Recorded live at The Hunter Club, Bury St Edmunds, UK, Saturday 4th May 2013.
Coming on like Fleetwood Mac covering dEUS via Fugazi and early Verve, Horse Party got together in September 2012 after a night spent drinking in a church. Bonding over a shared love of Bjork, Savages, Daughter and terrible movies, the threesome hatched a simple plan: Firstly, in blanded-out times, to release records that sound like no-one else. Secondly, to either make or lose a million pounds.
A free download in January 2013 quickly led to support offers with alt-stars Tunng, Pinkunoizu, Heartless Bastards, London Grammar, Dingus Khan, Vuvuvultures and Tied To The Mast, and a live broadcast via BBC Introducing from the new John Peel Centre for Creative Arts. April 2013 saw the release of critically-lauded debut single, ‘Back To Mono’, swiftly followed by live EP ‘Scarlet & Blue’. Horse Party will be collaborating with singer Jaq Gallier at a special Elliott Smith Tribute at London's Brixton Windmill in October 2013.
