October 2nd. Two new releases on Wrong Speed. Cassette / digital. Keep a close eye on the WS Bandcamp page.
Thee Alcoholics. This arrived in my inbox fully formed. A classic sounding noise rock record like you’d have heard in ’89. 25 minutes long. Ten songs. Unknown line up. South East London.
From Cosmic Carnage – “THEE ALCOHOLICS absolutely floored me. It took me back to the days of bands like Todd and Men of Unitus mixed with a Pharoah Overlord kinda’ vibe. Motorik filth!”
The Pohl album is equally monstrous. This Bristol duo destroy. There were epic plans for this but life got in the way. I thought it had to be heard in one form or another. I hate good sounds being lost to time. FFO: Ty Segall / Killdozer.
From Birthday Cake For Breakfast: “Listening to first single ‘Parasite‘, I closed my eyes and thought about nothing else. A word soon began to materialise again and again in the dark fog – ‘RIPPER’! Folks – listen for yourself, you’ll likely be of the opinion that this ripper rips!”
Both out on Friday October 2nd. No presell. These will be in stock. 50 x cassette of each album, a fiver each. Pay what you want download. No messing. Cheers.
Wrong Speed is releasing the 13th Hey Colossus album. It’s a 2xLP / 2xCD, 75 minute long, focused, monster. Here’s the first song that’s available to check out, feat. Mark Lanegan.

Two of my favourite tapes from the last decade. Acidliner came out 2019, Bass Clef in 2011. I’m pressing them on very limited vinyl, 100 of each. I’m having one, there will be 99 spare.
Originally released in 2011 on cassette on the Magic+Dreams label. This album has been played endlessly at the Wrong Speed HQ for all that time. It’s so damn good. A love letter to the 90s rave scene?
I wanted it on vinyl so here it is. This album will not be available digitally.
This album flew under many radars when it was released by the New Atlantis imprint in 2019. It crashed into mine. Was a top ten album for me last year. Ambient Autechre?
100 vinyl, limited press. So excited to get this.
There is one. Go HERE to get it.
It looks like this:
