The Vinyl has Landed!

It’s been a bit of a wait, but the vinyl copies of 5318008 have finally arrived, and is ready to thrust into your open arms. Of little consolation now that we have President Trump and Brexit to look forward to, but there we go. Buy them up before your currency becomes totally worthless.

They come in a nice shocking red colour, with some high-quality black polylined sleeve things. They are ‘limited’ to 100 copies, and you can get yours over on our Bandcamp, or from Cow Tongue Taco Records. There are still a few tapes left as well if that’s more your bag.

Enjoy Closet Organ as we were meant to be enjoyed. Or, something.

The day you have all been waiting for has finally arrived: the release of our debut album! Thanks to everybody who backed the project and made it happen.

5318008 is available on digital download (£10), download + cassette tape (£12.50), or download and vinyl LP which will ship in November (£17). You can get all of this on Bandcamp. It will be up on Spotify soon, but due to a backlog this won’t be for another couple of weeks.

If you are going to be in Glasgow next Saturday (the 1st of October), we have an album launch party in the 13th Note with the fabulous Ex Wives – heading out after that somewhere or other. Fiver on the door.

New video! Make America Great Again

We have been so moved and inspired by Donald Trump’s (inevitable) rise to power in the United States that we thought it only fitting to pay tribute to the walrus man by releasing our first music video in 8 years. It is with pride and (misguided) patriotism that we give to you… Make America Great Again.

To ensure that our message meets the right audience… the people who will really appreciate what we are doing, we have set up a targetted advertising campaign on Facebook. I’m sure these demographics will respond well:

We have (seriously) already receive a lot of support from Trump followers on Twitter and Reddit. They understand what we are trying to say.

Who ever said that Americans don’t get irony?

If you like it, do feel free to share. That would be lovely. You can pre-order the album from our Bandcamp here.

For now, we’ll leave you now with some pictures from the recording. #buildthatwall

Paul is Dead on Spotify

 

The single from our upcoming albumPaul is Dead – is now available to stream on Spotify, along with remixes from unexpected bowtie and Dewaud.

Check it out here, and if you like it, think about pre-ordering a copy of the album via Kickstarter. We’re over a third of the way to making it happen thanks to you fine folk.

Paul is Dead

After five years of releasing diddly-squat, we’ve gotten our act together and are releasing a single from what will be our very first full-lenth album, due to be completed later this year.

‘Paul is Dead’ is a tribute to the one and only Paul McCartney. Well, sort of. It’s actually testament to the fact that the real Paul McCartney died years ago, and was replaced by a lookalike. The evidence is all there. We’re onto you, McCartney.

Download it for free – along with two different remixes – over on BandCamp. It should be up on Spotify in the coming weeks.

 

Closet Organ Rises (again)

It’s been four years since we last did anything as a band, and after many drunken conversations, have decided it’s finally time to start making music together again.

This time around, we’re aiming to write and record as much music as possible – rather than just going back over older tracks forever. The idea was to come up with a new name, but we really couldn’t decide on anything better. Naming bands is a pain. This way, we get to keep our Twitter followers from before (all 62 of them).

Stephen, Keith and Haigie are all still involved, with Haigie joining the band upon his return to Scotland from the French ski slopes. In addition, we now have Lee joining us on second guitar.

Yesterday we headed into the studio to record three new tracks, which are in the process of being finished. Soon, all of back catalogue will be available online in the one place for the first time (some is already up here), but until then, here’s a track from 2012 that we never released at the time: Das Ist Der Hammer. Not for the easily offended.
