Bed Rugs: the young Antwerp band take their name from the much discussed mat in The Big Lebowski. After the highly praised release of last year’s mini-LP ‘Rapids’, we are pleased to go backwards and present ‘Purple Pill’ & ‘Dream On’ as a single and special Record Store Day issue. These 2 tracks are highlights from their outstanding debut LP ‘8th Cloud’, showing that even then they punched well above their weight. Originally released in the Benelux, ‘8th Cloud’ itself will come out on 28 April on CD only in the UK and France. Like Tame Impala and MGMT the sounds are heavy weight and the melodies ambitious - classic rock from Beatles to Nirvana. Les ZAZA’s French magazine recently summed them up as ‘the illegitimate children of McCartney and Cobain.’ James Endeacott who has seen them a good few times describes them as ‘off the scale’. Their spectacular London shows were the best antidote to anti-European feelings we have seen for a long time.
