The fourth Used Vinyl Club release. A split EP this time around. 4 tracks each from Meow Meow! (Marko Magill, Anna Maconald and Andy Maton – so the best bits of SSS, Down and Outs and Fight Fight Fight) and DoubleDoublePlusGood (Tony Keenan, Graham Jones and Andy Donovan – the worst bits of Tokyo Adventures, Voo and Elle s’appelle trying their best!).
This will be available to download for FREE from Friday 4th of May. Also, that night will be the fouth Used Vinyl Club show featuring both bands playing live.
We asked Meow Meow! for some words:
So, Meow Meow! had a chat, and we are pretty sure we started out in 2004. We can't be sure if it was definitely in 2004 and there is no way of knowing when in 2004. It's not that we don't care, but more that we are dead forgetful. I think if we did all this again we'd write more stuff down.
2004 does sound like a long time ago, but its also fair to say that MM are in no way prolific. We meet up sporadically, and gig infrequently. We aren't lazy, it's just that other stuff gets in the way. This approach means we've hardly built up an archive of material - a download only single on http://www.wiaiwya.com/ in 2010, followed by a track on their Xmas record of 2011. That's why it's super nice for us to be involved in the Used Vinyl Club split with DoubleDoublePlusGood. Meow Meow ! don't see much of the world, so the opportunity to go out on a Friday night - well, how could we pass that up? Big props to UVC and DD+G for having us along.
A couple of important things about Meow Meow!
i) I only just found out about the '!' at the end of the band name and for that I thank UVC - I thought there were 2, and then I thought over time it had completely fallen off.
ii) I reckon we are named after a club in Portland that Mark liked the name of, and not the fertilizer drug that causes men to irreparably damage themselves*
iii) We have a strict caffeine rule - if it's after 6pm tea has to be decaffeinated** This is ironic given the confusion over point (ii).
See you on the 4th
