Humour: So Young’s Latest Hardcore Signing

Glaswegian 5-piece band Humour are the latest and most rip-roaring addition to the instantly addictive lineup of bands on So Young records’ roster. The boys, many of who met at primary school or whilst studying in Glasgow, have poured their collective talents into their new EP, “PURE MISERY” set for release on November 25th. The recent singles ‘yeah, mud!’ and ‘alive and well’ have teased a hard-hitting and unmissable six-track record later on this year. Totally Wired Magazine spoke to two of the band’s founding members, guitarist Jack Lyall and frontman (plus visual artist) Andreas Christodoulidis. Hi guys, what have you been up to? Andreas: Just getting the artwork for the singles finalised and quite a few interviews too. Jack: Oh yeah, a few of those. Andreas: We’re getting a little bit better at it but still not great, as you’ll find out. Well, you boys are one of the latest signings to the new SoYoung Records; how did that come about? Jack: Our friend sent them one of our songs at the end of last year. Andreas: He’s a photographer, so he knew them through work. But he didn’t actually tell us he was going to do it. Jack:

Why We Love: The Cleaners from Venus (aka Martin Newell)

In 1980, Newell formed The Cleaners from Venus with Lawrence “Lol” Elliot, though since then, he has remained the only consistent member. Under this moniker, Newell has released a multitude of albums, and this isn’t even taking into consideration his wealth of material under his own name. Starting with Blow Away Your Troubles, Newell showed the world what to expect from The Cleaners from Venus: wonderful, jangly music that was staunchly lo-fi.

Catching Up with PREGOBLIN

I can’t quite recall how or when I first heard PREGOBLIN’s 2019 single “Combustion,” but I do remember that within twenty-four hours, I’d listened to it about thirty times. The two minutes and 43 seconds of infectiously danceable beats and clever, darkly humorous lyrics (“Spontaneous combustion is the way I wanna go“) had me hooked; I was, and remain, an instant fan. PREGOBLIN was initially composed of sad music/crance sensation Jessica Winter and Alex Sebley. The duo wrote a string of excellent singles (including “Combustion,” which has racked up a million-plus streams on Spotify) accompanied by camp, highly imaginative, low-budget

Deadletter Unleashes ‘Binge’

In a world of nicotine patches, ‘don’t talk to me before my morning coffee,’ and Klarna payment plans for your new shoes – frontman Zac Lawrence preaches at a world which demands everything immediately all the time. Instant porn, instant music, instant dating, and instant celebrity content have made us all shallow and impatient, and it’s hard to tell if ‘Binge’ is a call to arms against our current evolution or a sardonic ‘so what?’ ‘Binge’ brings us a

Miles Apart: Kiwanuka At The Brighton Centre

‘Even if we are miles apart.’   These are the echoing last words of Michael Kiwanuka’s ‘Light.’ They’ve taken on new meaning with all that we’ve been through since its release

Squire: the next big thing from Newcastle

Rough Trade is a goldmine bursting to the brim of undiscovered and lesser known gems, artists on the up hill climb to stardom, who wholeheartedly deserve to be in the limelight.

Bishopskin: Lean Closer

Bishopskin call the track less “primal,” than their recent single, “I Was Born on an Island,” but the injection of a little modernity ultimately showcases the band’s wide range, and adept control at genre-bending.
