London punk rock powerhouse Dissociates will release their debut album A Capital Idea on November 10th. They have also released the video for the album's first single "Useless Wooden Toys" which can be viewed below.
A Capital Idea was recorded at Middle Farm Studios and contains five brand new songs along with five tracks from the band's last EP After Hours At The Violet Club. The artwork for the record features the iconic George Major wearing a radiation mask imagining "A London which continues to thrive with the backdrop of low-level radioactive fallout."
Commenting on the choice for the artwork, the band's singer and guitarist Dan Stevens said, "We wanted to contrast something traditionally London with the imagined future of fallout. That's where the idea of getting a Pearly came from. It would have been disrespectful to have faked it so that's when we got in touch with George Major. He's not just 'a Pearly' he's King Pearly and president of the Guild of Pearlies."
A"t 84 he's a living legend and we were honoured to have him part of our story. When David Gill heard what we were doing he very kindly offered his services and really captured George's dignity in the photo."
