On April 20th Invada Records will release the brand new Crippled Black Phoenix album titled "200 Tons Of Bad Luck".

The track listing is as follows :
Burnt Reynolds
Rise Up And Fight
Time Of Ye Life / Born For Nothing /Paranoid Arm Of Narcoleptic Empire
Crossing The Bar
A Real Bronx Cheer
A Hymn For A Lost Soul
A Lack Of Common Sense
I Am Free - Today I Perished

Taken From The press release "Now continuing on the 'Endtime Ballads' theme, the band are ever expanding and have shown they're not afraid to stick out their neck to create something timeless and decadent, progressive, powerfull music. Guitars coated with strings and piano, striking with the most emotional yet subtle sounds theat could drage forever across a universe, seeming somewhat at odds with the current climate. With songs which revisit a time this modern world has forgotten, lifting the listener out of reality, or songs that just captivate sheer sadness, the impact that haunts GBP's music hooks the inner emotions , only felt with the passing of something, its the soundtrack to saying goodbye."


As well as the 200 Tons Of Bad Luck album, Crippled Black Phoenix will also release a limited edition 2 CD Box Set version titled "The Ressurectionists & Night Raider". This will essentially feature all of the songs from the " 200 Tons" album + a whole load of exclusive bonus material never heard before. The artwork will be different from "200 Tons" and we're hoping to have some images of the Box Set very soon. Please bare in mind this will be a limited format and we're not expecting it to be around for long..

The track listing is as follows.
CD One (The Ressureectionists)
Burnt Reynolds
Rise Up And Fight
Crossing The Bar
200 Tons Of Bad Luck
Please Do Not Stare Here
Song For The Loved
A Hymn For A Lost Soul
Human Nature Dictates The Downfall Of Humans
CD Two (Night Raider)
Time Of Ye Life / Born For Nothing / Paranoid Arm Of Narcoleptic Empire
Bat Stack
Along Where The Wind Blows
Onward Ever Downwards
A lack Of Common Sense
Trust No One
I Am Free - Today I Perished

TALIBAM VS PEEESSEYE self titled collaboration. May release

Talibam (pictured) and Peeesseye (PSI) have teamed up to produce one hell of an album for Invada. Just shy of 50 mins, the guys have delivered an epic piece of music that simply cannot be described in any human language. The trademark free experimental jazz sounds are present throughout this piece - BUT do not let that fool you. Some extreme noise and haunting (almost black metal sounding) vocals make this project unique. There really is nothing like this available at the moment.. Released in May on both CD and Vinyl formats with the vinyl having a bonus track. Talibam and Peeesseye will be touring this record around May time, any interested promoters please contact us at and we will forward details on to relevant parties...

Thought Forms are Guy Metcalfe / Charlie Romijn / Deej Dhariwal.
Invada will be releasing their self titled debut album in May. Thought Forms hail from Melksham in the South West of England. They have built up an impressive following particularly in Bristol and Bath over the past few years as well as playing dates around the U.K and the U.S.
We are ecstatic to be finally releasing this record after seeing the trio live so many times. Musically TF have taken influence from past masters such as Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Loop etc but their sound encompasses influence from modern experimental noise bands like The Skaters, Double Leopards, Emeralds etc. It's no use merely listing a load of bands that have influence on TF though. Check out their MySpace and judge for yourself.
TF's will be playing New York City in May to launch the album as well as touring the UK with Team Brick shortly on their return. Any interested promoters please contact and we will put you directly in touch.

Gonga back in Studio for a few days...

Late last week, the Gonga boys went back into State Of Art Studio's to record some demo's. The object of the project was to simply re-group and see what came naturally... After 3 days and a few mini-disks worth of music the result was extremely positive. The new material we heard pushes boundaries a lot further then we were expecting. Obviously the down-tuned classic Gonga riffs were present; but there was also a lot of instrumental experimentation and almost a different energy. All kinds of comparisons were being banded around (mainly from me it has to be said), including early Soundgarden, Fantomas, The Melvins, maybe even a bit of Ulver..  Hopefully i can persuade the chaps to give us a few mins worth of music to put on here.. keep checking back over the next week or so...
