So last week AYA curated the pretty loud, pretty messy and pretty awesome (#boast) album launch party for East London’s newest punk grunge heroes, Throwing Up. Released on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings label; ‘Over You’, was recorded and self produced in London & mixed by Tim Burgess and Jim Spencer and last Monday we hosted little get together for friends, family, fans and some special guests at the Bardens Gallery Space in Dalston. With an exclusive album playback, LOADS of free drinks from the lovely people at BRAND REVOLUTION and Hoxton Gin, fun colourful projections, an absolutely AMAZING (red-inside) specially designed cake from the amazing Lily Vanilli, fun photos with our INST-VOM photo corner, free merch goodies and hang times with the Throwing Up girls, OH and more free booze!
So a massive thanks to all those who came down, hung out, ate cake and celebrated the banging OVER YOU album by necking enough boozey cockatils to last the whole summer! (Extra high fives to everyone who then followed up the awesomeness of THROWING UP's shindig, with a massive Karaoke rager at the Alibi, also hosted by AYA. We hope everyone else's Tuesday wasn't as much of a struggle as ours was...!)
MEGA MONDAYS ARE BACK. AND HERE ARE THE PHOTOS...
Their music is the sound of a kind of sticker book collage of the best of the past and the present, with one eye on the future. With their whistle at the bus stop hooks and snappy tunes their songs are stripped back, yet so catchy too… it’s Agit pop like we’ve not seen in a while. A little bit of something to shake the mainstream up but happy to be a poster on your bedroom wall too – We love Camille and Clare and we reckon the world will too. Throwing Up will play the following dates in the Summer with more shows to be announced in the very near future.
