Off of the brand new double A side, Glasgow’s Closet Organ deliver a visceral fuzz-punk track. With guttural vocals from Stephen McLeod Blythe, Smells Like Lynx Africa is a sonic powerhouse that will leave your ears ringing. – Scottish Alternative Music Awards
Today we release a new double A side single: ‘Smells Like Lynx Africa / Fat & Die: An Autobiography‘.
Recorded and mixed by us. Mastered by Charlie Francis of Synergy Mastering (Victorian English Gentlemens Club/REM/Noisettes/Future of the Left), it’s a two track grungepunk spectacle – “like Mclusky having a fist fight with The Smashing Pumpkins in a universe far, far away” (thepunksite).
You can stream the tracks below, or over on Spotify. If you want a shiny MP3 copy for yer iPod, get it over on Bandcamp for a couple of quid.
Last night we put on a gig at the Hug & Pint in Glasgow. It was good. Tupper Werewolf was good. Ex Wives were good. We were good. You were good. The end.
