Listening Post

Blacklisters have bottled their brutal live experience and put it into a new EP for Too Pure Singles Club

Listen to 'Drag'

Anyone who has seen Blacklisters live will know what a ferocious, twisted force the band can be. They’ve distilled that energy into two albums already – their 2012 debut ‘BLKLSTRS’ and ‘Adult’ back in 2015.

Now, as the Leeds band start crushing ideas together for their third – Steven Hodson from USA Nails and Kong recently joined the band, replacing bassist Owen Griffiths – they’ve recorded a handful of tracks for an upcoming release on the monthly Too Pure Singles Club.

Cut to tape live at Yorkshire’s Greenmount Studios, the EP, ‘Dart’, will be released on 29 September.

‘Drag’ is one of the tracks from it, and here it is. Not for the fainted hearted.

Already this year, Too Pure Singles Club have shared releases from the likes of Drahla and Unqualified Nurse Band.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
