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 and Laetitia Sadier’s part-Nico-part-ethereal vocals. They were influenced as much by the sunshine pop of The Free Design as the were the experimental rock of Can. This is good place to start with the ‘lab, as well as being a cracker, you can see how their sound progresses from here, album by album.

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) they release this double A-sider with Too Pure Singles Club. Fast paced and energetic to the point of frantic, noise rock. I’ll have two please.

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 - Os Mutantes, Esquivel, Neu! Francoise Hardy, Velvet Underground. Clear vinyl reissue on Too Pure.

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 clear 7” vinyl.

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 Hookworms are among the bands represented. 

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 speakers. On Too Pure.

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 singles club. 20 tracks over two 7” singles will see the singles club’s ten year run come to an end in style.

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 Pure Singles Club.

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 hardcore.

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 and their music could soon be in your ears with this 7" of huffing and puffing punx.

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. 

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 brand new track Secret Sister.

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. Flock Analogy is the two record 7” vinyl that shows the exact artfulness that the two brothers have successfully achieved in this release.

Bruising / Personal Best
What It Feels Like / Rollies

A pair of the finest, freshest young indie pop bands operating in the UK at the moment, sharing a 7”. On What It Feels Like, Leeds’ own Bruising sound more like a young and fiery Pixies than the actual Pixies do at the moment, whereas Personal Best’s Rollies is a sad relationship song. Split 7” single on Too Pure Singles Club.

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 chirpy end of Deerhunter should perhaps take note.
