10/05/19 Carcrash Casino release 'Something's Happening Here'- their second digital single



Our second single from the forthcoming album is released today

'Something's Happening Here' is a 4-minute power-pop blast conjuring wistful imagery and a chorus hook that will hopefully glue itself inside your head.

Both 'Don't Make Me Laugh' and 'Something's Happening Here' will be featured on the forthcoming Carcrash Casino album which is currently being recorded, and due for release later this year. Once again this is available on the usual digital platforms, Spotify, Apple, Deezer, YouTube, Soundcloud etc.

If you like the band stuff, please be sure to follow us on Spotify and/or subscribe to us on YouTube. Oh, and feel free to 'like' us on Facebook!

As we've mentioned before, all of us are social media luddites, so the more support we get, the better. Thanks in advance!!

If you'd like to show your appreciation, then it's available for a quid here at Bandcamp.

We'll be starting a pre-order campaign for the album soon, so watch this space.

11/03/19 Hi all.


We've just come back from supporting 'A Band Called Malice' (a fantastic Jam tribute band) at their sold-out show at Derby Flowerpot. Really great venue and great fun.

Our next gig has just been confirmed - it's at The New Cross Inn, London, SE14 6AS this coming Sunday 17th March.

There's a Facebook event page HERE

We're first on, so best to get down there for doors at 7pm. Would be great to see some familiar faces.

In other news, there's something rather important happening on the 29th March. That's right, the new Carcrash Casino single will be released. More details just before the release.

Thanks for your support and see you soon!

Jon, Huw, Simon & Andy

04/01/19 Happy New Year to all.


Thanks so much to everyone who has listened to/viewed/bought our single 'Don't Make Me Laugh'.

Tom Robinson of BBC Radio 6 music played the tune three times - once on his 'primetime' Saturday evening show calling it 'probably his favourite record of the week' - we're all dead chuffed.

There will be some gig info very soon, in the meantime thanks so much for your support, and if you like what we're doing then feel free to spread the word!

We're delighted to release our debut single 'Don't Make Me Laugh'

This is available on the usual digital platforms, Spotify, Apple, Deezer etc.

If you'd like to show your appreciation, then it's available for a quid here at Bandcamp.

No pressure, we hope you enjoy however you hear it!

Also, thanks so much to everyone who came down to Katzpace last Tuesday to hear us play a live set and get a sneak peek at the video.

We received a really warm and positive response, and all the band thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Here are a few photos:















Anyway that will probably be all for us until after Xmas when we'll be making another announcement.

We really hope you enjoy the single, and if you do, then please spread the word.

Incidentally, you can follow us on Instagram if you're a user of that particular strain of social media crack. We're luddites, so don't update too often, but it's good to keep in touch.

Of course we have Facebook also!

Thanks once again for your support, have a great Christmas.

23/09/18 We filmed a video for one of our songs the other weekend. It's currently being edited. When it's ready we'll have our first release. We're looking into a single/EP (yet to be decided) launch gig to coincide with it - so watch this space.

Our December matinee show at The Half Moon is now postponed until 2019 due to personnel changes in beautiful mechanica. Again, we'll let you know here first.

A few shots from the video shoot to whet your appetite..

22/08/18 We're heading back in to the studio soon to finish our recordings so having a little break from gigs.
However, looking forward a bit, we have a Christmas matinee show supporting beautiful mechanica at The Half Moon Putney on Sunday December 9th . Those outside the big smoke could come and do some Christmas shopping, afternoon gig and see the lights in the evening - what more could you ask for?
Tickets are on sale now, via this link. SHOW POSTPONED UNTIL 2019 - see above.

15/08/18 Cheers to all who came down to The George Tavern a couple of weeks back. It really is such a brilliant venue - a real gem - long may it continue.
This Saturday 18th August we play The White Swan in Charlton village. It's a charity gig for Greenwich & Bexley community hospice. 4 acts, beer festival, raffle etc etc. Free entry, so come on down if you fancy it. Music starts at 7pm.
