Yeah Yeah Noh - She Pulls The Petal From The Flower
Their first release in 28 years. They reformed in 2012 and are now gearing up for more releases. Good. Belting stuff.
The John Steel Singers - State Of Unrest
From Brisbane and off the album Everything's A Thread that came out in July.
Mary Joanna and The Southern Electrikk - Wasted
A band that's already split up, which is impressive by any standards. This came out last month, but a bad gig split the band. Mary Joanna is back recording though, so we'll see what happens from here.
Cover Version Corner
Stereolab/Greys - The Noise Of Carpet
Greys are from Toronto and have rocked up the tone of this cracker from the 1996 Stereolab album Emperor Tomato Ketchup.
The Wave Pictures - Pea Green Coat
Absolutely fantastic. The best rock harmonica work since Lee Brilleaux was a lad. Off their forthcoming album Great Big Flamingo Burning which is a collaborative effort with Wild Billy Chyldish. It's due out in February next year. Can't wait.
Deers - Castigadas En El Granero
To Spain now. Formerly five but now four, it translates roughly as Grounded In The Barn. From the album Barn.
Menace Beach - Come On Give Up
We've had these many times before, but there's finally an album due. Ratworld is due in January.
Warmhammer - Wet Blanket
Off a split cassette with house favourite Keel Her on Suplex records, this came out about three weeks ago.
Autobahn - New Age
Another cover - I should have saved this, but couldn't resist throwing it in. It's an old Blitz number but seems about as relevant as ever. Available as a free download.
Retroject - Webster's English
To Doncaster now and something of a change in tack to a slower, more ska and dub influenced sound. Not that there is the slightest thing wrong with that. Dear me no. Also available as a free download.
One Degree of Separation
Fat White Family - I Am Mark E Smith
The Fall - Mountain Energei
That's the new single from the Fat White Family and it's a blatant excuse to shoehorn in another Fall track, this time from The Real New Fall LP from 2003.
Pinkshinyultrablast - Umi
From St Petersburg, this is off a forthcoming LP, their debut. Delightful.
Pix - A Way To Say Goodbye
Doesn't it make you sick? Hannah Brooks is 19. Nineteen. She's making us all look dead bad. How nice is that?
Objekt - Ganzfeld
Finally, some German electronica. Off a split 12" with Dopplereffekt. Banging.
Here's some of that on YouTube:
and some of it on Soundcloud:
We're not here next week - football, again - so back in a fortnight.
