FINALLY…THE DEBUT GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY ALBUM
Most “music industry professionals”, aspiring rock stars and profit-driven record labels usually adhere to some kind of standardised industry rules. Many spend their time on board rooms talking “strategy”, “marketing synthesis” and “brand awareness”; how terribly sterile. No us cowpunks tho, consider this the “press release”.
Thankfully the most dangerous band in Scottish punk are not aspiring rock stars, but natural born demonslayers, and your friendly neighbourhood vegan posse ain’t your standard record label. MTAT exists to expel existential misery; “LET’S GO GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY” by Goodbye Blue Monday the perfect distillation of everything since inception.
Seven years of labour together, Goodbye Blue Monday turned down offers from bigger and major labels to stay with the home team, against my advice. There were deals on offer that I’d have strongly lobbied in favour of were they offered to UNIFORMS. We could never have made this record but.
Sean’s loyalty to DIY, independence and the family was rewarded by being ROBBED for the second time this year and all this gear STOLEN. This include all acoustic and electric guitars, pedal board, electronics, Orange Amplifiers head we scored courtesy of Rainbow Music; awhin. We’ll have them sorted for Manchester Punk Festival and the Rad Apples Dundee gig on April 22nd, but they’ll be goosed for tour.
What man reap is what man sow and once again we find ourselves deliriously in up to our necks in shite, how glorious. Truly, it seems like there’s never any other way, Sisyphus ever pushing the rock. One day, they’ll say “fuck the rock” and just horse it doon the other side.
All illusions of impartiality aside, this is one of the greatest pieces of work MTAT has ever been involved in. I couldn’t be more proud of my friends and what they’ve created together. The absolute best thing folx can do to help is BUY THE ALBUM, share it, and encourage all your pals to do the same. There ain’t no PR budgets in this basement.
“LET’S GO GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY BY GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY” is available for download NOW from the band and MTAT. CDs are on their way and will be available at MPF, vinyl preorder still live with expected summer delivery. Please help us spread the seitanic gospel!
