Bits and bobs

on Saturday, August 12, 2006
I know what you're thinking - "oh no, not them again!" - but yes more Hot Club de Paris news for everyone. They're opening for fellow Northerners Maximo Park on some of their October tour dates, which is great news. Hot Club de Paris are heading out on their own tour as well in September following a performance at Bestival on the Isle Of Wight. New single 'Everyeveryeverything' (b-side is 'I Quit My Job') is out on September 25th and their debut album comes out on the 2nd of October. I'm not sure whether it's called 'Winners!' or 'Drop It Till It Pops' but no matter, it's almost destined for greatness.

Buy debut single 'Sometimesitsbetter...' at Puregroove [link].
Jamie T has announced an October UK tour. He's playing a fair few other dates before that, including V Festival and Bestival. All the dates are on his MySpace [link].
Converse Music are launching a competition for unsigned bands to release 1000 7" vinyls, with promised gigs and promo support as well. Sounds like a good deal to me, for more details see their website [link].
I got an email earlier telling me that Selector [link] is having another live showcase featuring the likes of Guillemots and Yes Boss on September 13th at the Islington Academy, London. Best of all it's free if you email theselector[at] and ask for upto four tickets. There's more info in the email so if you want me to forward it to you just leave your email addy in the comments or email me.
Just a quick note to say there are a few posts round the corner, hopefully including a Los Campesinos! interview and a live review of The Sunshine Underground. Goody.
