Well I was planning on writing about how much of a jolly good time I had at the Modular End Of Year Party but unfortunately a combination of me drinking lots of rum and a disagreement, over something I have no recollection of, with one of the Canvas security team meant I was there for only 30 minutes. I did get to see some of New Young Pony Club’s set and they were quite special (You can see pictures of the event here)
Anyway, Modular aren’t ones to rest on their laurels and they’ve got plenty of exciting music lined up for 2007 – A New Young Pony Club longplayer, the much anticipated (and delayed) debut from MSTRKRFT, new material from the Avalanches and Cut Copy and quite excitingly some new stuff from The Bumblebeez!!
The Bumblebeez caused a bit of a stir a few years back with the release of the excellent (and quite rare) White Printz EP on Wichita (I remember the sorely missed Jockey Slut touting them as the Next Big Thing) they released a further EP on Wichita and were then snaffled up by Modular who put out the album excellent Printz in 2004. And then The Bumblebeez kinda went off the radar.
But now they are back! On Monday, Black Dirt is released on veeee veeee limited 7″ vinyl and is some more infectious scuzzhop sounds and they’ve put together a funny video to celebrte this fact! Tiger Suits are splendid no matter what anyone says!
I’ve also stuck up a couple of tracks of theirs which I think are great!
