A Love From Outer Space - Sat 31st May
The ever popular A Love From Outer Space night will be back in Glasgow at the end of May. These nights are often a sell-out so we advise getting tickets in advance, you can get them here.
Patrons Important Info:
You will now know we are using a wristband for venue entry ID. We shall be opening the doors of the top bar at the Berkeley Suite at 10pm. This is to give the early birds the opportunity to get the wristband & be in for 10.30pm. Lots of you come early which we presume means you want the whole night, warm up as well as full on ALFOS experience & who wouldn’t. Lots of very nice music being played from doors open which is worth that early arrival.
The Asphodells on Correspondent compilation - out now
The Asphodells have a new track called ‘Prejoy (Barbaric Splendour Version)’ appearing exclusively on Correspondent Compilation #02 out today (24th March). Have a listen to the whole album on the link below.
The Asphodells join forces with Friendly Fires
At some point in 2013, Friendly Fires, Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J Fairplay convened in an east London pub to discuss collaborating on new music together. The plan was to produce music that came from a place outside of their respective usual musical styles – a loose, open-ended process embarked upon for the pure joy of experimentation and collaboration rather than a specific end goal.
The result is ‘Before Your Eyes’ and ‘Velo’ – two brand new tracks that take close to ten minutes each to reveal their full hypnotic glory. The tracks will be released on 31st March as an AA-sided single on 12” and download and will be the inaugural release on Friendly Fires’ own Telophase label. You can watch the teaser video here.
Boiler Room - The Asphodells & Friendly Fires - Thu 27th March

Unreal City with Michael Smith
On 5th of September Faber will be publishing a special edition of the new book by Michael Smith.

The special edition of the book will contain a CD and 10” vinyl with songs written by Andrew. You can find more info about the project on the Faber Social site here.
If you’re interested in buying the special edition then The Book Depository offers free delivery to lots of countries.
