Spike Fuck The Smackwave EP Newly signed to Partisan Records (IDLES, Fontaines D.C., Cigarettes After Sex), Spike Fuck first came to prominence as a striking figure in the explosive flourishing of musical creativity that has recently occurred in Melbourne. Partisan are releasing ‘The Smackwave EP’ physically for the first time including the bonus track “Body By Crystal”. Her debut album is due for release in 2020. Drawing from a difficult period of heroin addiction, Spike creates beautifully infectious, Triffids-tinged rock and roll songs which describe, with unflinching candour and white hot urgency, the peaks and valleys of that lifestyle, recalling at times the febrile music scene of 80’s New York, and cult heroes like Jim Carroll and Johnny Thunders Partisan Records 12"

Idles Mercedes Marxist A new 7" single from the incredible Kingston visitors IDLES, following on from their 2018 album Joy As An Act Of Resistance. "Mercedes Marxist was a strange beast for us, after Rottweiler, it was the first song we wrote for Joy as an Act of Resistance. I was pissed off at what I was and where I was: I was sofa surfing on the weekends and spending the weeks looking after my mum. My life balance was way off and this song reflects just how useless I felt. It was me at my worst and without any buoyancy it became catharsis. It was the last splurge from Brutalism so we admitted it. I like it now. Joe x" Partisan Records 7"
