Django Django - Default
John: Thumping good foot-stomper from the Edinburgh art-rockers
Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out
Foe - The Black Lodge
The Kinks - Victoria
John: Victoria Pendleton had won gold at the Olympics during the week
Foo Fighters - Monkey Wrench
Manic Street Preachers - You Stole The Sun From My Heart
