Having already released 2 of the best albums of 2014 (Gin on Fika Recordings, and Boom Biddy Boom on wiaiwya) STANLEY BRINKS & FRESCHARD are releasing PIZZA ESPRESSO - an album of duets, and a collaboration between both labels – at the end of August.

# On Thu 7th Nov 2013 @ 11:28am John said...oh, yes... here we have the details of everyone involved in 2014's wiaiwya-7777777 7" singles club
to recap, wiaiwya-7777777 is a celebration of the 7" format and all things seven... Each year subscribers (there are 7*30 of you) pay 7*£4 (plus postage) for seven exclusive singles, one released on each day of the week, always on the 7th of the month...
2014 is the third year we've been doing it, and promises to be the most ambitious yet; seven picture discs that together form a fully illustrated seven step guide to releasing your own records - the world's first all vinyl self help guide, if you will...
so, without further ado,the bands will be:
Clemence Freschard (feat the Wave Pictures and Stanley Brinks)
the Leaf Library
the Secret History
the Human Hearts (feat Franklin Bruno & Jenny Toomey)
And the picture discs will be illustrated by:
