R*E*P*E*A*T Records Press Release
A Limited Edition Translucent Purple Vinyl Single
Chris T-Ts "Tomorrow Morning
Cosy Cosy's "Drive Drive"
In aid of Love Music Hate Racism
R*E*P*E*A*T Records is proud to announce that the next of its limited
edition coloured vinyl split seven inch singles is to be a distinctly
pop tinged affair, starring folk-punk-pop maestro Chris T-T and Cambridge
girl-boy-bangy-wangy sensations Cosy Cosy.
Chris T-T's 'Tomorrow Morning' was a key track on his 2003 album 'London
Is Sinking', with The Guardian describing it as a tremulous, scratchy,
beautifully crafted song that pauses to observe that as he faded
into old age, Conan Doyle believed in fairies, before veering
into grandeur and evaporating. But Chris and the band have rebuilt
the song from scratch for this R.E.P.E.A.T. split single, giving it
a chunk more welly and a rich psychedelic paint-job.
Chris said: "Tomorrow Morning is a song about love, not a love
song. It's supposed to be reality TV in the verse, then an 80s acid
trip in the chorus. I think the Conan Doyle bit is the best 2 lines
of lyrics I've written."
He's referring to the lines As he faded into old age, Conan Doyle
believed in fairies, / I fell in love on April Fool's Day, I dug a hole
so deep it scares me.
The Chris T-T Band will play 4 headline shows around this release:
Thur 23 Sep BRIGHTON Komedia Theatre, Fri 24 Sep LONDON venue to be
announced (because we haven't scored a gig yet)
Sat 25 Sep CAMBRIDGE Portland Arms (R.E.P.E.A.T. single launch), Tue
28 Sep LIVERPOOL Prohibition
These are the last full T-T Band shows of 2004, before they retreat
into One Cat studio in Stamford Hill to record Chris's 5th (and final
London-themed) album, due for release in Spring 2005.
Sharing this see through seven inched purple delight will be new guitar
pop sensations Cosy Cosy. If you thought that pop music that could make
you leap around the room, sing along, smile from ear to ear and play
it again and again was dead, then you need to take a listen to this.
Cosy Cosy formed when Bassist/singer Jo Duvet of Agebaby (now Ciccone)
and The Secret Hairdresser fame, The Buzz and Product vocalist and guitar-star
Dominiquepun and Drummer and professional John Cusack/Edward Norton
look-alike Phil climbed into a washing machine with a fabric-conditioning
dose of Blondie, New Order, The Pixies, Velvet Underground and the Jesus
and Mary Chain
and emerged as a Cosycosy duvet. They assembled
a formidable arsenal of spring-loaded pop songs, each one bristling
with sweet, spine-chilling harmonies, scuzzy guitars, taut and snapping
drums and yeah-ooh-yeahs aplenty, and launched their Cosycosy mission
A few months and a bunch of sweaty, moshy, happy gigs later, theyve
managed to accumulate a big collection of loyal fans, an appearance
on the Love Music Hate Music compilation Fear of a Black Kennett,
several John Peel plays and live appearances with the likes of The Applicators
and The Exiles. Now with this single they invite you to get Cosy, before
they return to the studio to record some new material and play two live
dates (more to follow):
Friday 17th September - The Dublin Castle, London; Saturday 25th September
- Single Launch, Portland Arms, Cambridge
