HOORAY! Today is the first instalment of our Comic Book Club (we couldn’t wait until Monday). The track is from Saam Watkins’ new project ‘start over’ (all lower case duh) and the comic book comes from his own fair hand with the help of his self-proclaimed partner-in-crime Dean Smithers.
Stream the song and browse the strip below, (or after the jump if that’s the case)
Hello! so today we’re announcing what is kind of a singles club but isn’t really. say hi to the ASDFG Comic Book Club. Every now and again an artist we really love will record us a song and draw us a comic strip for you to read whilst you listen to that song, so if you like comics and music or comics or music you’ll at least get something that you like.
Hello, we have a double-header tonight! Two new release dates and previews and junk! Happy Wednesday!
So as we’ve already mentioned, we’re going to be releasing a book of illustrations from the awesome Brighton-based illustrator Eleanor Rudge. You can view some of Eleanor’s earlier work by clicking on the picture of her above! We can tell you now that the book will be coming out on June 3rd with pre-orders starting the Monday before. I don’t think I could explain the concept as well as Eleanor could so here is what she had to say:
Hello. Something played a show at Heartattack & Vine on Saturday night and though the project was initially a recording only project, they’ve decided to go on tour. but touring is really expensive, so we’ve set up a kickstarter campaign to try and help them raise some money to tour with. If you can find some spare money in your pocket or bank account to fund them, they will be forever grateful. You can donate via the widget below.
Hello, I have some annoying news.
Today I went to the post office to send off the first batch of Something records and found out I had underestimated the cost of posting out packages. It was in fact just over double what I had charged for postage, so obviously this ate into a large chunk of the money from the records which might hit the next release which sucks.
So I am having to raise postage prices to not only match the price I was told today but to match the price increase which is happening this saturday (as told to me by the woman behind the desk)
Hello, so the first Something record ‘What’ is out today and you can stream it below and if you like it you could buy a physical copy but if you don’t like physical things then you can download it on a pay-what-you-can scheme! Thank god for all things independent. The physical cassette only costs £2 and it’s a really nice looking thing, it’s hand dip-dyed red and green, hand stamped and hand dubbed on pea green cassettes with gold flakes and it all gets sent out tied up in a nice red bow! Here’s some pictures to better explain
Good afternoon! As you may know Monday will see the release of the debut album from Something; the new project from Oliver Catt (Formally Fantasy Rainbow).
As a super special present to Fuzzbook readers, here is an exclusive interview with the man himself aswell as an early bird stream…

If you don’t know what the Art Is Hard postcard is then you’re really missing out. Every 3 weeks they send out a single in the form of a postcard and the songs are cool and the art is cool and the whole thing is just cool, if you want to know more go HERE. Anyway, their third installment came out today and oh it’s a Something song. It’s called Lo; Behold and it’ll be on ‘What’ which is coming next week.
Today I’d like to announce our first release and a show in celebration of that release. The first release will be the first album by Something (which coincidentally is my own project) entitled ‘What’. It will come on a limited edition run of pea green, gold-flaked cassettes w/ hand dip dyed and hand stamped inlays and tied up in a nice red bow. They really are very attractive looking things. You will hear music before that release date, but that is another blog post for another day (soon).
In honour of this record, there will be a release show at The Heartattack & Vine, which is a wonderful DIY space in the ouseburn valley where you can bring your own drinks and your own friends and there’s no pressure or anything. Also, it in itself is a very attractive looking thing
