EP Now On Sale at Bomp! in the U.S., More Airplay, and Some Reviews

Great news: If you’re in the U.S., you can find the new EP of Bowie/Action covers at Bomp! online for a cool $10.

A big thanks to DJ Penny Lane over at Punks in Parkas for playing our cover of “Can’t Help Thinking About Me” last month. You can hear the episode here.

We’re also grateful for some new reviews, including one in Shindig!, one written by Ian McCann for the forthcoming Record Collector, one by Henry Schneider for Exposé Online, and another by Jonathan Levitt for Blurt. We’re in the process of updating our Reviews page, but in the meantime, the wonderful Fruits de Mer has compiled several write-ups of our EP and of other new/must-hear FdM releases on their reviews page.

We’ll be back with more news soon.

We’re excited to announce our latest collaboration with Fruits de Mer—crustacean 73, a four-song EP of songs by The Action and ’60s-era Bowie:

Can’t Help Thinking About Me (Bowie)
Look At The View (The Action)

Let Me Sleep Beside You (Bowie)
Strange Roads (The Action)

If you’re part of FdM’s members club, you probably heard “Can’t Help Thinking About Me” on the end-of-the-year (2015) exclusive giveaway album Changes: Songs Written By David Bowie. (Who could have ever imagined we’d be living without him now?)

Since the release of our cover of that track, Gideon Coe has been kind enough to play it on his Radio 6 show three times. (You can listen to the Peter Tosh in Concert show for 10 more days.) And just yesterday, Tom Ravenscroft, sitting in for Gideon Coe, played our version of “Can’t Help Thinking About Me” right between The Move and The Make-Up. We couldn’t be happier to be included in the lineup. You can listen to the broadcast for another 29 days. We’re second from the top of the playlist.

Thanks, also, to the following internet radio stations for including us in your lineup:

The Sunrise Ocean Bender

Green Arrow Radio

Andy Lewis’ Soho Radio

Pet Sounds Podcast
