As the saying goes all good things must come to an end. Unfortunately this is the final release on the Too Pure Singles Club, who’ve had an incredible innings over the last 10 years and whose final single is no exception. The label’s final release we be a 20 track album across two 7”s by the mighty Dream Themes.

Everyone’s favourite TV theme covers band release their debut 20-track album. It fits on two 7” singles playing at 45rpm.

Over the past couple of years, Dream Themes have played their exuberant, rowdy, fun-packed versions of classic TV themes to whooping crowds at Festival No. 6, Wilderness and Camp Bestival and their TV appearances include ITV’s Paul O’Grady Show and BBC4’s Live From Television Centre.

Formerly a backing band for papier-mache headed legend Frank Sidebottom, they’ve shown similar enthusiasm for following up ridiculous ideas - an onstage game show (‘Shenanigans’), a YouTube soap opera (‘Thamesmeerd’), a Christmas pantomime (‘Santa In Space’) and a kids’ puppet show (‘The Y Factor’). They’ve been the subject of at least three bemused articles in the national press and have established themselves as the must-have band for unorthodox wedding receptions. First dance to the theme from Blockbusters, anyone?

After their news-based double A-side of 2014 (‘News At Ten O’Clock News’) they vowed they would never release another record because of the huge amount of admin involved. However, when Too Pure agreed to do the paperwork, they relented.

‘20 Golden Greats’ will be launched at an hour-long show at The Lexington in London on Sunday 17th December, preceded by Dream Themes’ new pantomime, ‘Quick Wittington’.
