Spinto band are Slinky!

Spinto BandYay! The Spinto Bands new EP “Slim & Slender” is being released next Tuesday!

If you haven’t ever really heard of them, please please don’t Google them and forever link them to that fucking Nescafe advert which uses what’s probably their biggest single to date, ‘Oh Mandy’. They’re better than that, much better.

Slim & Slender is just that, a slinky 4 track digital or vinyl EP that’s out on the 6th of October, and serves as a precursor to the self-recorded LP to follow in 2010. Guitarist Jon Eaton says “We are working on that new material in a new studio we have been slowly piecing together over the course of the summer,”. Yes, that’s sounds great Jon, tell us more “Now that we have found a bass clarinet, we are a lot closer to being done.  The next step is to figure out how to play the bass clarinet.” Oh, so it’ll be late 2010 then. No worries, we’re sure it’ll be worth the wait.

So, here’s one song from the EP, as we want you to go out and buy it, don’t we.  So, I give you
