'SuperGroups' - Free Recording Opportunities

Open to unsigned bands and musicians aged 16-25, Supergroups give each band 5 days in the Green Door Studio to rehearse, record and mix a 4-5 song EP. We will choose a band a month starting in July 2013, and every 4 months, the 3 bands from the previous 3 months form a "Supergroup", who then also get 5 days in the Green Door Studio to rehearse, record and mix a 4-5 song EP. Your recordings can also get full digital distribution (to i-tunes, emusic etc) through Emu Bands. You also get a 4 hour recording skills workshop at the start of your session. This project is sponsored by Creative Scotland Youth Music Initiative and Emu Bands.

Golden Teacher - Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night (Optimo Music)

This is the hotly anticipated second EP of Green Door recorded live analog hypno-juju electronic freak outs from this extremely talented Glasgow collective, and features some incredible sleeve artwork on the ultra limited edition initial release of 250 pressings.

The Amazing Snakeheads - Testifying Time / Truth Serum (Domino Records)

Snapped up by Domino records, and with the NME and the rest of the music press deservedly slavering after them, The Amazing Snakeheads are no longer one of Glasgow's best kept secrets. Their debut 7" single 'Testifying Time' (recorded in Green Door) is out now, and is one minute and four seconds of pure distilled maximum rock'n'roll which has had the likes of Zane Lowe and Steve Lamacq hitting rewind and playing multiple times in one show.

Casual Sex - Stroh 80 (Moshi Moshi)

The eminently ungoogleable Casual Sex boys have their next 7" coming out soon on Moshi Moshi music, and what a super fine retro-futurist feast it is..

Golden Teacher - Bells From The Deep End (Optimo Music)

Starting life as a Green Door studio experimental collaboration between analogue house duo 'Silk Cut' and Avant-noise makers 'Ultimate Thrush' these guys managed to melt the internet switchboard and sell out their debut vinyl EP in the space of 2 days. Never fear though, Optimo have plans to repress the vinyl for those of you unlucky enough not to get your hands on a copy the first time around.

Nice review from Juno records here..
