XRAY004: Mickey Gloss

Hello strangers! It's time to introduce the latest band to join the fold and commit their music to flexi disc, MICKEY GLOSS. Their single ‘Crocodile Smile’ is available from the X-Ray Recordings online store from Monday July 9th (because lead times are boring) and in most independent record stores from July 16th.

MICKEY GLOSS is a Psychedelic Punk Party Band that started in Australia and ended up in London. The three piece combines masochistic guitar slabs, eerie keyboard swarms, bombastic drumming, transient fairy tales and savant bass minimalism to create beautiful static lullabies.

Side A and B of their flexi disc, ‘Crocodile Smile’ and ‘Little White Lies’, illustrates their ability to find the truth within pop, by proving what all good pop songs must: that there is a better world than the one presented. MICKEY GLOSS qualifies the statement that the pop they make will be influenced by the endless complexity of imagination and not a prescribed image of manufactured consent.

Here's the 'Crocodile Smile' video...

You can pre-order the 7” flexi disc for a mere £3 here:

XRAY002... AT LAST!!

After surprising ourselves and everyone else with the very successful release of XRAY001 (Trogons’ flexidisc single ‘Contina’), X-Ray Recordings are excited to finally announce our second release (ok, we had a false start on this one, but we’re serious now ok?). Casting our eyes across the pond, XRAY002 is with Atlanta riot grrrls The Coathangers. It's a limited edition hand numbered transparent flexidisc featuring tracks 'Hurricane' and 'Johnny' and is out on October 24th. It'll look a little something like this...

The Coathangers new album ‘Larceny & Old Lace’ was released back in June through the excellent Suicide Squeeze and floored us with its energy and attitude. Swinging frantically from ferocious to saccharine sweet, all the while showing an uncanny flair for writing thoroughly addictive hooks, The Coathangers do girl punk with more panache, style and humour than any of their peers. And it’s exactly that which has led us to commit two of our favourite tracks from the record to floppy plastic for your pleasure.

The gloriously gritty a-side ‘Hurricane’ will not fail to have you air drumming at your desk and is accompanied by this rather awesome video:

Trogons flexidisc in NME!

With XRAY001 very close to sold out now, we've decided we quite like this label-running lark. The Trogons flexidisc seems to have gone down rather well, so thank you to everyone who has helped us make it happen, to those who bought a copy, and of course to Trogons for being our guinea pigs!

Before we move on to XRAY002, here's a scan from NME. Woop!
