Back when I first created this site, prior to taking everything down and focusing on an Ugly ‘n’ Weird book instead, I used to post the odd bit of ‘news’. I put that in inverted commas because I know I’m not a journalist.
FOR SOMEONE WHO enjoys loud, strange noises, it’s been awfully quiet here for the last few months. I just wanted to let you know that I haven’t gone anywhere and there’ll be new content coming soon.

ALBUM TITLES DON’T get much more morbidly sardonic than Bucketfulls of Sickness and Horror in an Otherwise Meaningless Life. Always looking on the bright side of nihilism, Alice Donut pick at the scabs of civilised society to reveal what wriggles underneath so they can point at it and laugh. And it’s on their sophomore album that this blend of cheerfulness and grotesquery first truly came together.
… we decided that our music would be better and more unique if [we] weren’t ‘scared’ of being stupid and un-cool.
