Psssht… who has time to attend gigs? Some of us have jobs to do, am I right? Life isn't just one long party, you know. Also, we have the internet now, which means we can just watch live shows on YouTube, or listen to them on Soundcloud, without having to elbow our way to the front of a crowd of other smelly humans, swilling from a plastic cup of warm, not-fizzy beer, engaging in what I can only describe as a hearing loss disaster waiting to happen.
To that end, if you love Chain of Flowers (and who wouldn't? In the word's of Noisey dot com's Emma Garland, they thread "together the starry-eyed goth pop of The Cure, the crushing existentialism of The Birthday Party, and more riffs than The Stone Roses' cutting room floor") then you will appreciate the fact that they are releasing a live EP of their Part Time Punks Session on Funeral Party, so you can hear how sick they sound live without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home. The live session will be released on limited edition cassette tape this Friday, but ahead of that, we are premiering it below.
