Horrorpalooza? and other news

We're the last with this news, but The Horrors are set to play two London shows, on the 5th and 6th of December, with Ipso Facto and Electricity In Our Homes in the support slots. The shows are 14+ and will take place in Electrowerkz, Islington, which is what people like to call an 'intimate venue' - that is, it's nice and small. It should be a fantastic show.

What we want to know is whether this is the 'circus freaks' event the band have been promising us since the summer. Is this Horrorpalooza? You can rely on The New Thing to be your ear to the ground on this one, now that our news radar is back up and running. Watch this space.

In related news, Ipso Facto have let loose their video for their single 'Harmonise', to be released on 17th November. You can watch it here - it's very nice, especially if you were in doubt as to whether grainy black-and-white footage could be psychedelic.

Other New News was that Faris Badwan (if you don't know who he is, why are you reading this?) will be producing the next EP release from Hatcham Social. He's already designed a cover for them, so obviously he's just working his way up. The talented Mr Badwan also recently displayed some of his sketches in a London gallery, so perhaps we can expect a second exhibition in the near future.
