Dinked Edition 222

SLUG returns with a new album “Thy Socialite!” on 20 January 2023 on a new label formed by Field Music’s Peter and David Brewis.

“I started to think about what I could do to challenge my own listeners,” says Ian Black aka SLUG. “And what would be my angle without just releasing 40 minutes of generic bad music?”

Despite the playful nods to some of the more grandiose, theatrical and overblown elements of the rock genre, it’s also an album with a contemporary pop edge, slick production and a tangible connection to SLUG’s previous deft mix of indie, rock and art pop.

The result of all of this is an album that is fun and unpredictable but also conceptually smart, ambitious and adventurous. A place where classic hard rock and smart art-pop are treated equal, and where taking the piss doesn’t have to equate to being novelty or disposable. It was all part of the challenge that Black set himself from the off when he asked himself “how could I challenge the SLUG listener but bring them on a new fresh journey which will confuse them at first but they will ultimately love?”

The Dinked edition includes:

  • “Brain surgery red” vinyl
  • Alternate Dinked sleeve 
  • Signed art print 
  • Hand-numbered

Limited to 300 copies.
