Atalanta available for free download & streaming now!
London underground favourites The Dissociates are kicking off 2015 by releasing studio tracks and rarities from the last year in order to make way for further brand new tracks this summer.
Despite rather improbably being flown out to Belfast to feature in BBC’s hit drama The Fall, 2014 was actually a subdued year for the London 4-piece as they experienced a slight line-up change.
A rest was much needed considering their previous high level of shows with the likes of Slaves, Joe Lally (Fugazi), The Bots, Crazy Arm, Capdown etc… and touring in the UK, Germany and a completely insane DIY Punk venue tour of Ukraine all done on public transport just before the war kicked off over there, including a date at a local biker gang clubhouse in Eastern Ukraine near the Russian border attended by over 200 people (tour video can be found here – including footage from that show.) The band also has released singles on both legendary London DIY Label Household Name Records and Disorder records
Atalanta is the second of three tracks to be released over Spring 2015 by Safety Second Music, it was recorded by Ben Standage at Audio Underground in Hackney. All tracks can be streamed and downloaded for free on their bandcamp, soundcloud or website.

First up is a track we recorded at Audio Underground Studios with Ben (www.gotmics.com) – he recorded us in a massive old ramshackle room in Stoke Newington with carpets on the floor and rain on the window.
The song is about Dial House, the grade 2 listed 16th-century cottage on the outskirts of North Weald which has been converted to an artist collective by Penny Rimbaud from Crass along with other members and like-minded discontents
Been a while, eh!?
We will be digitally putting out 3 singles this spring, comprised of various bits and bobs that we never got round to releasing before now for various reasons. Taken from assorted past sessions these songs demonstrate that, although we may not be the most prolific recording band, we are still writing and working away!
We hope you enjoy!
Last year we went to Ukraine, we toured the country by public transport on a diet of sleeping pills during the day and buckwheat vodka after the sun went over the yardarm. It was intense and amazing. When we were out there we all shot a lot of footage and Dave our wrangler filmed some of the live shows. Here is the resulting product.
This is also the first sneak look at our latest recording session we completed recently with Ben from www.gotmics.com – the song is called Three Years and will be coming out properly over the summer
We will be posting our Ukrainian Tour Diary soon as a back story to the whole adventure….
Right, we’re back in London after our AMAZING time on tour in the Ukraine (tour diary & video coming soon) and we have some good news – we are delighted to announce that next Dissociates single will be coming out on esteemed London label Household Name Records – a label that has been part of our lives for many years through the London scene, and has released some of the best records from DIY UK bands over the past decade – and longer. Proud to be part of the stable!
It will be available from all the usual outlets, as well as from us direct at live shows – and digitally. Release date, launch party and supporting tour information to follow soon!
Thanks, and see you on the road! 🙂
