Ronco Revival Sound released 27 September 2013

Ronco Revival Sound cover

A ramshackle lo-fi album of love songs, pop songs and love songs about pop. The Bordellos are at right angles to musical convention and find comfort in tattered hope. The album was available in a limited edition of 100.

Weird K is a track from the “Ronco Revival Sound” (DADD14) LP

Nobody’s Listening released 10 November 2014

A rant about a lot of peoples attitude to new music and the way the music industry is drowning in blandness due to its own short sightedness and the making of a quick buck.

The people are being fed constant nostalgia, being offered a re-issue of a past classic that has been remastered and filled out with ropey live tracks and out takes. Out takes are out takes for a reason on the whole, believe me.

The music mags will prefer to re-evaluate an old LP or old artist than write about something or someone new, and on the whole people are letting them.

If it carries on this way there will be no new artists to re-evaluate in 20 years time. Just the same old Pink Floyds, Beatles, Stone Roses and maybe even another re-issue of the first La’s LP with an extra track of Lee Mavers farting at the end of There She Goes.

It’s Lo Fi! Folk Off Volume 2 released 24 December 2014

A dark lo-fi folk mini album with songs of sadness, regret, hope and, in the case of hippy heaven, rockabilly as you’d hear it in a Soviet state where dancing has been banned.

Schizo Fun Addict vs The Bordellos EP released 24 December 2014

A taster for the split cassette release by The Bordellos and Schizo Fun Addict. This EP features “A” sides by each band taken from the tape plus “B” sides unique to this release. It’s free to download, but how about donating a couple of quid to your favourite charity if you do get it. It is Christmas, after all…

Thanks to Purrsia who adds the old black and white films to Bordellos tracks on YouTube. Nobody has a clue who he or she is.
