Yesterday we had a triple helping of dilectable downloads courtesy of Peter Richard Adams and his bands Hey You Guys! and Peter With Rosie (get them all here), but we’ve been thinking that after three days of solid gold Christmas classics, it might be time to put down the jingle bells and treat you to something a less festive and little more abrasive.
As always, the tracks are completely free to download and there’s no need to sign up to any mailing lists to access the tracks (though if you’d like to you can join ours here), but we’d love you to make a donation to the wonderful charity Help Musicians, who offer health and welfare support to musicians at all stages of their lives.
Right, let’s find out who’s bringing the free music today!
Cheshire-based situationist punks Salt The Snail first came to our attention with a wonderfully bizarre set at Portals Festival a couple of years back which involved bubble guns, a set list contructed by randomly selecting mushrooms with song titles written on them and audience members winning pineapples, all set to a blistering stop-start post hardcore soundtrack.
As the world slowly began to emerge from lockdown this year, they released new single ‘Raisin Boy‘ and made their return to live music, including a performance at Liverpool punk all-dayer Crapfest.
Tonight they play The Flapper in Birmingham for excellent local promoters DIE, DAS, DER alongside Grotbags, Hey Alamo! and Knife Crime (tickets here), before heading off to Manchester to headline Society of Losers’ Christmas Special at Gullivers, with support from Springfield Elementary, Parker, Soup! and Psychederek (tickets here).
They’ve provided us with an exclusive new track, ‘Matador Print’ for today’s calendar window – fill your boots and watch out for low-flying mushrooms.
Come back tomorrow for more exclusive tracks + check out the tracks from previous windows, all of which are still available to download:
#1: Piney Gir – Everybody Knows It’s Christmas
#2: Lost Map Records: Gordon McIntyre – You and Me and The Ghosts of Christmas Past
#3: Hey You Guys! – I’m Sorry, Peter With Rosie – The Oxen + Peter Richard Adams – The Roaring Twenties
