Too Pure – Making the Singles Club Scene (2011)

For the last three years the Too Pure Singles Club has been releasing monthly 7" singles to subscribers featuring a selection of rising UK and international alternative acts, many of whom are unknown outside their own country (their own town even).

Hit or miss as they can be, you never know which one of these limited run singles will turn out to be your next favourite band.
