Crammed has released over 250 albums and 250 singles by artists from all over the world, ranging from Aksak Maboul to Bel Canto, Carl Craig, DJ Morpheus (& the Freezone series), Eddie Fowlkes, Flat Earth Society, The Gruesome Twosome, The Honeymoon Killers (let's skip some letters) ... to Snooze, Suba, Tek 9 & 4hero, Zap Mama, Hector Zazou and Zuco 103 ...

Crammed's sub-labels have included the Made To Measure composers' series, world music collection Cramworld, electronic music imprints SSR, Language & Selector, and Ziriguiboom, a collection devoted to new Brazilian music. Nowadays, Crammed would like to believe that borders between genres are no longer indispensable, so most releases tend to come out under the simple "Crammed" banner.

Crammed's current roster includes Konono N°1, Cibelle, Koçani Orkestar, Taraf de Haidouks, Bebel Gilberto, Balkan Beat Box, DJ Dolores, Tuxedomoon, Shantel, Kasai Allstars, Think Of One, Mahala Rai Banda, newcomers Lonely Drifter Karen & Allá, and more.



Musician and writer join forces for multimedia in-store at Rough Trade East, London.

There are not many in-store events that incorporate live music, reading & a screening... but this Real Tuesday Weld event is quite unique. Join Stephen Coates and GG McEwan of The Real Tuesday Weld and author Glen Duncan for a special one off audio visual performance of music and readings from Duncan's novel The Last Werewolf and the band's soundtrack to the book to mark the release of the album on Crammed Discs and the publication of the UK paperback.
Monday 3rd October, 7pm.

THE REAL TUESDAY WELD album "The Last Werewolf"
takes Glen Duncan's novel as the backdrop for a widescreen emotional cabaret tailor-made for the I tunes generation. For the album is both a high-concept soundtrack plus a diverse playlist for the eclectic of ear and heart, all held within the band's own genre Antique Beat. The book's themes of violence, friendship, transformation, London, love and betrayal are recast as a suite of songs bound together by voices and readings from the text.

As ever with an album by THE REAL TUESDAY WELD, individual tracks cover a spectrum of styles from thirties ballads and torch songs through gypsy jazz and electro-swing to minimalist electronica. A range of influences including Gainsbourg, Chopin, Django Reinhardt, Cole Porter, Springsteen, Barry Adamson and Tom Waits hover ghostlike over the story as it unfolds.

Stop press: the movie rights to Glen Duncan's novel 'The Last Werewolf' have just been snapped up by Ridley Scott!

"Songs For The Last Werewolf" will be released by Crammed Discs on October 3rd as a deluxe 20 page hardcover CD book including extracts from the novel, lyrics and original illustrations by Catherine Anyango.

Coming soon, an animation video clip for "Me & Mr Wolf" by George Fort for Giant Squid Eye Productions. Have a look at the stills:
