So although 2017 may have been a bit of a crap year for many things, for music it was not! So many great albums!
Today we release the debut single from Cardiff's Big Thing.!
Longbeach is a freeze frame in the mind of a long-term dreamer. But what happens when that voice in your head becomes Tom Petty in drag with a drum machine?
Thanks to the enormous kindness of Aussie Psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, We are very pleased to announce that, in collaboration with the awesome Bubblewrap Collective, we’ll be releasing a limited run of ‘Polygondwanaland’. The release will be on heavyweight black and red vinyl and limited to 300 copies.
All profits from the release will go back into the Cardiff based record labels in order to promote up and coming acts on the local music scene.
* Vinyl Visual Mock up may vary from final product
A Bubblewrap Collective / Phwoar & Peace Collaboration
BWR039 (LP) Red & Black Vinyl.

So 2017 is drawing to an end. It’s been a good first year for Phwoar & Peace so we thought we’d celebrate by throwing a big Xmas party and getting all our bands to play together!
£5 advance tickets, £6 on the door
You could try chancing it on the night but you don’t wanna miss out on this do you?!
6:30 doors, will all be done by 10:30 so make sure you get down early!

Today we welcome band number 4 to the label, Cardiff's Big Thing!
After a chance meeting at Bargain Booze, Dan, Jen, Jonny and Matt were stoked to find a shared love of discount wine, shoegaze and dips.
Settling on the name Big Thing because the other names they came up with were even worse, the band started writing, recording and playing house shows, in their own houses, to nobody.
Influenced by bands such as Cocteau Twins, Wild Nothing and War on Drugs, you can draw your own conclusions.
We release their debut single 'Longbeach' this friday!
So it's been a busy weekend here at Phwoar & Peace!
Rainbow Maniac played to a packed out Big Top at their first ever Swn Festival.
Earlier in the morning they recorded an acoustic session for Bethan Elfyn and BBC Radio Wales

Last night Ray was a guest on BBC Radio Wales chatting with Bethan Elfyn about the label and playing a couple tracks from Hoult and Rainbow Maniac.
You can listen back to the show here:
The interview starts at about 48 minutes into the show.
Welcome Picsel to the Phwoar & Peace family!
PICSEL is a side project of Broken Fires. In their own words:
"We started writing the BF second album. We wrote a lot of songs. Some great ones. We have thirteen wonderful and epic demos we are currently shaping and working on for the next full length record. It is going to be a banger.
HOWEVER… By accident we also managed to write 9 songs that don’t quite fit with the BF sound. The type of songs your mum definitely won’t enjoy. They are great! So, we started a side project. It is called PICSEL."
FFO: Weezer, Fidlar, Pinact
We will be releasing double A-side 'Fat & Old / Status Update' this Friday the 13th!!
