Releases

Pocus Whiteface released one single, two EPs and an album, plus a three sets of demos, a handful of covers and appeared on three compilations, covering downloads, 7" vinyl, 10" vinyl, tape, CD and CDR.

Most of the physical items are still available if you have a burning desire to own them and some downloads will cost you a little bit of money.

REALS

CD, Download

Pocus Whiteface image
We toyed with a few names in our familar weird style and then Jack Mountain suggested 'Reals' and we liked that.

The artwork is courtesy of Will's GIMP skills, and you can download a large-scale version here: Album Artwork Full Size. All of these were recorded fresh, even though four have had incidentally releases in one form or another before, and they're all sounding much much much better here because Joe really went to town this time and pulled out all the stops.

You can buy it for $5 from BandCamp.com or you can get it at iTunes and from EMusic here: http://www.emusic.com/album/Pocus-Whiteface-Reals-MP3-Download/11811933.html

Unreleased Demos

Download

Before Pocus ended we had two finished songs that never made it onto an official release and never got a final recording. However, we have some decent demo versions of them from our rehearsals and they're presented here on this download.

We've also included the two songs from Demo #2 that never got an official release.

I'll Give You A Buck If You Chuck Chuck Yeager Under The Chin EP

CD

Pocus Whiteface image
So finally the CD version of the Chuck Yeager EP has arrived. It's a proper CD from a glass master and everything and the packaging is this clever folding cardboard thing that looks really sweet. The only slight flaw is the mastering has somehow swapped around the last two tracks so Keeps You From Mine is before A Lurking Fear. Only a small issue, though. We'll be giving it away at gigs where you have to pay to get in or charging £2 (+ £1 P+P in the UK) otherwise.






Bing It On! 2008 (Deleted)

CD

Pocus Whiteface image
This was a compilation CD of bands playing 2008's Bing It On! gig and so we have a track on it. Only 100 were made maybe but whatever the number they all got snapped up on the night.

I'll Give You A Buck If You Chuck Chuck Yeager Under The Chin EP - Ultra Limited 10-inch

10

Pocus Whiteface image
It's finally here. The fabled ultra-limited 10" of our new ep, I'll Give You A Buck If You Chuck Chuck Yeager Under The Chin. The CD will come later but this is the really impressive thing. It's got a cloth bag, hand-sewn by our friend Kelly; artwork again by Will; and once more Doug Shearer mastered it all...but this time he also HAND LATHED the things.

Only 15 of these have been made and we're only selling 10 of them. They're £10 each, which is a lot but they probably cost us about £18 each to make. They include a CD version, a DVD of our videos (see the Videos page for details) and a sheet explaining how they come to exist at all plus some lyric information on the songs.

Giant Isopod Album

Internet Download

Pocus Whiteface image
This was a worthy idea that lay in mothballs for over a year. But now it's finally here! We did a song for it that we've played pretty much every gig since and we're re-recording it for the album. The video is also massively popular, using this original take of the song. Anyway, check the link below for full details.

While it was originally to be on CD it's now a download, with a request that you donate, if you feel inclined, to a Marine charity. Yada yada yada. Read Andy Pagan Wanderer Lu's full explanation about the album and download it from the link below.

The Covers Project

Download

Pocus Whiteface image
Pocus Whiteface did eight covers over the course of three years, and five of them got played live. We've collected them here in one download.

The first covers we did were I'm Her Slave and Territorial Pissings for the SubPopArt club night. After that we thought it would be fun to cover un-Pocus like songs by bands we knew and to this end we decided to cover Junkplanet II's song 'The Half Life' and Dino!Soars' 'The Stomp in the Swamp'. These were never played live.

The one cover not in this collection is Brontosaurus Chorus' 'Now We're Making Out', but this is on the charity download-only album 'Covered At Christmas' (scroll up the page). You can also see a video of the band playing this with our version overdubbed 'skillfully' on the videos page.

In March 2008 we covered two Neil Young songs but due to the recording in the rehearsal what's presented here are the live versions from that night so the sound's a little compressed. We had Raul with us playing drums and Joe is playing lead guitar on these tracks. We also covered our own song But It's Home with Raul drumming and Joe playing lead guitar and that's included here.

Later that month we did a terrible cover, terrible cover of Supergrass' 'Lenny' for BritPopArt. You can find a video of that performance on line but included here is the really bad studio version we did in the rehearsal.

So the link below will give you a zip file containing all eight tracks. Note that we got the lyrics wrong for The Half Life: our only defence is that's what they sounded like on the track...so much like that we never even bothered to check if they were correct. Oops.

I think we should commit it to tape.(Deleted)

C90 Cassette

Pocus Whiteface image
Click on the image to enlarge. This is an audio cassette release comprising 11 songs taken from our first year of rehearsal recordings for no other reason than we liked the idea of putting some of these early and strange takes out. It's only going to be put out on audio cassette and, unless there's a weird overwhelming demand, there will only ever be 10 copies made. Each tape is 90 mins long with the same ~43 minute recording on each side. The tracks are mostly the best recordings from the first time we attempted a song in rehearsal, including a few extra-long versions of normally short songs and one little piece that we never got together as a proper song.

Theo says: "The title comes from a story a friend of mine told of recording his band's last album in either the late 60s or early 70s. Unfortunately I can't really do it justice here in print. Maybe you'll meet him and he'll tell it to you himself. It's funny, I assure you."

But It's Home / This Room Spins 7-inch

Pocus Whiteface image
This is a heavyweight black vinyl release in a paper sleeve, inside a card sleeve, with some great artwork, designed by Will. There's a CD enclosed which has the audio and MP3 versions of the tracks on it, plus the MP3s of the 'A Watch Means Conditions Are Favourable' EP as a bonus.

You can now buy this from Norman Records(link below). Or you can come to gigs where it'll be no more than £3 to purchase...

Demo #2 (Deleted)

The second demo was available for download from this site or from Last.FM but we've now deleted it. We also give it away free at gigs, if we have any copies with us.

A Watch Means Conditions Are Favourable EP

Download

Pocus Whiteface image
Hremig contacted us through MySpace soon after we put recordings up to see if we would record a free internet-only EP release for the label. We re-recorded five of the tracks from the original demo and then added a bonus track from an early rehearsal that we'd never developed.

All tracks plus artwork can be downloaded from their site. Please contact us if you have any trouble.
