Details of the Papples’ forthcoming fifth studio album have just been released by the group’s vast publicity machine. Fans are eagerly awaiting the new release, which was apparently recorded last month and is undergoing final mastering and production work.

The cover and track list have been made available, and we can exclusively reveal them here on the Beans.


There are twelve tracks, though no word yet on which will be the lead single.

  1. Good Invention
  2. Captain’s Hat
  3. 10/10
  4. Leg Jazz
  5. Run With It
  6. Instrumental
  7. Dirty Work
  8. You Can’t Clean a Sieve
  9. Ghosts in the Microwave
  10. Kerfuffle
  11. Tigerplane vs Chickencopter
  12. Swamp Hospital

The band have described this as a “concept album”, describing the tragic life of a reclusive genius. Legendary producer Nizzle is rumoured to have been involved throughout the album’s creation.

    This fills my heart with a joy that cannot be expressed with words. It’s also JUST as I imagined.

  • Kevil

    When you say “Fans”, do you mean me?

  • Kevil

    I’m also quite scared of anything “Sensual” involving a ghost dog in brackets.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Oh, that’s not a GHOST dog…

  • “Fans” also includes Madge and Ian’s brother. There’s three of you. When oh when will you stop hounding us on our tour bus?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    It’s a shame Miss Wolfson is not part of the Papplewick Papers (that’s what our groupies call themselves) but she’ll come around.

    Em loves the Papples more than ice cream coffee.

  • Kevil

    Is your tour bus Ian’s Punto?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    You leave Charlotte out of this.

  • The Papplewick Papers? I thought that was the fanzine. I thought the fans called themselves the Papples Army.

  • Elena....

    I could be a groupie. I’ve already been moderated by all of you so that pretty much puts me in there.

    Your fans could be the Papplets? The Papplines?

  • Have you had the pleasure (?) of actually listening to any of the Papples though, Miss Wolfson? I mean they have an unmistakeable sound and vision, much like Ziggy Popdust or Lunacy or whatever his name was.

    What about the Papooses for the young ‘uns?

  • If we were to be truly trendy we’d have to be rappers with just a letter for our last name, like Plan B or Jamie T or Malcolm X.

  • Kevil

    Yeah, ‘cos the Rapples was really go…..
    (nope. still cant finish that sentence)

  • Yeah, but now we know that the problem wasn’t the quality of our rapping. It was that we didn’t have just a letter for our last names. If we’d had letters for our last names, that EP would have been bril…

    No. I tried building up to it and I still couldn’t get there.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Let’s just keep it simple.

    The Rapples was ahead of its…
    It will eventually turn out to be the b…
    It’s just plain ex…

    My tongue won’t allow it.

  • No wonder it never got released.

    Not like this album. This album is amazing.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    This album makes my eyeballs want to strut around like a posh racoon. They’re already calling it our best since the last one.

  • I’m having printing problems with the sleeve. Apart from that it’s good to go. Let’s pray to the gods of printing that the wait will be over soon.

  • Kevil

    Is it the ghost dog? I had problems printing a ghost cat the other week.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Kevin it’s not a ghost dog, and you can put your hands down.
