Vinyl Singles Club vol 2 - Dead Lovers/The Pantomime Villains

Dead Lovers - ‘Kerb Your Libido’ / The Pantomime Villains – ‘Hook Line & Sinker’

AA-side Split 7” Vinyl- LTD 250 copies

2nd April 2012

The Preservation Society Presents returns for Volume 2 in their vinyl singles club series. This month sees more Kentish charms in the shape of the melodic poeticism of Dartford’s Dead Lovers with ‘Kerb Your Libido’ and the heady adolescence of Thanet’s The Pantomime Villains with ‘Hook Line And Sinker’.

‘Kerb Your Libido’ is the Debut Release from Dartford’s Dead Lovers, with distinctive folksy harmonies punctuating this piece of classic observational English song writing. The tale of a seedy protagonist all overcoats and drool, is contrasted by a quietly rousing template of new wave guitars and an infectious sing-along pop chorus. The track will act as a precursor to further much anticipated releases throughout 2012, with a series of singles and a debut album to follow. ‘Kerb Your Libido’ is just the start of Dead Lovers quest in reigniting Dartford’s great musical history.

Track 2 of this very limited vinyl only release is the latest offering from Margate’s The Pantomime Villains, following the blindside success of their debut release the ‘Told You So’ EP. These four 18 year olds who abound with youthful verve and exuberance are the sound of adolescence and yearning teenage dreams. ‘Hook Line and Sinker’ sees the band soar effortlessly from a verse of wistful lament to a rabble-rousing crescendo chorus, all drunken frolics and broken promises. Their teenage idealism is already gaining them fans throughout the music industry ‘it’s clear they could just be the shot in the arm that guitar music needs’ Anthony Thornton – Uncut Magazine.


Once again the release is strictly limited to 250 vinyl copies and will be supported by a short string of co-headlining live dates across the South East. The vinyl can be purchased exclusively at these gigs and from
