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.

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.

Thanks to Jeffels for the pictures!

We’re making an album!

Well, we did it.

Thanks to you lovely people, we smashed through our goal of £400, meaning that we are definitely recording a full length album, and releasing it on vinyl and cassette. On top of that, we also passed the £750 stretch goal, with a total of £776, which means that we will also be putting together an exclusive EP for those who backed the project.

The songs are (mostly) written, and we are heading off to a cottage in the middle of nowhere next week with bottles of Goldschlager and apple loops to bluff our way through the recording process.

Watch this space.

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.
