Boss-pop band goFASTER>> have released their new single "Flammable Leisurewear" on Alcopop records - what a perfect combination! It feels like I've achieved something, even though I had chuff all to do with this momentous occasion.
The release is a very special (limited to 500 copies) pressing of a 7" vinyl, the first 100 of which are graced by a hand-crafted tracksuit sleeve and a CD featuring a digital copy of the tracks. The artwork for the release is in the style of a matchbox, designed by Paul Rafferty of Hot Club de Paris, complete with coarse striking surface - so if one had a match, you could actually burn Flammable Leisurewear yourself whilst listening to the song.
If you're feeling so inclined, you can pick up a copy of the release direct from the Alcopop store.
In other goFASTER>> news; I was looking to see if the single "Flammable Leisurewear" was on Amazon the other day. It wasn't - but I did find an import copy of their Japanese album "Magazine Addictions" which they are sneaking overseas from 5th March (possibly months before a UK album). If you're eager to hear what a full goFASTER>> album may sound like, it might be worth investing in - I say 'invest' because it will set you back 20 GBP.
