At last, after many months of recording, our new EP Physical Trauma to Wash Your Waffles has been released. You can now listen to it and download it on our BandCamp page.
It contains songs that have appeared in Croydon Tourist Office live sets over the last few years like Post Office Mice and Croydon Tourist Office, as well as a selection of newly finished pieces that no one else has yet heard.
Kerchunk, featuring heavily distorted drums that Bryce recorded back in the late 90s, now has a fresh coat of Max’s guitar work, and Robert and John having a battle of nutritional value labels.
Punch it in Our Hearts started as a demo that John composed based on randomly generated lyrics that Max put together. We all added extra layers to it and it is now possibly our most epic song!
The Shoes is a poem that Bryce wrote (based on an actual pair of shoes), set to music. Robert added some backing vocals and Max and John improved it wish some guitar work.
The quirky little number ROCK!!! was made a long time ago when Bryce played some drums through an interesting sythesizer . The result was so much more than a drum track. Everyone thought it was cool, but no one knew what to do with it, until Max ran a vocal mix through an interesting little toy, and we all found the answer!
We hope you enjoy the EP. We promise not to take so long in getting the next album put together…
