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.

Pre-Order Our New Album

Yesterday we launched a project on Kickstarter to help us fund the recording of a new album, tentatively titled ‘Pished & Fabulous’.

L1007095

The bunch of us have been making music together in different guises for years, yet we have never recorded a full-length album together. When we decided to rekindle Closet Organ, this was something we wanted to change. Being able to look back at something in years to come, and go ‘we did that’ is the aim.

Rather than just do a digital-only release that would be quickly forgotten, we wanted to do something a bit more interesting… so, we are. The idea is that there will be a bunch of handmade, limited edition cassette tapes of the release, and an even more limited edition short-run of 12″ vinyl LPs (about 15 total).

The cost of vinyl production – even in small runs – is so high that it would be impossible without getting some sort of idea of the interest up front. So, we’ve opted to go down the same route as other indie bands and raise the funds through pre-orders. We’re already at £81, which is almost a quarter of the way – which is pretty awesome.

If you’re interested in pre-ordering, naming some of the tracks/album, or just want to see wtf is going on, check the Kickstarter page out here. We know that plenty of you hate us deeply, so there’s even an option to kill the band for a donation of £4,000 or above.

Thanks!

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.
