We’ll be playing with Sick Joy tonight as a last minute addition to their Garage show in Glasgow.
Last night we headed to Broadcast in Glasgow to play alongside the fantastic Weakened Friends, and Stonefield who had come all the way from Australia.

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.
and then this happened…

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!
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.
We’ve gone and fallen into a support slot for the wonderful Living Body – the night of our final day of album recording.
The gig is next Thursday, the 28th of July, at Broadcast in Glasgow. Tickets are six quid and available here. This will be our only gig until our album launch sometime in October.
