Wow! Trev's famous! I haven't read Record Collector in years (possibly even decades!) but I might see if I can get a copy of this issue (or maybe just read this page in WH Smiths!).

Record Collector is pretty much the only music mag that I read these days. I like collecting, I guess.

I haven't read any in a long time. The morphing of britpop into ladrock extinguished any interest in anything that they were writing about. And the ones that weren't were only writing about old stuff (like Record Collector I guess :-) ).

New 100 Club single.

The 100 Club series is still going strong and the next instalment is now ready for pre-order. We're delighted that we've managed to snag Peaness - the buzz tastic trio from Chester who make delicious guitar pop that is sure to be a delight for fans of Standard Fare, Chorusgirl and Belly.

The single is being pressed, as ever, in the 100 club in an edition of just 100. We're hoping to have these 7s back at the end of January. Grab yours now before they're all gone.

The band premiered a video (for the B side 'Seafoam Islands') over on Too Many Blogs today too: http://toomanyblogs.co.uk/2016/11/21/pr ... m-islands/

As the shop gets ever nearer to being open I've started to realise that I simply don't have the time or mental energy to continue to promote shows in London and Cardiff. So with that in mind I have decided to hang up the Odd Box promoting stamp for good.

I have been promoting shows (first as Lostmusic in 2007 and as Odd Box since 2009). That's 10 years and many hundreds of bands. I'll have to do a count up of all the shows before the end happens. Since moving to Cardiff I have jumped in and set up shows for bands I am passionate about but all things come to an end and it feels right that the end is now in sight. I've had so much fun doing this and I am sure I will miss it terribly. But, rightly, the shop will soon be taking up a massive amount of my time and focus.

These will be the last ever shows that Odd Box promotes:

4th June Dream Nails / Charmpit / VAN-illa - Transport Club, Cardiff.

5th June The Wolfhounds / Ski Saigon / DISJOY - Paper Dress, London.

13th July Passion Pusher / Jealous Girlfriend / Pink Grapefruit - The Moon, Cardiff.

25th July Chorusgirl / Emma Kupa / More TBC - Gwdihw, Cardiff.

30th Sept/1st October A final fling with details yet to be confirmed - Cardiff.
(dates may be subject to change)

It would be lovely to see you at one of these shows. Odd Box Records will continue, for those, that like what we release.

Just over £300 to go to reach target. Amazed by the kind response of people.
