Finally. IMPORTANT INFO - FREE and at family friendly time

Constant Light ring in the new (financial) year with the launch of their second album, a scant, erm, nine years later. ‘Approach’ is “a bunch of lovely quirky pop songs… in the tradition of early Depeche Mode, Andreas Dorau and Silicon Teens; well, perhaps not as silly as the latter… This is perfect pop music” (Vital Weekly issue 1183).

When not interfering in elections Ekranoplans (Экранопланы) are making a racket like this, according to music critic Michael Helms: “Like some sort of refurbished dirty power station in Kazakhstan ready to reap in the profit the Ekranoplans burst onto the scene last night to rock the Yarra. With lead ranter Simon Strong whirling dervishly, Master G Goldberg pushing pedal power to the fore and the rhythm section sounding like they’d just stepped off the stage of the Howard Stein Music Academy circa 1973 this bunch of hard rocking psychedelic Soviet sympathisers demand your attention…”

Веселье! Отлично! Вечеринка!! Let’s get Fiscal!

I know we said this would be an L-for-Long P-for-Playing Vinyl Record but after queuing for half a year to get our little ditties into an overseas recording plant we were kindly told our money was not good enough, naturally after having booked this launch. Seems like there is a far higher demand for picture discs with Adele's head on them, Beatles re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-issues and an eight and three-quarter inch wax of Jack 'Zorro on doughnuts' White playing a guitar made out of Albanian goats cheese sandwich. Thanks record store day! So now you can purchase an ethical locally-made cassette instead because we really needed something with two sides. An objet d'art that fits in your pocket! sortof.
