It was back in September 2011 that LOUD HORIZON first wrote about SPECTRES. The final words in that little piece were: ‘Bottom line is that I love this shit! Here’s the EP in its entirety. It’s the future!‘
And it was indeed!
Since then, the band have amongst other things, won ARTROCKER MAGAZINE’S title of ‘Unsigned Band of the Year.‘ (I may be biased, but THAT’S the reward they ALL want!)
Anyway – about a month ago their label, Howling Owl Records announced that SPECTRES would be releasing a new EP come March. Obviously knowing how to create genuine market demand, the canny people at Howling Owl decided on a Limited Edition release of only one hundred, 12″ vinyl, each with handmade sleeves & artwork.
Unsurprisingly, these have already been snapped up by way of advance orders and so a second pressing is now in production. (You can order a copy of that one here!)
Want to know what all the fuss is about? Well, here you go …… and remember where you heard it first ( I think I’m right in saying SPECTRES picked up their Artrocker award in September 2012 – some twelve months after LOUD HORIZON wrote the above!)
Don’t you just HATE a smart-arse??!
(… and here, just for the hell of it is a track from last year’s EP that kicked the whole thing off:)
