Porridge Radio started as Dana Margolin’s bedroom project, but are now a Brighton-based 5-piece who make ‘a perfect blend between cool lo-fi rock and strange, morbid sadcore’ (Wake The Deaf), inelegantly knotting together beautiful melodic pop songs with vicious and furious emotional outpour.

After a series of home-recorded solo demos, a split EP with West America, and the growing legend of their live shows, they released their first full band LP in 2016.

Originally released on cassette, Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers is now re-released by Memorials of Distinction on vinyl. The album documents struggles with life, love and boredom – spelt out with sticky fingers by five idiot savants.

RP&OF’s lyrics, title and artwork, as well as the group’s name, brings to mind a certain scrapbook absurdism at the core of Porridge Radio’s work. Faced with the dark abyss of existence, the band scrapes together some value from the nonsensical and the pointless, and then cling to it, giggling, for dear life.

Regulars on the Brighton scene, with a couple of UK tours behind them, and described by Everett True as ‘the greatest band in the world’, Porridge Radio are overwhelmed.
