We at ample play records have decided to blow up a pop up shop to bring more satisfaction to people’s everyday living, and much relief to their sound system units. It is the smallest shop in the world, and doubles up as the smallest art centre in the world, and triples up as the smallest disco in the world. The inspiration is E. F. Schumacher's Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics As If People Mattered. We will be selling ample play and non ample play music, in the heart of Stoke Newington. So for bargains and a great day out please join us, pop in.

”Ample Play is truly a label of love, bringing you new rock in the great explorer’s tradition of Elektra, Island and Apple.” David Fricke, Rolling Stone, USA

Quirky video created by Video created by Chris Curtis.
Chris made a film based around the covers of his overly large collection of 70s compilation LPs. He brought them to life using kinetic type - i.e. moving/animating text - of the song’s wonderfully odd lyrics, and pan and track the camera around a world made up of the ladies and graphics inspired by these covers.
The track is taken from the forthcoming album ‘All Unrevealed Parts of the Unknown’ out 10th March.

MATSUKI AYUMU ‘Cold Kills You’ single
Ample Play Records - CAT no: AMPLA086DD
RD: 10/02/2014 - ‘Cold Kills You’ & ‘Astronomical Campfire’
Taken from the album ‘Terraforming (Alternative)’
After meeting Cornershop via Twitter, Matsuki collaborated with the band a couple of times and went on to release his music through Ample Play and via his own website, whilst composing for Japanese TV and film.
Influenced by Western pop and indie music, Matsuki’s style will remind you of the Beatles or Super Furry Animals, yet it’s entirely sung in Japanese and completely distinctive.
