Creep Academy gets nice review

Tom Ravenscroft, son of BBC legend John Peel, has given the My Teenage Stride "Creep Academy" single two thumbs up!! In an article from the UK Guardian he says, "11) My Teenage Stride "Creep Academy". This is my favourite record at the moment. It makes you feel like a teenager, which some of you may actually be, but it also makes you want to go and cause trouble, in a nice way"

Thank you, Tom!

My Teenage Stride - Creep Academy 7"

FCR002 has just rolled off the presses, and it's a doozy! My Teenage Stride brings us a double A-side single - two tracks taken from their very successful series of online singles put out through iTunes and eMusic. Creep Academy hits with a nice dose of psych, a herky jerky rhythm, and a fantastic chorus hook that will leave you singing "Too old to die young" in the shower. The flip-side, Cast Your Own Shadow, grooves and soothes with a nice organ melody, building and releasing intensity the whole while. First pressing of 500 on black vinyl. Just $6.00 through Paypal with shipping inside the USA included!





Oxford Collapse - Bits LP

The inaugural release from Flea Circus Records is the Oxford Collapse's "Bits" LP - the vinyl edition of the fine album put out by Sub Pop records up in the northwest corner of the country. With favorable reviews from Pitchfork and a spot on the "Staff Picks" list by Insound.com, Bits has shaped up to be a monster indie-rock album.
