Scary Clown Presents.. their First Five Years DIY Punk Compilation Album

Scary Clown First Five Years album

Phew it’s been a learning curve for us three old punks, but we’ve finally put up the pre-order for our 33 track, 82 minutes, double coloured vinyl album; “The First Five Years”.  As it says on the tin, the tracks are from bands who have played during our first five years putting on DIY punk gigs.  That’s 33 bands from over 110 so far – we were overwhelmed by the generosity of the bands in our scene – they rushed to get us tracks, and 12 of them have never been released before – or special versions of released tracks.  A few bands (Matildas Scoundrels, Pizzatramp, and The Raging Nathans) even went into the studio to record something special.  Copies are available to pre-order in our shop here.

Thanks to Matt Cade who took the supplied tracks and mastered us a vinyl version, and Aston at Key Productions/Boss Tunage records who got the thing made for us!   We are just finishing off a 16 page photobook (A4 page size), and will be posting out the copies from 28th Jan 2019.  We also have a release party – a huge 6 band gig at Mama Liz’s in Stamford, featuring; Airstream Futures + The Human Project + Crocodile God + Petrol Boys + Mean Caesar + Carol Hodge.  Tickets for that are £8 and are on sale now – it will be popular because of the great line-up and the album release.

First Five Years Album Is Coming!

Well we are bloody well doing this!  The Scary Clown Presents… has pulled together 33 tracks from 33 bands to make our dream come true, a double vinyl album featuring bands who have all played our gigs over the first five years.  There are more we’d loved to have included, but there was limited space (82 minutes all in) – so it had to be first come first served.  We are VERY pleased with the results, thanks to Matt Cade for putting together the vinyl mixes for us, and Aston at Boss Tunage for getting the manufacturing sorted.   These things do take time – we hope to have the physical copies end of Jan, hopefully for our Airstream Futures gig on 27th Jan at Mama Liz’s.  We will keep people informed of course!  The DIY Punk album features some never before released tracks, including one from Wonk Unit, the undisputed kings of our scene.  We even had some bands go into the studio to record something special just for us, not just here in the UK but also in the USA!

Check the video below – it may well feature an exclusive track from the album… those crazy Pizzatramp boys!

The Scary Clown Presents… a DIY Punk Compilation Album!

Scary Clown Presents team album announcement

Bloody exciting news alert!!!

Our punk collective has been thinking about extending our reach by creating a small independent record label for some time – and to kick that off we’ve decided to start with a compilation album, entitled “The First Five Years”.  We’ve had over 100 bands play at our gigs over the last five years (we celebrate that 5th birthday at our next gig at Mama Liz’s, which also celebrates their 10th year of being a cracking independent music venue.

So SCP0001 “The First Five Years” is well underway, with almost all the bands & tracks agreed (30ish in total), our music producer guru is in place, and we want all tracks with him before the end of October!

We’ve got some of the cream of the DIY punk scene on this banger, and in many cases it’s never released tracks!  We’ve got quotes in for the manufacture & pressing – we are going for top quality production values on our first baby, no expense spared, no bank account left in the black.  We are talking a double vinyl gatefold LP and a full to bursting CD!

Artwork mock-ups are underway (we’ve got a ton of great photos thanks to scene photograph Mark Richards and local hotshot Pawel!)… and a rough schedule is in place too keep us honest.  We may have the best punk rock Xmas pressie of all time on our hands!

Cheers to all the bands coming in on this adventure with us!
