Codeine Velvet Club single & album release announced

Codeine Velvet Club, the sensational new band featuring chief Fratelli Jon Lawler and Glasgow chanteuse Lou Hickey, will release a new single to coincide with the release of their eponymously titled debut album on December 28th '09. Side A will feature album highlight and 21st century wall of sound masterpiece ‘Hollywood’ while the other Side A will feature Codeine Velvet Club's unique take on the Stone Roses' classic ‘I Am The Resurrection’, a song that the band covered for fun as an encore and has since been recorded because so many fans demanded it!

Codeine Velvet Club is a new musical collaboration that celebrates Jon Lawler and Lou Hickey's shared love of '60s girl-boy duets, dramatic orchestral pop, and dark post-war Hollywood romanticism.
