I just heard from Nick that the Fists records have arrived today at Hello Thor HQ, free at last from the French fishermen's blockades and box fresh in Nottingham.
It's going to be really great to finally see & hear them. The test pressings sound AMAZING, so with the brilliant cover and proper label they will be even better.
It's been so exciting seeing them start to get picked up by magazines and the radio... artrocker, BBC6 on Steve Lamacq's show, XFM... can't wait to see what's next! There's something really strange about hearing a song you are so familiar with in that official radio setting, it sounds really new and different.
Anyway, here is the video for Cockatoo by Fists, available now on vinyl or to download from www.hellothor.com. The video has been created by the very talented Dan Toporowski, a wonderful animator and visual artist:
