Waco Wrangler / Agitation Limited to 250 copies on translucent blue vinyl. We're putting out this 7" from London's Waco - first time on vinyl for two of the tracks from a limited edition tape-only release on Venn Records. Already given Radio One love by the likes of Dan Carter and Zane Lowe, they're no strangers to Kingston and have played for us supporting Single Mothers, Slaves and Bangers - we think they're pretty special. They mix punk rock with a dash of garage rock'n roll and alt.rock and with an style no-one else has. There's special something in this band for fans of Fidlar, Great Cynics, Art Brut, Slaves and Pure Love. we're putting out this Waco 7" cos they're fucking rad A photo posted by Banquet Records (@banquetrecords) on Feb 10, 2016 at 5:24am PST Banquet Records 7"

The Lagan Let's Do It Again Excellent local beer-soaked Celtic folk-punk band The Lagan return with a 5 track EP, following up their Banquet-released album. You know us, we're not really a studio band. We just like to get out and play. We had planned on writing a full album, but we had been kicking a few songs around for a few years so we thought we'd put them out and concentrate on writing an actual album. Maybe. So, here you go. Another snapshot of our live set. Banquet Records CD

Recorded in a studio on an island in the Thames, the second Young Romance record sees the band experimenting with a more visceral and raw sound.
