Ross Palmer’s new single “Little Differences” b/w “Can You Explain” is available now from here as part of the Board of Fun Download Singles Club. It’s a breezy West Coast pop song recorded entirely by the multi-instrumentalist Ross. We launched it on Saturday 4 May, as part of Board of Fun’s Clapton Zine and Print Fair. The video was directed by me, Yo Zushi.
Here, belatedly, is the third instalment of the Board of Fun download club: a great two-song set from Sean King, co-founder of the soon to be resurrected 1990s/2000s noise label Eidola Records and lo-fi songsmith in his own right. Recorded one summer’s day using a single microphone, these songs come unadorned and bullshit-free – they’re what they are, and what they are are small gems.
Listen/download the A-side, “One Last Dance”, here.
The B-side, “A Bottle of Whiskey at the End of the World”, can be found here.

Thanks to all those who made it out to the Dentist in Hackney, London, to celebrate the launch of the Board of Fun zine, the James McKean download (see post below) and also zines by Zoe Taylor and Sean King. It was a great night, full of music and photocopied bits of paper. We had songs from Jerry DeCicca of the Black Swans, me (Yo Zushi) and James McKean, with assorted backing from Phil Brunner, Ned Crowther, Ross Palmer and Dan “Robbie Robertson” McKean. Information about the zines (and where to get them, if you missed out) will be in a later post.
