They are also upholders of a grand Nottingham tradition, bringing yet another marvellous DIY record label to this fine city. We're delighted to be working with them, and strongly recommend you investigate some of the other winsome bands on their roster:

We Show Up On Radar
Dan  Toporowski

The EP is as yet untitled, and shall probably contain four tracks. Our somewhat rudderless ship shall be receiving some welcome steering from the capable hands of Pete Fletcher at First Love Studio. There are lots of exciting plans afoot for promo videos, launch parties, tours, remixes, etc - we'll keep you abreast of all developments as details come in!

Tomorrow, Cantaloupe will be venturing in to the Heart Of Darkness for the first time.

We're recording at Nottingham's Electric Mayhem Studio. We're only doing a one day session and we're only laying down some drum parts, but we'll still probably somehow manage to get cabin fever, have a nervous breakdown, develop a drug dependency, split up, reform again, and finish the day by finding Jesus.

The bonkers thing is that it's free. Electric Mayhem is managed by Degree students at Confetti College. And contrary to any preconceptions you might have, it's a damn professional outfit equipped with the kind of gear that can only be described as both "shit" and "hot". Hi, Neve VR 60 Mk3 Mixing Desk! Mmmmmm.

Keep your ears to the ground, as we understand that students at Confetti are often looking for artists to record.

Now here's a little video for you in honour of the original Electric Mayhem:
