This was supposed to be posted this morning, but I got a little distracted playing in the snow..
Victor Menace!!! - 'Thrice The Party' is available today, exclusively from this website. It's just three tracks until we get them back in the studio, but running to a whopping 18 minutes you've got plenty to dance to!
It's available on CD in a 100% recycled card wallet, and also as a digital download from next month.
You can click here to preview the tracks.

Although we seem to be suspiciously modest with our news posts, there have been plenty of goings on and letting the New Year in without an update wouldn't do at all.
For starters, we have this here fancy new website for you to admire, and although many of the new features he has been building aren't visible yet, James assures me it has a much improved rear end.. so expect more soon!
Secondly, Thrice The Party by Victor Menace!!! will be released on the 2nd of Februray, and is now available for pre-order.. and it's fucking brilliant.
Today we are giving two new tracks intended for my second album their finishing touches, and although we're excited about them (and this is a season of sharing), they remain top secret and you can't hear them, so bugger off!
By the way, it is now easier and cheaper than ever to bugger off with a copy of Worm Food, so bugger off!
Lots of love, Ruth and James x

The follow up to last year's successful 'Folk Rising' and the phenomenal success of the 'That's Proper Folk!' sampler. This time 23 artists are included on two CDs, reflecting the growing momentum behind the current folk revival and features many artists who are at the start of their careers but who are still attracting considerable critical acclaim and media interest.
Back in May we signed a distribution deal with Proper (the UK's largest independent), which means that you can now buy our releases from your favourite independent record stores, as well as all the major chains like HMV and Amazon, but try and keep that to yourselves :)
Worm Food is also now available from practically all of the digital download services, including iTunes in DRM free format.
So, it's never been easier to grab yourself a copy!
Soon (when I manage to write the rest of the code) we'll be launching our very own digital download service, so you'll be able to buy high quality MP3s direct from us.. all in good time.

Since we finished building the studio it's been non-stop recording at River Rat! Some exciting noises (and some nasty ones) have been shaking the walls here..
We produced an EP for Morricone-inspired rockers Death Cats, an EP of brand new songs from the Tofu Love Frogs who are officially back to eat your babies, as well as the first ever recordings of Victor Menace!!! - some (including me) said it couldn't be done, but with acrobatics and occasional death defying stunts their first CD has been made!
It doesn't stop there though.. Nathan Ball has an EP almost finished, Ruth Theodore is prolific as ever recording brand new material which is really exciting, Alejandro Toledo and the Magic Tombolinos tracked 9 songs before going to Poland to record vocals, and Pintsized has been using downtime to confuse the hell out of the studio equipment with a soldering iron and sticky-backed plastic.
We have other exciting announcements too, but I'll bite my tongue for now.
On the 22nd of June Victor Menace!!! will be playing with the Tofu Love Frogs at Lea Valley Festival.. keep your eye on the events page for actual details since they're a bit thin at the moment, but it promises to be a fantastic day out!
The eponymously titled debut from Hackney’s favourite “Ninja Folk” band, contains eight characterful and original instrumental pieces, running to a whopping 57 minutes.
The compelling and anticipated second album by Ruth Theodore.
Four brand new recordings from Nathan Ball, including 'Footprints' and 'McDonalds For The Mind'.
The long overdue debut release from the world's greatest Ninja Folk band.
13 tracks of beautifully twisted, political and personal mayhem.
All CD and Vinyl artwork is printed on 100% recycled card. Packaging is also made from 100% recycled card, and sealed with rat saliva.
