THE DIRTY CONTACTS
“The World’s End” b/w “When You Stop Loving Me”
(State Records THS030)
Brand new limited edition 7″ on heavyweight vinyl only 500 copies pressed!
Founded in 2017AD from the Hastings Fratcave stable, The Dirty Contacts include past and/or present members of The X-Men, The Dentists, The Cannibals, Armitage Shanks and many more. The five musicians comprise three writers, two illustrators, an electronics genius, at least two adults and even a parent!
They caught the attention of State Records supremo Mole when recording at his all-analogue North Down Sound studio in Folkestone, South East Kent. The harvest of a fruitful day is this debut 45″the A-side, “The World’s End”, a nightmare allegorical vision of something gone horribly wrong, the B-side a live favourite Billy Childish-penned classic “When You Stop Loving Me”, originally recorded by Thee Headcoats. Both numbers were recorded live to 8-track tape, without overdubs.
Believing that the world requires more Seeds, Kinks, Mummies and Beefheart-influenced acts than it currently enjoys, these mild-mannered chums sure make one hell of a scuzzed-up racket when they plug in…but the kids dig it and we hope you do too!
Packaged in a super cool full colour double-sided fold-over card sleeve!
