Porridge Radio Every Bad (Deluxe edition)
Catalogue No.: SC393DLX-C2
Release Date: 4th December 2020
Porridge Radio grew out of Dana Margolin’s bedroom, where she started making music in private. Living in the seaside town of Brighton, she recorded songs and slowly started playing them at open mic nights to rooms of old men who stared at her quietly as she screamed in their faces.
Though she eventually grew out of them, for Margolin these open mic nights unlocked a love of performing and songwriting, as well as a new way to express herself. She decided to form a band through which to channel it all and be noisier while she was at it - so Porridge Radio was born.
Inspired by interpersonal relationships, her environment -in particular the sea - and her growing friendships with her new bandmates (bassist Maddie Ryall, keyboardist Georgie Stott and drummer Sam Yardley) Margolin’s distinctive, indie-pop-butmake-it-existentialist style soon started to crystallise. Quickly, the band self-released a load of demos and a garden-shedrecorded collection on Memorials of Distinction, while tireless touring cemented their firm reputation as one of UK DIY’s most beloved and compelling live bands.
As the band’s sound - bright pop-rock instrumentation blended with Margolin’s tender, open-ended lyrics - has developed and refined, Porridge Radio have also received enthusiastic radio airplay on the BBC, Radio X and more. Next they took that development a step further, as they put out their label debut, ‘Every Bad’.
Shortlisted for a 2020 Mercury Prize, this is the deluxe version of the debut album from Porridge Radio, one of the most exciting British bands around. Includes five bonus tracks.
Available to independent retailers pressed on ‘Purple & Blue Nebula’ double vinyl.
