The Heart String & How to Pull It

The Heart String & How to Pull It is the third album by Scottish rock band Sucioperro, released on 7 March 2011 by Xtra Mile Recordings.

The band financed the making of the album and completed most of the recording themselves at their beastin’ studio, The Lair. The record was produced by the band, mixed by Chris Sheldon, and mastered by Chris Gordon. The artwork was once again done by bassist Stewart Chown, in collaboration with longtime Sucioperro photographer Gordon Burniston. In order to fund the publication and promotion of the album, and the March/April 2011 tour, the fan-funding intermediary Pledgemusic was used, which gave fans the opportunity to take up some special offers from the band. The Sucioperro Pledgemusic statement indicated that a percentage of profits would be donated to Alzheimer Scotland when the fundraising target was reached.
The album spawned two singles – “Threads” and “Reflexes of the Dead”. Both were released as digital EPs, including 5 previously unreleased b-sides each.
Full details of the track listing and album artwork were released on 28 February, followed shortly by news of a fourteen date tour throughout England and Scotland, starting on 21 March and finishing on 8 April.

Pain Agency

Pain Agency is the second album by Scottish rock band Sucioperro, released on 4 May 2009 by Maybe Records.

Pain Agency was recorded in the band’s studio in Ayr between June and October 2007. A video entitled ‘The Making of Pain Agency’ was created and posted on the band’s YouTube page.
‘Dragon’s Pain Agency’, a diary of events between the 10 June – 12 July written by the lead singer, was made available online from 16 July 2007 and includes information about recording developments, song titles, eating habits and progress through the computer game ‘Black’.
The artwork for the Pain Agency era was designed by bassist Stewart Chown and Gordon Burniston. The style was carried across to the official Sucioperro website, which was also designed by Chown, until the site was updated for the release of the band’s third album, The Heart String & How To Pull It.
Although the official release date was 4 May, the album became available to purchase at gigs from 27 April to coincide with the start of a substantial UK tour. A promotional copy of the album appeared on eBay on 13 April but was withdrawn by the seller later that day, apparently at the request of the record label.
A deluxe digital download, which contains extensive bonus material related to the Pain Agency era, was made available from the band’s online shop in 2010.

Random Acts of Intimacy

Random Acts of Intimacy is the debut album by Scottish rock band, Sucioperro, released on 12 June 2006 by Captains of Industry.

“The Crushing Of The Little People” was featured on the “Kerrang! New Breed” double album compilation.
Three singles were released from the album – free ‘taster’ download “Wolf Carnival”; “Dialog On The 2” and “The Drop” were released on CD and were accompanied by two b-sides each. “Grace & Out Of Me” was later released as a free download to coincide with the band’s tour with Surrey rockers Reuben – with the accompanying music video directed by Reuben’s Jamie Lenman.
The artwork was the first collaboration between Stewart Chown (who would later go on to become the band’s bassist) and Glasgow-based photographer Gordon Burniston.

Mums’ Bad Punk Music

Mums’ Bad Punk Music is a single released by Sucioperro on 17 November 2008 through Maybe Records.

The release of the band’s second album, Pain Agency, was thwarted by several delays which prompted the release of “Mums’ Bad Punk Music”. The single contains a set of the band’s heavier songs and, at the time, it gave some indication of what to expect from the forthcoming second album. Around the time of the release the band embarked on a small tour, including dates in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. The title track received airplay from BBC Radio One DJ, Vic Galloway.
