Bombed Out and artist news

Tagged: Split 7" Collection
The second split 7” to come from the Bombed Out stable will feature Leeds all-stars The Dauntless Elite (who, as you all know by now, feature Andrew and Lee from Joe Ninety and Steve and Joe from Fig. 4.0) and SCHC protagonists, Jets Vs Sharks.
Not only that but the split will be a collaboration in the truest sense of the word… The Dauntless Elite weigh in with live-favourite “I am Ninja, My Life is Lonely and Difficult” and Jets Vs Sharks do likewise with “Carved from Black Marble” . Things get interesting though with the other two tracks: one, “Kill this Town” features music recorded by The Elite and vocals from Jets while final track, “Sponsored Silence” reverses this idea with Jets supplying the music and The Elite the vocal track.
If this isn’t enough the 7” comes on colour “nuclear” vinyl and is wrapped in a gorgeous painting by Sean Mahan (who's producted artwork for the likes of Twelve Hour Turn, Floor and North Lincoln) as you can see to the right.
Only 600 copies are being pressed so we recommend pre-ordering to be sure of picking one up. Cost is £4 post paid in the UK, see here for details on how to pay and get in touch if ordering from outside the UK.
