Listen: The Rouge Became
After blowing us away for years with their live show, we’re excited to announce the release of The Rouge Became b/w Wits by Bronze. Featuring members of C.L.A.W.S., The Vanishing and Fuckwolf, Bronze perform a bit of alchemy, turning psychedelic, dance, post punk, and krautrock into their own dark, hypnotic thing.
Think Section 25 fronted by Nico. Think Suicide fronted by William Shatner. Think The Doors. Don’t think at all! Bronze will put you into the deep freeze on the dancefloor with their impersonal dark wave performance thing. Two new jams full of pounding drums, synth squiggles and zombie vocals eminating from the heart of the concrete jungle in the dead of night. And on a fancy little picture disc to boot!
Limited to 500 so get it while you can.
Did you miss us? Do you like our new look? We know its been quiet, but we’ve been busy. We have a bunch of new projects coming up, including a release from one of our favorite SF acts Bronze and a new imprint we’re cooking up thats gonna be called “designer vagina”. Keep an eye out for updates or join our mailing list to keep current on whats going on.
In the meantime, check out World Famous in SF alum Myles Cooper. He has a new 7 inch, “Gonna Find Boyfriends Today” b/w “Lord Love Music”, out on transparent. These tunes are pretty choice and its limited to 300 hundred so you might want to act fast.
If you haven’t seen the video for Gonna Find Boyfriends Today, watch it below. It pretty much defines the modern gay psychedelic experience. With puppets.

The SF Weekly found Green Living, released 7/28 on World Famous in SF, to be “a combination of ’70s bedroom-freak Gary Wilson and ’80s pop screwball Lawrence Hayward of Felt, recorded at the epicenter of the current hipster underground.”
We here at World Famous like those comparisons and are extremely pleased that Green Living entered the CMJ top 200 it’s first week out. Response from DJ’s has been extremely positive:
“Oh man, the 1980s! Glamour! Dancing! Not being obnoxious and creating music that throws back this hard to that era is an incredible, incredible feet. Synth rock nu-wave that is so incredibly spot on and so well crafted I couldn’t not give it a nod.”
“got hooked on (1) second it started – I feel no shame in liking something that combines the most addictive musical elements of disco and lo-fi with retro pop rock.”
“Lo-fi masterpiece with an air of 60’s psychedelic pop/folk, hints of surf rock and new wave bleeding through. a moody, atmospheric sound.”
Copies of the LP will be on sale as well as a limited edition promo CD version of the album that is not available in store. Tom & Jeremy of World Famous in SF will be there live and in person selling the record. Please come out and help us celebrate the release of this excellent LP!
Bonus! This is a triple record release show, also appearing The Splinters, and The Perverts all celebrating new vinyl. The Splinters’ first official release is the Splintered Bridges 7″ on the excellent Double Negative Records (Battleship, The Fucking Ocean).
Garage rock trio The Perverts celebrate the recent release of their debut 7″ by HBSP-2X Records, and the band opens Saturday’s show.
