The pre-order for our new 7″, a picture disc collaboration with Daniel Eatock & Andy Holden, is now live at the Lost Toys Records shop.
We’re incredibly proud of the 2 songs, ‘You Could Be A Model’ and ‘Ultra Silence’ on this 7″ as well as the project with Daniel Eatock which has resulted in these amazing records.
Every side of every record features a unique spiral drawing, created by spinning the paper on a turntable (the very thing the records will spin on to play the music). 180 records exist, that’s 360 drawings. 360. Circles. Spinning. Are you getting it? Side A features a free-form spiral, the double a-side features a dense single-line spiral. The amount of ink on the drawings relates to how long the song is.

We are playing this amazing festival at Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge this September. Having been to Wysing a couple of times in the past (to perform with Andy Holden and at the first Wysing Art/Music festival) we really can’t wait to play this and it’s a total honour to be on the same bill as Damo Suzuki, Bruce Lacey, Alexander Tucker and our friends Yola Fatoush.
Tickets are dirt cheap and include travel from St Pancras or Cambridge. You’ll be a fool to miss this. We will be camping.

Once upon a time I showed my friend Andy (Lost Toys/Grubby Mitts/etc.) a book I just bought, ‘Imprint’ by Daniel Eatock. 4 years later, this is happening:
Each 7″ disc will be unique, with the artwork created from spinning circular paper on a turntable whilst holding a felt-tip pen down on the paper whilst it spins. This paper then gets sent to the manufacturers who sandwich it between the two transparent sides of the record (where all the grooves are). The length of the line corresponds to the amount of revolutions the paper makes (the pen will first touch the paper at the start of the song, and will be lifted off at the end).
We’re hoping for roughly 30 people with 30 turntables to turn up to the spin session at Stanley Picker Gallery in Kingston, anyone can drop in. We’ll be playing the single quite a few times so bring some tolerance. Every 10 times the song is played, we’ll be performing it live.

Drowned in Sound have reviewed the WrongPop compilation for Deafness Research UK which our song ‘Diamond Swords’ features on:
“Ice, Sea, Dead People not only have a truly wonderful band name, they also provided ‘Diamond Swords,’ a frenetic beast of a song that burns itself out quicker than most bands can open a six-pack.”
Be sure to buy the compilation from the WrongPop Bandcamp page now, it’s only £5 and is only available for this month only.

Steve of Wrongpop has assembled this compilation of noisy/notoriously loud bands (Part Chimp, Shield Your Eyes, Kong, Pulled Apart By Horses, etc.) in aid of Deafness Research UK. #irony
‘Diamond Swords’ is a new track we’re particularly fond of—it being the first one we wrote with Jamie—which will feature on our second album. Details: it was recorded live on to tape and mixed live (which is both fun and terrifying) with Tim Cedar (he of Part Chimp-fame) at Dropout Studios, Camberwell. It’s unmastered. It will sound a bit different on the album. Probably.
Anyway, the compilation’s available to buy for £5 with all money going towards Deafness Research UK.
