The A side revels in the chorus hook ‘Don’t panic/I’m only Islamic’. The band then head out on the Blang mini-tour over August Bank Holiday before playing three shows in Holland in September.

Malcolm Kaksois, one of Blang’s best kept secrets, whose Sexy Dentist orange vinyl single provoked a mixture of devotion and outright hostility, releases album ‘The Introduction Of A Pest’ as a download though Blang (BLANG 20) also on August 24th.. Also available as a CD through the Electric label. The album cover features an iconic image of Malcolm as a cockroach which is available as a tee shirt at his gigs. He plays the Manchester leg of the Blang trip north.
