Like we mentioned in our previous post, our guitarist Hillary has her own personal musical project called BLOOD OF THE BULL.
Her music is really melodic, simple but not simplistic, and has a dark, brooding sense of foreboding bubbling just under the surface. To these ears she follows in the lineage of people like Mary Timony/Helium, Lois, The Spinanes and Heavens To Betsy, recalling the early days of the Kill Rock Stars and K record labels. It's great stuff!

The debut Blood Of The Bull ep has just been released on WINNING SPERM PARTY and is available to download for free, so there's no reason to not have a listen! Rory, who plays drums in Blood Of The Bull, also plays in THE BALLAD OF MABLE WONG (alongside Laurie from ULTIMATE THURSH). They've also had their debut ep released on WSP too, so get that too!!
Hillary and Rory are playing tomorrow night at The Captains Rest in Glasgow (also on the bill are our label-mates LOUISE McVEY & CRACKS IN THE CONCRETE, who have just had their debut ep released on OPTIMO MUSIC) - they don't get the chance to play live so often, probably because we swallow up almost all of Hillary's time musically, so those of you who are able, you should make it down to the show!

Have you noticed? It's Christmas.

To celebrate the day when we all get together and give each other things (and the day the pope got a doing) we've got some presents to offer you by way of FREE MUSIC.
Here's a live mp3 of "Death Of You" by Comanechi (featuring VSO, Andy and Sinead from Divorce = COMANECHIVORCE!!) live at their album launch from December 11th in London in all it's filthy, fetid glory!!! DOWNLOAD!!!
Also, don't forget you can still get the live bootleg of our set with Deerhoof from Edinburgh on December 8th at the Winning Sperm Party website -- GET IT HERE!!!
Winning Sperm Party have also unleashed FOUR NEW RELEASES TODAY!! Among them is the debut EP by BLOOD OF THE BULL, which is our guitarist Hillary's own personal musical project. Her own songs are minimal, melodic and brooding, sort of harking back to the early days of Kill Rock Stars/K Records (Lois, The Spinanes, Mary Timony etc), sung by Hillary herself. She's a talented lady!! As with all W.S.P. releases, they're available to download for ABSOLUTELY FREE!! GOTTA CATCH THEM ALL!!!
Hope you all got what you wanted and some of you got what you needed. See you at hogmanay!!!

We're extremely honoured to have been asked by the esteemed Twitch & Wilkes of OPTIMO (ESPACIO) to perform at their epic Hogmanay party at The Fruitmarket in Glasgow!!
It's known as a fact that the Optimo Hogmanay party is BY FAR the most hedonistic, excessive and outright FUN night happening on the night in Glasgow, if not Scotland!! Amazing music, amazing people, amazing party!!!!!
They always put together excellent line-ups for each year too, with the 2009 edition is not looking shabby in the slightest. Sets from DRUMS OF DEATH, HUDSON MOHAWKE, THE NIALLIST and Optimo themselves will be bringing in the new year and new decade. Regarding the Scottish-centric line-up, Optimo themselves explain that "As we leave the 2000s, we felt that it was a good idea to celebrate some of the immense talent that has come out of our fine city in recent years and invite some of the best artists this city has produced to come and perform." High praise indeed, making it all the more flattering that we've been included on the bill!! We'll do our best to not ruin yr buzz too much...!!!
Buy tickets HERE and HERE!!! Facebook info is HERE
