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.

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.

A new young band from North East Wales, The Bluebottle Veins release their debut 5 track EP 'Raindrop Blues' on Ample Play Records on 11.11.13. John Robb (Louder Than War) has them down as ‘the BEST young band in the UK right now. Think Marc Bolan, Led Zeppelin or Beefheart, The Bluebottle Veins are part of something quite brilliant – a new rush of bands taking the electric blues and giving them a teenage rush…this band are really special.’
The KVB is the audio/visual project of London duo Klaus Von Barrel & Kat Day. Ample Play will be releasing their new ‘Run Away’ single because it combines JCB guitars, minimal synths, fucked up machine beats and delay drenched vocals with a backdrop of imagery to accompany the symphony differently.
