"Speaking of illustrations, who did the album cover art for Weird Sister and a lot of your fliers?

Owen: That was Andy Hart (A Fog Of Ideas), who has been consistently great to us.”

I get a mention in a Joanna Gruesome interview here

Which was very kind of them.  More importantly, anyone here on Tumblr in or around New York needs needs must go see them at least once over the next couple of nights/days:

Sadly Golden Grrrls had to drop out of the Nottingham Joanna Gruesome show but we have some able replacements in Anguish Sandwich and Horowitz in their stead
So I’ve redone the flier and here it is

Naturally you’ll be coming to Nottingham for the alldayer on Saturday 14th September, so why not stick around for this the following Wednesday… Joanna Gruesome, Golden Grrrls, Trust Fund, possibly one other… all at the world famous The Chameleon Arts Cafe above the card shop (conveniently close to Nandos) diagonally opposite Yates’s near the Market Square (and beach)

Joanna Gruesome might be one of my favorite bands going right now—and probably the most exciting. If there’s any justice, when their debut LP finally hits later this year it’s going to drop like a fuzz bomb of pop brillance, knocking down everything in its path. The two tracks on their recent Happy Happy Birthday To Me-released 7” are not only indicative of their wide-eyed energy and ability to write a fine hook, but also—and most importantly—that they aren’t afraid to kick you in the face and spit on your shoes. Just wait for “Secret Surprise” and you’ll really get it.

But for now we’ve got “Do You Really Wanna Know Why Yr Still In Love With Me?”: A song as impressive in its shimmering melodic drive and sheer length of title as Airport Girl’s indiepop classic “The Foolishness That We Create Through Love Is The Closest We Come To Greatness”. But where Airport Girl’s ode to life-affirming love runs on wonderfully blind optimism, you get the sense that JGro aren’t quite that naive. Love cuts, folks.

Get it from Happy Happy Birthday To Me or yr favorite distro.
