We love a good sale but what we love even more is those treasures you find. The rare items that make you squeal. That limited pressing that gives you goosebumps.
To celebrate that feeling and record stores everywhere, the ModShop is proud to present a selection of super limited test pressings of some of our big releases of the last couple years.
What happens on tour stays on tour, or so the saying goes. Party-makers The Swiss decided to ignore this age-old decree and kept a careful diary of the shenangians as they whirled across Europe playing 10 cities in 15 days in support of their recent offering 'Double or Nothing'. Check it out.
We were running the risk of getting lost in a sea of awesome newness so we asked disco lifers The Swiss to reflect on some of the golden oldies they enjoyed most this year.
Their selection paints quite a picture, given they've spent the great part of 2011 either holed up in a studio finessing their new material, or on the road in support of the recent 'Double or Nothing' EP.
Check the dates below to catch the boys at some of the leading late night joints across Australia this coming November / December.
A homage to their "wide pool of influences", the d'Ancestry Mix is The Swiss' eighty minute journey from shameless p0rn funk to the perfectly overglossed world of billion-dollar acid jazz, via the German autobahns popularised by Krautrock and precise engineering.
To celebrate the release of their new single, Double Or Nothing, The Swiss are preparing for a monster two month tour around the planet, stopping in at Copenhagen, Hobart and several other locations that exist between those two cultural hubs.
'Double or Nothing' will be out in late September.
Disco-futurists The Swiss are back with new single Double Or Nothing, out late September on Modular Recordings.
Despite what his name might suggest, Sidwho? is no stranger. Adelaide boy soprano, bassist in disco-futurists The Swiss, full time member of Australian trailblazers Empire Of The Sun and an acclaimed producer by his own right, who has been endorsed and praised by Tim Sweeney, Future Classic and several other important techno affiliates.
Modular men The Swiss take a slight breather from their current "Suds, Bubbles and Man Troubles" Tour to bring you this exclusive hot mix - perfect for a cruisey summer's weekend. Mr drum machine Tony Mitolo lays down the disco beats ahead of tomorrow's Live Show at Adult Disco, Civic (Sydney) - where the boys will be joined by Flight Facilities, Softwar and Mitzi.
