SSR020: The Love Triangle - Clever Clever LP is out today!

After a couple of pressing plant hiccup's, the debut lp from The Love Triangle is out now and available to order!

Heretofore, the Love Triangle's recordings have been marked by a particularly raw, aggressive, and even ugly take on classic power pop. Sure, the choruses were huge, but the recordings were ear-splittingly raw and aggressive. However, they've changed things up a bit for their first long-player, opting for a cleaner recording that assures nothing is lost in the translation to wax. The essential elements are still there--Tim's four-on-the-floor drumming, Josh's meandering walking bass lines, and Louis's thrillingly melodic vocals and guitar--but you can actually hear them all rather than just inferring their presence through a wall of feedback and fuzz. The effect is a full-length that recalls the classic songwriting of Nuggets greats like the Electric Prunes and the Seeds as much as it does the more melodic end of the '77 set like Protex, the Lurkers, and the Boys. An LP so good that we don't even need to tell you the band is members of Diat, Good Throb, Die, No, The Smear, CCTV and ex-Shitty Limits to get you to buy it.

Please note that this LP has been released in America by Sorry State Records, if you live there, it makes way more sense for you to go direct!

I also have a very small amount of leftover copies of the record release show version, these all have hand marble painted sleeves that are hand pasted onto old record sleeves. The records are test pressings, and are hand stamped. Only 50 were made, and the vast majority were sold at the show. These are for sale in the webstore too, but probably won't last too long.

TLT have also just recorded a brand new tape, and I have copies of that available too, believe me when I say it has some of their catchiest tracks yet.

You can order the LP from right here, or if you would prefer, you can download it for free from here (feel free to make a donation though!).

Things have been a little slow distro-wise lately, but I have just added some cool records and demos from local bands such as Die, Hunger, Frau and will be working on getting loads of killer stuff back in immediately.

Thanks for the support as always!
