Spirit of the Season

On a rare and recent gathering of the Underused Records cohort, we realised it had been a while since we started this endeavour, and on a cold and frosty eve, thought “Would it be nice to share…”. So, for the month of December, you can download any Underused Records Release through our Bandcamp page for a mere £4, and if there are any CDs left, you can get the physical CD to hold in yer hand.

Everyday throughout December, we’ll share a track with you via Facebook and Twitter. If you want the whole thing, you can have a bargainous little download compilation of 24 of our Underused favourites to burn to your own CD as a stocking filler for the one you love.


It’s nearly here: Fever Dream “E.P.” 1/10/12

We are beyond excited to announce Fever Dream’s 6 track recording, “E.P.” (USED008), has now been scheduled for release on 1 October 2012. A blinding mix of pop, noise and seditious rhythms… we think you ears will thank you.

starting the year on a high

We’re delighted to have a new band in the Underused stable – Fever Dream have hooked up with us for 2012. We got in there just in time, as the Independent have them down as one of the bands of 2012. Hitting the ground running, we’ll have their single, “This Waste” coming out on all good digital outlets on 6 February 2012, followed by an album by the summer.

If you like noisy dreampop, wild guitars and stonking rhythms, you’re in for a treat.


And even better, there’s a single launch to go with it – Fever Dream, with Moustache of Insanity & Baanex, at The Others, Stoke Newington, London town, on Friday 3rd February. It would be a good idea to be there at the beginning… details here

STOP PRESS: first 20 through the doors will get a free download code for the single.. woohoo!
