Spratleys Japs
Album and single available now!!

All Hell brakk loose, by all accounts SPRATLEYS JAPS are TIM SMITH out of CARDIACS and a wayward gathering of unruly, highly suspicious New Forest types who took it upon themselves to spend the dank autumn and winter of our 1998 to robber around together in the rotten mud in the dirty woods, like pigs. They scrabbled out of the mud with a blank expression, bringing out all of the mud with them and then making a mess it must be told. Never mind, because in their mucky hand they held out their first album called PONY and a single called HAZEL. Possessing a hairy eye, and good nature, ALL MY EYE AND BETTY MARTIN MUSIC have found it in their lovin' heart to release these recordings due entirely to the excruciating brilliance therein, and in doing so, rendering their availability to you lot. CHRIST ALMIGHTY! What's more, have ALL MY EYE AND BETTY MARTIN MUSIC unearthed sketchy rumours of some sort of LIVE PERFORMANCES?? Not yet damn it. But for now, PONY and her HAZEL are truly available NOW! ...TO YOU!!... NOW!!!.......BONER!

but Coming Soon...
Mr. & Mrs.Smith & Mr.Drake

A very vintage recording, a beautiful din, dredged out from under the sludge it was stored in at the bottom of a sour pond, washed, and soon to be made available to you lot on super C.D format. This rare and wonderful ensemble, if you're quizzing, were later on to become the universally revered SEA NYMPHS. The exquisite and the unparalleled. This ancient recording of old, MR and MRS SMITH AND MR. DRAKE, came into being many, many, many, many moons ago as a STRICTLY LIMITED EDITION compact cassette. Being eternally indebted to you lot, as well we know it, let it be understood that ALL MY EYE AND BETTY MARTIN MUSIC are busting arses and, if necessary, brakking heads, to bring this heavenly recording to you in the considerably more accessible super C.D format, hopefully in the not too far-off future. Then we will ALL be entered into heaven, away from the scum and all....CHRIST ALIVE!!!
