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:
