Public Service Blogcast Episode 20

The evening after their incredible set at the Lexington, we caught up with the Thermals as they prepared to play again in London, this time with the Cribs. Kathy, Hutch and (new drummer) Westin were kind enough to pick some of their favourite tracks as well as offering up some for-a-limited-time-only listens to demo versions of two tracks from their forthcoming album Now We Can See out on Kill Rock Stars on April 6th. More demos are also available on a limited 7” white vinyl single which leads with the highly infectious title track plus this record comes with a voucher entitling you to a free digitial download of the full album come April. A great idea which we will probably nick!

Apologies for the ropey sound quality of the speech parts which sound like they were recorded from the future – to cut a long story short, I need a new mike!
