Work has resumed on the Dead in the Woods album, 'The Sign of the Son of Man'. This will see the light of day early 2012. It's a beast. More news on that in due course.

Check out the distro as I've just updated it with some amazing new records.

1 in 12 club in trouble

For every EGS record sold in December we will donate £5 to the 1 in 12 club in Bradford.

Records are £8 in person or £10 post paid UK. Overseas get in touch

"The deadline for all of the urgent work that needs doing to save
the club from legal action by the fire brigade and the almost certain
likelihood of closure is only 6 weeks away.

The last few weeks has seen a flurry of activity from a small handful of
members in which we have cleared out huge quantites of abandoned tat, sealed
the lift shafts, started to get the door frames up to fire regulation standards
and done much of the boring paperwork that shows we are trying to get things
right. Massive thanks are due to those members who have been working day and
night to get this done.

Unfortunately, there is still much to do, and this may be too much for the few
who have been mucking in to get done on their own. We desperately need help
from as many memers as we can so we can save the club from closure.

Wondering what you can do to help? There are several ways...

For those with time to spare:
1) Join the 1in12 maintenance list by going to
2) Be proactive - introduce yourself and what skills you can offer
3) arrange a time on the list for the club to be open and come on down.
Ideally, get together with a group of others by arranging this on the list.
Remember, this is a DIY club - there aren't managers to tell you what needs
doing and when, we need to work this out amongst ourselves.

There are a variety of jobs that need doing from skilled to unskilled. We
particularly need some people with joinery or electricians skills, and those
willing to play havoc with a mop and bucket to get the fire escape gleaming!

For those without time to spare but still want to help:
The costs that are being incurred at the moment with all of the materials that
we need to buy is leaving us in a very precarious position financially. If
anyone has anything they can donate to the cause, no matter how small, this
would be vastly appreciated. We have just spent 3 grand bringing the fire alarm
up to standard ad the costs of replacing some of the fire doors and their
frames is likely to be high. Cheques can be made out to the 1in12 club and
donations sent to The 1in12 Club, 21-23 Albion Street, Bradford, BD1 2LY

For everyone:
It would be a massive benefit to get everyone to make the time to come down and
have a drink or two here at some point in the next few weeks. We are after all
a social club and having everyone using the space together, socialising and
using the space en masse does more for the unity of the club than any threat to
the building or the membership can ever make happen. We started life without a
building, and if we have to go back to that situation through closure by the
fire brigade, then we will still be a group of like minded individuals, coming
together through shared politics, a love for music and just a little bit of
random chaos.
