Guest Mixtape 21: RND Indeed by Riots Not Diets

So Tough! So Cute! mixtape drawn by Toby Blackman
Let me tell you people! Riots Not Diets is a DIY music event in Brighton, UK who put on queer/tweepunk/riot grrrl bands and is probably our favourite club we haven't actually been to. We just keep buying their records, stalk them on Facebook and look at their fantastic line-ups and wish Brighton was a wee bit closer. But long distance longing isn't enough so we figured we'd ask Toby to make us a mixtape of songs danced to in the riot-bedroom. Wish we had a riot-bedroom, ours is just a regular one.

Riots Not Diets also put out records under the Tuff Enuff moniker. Their latest is an 18 band vinyl compilation called 'Carry On Rioting', check it and vol. 1 out on riotsnotdiets.bandcamp.com, its only a fiver. Magnificent sounds, some of which have become must-plays at our club. Then go ahead and like them on Facebook and go to the next RND Presents on Saturday, 15 June where Shopping, Daskinsey4 and Dog Legs are playing.

Here's the mixtape and thanks to Toby for putting it together for us. Now go riot.
