It will be available at Rough Trade and Norman Records from next week too. Get it direct from us and save yourself a little money, also we will ship worldwide.
Here is how Rough Trade describe the EP, "stonking debut from wobbly lamps. fuzzed up and drenched in a riff heritage that stretches back in time to the sonics and a whole host of frustrated garage-bound moronic geniuses, wobbly lamps wax 3 songs which bloodthirstily pummel minimalistic garage riffs the way billy childish used to. the vocals are dressed in distortion and immediacy and there's pleasing splashes of noise and synth trickery at the margins as the songs threaten to implode in on themselves. imagine the country teasers devoid of the abject misanthropy and replaced with a pop seam that squirts out at the edges like a fresh donut". Sums it up very succinctly we reckon.
The 3 tracks are:
A1. Neon Tepee
A2. S.W.M.D (She Wants Me Dead)
B1. Alice The Goon

Norman Records gave the Wobbly Lamps single five stars out of five in their weekly round-up of the week's releases.
Here's what they said -
"I’ve had to review a load of “difficult” experimental records all day and my brain is totally mashed so I’m delighted to pick up a couple of gems so late in the day when morale throughout the office was really on the wane. I’ve not heard these Wobbly Lamps before but they’re peddling garage pop in the vein of King Khan & The Shrines or the most recent Intelligencealbum. They sound like they’ve been listening to the Moonhearts and Marked Men and those kinds of ‘60s-pop-with-a-boot-up-its-arse bands who’ve been making my life better in recent years.
Thinking about it, it’s strange to see a band from England actually pulling off this kind of summer holiday garage aesthetic so well...’Alice the Goon’ on the B side is a swaggering Make Up-meets-Crampsy number, and all three tracks on here are brilliantly judged garage pop with totally uplifting ‘60s vocal harmonies far too bright to be obscured by any amount of fuzz. Despite the gnarliness of the tones the compositions are kept simple and spacious and the tunes are always boss. More please!"
Copies are on their way to the US and Czech Republic so far. Lets get some of these babies sent to some other countries.
