Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the German Shepherd Records Newsletter. This week
The lead track from February’s Night Operations album “Advantage” is now available on You Tube. You can purchase digital or CD versions of the album via our Bandcamp Page.
Anticipating their new single Bouquet of Dead Crows have let loose a video of the killer tune “Bunched Up Bradley”. It is released 18th May and this Star Wars Themed intro and in studio footage lets you enjoy the new tune in all its glory. An album is due in September and the band are playing a series of dates in Manchester, Newcastle and Bedford in early June.
Many thanks to Paul Forshaw for recording the whole of Drink and Drive’s set at AATMA on May 4th. The band are in fine form and if you haven’t got to see them live or bought the album yet maybe this will tempt you?
Boz Hayward has released another video to compliment the Tennessee Ten album. The wonderfully quirky “My Little Bubble” is now available, shot in New York, City and state, the ‘lounge jazz’ track from the Tennessee Ten features Rick Burrows on trumpet, and is described as a diy lo-no-fi Bert Weill Productions video.
November 1st also sees a live performance of the whole of Tennessee Ten at The Eagle Inn, Salford. One Sided Horse and Misharlo support (details below).
13th October sees the release of a new three track EP “Sjhake” by Cambridge self styled purveyors swirling keyboard-fuelled psychpop with horror-show freak-beat guitars and new wave post-punk bass-lines.
Lead track Sjhake previously featured on the bands second album “Haunted Mirror”, second track “Glossy Magazines” was featured on a German Shepherd compilation and the third track “Electric Line Terminus” is a new release.
In anticipation of the release of new EP “Mind Trajectory” in November PrunX have released a video for the track “Iron Dream” which appeared on their Vol. III release. With stunning and stark imagery the video captures the spirit of Norman Spinrad’s alternative history novel which inspired the track.
Watch this space for news about the new EP, until then enjoy the video
Berlin based deliverers of all things groovy PrunX have launched a video of the second song from recent EP vol. III. This hard hitting track shows the band at their very best

A brand new single from The Screaming Love Collective with guests Al Price on Harmonica and Paul Winter on vocals hits the digital stores on 17th February. We think it’s their best yet. With a moody mutant blues with folky elements we were reminded of the early experiments of bands like Traffic. It’s utterly gorgeous and we commend it to you.
