Sydney DIY Label Lost Boy Records ​have announced a re-issue of the Split 7” between Camp Cope’s Georgia Maq​, and Paper Thin’s Spencer Scott​. This split was originally released in 2015 – before either of them had started their respective bands.

To celebrate the release, the full split will also finally be available on Spotify, Apple Music,and other digital platforms – something the pair didn’t think to do the first time around.

They’ve also given it a fancy new cover; a photo of them taken by Lost Boy Records owner Olly ​before a Courtney Barnett ​show.

Not long after the release of this split, Georgia Maq would form the band Camp Cope. The trio’s self-titled debut album made them fans around the globe, and won them critical acclaim from SPIN​, Noisey (US)​, and Brooklyn Vegan​. Camp Cope recently headlined a show at The Forum​ in Melbourne and announced their 2nd album How To Socialise & Make Friends.

Spencer Scott has a long history of performing as a solo artist; having supported everyone from David Le’aupepe ​(Gang​ Of Youths​) to Dead Kennedys ​(seriously.). His band Paper Thin formed in the middle of 2016, and already have two EPs under their belt, and support slots for the likes of Japandroids​, Ceres​, and The Hard Aches​.

To celebrate the release, Georgia Maq will be playing intimate solo shows in Sydney, Newcastle, and Melbourne. Spencer Scott will be supporting each show, as well as a local opener in each city.

Dog Dirt ​will be opening the show at The Record Crate​ in Sydney. 2017 saw Zoe release two EPs under the name Dog Dirt, as well as release a full-length album with Sydney outfit Sportsbra​.

Rachel Maria Cox ​will be performing solo in Newcastle at The Hamilton Station Hotel​; having just released their debut LP Untidy Lines as well as being nominated for ‘Best Pop Act’ at the National Live Music Awards​.

Kelso ​is the side-project of Camp Cope ​bassist Kelly-Dawn Helmrich,​ Max Quinn​’s Xavier Noonan​, and Japanese Wallpaper​’s Gab Strum​. The group’s dreamo songs have been an instant hit, being added to rotation on triple j Unearthed, with a handful of plays through triple j​. They will be opening the free entry show at The Reverence Hotel in Melbourne.

Pre-orders of the 2nd press of this Split 7” (on Red Vinyl) are available through Tickets to Sydney and Newcastle are on sale now via Oztix. Melbourne is a free entry show.
