The Amazing Snakeheads - Testifying Time / Truth Serum (Domino Records)

Snapped up by Domino records, and with the NME and the rest of the music press deservedly slavering after them, The Amazing Snakeheads are no longer one of Glasgow's best kept secrets. Their debut 7" single 'Testifying Time' (recorded in Green Door) is out now, and is one minute and four seconds of pure distilled maximum rock'n'roll which has had the likes of Zane Lowe and Steve Lamacq hitting rewind and playing multiple times in one show.

Golden Teacher - Bells From The Deep End (Optimo Music)

Starting life as a Green Door studio experimental collaboration between analogue house duo 'Silk Cut' and Avant-noise makers 'Ultimate Thrush' these guys managed to melt the internet switchboard and sell out their debut vinyl EP in the space of 2 days. Never fear though, Optimo have plans to repress the vinyl for those of you unlucky enough not to get your hands on a copy the first time around.

Nice review from Juno records here..

Green Door News - July 2012

Here's some splendid new additions brought kicking and screaming into the world of music from our humble little analogue studio.

Some top notch afro-acid-disco for a limited time only (we're guessing as we haven't done the final mixes yet and this is probably going to be snapped up for a vinyl release). The reference mixes for the Green Door Disco band featuring Members of Silk Cut, Blue Sabbath Black Fiji, and Ultimate Thrush are available for free download from http://powerpuke.bandcamp.com/album/green-door-disco-band-great-river-demos

Marc Riley favourites Glasgow / Manchester band Post have just released the first single from their excellent new album. Check out the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2JEPnae1fYA

We finally got the opportunity to record perennial Green Door favourites Gummy Stumps, and the exquisitely tasty results have been released in an extremely limited dub plate box set but are also available for download from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSPh2i2Aflk where you can check out their Green Door holiday video.

Wife Vs Secretary also have a fan in Marc Riley, and just fresh from doing a session on his radio show have put up a video for the rather wonderful RA RA Girls which you can view at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LOt5iW-J54

Debut EP of savvy immaculately well dressed pop recorded just last month from the extremely talented Saint Max is available for download from http://saintmax.bandcamp.com/

Jacob Yates & The Pearly Gate Lock Pickers - Luck

“Dirty, but melodic, great. The Yates’ know how rock ‘n’ roll should sound!” – Kowalskiy

“Single of the Fortnight. 5 stars. ‘Can’t Stop’ is all tumbling drums, twangy chords and plonking piano from the ex-Uncle John and Whitelock boys. They call it ‘doom-wop, and who are we to argue?” – The List

“Outrageous Glasgow Rock ‘n’ Roll teleported from the Fifties dance halls and replete with the colourful language and humour of the city...You will not be dissappointed“ - Artrocker

"Tinged with the street preaching madness of an early years Nick Cave, Lovatt‘s gritted storytelling and red raw delivery is truely one of the cities most exhilarating thrills" – Drowned In Sound

"’Can’t Stop’ will invite comparisons with Nick Cave. There’s a definitely exciting air of menace about Yates’ vocal and the crunching garage-rock guitar riffs and bluesy piano give the song an unstoppable energy” – The 405
