Stereolab
The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music

Stereolab followed their 1992 debut album, Peng!, with The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, a mini album in 1993. The title strangely seems to give a name to the music Stereolab played. Their influences came from far and wide, but were always cool and occasionally a little bit obscure - ...view item »

Stereolab
Peng!

Peng! Was the debut album by Stereolab. It was originally released in 1992. It featured all the hallmarks of their sound which was driven by rhythm guitar, vintage keyboards, a motorik beat an Laetitia Sadier’s part-Nico-part-ethereal vocals. They were influenced as much by the sunshine pop of The Free Design as the were t...view item »

Unqualified Nurse Band
Death Surf A52

The Too Pure Singles Club returns with a bang, brandishing these two slices of darkened surf-rock action by Unqualified Nurse Band. Death Surf A52 is a high-speed blast frenzy with some properly chugging rock n’ roll moments and a pleasingly dense production. The B-side continues in suitable style. Pressed to clea...view item »

Various
Pay No Attention

Too Pure have been running their monthly 7” Singles Club for long enough that they’ve amassed a catalogue 100 releases deep! They’ve decided to celebrate by issuing this limited edition LP of premium selections from the 7”s to date: Pulled Apart By Horses, Menace Beach and Hookwor...view item »

Pulled Apart By Horses
One Night In Heaven

Look, we found a remnant from Record Store Day 2015! This vinyl treat is a limited edition live recording of Pulled Apart By Horses, captured in furious full flow. The record is titled One Night In Heaven after the London venue where gig took place, and you can almost hear the night’s sweat pushing through your sp...view item »

Dream Themes
20 Golden Greats

Formerly the backing band for Timperley’s favourite son, Frank Sidebottom, Dream Themes have since carved out a niche for themselves by performing classic TV themes to appreciative audiences. Their debut LP, 20 Golden Greats is the final, and it has to be said, rather celebratory release from the Too Pure ...view item »

Thee Mvps
Sesh

Thee MVPS have been doing their thing ferociously all year long, and now they round out 2017 with a quick new single. Sesh stares modern millennial life fully in the face, and it isn’t impressed by what it sees, and throws some punchy punky guitar shapes in response. Sesh is a 7” single from Too Pur...view item »

The St Pierre Snake Invasion
Dick E Mozart

The St Pierre Snake Invasion’s new single, part of the Too Pure Singles Club, makes  a mockery of its own 7” format by being only one minute and sixteen seconds in length (although there is also a B-side). Dick E Mozart packs a lot into its tight duration though, sludging up your stereo with frantic har...view item »

Blacklisters
Dart EP

It's guaranteed noise mischief from Leeds local Blacklisters who mix the genre's snarky, dry and all-out weird humour with the necessary guitar discordance and angularity. With song titles that go above and beyond the call of duty Mclusky felt, their influences are on the sleeve...view item »

PJ Harvey
Dry

PJ Harvey is a powerful singer, song writer and musician. This CD is not for someone expecting happy, sappy love songs or a tame beat. She exudes a raw, feminine, tough, and sometime comical outlook in her songs. She holds nothing back. Each song is an experience. So put your lipstick on and light a candle, this album is ready to take you for th...view item »

JOHN
Local Blood Sport

Two John’s don’t make a right, they make, well, JOHN. The London based Alt-rock duo keep the momentum, after just releasing a full length (God Speed In The National Limit...view item »

Pet Crow
How Are You Wired

Unlike the pet seagull that was a recent barely fathomable news story, this is instead a Pet Crow. The band have already built up a good following and have been featured in all the magazines. They play a brand of raucous garage and punk rock which has drawn comparisons to the Sonics and the Julie Ruin...view item »

Seize The Chair
Knew You'd Never Been There

Sheffield based Seize The Chair have their single Knew You'd Never Been There snatched up by the Too Pure Singles Club and put out on 7”. Warm and melodic with a soft grooving bassline, there’s a great 90s nostalgia to it. For fans of Ride and The Charlatans. Backed with bra...view item »

