Hug and Pint 2019

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.

Buy a Vinyl to Donate to the ACLU

One of the few ways left to fight Donald Trump effectively is through the legal system, and one of the few organisations prepared and able to do that is the American Civil Liberties Union. Mind the judgement that helped slow down the ban on visitors from certain countries? That was because of them. Today, Bandcamp are donating their share of any sales to the ACLU, and we’ve decided to join them.

For today only, if you purchase anything from our online shop (http://closetorgan.bandcamp.com), we will donate all of the cash (minus postage costs) to the ACLU.

Keep fighting the good fight.

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.

Closet Organ Launch Party

Last night a bunch of you lovely people came down to the 13th Note for our album launch party. In many ways, it was a sort of homecoming: returning to one of the first venues we ever played in Glasgow, to a crowd including folk who we met around ten years ago whilst making music, with support from a band from the same era – the fantastic Ex Wives. To paraphrase what one person said:

It’s like a 2006 reunion in here. Ten years on, having had varying degrees of musical success, it all comes back to the Note.

For us though, it felt like a new beginning. Rather than going back to square one, it felt like the launching of a new journey; as if we’ve finally become the band that we always should have been.

Now that the smoke has cleared and chunks of guitar have stopped flying; through the haze of the hangover all that is left is a profound and genuine feeling of humble appreciation for everybody who supported us – either through throwing cold, hard-earned cash at our Kickstarter, giving us lifts to and from various venues, buying the album, or turning up at the gig last night – so thank you. As for the rest of you… you’re dead to us.

To say thanks, if you use the code ‘organfailure’ during checkout at http://closetorgan.bandcamp.com, you’ll get 25% off of any order of the album for the next 24 hours.
