The Carbonators 3rd Album is finally here!! NUMBER ONE is easily their best work to date – reflected in how amazing they’ve been the last few times they’ve played. A unified force to be reckoned with, 5 songs that take you through a journey through their lives, at times honest, surreal, funny and emotional. I fell in love with this record the first time I heard it & I hope you do too. Available as a limited edition cassette with download or on all your usual digital streaming and downloading sites. Check it out – BUY/LISTEN HERE – http://smarturl.it/

We were asked by The Sick Of The Fringe to put on a gig as part of their festival this year to showcase some of the best music from the burgeoning learning disabled and London’s DIY music scenes. We’ve got The Carbonators, Joy-Rides, Richard Rock n Roll and 2Decks and his band for a gig of wild euphoric abandon, future rock n roll and accessible, integrated music for everyone! An open, forward-thinking event with four exciting, unpredictable groups removing disabling barriers for audience and performer alike. You can buy tickets and check out all the info below…

It is a film about Tom Spicer, who has Fragile X Syndrome, and has spent his adult life in a residential care home; ignored, for the most part, by his siblings, Kate and Will. He has only ever asked them for one thing, to meet Lars Ulrich, drummer with Metallica. The film follows the three siblings as Kate and Will decide to break their brother Tom out of his home in a sleepy English town and take him to America to find Lars.

Our next film screening happens tomorrow at DIY Space For London! Heavy Load is a film about the punk band of the same name from Brighton. One of those great bands that not only shouted about injustices but also did something about it by starting a charity supporting people with learning disabilities to have the right to a social life – Stay Up Late.
The film critic Mark Kermode recently made a short on his favourite music documentaries of the 21st century where he said “If Heavy Load isn’t in your top 5 music documentaries of the 21st century I’m not interested!”

We’re over halfway through the Daniel Wakeford tour now and it’s been going brilliantly so far. He’s played shows in Bradford, Todmorden, Salford, Sheffield, Glasgow and had a day off in Leeds to be interviewed by BBC Radio Leeds and visit the Beat It music sessions. The crowds have been great and loads of autographs have been signed!
There has also been some great press come out around the tour, including an article in today’s i newspaper. You’ll have to be quick to grab a copy!
Daniel was also interviewed by the fine folks at Attitude Is Everything about the tour, which you can read here and Richard was interviewed by the artist and film-maker, Matthew Kennedy about Constant Flux which you can read here.
