WOJTEK GODZISZ - First off, Monsieur Godzisz will be performing an elegant acoustic matinee at the NIGHT & DAY at 2PM on Sunday (21st October). His new single 'The Moon And The Yew Tree' is released on 29th October and the glowing reviews have been pouring in this week.

INFANTS will then be bringing their delightfully noisy pop racket to the CAFE SAKI at 12 midnight on Monday (22nd October). They've been hard at work on their debut album, with a new single 'Foam Party' on its merry way soon.

If that's not enough for you, Tigertrap alumni are weighing in equally heavily. Go check out these bands at their respective hotspots:

Wojtek Godzisz: THE MOON AND THE YEW TREE - LAUNCH PARTY & NEW RELEASE DATE (29TH OCTOBER)
posted 19 Oct 2007

After gracing In The City in Manchester this Sunday at the Night & Day (2pm), Wojtek will be speeding back to London to prepare for his Single Launch Party at The Old Blue Last on Monday evening (22nd October).

He'll be playing main support at 9.15PM to Chauffeur Driven Aviator, so make sure you're down relatively early.

The single release has been pushed back one week to 29th October and will be available on a delightful 7" and also via all the usual digital retailers. Here are some of the kind words that we've had in so far:

==========================================

"One of the most unusual songs you will hear all year and love." - 8/10 - COMFORT COMES

"A stirring, chest beating anthem that's part Polish folk song and part Arcade Fire string loveliness." - SOUNDS XP

"Wojtek Godzisz shows himself again as an uber talented writer with a voice as rough and brutal as any haggered great." - THE PLASTIC ASHTRAY

"This is an excellent single to listen to now that winter’s coming and we’re all cold and a tad angry." - I SHOT THE DEPUTY

"Godzisz has a fantastic single on his hands... To put it simply, a thrill." - THE HORN

"Like Arcade Fire as conducted by Tim Burton" - 8/10 - LAUNCHPAD
