Debut Single ‘Isolation Explosion’ Released

The first single by No Side Effects is now available for listening and/or downloading. The single is called ‘Isolation Explosion’, the themes of which we have rambled at length about in our ‘No Side Effect Podcasts‘ and written about in our ‘blog’ entries.

There are two B-sides included with the single called ‘Isolation Explosion (Industrial Slavery Mix) and Isolation Explosion (Replacement B-Side Mix). The Industrial Slavery Mix was an early incarnation made during the development of the single which we both ended up liking. It is interesting how far some of the songs we’ve worked on have changed since their original rough sketches.

The second B-side ‘Replacement B-Side Mix’ was recorded in Tom’s studio during a rehearsal session. There was going to be a different B-side but we had a few difficulties getting permission from the BBC to use a sample that was used in the track. Well, we could not afford to include it, should we say.

It has been a long journey since we first chatted about doing a collaboration over 2 years ago over a pint in a local pub. Have a listen and download for free if you wish and send in your comments, keep them clean though!

Podcast 2: Combatting Loneliness (including Full Play of Debut Single)

They would love to say that the demand for the No Side Effects second podcast forced them back into the studio to quench the publics desire for more fascinating insights. The reality, however, sees Tom and Ade continue their self indulgent, somewhat pointless ramblings that contribute next to nothing to understanding, all in a vain attempt to promote their first single “Isolation Explosion’, the full version of which can now be heard at the end of this podcast.
