SURPRISE 024 | THE OBSERVERS - SO WHAT'S LEFT NOW
TAKEN BY SURPRISE repress! This is my favorite punk record of the last decade and I am more than happy to be repressing it, artwork has been bumped up a notch, so this LP looks better than ever. If you don't like this record, you shouldn't be listening to punk, maybe it's not for you.

SURPRISE 025 | ROLE MODELS - FUCK YOU, SEE YOU AT THE TALENT SHOW 12"
When you're a kid, Friday nights are the best thing ever. No school, weekend to piss about with friends, best night of telly.
Luckily Role Models never grew up and set about making their own seven day weekend.
Meeting in London from their four corners of the globe they settled on Soho as their home, picking their way through the waifs and strays of the city after dark to find themselves playing the soundtrack.
All have played in many other bands, but to mention them here would be crass.
"The stuff we did for kicks, left a little scar I couldn't fix" - Role Models

Terrible Feelings’ date of birth was sometime during the fall of 2009, in
Malmö, Sweden. Anton and Manuela had been set on trying out new stuff that
was different from their previous band constellations, and recruited Andy and
Willy along the way. In April 2010 the band released a four-song demo, to some pretty rave
reviews. Since then, they’ve played all over Sweden and Germany, and shared stages with a variety of bands; Cheap Time, Cola Freaks, Screaming Females, and Tyvek, among others.
The spring of 2011 saw the release of two 7”s. Tied Up on Timmeheiehumme
Records from Germany, and Impending Doom, a co-release between Sabotage
Records and Manuela’s own Lack Of Sleep imprint.
Someone described the music as “Loud, dark, therapeutic, and rough around
the edges”, and Anton once said he played “black angst-ridden power pop.” Both quotes sum up Terrible Feelings pretty well. Place their sound somewhere in the wastelands between Wipers, Redd Kross, Ebba Grön and Murder City Devils.
In June they’ll embark on a three week European tour, which will take them through Germany, France, Spain and Switzerland. A Japanese release on the label Donuts Pop is scheduled for early fall 2011, and Scotch Tapes from Canada will release the demo tracks on tape and flexi disc sometime soon.
