NB WE’RE SORRY THAT THERE IS NO APOSTROPHE ON THE SWEET ABOVE. PLEASE SEND ALL CORRESPONDENCE TO SWIZZELS MATLOW LTD.
We’re going to be hosting a party in the fair city of Glasgow on St Valentine’s Day. What better location than where parts of the man himself are buried in the Southern Necropolis? We’ll remove the nightmare of this annual faux-holiday (Where special can I take my beloved?; I hate being single on Valentine’s Day) and make sure that you have a flipping great time dancing away to some cracking music. It’s called Kid Canaveral’s Lumber Party (do you see what we did there?) and it will be a gig and a club night held in Stereo on Renfield Street Lane on Friday 14th February 2014. This is to celebrate the release of our new single Who Would Want to be Loved? on hot pink heart-shaped vinyl on Lost Map Records. A copy of this record (plus download code) is included in the price of your ticket. Incredible! We’ll be announcing who’ll be playing in the coming weeks, but make sure you get your ticket now as they’re sure to go fast.
For those of you attending from outwith the Glasgow area/who are not lucky enough to have been raised in its glorious environs, perhaps a little translation is necessary:
A lumber is a person one meets at a dance or party and with whom one establishes an amorous relationship.
e.g. You’ll have no chance of getting a lumber if you act like a sexist moron.
There’ll be all sorts of fun things on the night to keep you entertained, so get your tickets ASAP!
