Been wondering what Infants have been up to between recording sessions for their album? Well pop down to our noisy-bastard-music-fest on 1st August at Islington's The Wilmington Arms venue and see. Bill Infants' monster rock trio REAL FEAL will be kicking out the riffs and rolls as main support to former Headless bad-ass Chrissie in her latest guise, CUCKOO'S NEST.

Also on the bill are the immensely good CHIARA L'S and DOCKSUD.

Flyer price is a meager £5. Here is a flyer...

Running order is below:

1. Captain Love
2. Song In D
3. Smile On
4. World Of Machine
5. Lila
6. Ms. Brown's Morning Cup
7. Supergang
8. Motel Man
9. Relax And Degrade
10. Majestic Raincoat
11. Old Movies
12. Beauty Of A Scar (UK bonus track)

Captain Love is available to pre-order through the Tigertrap online shop now and will be in shops on CD format and via all the usual digital retailers in August. The band will be over in the UK for a tour later in the year. Details to follow soon.

Mock Orange: MOCK ORANGE - 'SONG IN D' single out today
posted 24 Apr 2008

Monday sees Indiana's finest indie rock export, Mock Orange, release their spanking new single 'Song In D'. A superlative mixture of The Flaming Lips' and Modest Mouse's quirky genius, the digital single comes with an exclusive b-side 'Til The Morning' and is available from all top digital suppliers (iTunes, Emusic, Napster, etc).

The band received a glowing feature in The Independent last Sunday, who marvelled "it's hard to fault this quartet, whose melodic guitars and quirkiness will leave you positively delirious".

The single precedes the new album 'Captain Love' (due for an August release), a sumptuous masterpiece that will appeal to any fans of lush American indie rock. Expect to be hearing a lot more from these guys when they head over for a full UK tour towards the end of summer.
