Twenty-track Thinking About Moving To Hastings out in October; watch the video for one of Taman Shud's contributions, The Hex Inverted, below

Trashmouth Records, the fine London-based imprint who've brought records by the Fat White Family and Taman Shud into our lives, have announced plans for a compilation. The excellently-named Thinking About Moving To Hastings will be out on October 13 and features brand new material from both the aforementioned bands, three and two tracks respectively, alongside contributions from David Cronenberg's Wife, Pit Ponies, Zsa Zsa Sapien, Meatraffle, Warmduscher, Bat Bike, Decius, No Cars, Phobophobes and Lewis Idle, all released on double vinyl, CD and download. By means of introduction, Trashmouth say: "When times are hard (and popular music goes through a prolonged period of being shit) people get up and start taking things into their own hands... Trashmouth Records rejects the slick, the smooth and the sterile embracing something more real, something you can’t just hear but you can probably smell... Setting up shop in the suburbs as far from the cup cakes and beards of East London as they could get, Trashmouth has a studio and label dedicated to recording and releasing out-of-the-ordinary music. This is outsider music and it would appear the world is full of outsiders hungry for a taste of something different…"

As a taster, we've been given the video for Taman Shud's mighty invocation stomp-through 'The Hex Inverted' (read our interview with the band here) as featured on the comp, so watch that below and keep an eye on Trashmouth's Facebook for details.
