Very happy to have FUCKED UP back and what already appears to be in much better form than Glass Boys which, while good is certainly their weakest effort. Their new album DOSE YOUR DREAMS is out 5th October (day before my 30th birthday, they also released ChemCom the day after my 20th(!!!) birthday) and the first song out is “Raise Your Voice Joyce” which starts off fairly expected from FU before going super psychedelic:

The video is shot in London as Jonah lives here now. Owen Pallet who has returned to do string arrangements for the band has described it as their “Screamadelica” while Damian himself has said:

Not gonna lie lads, I’m instantly pretty hyped for this. Praying I can get the time off to go see them at Visions next week.

@mods please close down my thread of the same title… one should be enough

I think there must’ve literally been seconds between us posting

“This album is about the freedom to live, to dream, and to make new dreams come alive in our real lives, which have been fed over to the forces of greed, social media, reification, consumerism, and social media. I can still remember when there were other dreams to be had. We read fantasies and history and the adventures of those who came before us, the failed romantic revolutions, and the struggles to make something different. I made this record to remind people that all those dreams are still up in the air, and that it’s up to any of us to grab one and make it real. You still get to have your own dreams and you still get to live your own life, in this era where social media and phones vie for our attention and take away all our time and put our emotions and relationships under lock and key and into shining little boxes, where we are more connected than ever, but more alone. Where we live in a world led by those so afraid that their only dream was to make money, and to make sure everyone had the same dream, those who would scold us, and make laws against us, and send us to work and to school, to shoot us and kill us and to lock us up and distract us, and kill us, forever. We remember other dreams, and we remember when living in other ways wasn’t just a dream.”

looking forward to this. was quite surprised at how lacklustre Glass Boys felt after David Comes To Life so hopefully this is better


#7

Haven’t returned to Glass Boys anywhere near as much as their other records which says a lot. Wonderful band, mind, so I am desperately looking forward to this!

Their set at Visions in 2016 in Oslo (Hackney…) playing Hidden World in full remains one of my favourite sets I’ve seen live.


#8

I like how it turns into Animal Collective


#9

Same, rivalled only by the year earlier when they played the zodiac singles at Shacklewell and Damian dedicated Year of the Ox (my fave) to me because I’m such a creepy super fan :nerd_face:


#10

They seem to go on an “AMAZING ALBUM>good album” cycle so excited this will deliver on my thoroughly unscientific basis

#12
