The ever brilliant Dead Penny Records brings you the latest CD single from The Insect Guide. Just ahead of their forthcoming 2nd album, here's another absolutely killer track taken from it, albeit in a slightly different mix. Wasted has "single" written all over it, and is definitely one of the most foot stompingly floor filling tracks performed at Insect Guide gigs. Three and a half minute fuzzed up, dark edged pop just doesn't get any better than this. You also get exclusive track Float which brings to mind the very best of The Velvet Underground with its wonderful floor tom and tambourine hits, and a demo version of Green Green, a track that was featured on their debut album.
And just like the previous single Dark Days And Nights, this is another "vinyl style" release in a black sleeve with the CD itself pressed to look like a 7" single (with actual grooves...but please don't try playing it on a turntable) and also with hand numbered fold out artwork inside. Highly collectable, strictly limited edition, absolutely perfect. With a recent Marc Riley 6 Music session under their belts, a string of UK dates on the horizon, the 2nd album out shortly and a very definite buzz building about this band, these limited CD releases are bound to soon become much sought after... so grab one while you can.
Do you like having a good time? Well, you need a good watch.
Here's the latest release from Insect Guide, and it's another sure-fire winner. 4 tracks of beautifully nocturnal sonic brilliance, all wrapped up in the most gorgeous packaging we've ever had the pleasure to hold in our paws.
"Listen to them, children of the night, what music they make"...

Definitely one of the standout tracks from their forthcoming Dark Days And Nights CD/DVD, with the word "single" written all over it, Down From Here finds Insect Guide at their poppiest with uptempo hooklines and fuzzy guitars, but still with the sonic flick knives concealed inside their noisy outer layers. This release also includes 2 exclusive accompanying tracks—the wonderful... [more]
