• burn the negative In the Atmosphere (Special Edition) (double CD, £5.50)

    label: Gung Ho

    Originally soft released in May 2009 with only 700 pressed to support their early gigs, Burn The Negative have had a festival season like no other, From Glasto top Rockness to Creamfields and more, the band finish summer 2009 with an Ibiza Rocks gig with SOULWAX. Burn The Negative’s blend of new wave electro pop casts a wry and canny eye over relationships, fame and late Noughties Britain. All local lads, Mark Baker (vocals), Gary Little (synths/techie stuff), Gareth Milburn (bass/synths) and Lee Smith (guitar/backing vocals), formed in their native Carlisle in February 2008. Mark and Gary have worked together for over a decade, as techno producers Lil Devious, while Gareth and Lee played in several indie bands. Exemplifying this decade’s fusing of electronica with guitar pop, the four-piece found common ground and began building a name for themselves on the live circuit. Debut album, ‘In The Atmosphere’ was recorded between Carlisle and Abbey Road Studios (the legendary studio liked their material so much they featured the band on their website). It’s a unique concoction of energetic, trashy disco blended with electro beats, New Romantic rhythms and the spirit of ‘70s punk, ‘80s rock and ‘90s house.
