I was a huge fan of The Fratellis debut album but after the horrendously annoying "Mistress Mabel" and the subsequent disappointing follow-up album "Here We Stand", I didn't hold out much hope that Jon Lawler's side-project, Codeine Velvet Club with Lou Hickey, would be up to much. But they're actually rather good!
If you fancy getting your hands on 4 exclusive "members only" tracks then you can sign up to the Codeine Velvet Club here including a pretty cover of The Stone Roses "I Am The Resurrection" which you can hear here.
Codeine Velvet Club - I Am The Resurrection
Recent single "Vanity Kills" is a cracking wee jazzy pop number and with their album reportedly set for a late December release, is it too late to ask for an extra stocking filler..... or for Jon to stay put and spare us another "Here We Stand"? Or both??
