Jake Mattison – “Sorrow” Single Launch Parties!

Well it wouldn’t be a proper single release without a big launch party, would it? In this case, we’ve decided to really push the boat out and throw TWO parties on consecutive nights (6 & 7 June), in Manchester and London respectively, so both sides of the Watford Gap can have a piece of Jake Mattison action.

Support in Manchester comes from Tawse, whilst Australia’s Israel Cannan will be opening up in London, all before Jake comes on to celebrate the release of his first ever single. There’ll be special guest DJ sets too, and we’ll most likely be dusting off our own 12 inches in time for the occasion.

Grab your tickets HERE (includes a ticket / 7″ vinyl deal) and be sure to let us know you’re coming by RSVP’ing to the Facebook events. If for some reason you can’t make either show but still want a seven inch, pre-order is now open here. There aren’t many tickets (or vinyls) at all, so be quick if you want in.

Welcome To The North

First things first – we’d like to (slightly belatedly) thank all of you for making our recent fourth birthday shows so memorable and successful. The second night at The Macbeth, featuring Let’s Buy Happiness, The Collectable Few, Escapists and Channel Cairo, set a new LFC record in terms of attendance. It was a good old fashioned, sweaty rock ‘n’ roll gig that we’ll remember for a very long time. If you were there on the night – or even if you weren’t – check out this excellent photo blog of the evening courtesy of The Ladies Toilet.

Moving on to more current affairs – after four years of promoting in the capital, we felt it was about time to spread our wings a little and branch out into the world of regional promotion. Our first stop of this new and exciting chapter is Manchester – a city with such a fantastic musical heritage, it seemed an obvious place to start. We’re putting on a bill on Thursday 3rd March at The Castle Hotel (a venue we absolutely loved during In The City last year) on Oldham Street, featuring Nottingham’s about-to-break Dog Is Dead, our latest signings (for their hook-heavy debut 7″ “Headstrong”) The Collectable Few and buzzy local outfit The Cold One Hundred, who seek inspiration from great Manchester bands of yesteryear such as The Smiths, Joy Division and The Chameleons, or a ‘pre digital age’ (High Voltage).

On the decks are Underachievers, an established MCR club night, and as always LFC DJs will be spinning the best new indie, electro and rock ‘n’ roll till whenever people decide to call it a day. Given the attention all the bands on the bill have been receiving in the last few months, this could well be one of those ‘I was there’ shows. Just a head’s up. Grab tickets for just £5 and RSVP to the Facebook event via our events page.
