    Hello there pop pickers!

    Yep, it's been absolutely AGES since we last gave an update, not that we've been resting on our laurels or anything. On the contrary, we've got releases upon releases piled up and we want you to listen to 'em, but we're perfectionists and want everything to be tip-top and spick and span before it gets unleashed upon you all. And, typically, all of the releases seem to be ready all at once, which is VERY CONVENIENT INDEED. Not that we're moaning like.

    Anyway, enuff guff, onto Distraktion aktion. The first release upcoming getting us very excited at Distraction Towers is the speaker-kicking noisefest from Necro Deathmort. This Beat Is Necrotronic (DIST19) comes out on CD with limited edition packaging from WT Nelson at Thumbprint Press (those of you that have the Marzuraan Five Years Of Fuck All CD on At War With False Noise or seen the Bastard Noise packaging will know what to expect here), and what a bloody joy to look at it is. …

    Okay, back at it!

    Been a while since our last update, to be sure. That's because we've been beavering quietly away working on getting things sorted for the biggest and best Distraction Weekender yet, as well as getting future releases in the cannon too.

    Remember! August 8th, 9th and 10th sees the Distraction Weekender hit Newcastle-upon-Tyne's Cluny again for yet more aural innovation, future players, and diverse sonic excursions. As always, accept no imitations, this one's going to be a cracker.

    Friday's lineup has the cream of the crop of the best bands around today, featuring School Of Language, Milky Wimpshake, The Matinee Orchestra, Pale Man Made, and St. James Infirmary with the Cuckoo's Nest DJs bringing the tunes! Saturday, anything goes with a complete disregard for genre, bringing you The Week That Was, Moira Stewart, Wroooaar!, Warm Digits, BLUNTWOUNDTRAUMA, B>E>A>K, The Black Static of Summer, The Big Oaks, and Nathalie Stern; plus d_rradio and DJ Search Warrant on the wheels of steel. …