Mush
Alternative Facts

With comparisons being drawn to Pavement, Television, and Velvet Underground, the Leeds based four-piece Mush return after their self released EP to the Too Pure label to prove them wrong, and fit perfectly alongside the likes of McClusky. A twi...view item »

MADCOLOURS
Verda Hugo

I'm so glad these guys spelt colours right. It would annoy me if they didn't. As ever it's a debut (I think most of these Too Pure ones are these days) and it's a right old jumble of styles. Firstly it's fast and frenetic and more unusually unpredictable...I'm listening to it and I've no ...view item »

Department M
The Second Prize

This isn’t Department S of ‘Is Vic There?’ fame, instead its a different department, the M department who have belatedly taken their cue from the ‘S’ lot and  and launched a pop career for themselves. In fact, this is the new project from ex Grammatics man Owen Brinley wh...view item »

Cassels
Flock Analogy

Cassels are a two-piece band from Oxfordshire that subtly combine elements of grunge with punk, alongside socially charged lyrics that delve into the mindset of the modern world.

Hippies Vs Ghosts
Wazo

Hippies and Ghosts, eternal enemies… Actually the work of Owain Ginsberg, the Hippies Vs Ghosts sound is a lithe groovy sound with a good sprinkling of 60s studio dust on top of it. A bit psychedelic (the Hippies?) and a bit krautrocky (the Ghosts?). First 7” single from these guys, and part of the Too Pure Singles ...view item »

Seize The Chair / Best Friends
I Just Want To Sleep / When Christmas Comes

Sheffield. A land of hills, eerie brutalist housing estates, half finished City Centre developments and a surprising amount of good music over the years. If they aren’t wielding synths, their bands seem to have a rockabilly swagger, slightly aligned to a grumpy old man who lives at the other end of the snake pass. This is a split 7” ...view item »

USA Nails
Stuck For Inspiration / Oven Degreaser

USA Nails are one of those bands full of spit and speed, unable to play instruments in a way that isn’t fast and distorted. So far so good! Stuck For Inspiration and its double A-side partner Oven Degreaser (mmmm, yum!) is proper noise-punk for proper noise-punks. 7” released as part of the Too Pure...view item »

Family Scraps
Mistakes

In between recording almost every band under the planet and leading Leeds drone-krauters Hookworms, Matthew Johnson (aka MJ) has also found time to work on some solo music. Compared to Hookworms gruntings it's rather tuneful. Turns out Johnson's sky-high voice works pretty well well with melodic indie rock. Fans of the c...view item »

Grief Tourist

Grief Tourist are a rough and ready hardcore band who are proud to inform listeners that Strigoi was recorded via Garageband and a dictaphone. No messing about, just hard and direct how-and-thrash.

Vincent Vocoder Voice
500,000 Hymnals

Five hundred thousand hymnals to one 7" sounds like an ambitious project, so let's wish Vincent Vocoder Voice the best of luck on their feat of record-breaking brilliance.

Indie pop from Wales that is Very Nice.

The Death Of Pop is a hell of a name with which to announce your band to the world.

Gardens, backed with ‘Only Now’, is a satisfyingly bouncy...view item »

Spectres
The Sky Of All Places

Too Pure see in 2014 with this lurid yellowy-green 7" by Spectres. It's quite good. The bass sounds really clangy which I always like and there's lots of splattery JAMC-esque noise but also a kind of ethereal droney feel with breathy one-note vocals and very few chord changes (which makes them all the more effective when they do appear). This ki...view item »

Double A-side single here from Tigercub, nicely titled Destroy / You.

The Spills
A Film and a Frame /​ Crash​-​landed Clouds

The Spills are a West Yorkshire crew, self-defining as indie rock but with vocals that sound more of the hardcore tradition. The opening of Crash-landed Clouds shows this off, the singer having seemingly zero regard for the health of his own voice. A good thing. Paired with A Film And A Frame on the a-side, the...view item »

We are Animal are a Welsh quartet who ply their trade in dance oriented rock music that sounds a little like Foals (or something like that) but without the added pretensions. '1268' is a pretty solid indie disco floor-filler. It flirts with the dynamics of the loud and quiet formula with relative ease and the chorus is catchy enough to keep my i...view item »
