Alcopop! is 50

It may only seem like yesterday that we last wrote about Alcopop! or an associated act (turns out it was actually last Thursday) but that’s only because we love them so hard.

Anyway, this latest news from Team PoP is a big one…. It’s the details of their 50th Release:
We grew up on a diet of Jurassic Park and Sensible Soccer (and all we have left is this lousy record label)
Yes, that’s the title.

And Alcopop! being Alcopop! haven’t just released a bog standard CD. Oh, no – there’s a jacket available too.

Here’s the statement from the Alcoblog:

CDs are cool and all, but because we bloody love exciting stuff too – we’ve taken a nod from our (well, Jack PoP anyways) fabourite label ever Fierce Panda, and created our very own Alcopop050 jacket. They’re being produced as we speak so excuse the crap artist rendering in the shop (that was mine – ahem) but they’re made by Dickies, hand embroidered with the Alcopop logo, as well as featuring a New York Cosmos style Alcopop Records patch. They’re very limited to 50 and available in S, M, L or XL.

And being the uber smashing chaps that they are. They’re offering a ‘skint’ version where they’re offering it AT COST to make sure that everyone can get one. I’ve ordered mine so you’d better get in quick.

Here’s the tracklisting for the CD (via Alter The Press). As well as being a corker it’s a comprehensive history of the label, from the first single to latest signings. You can guarentee there’ll be a review on KPL very soon after our CD and jacket lands on our doorstep.
