Inspiral Carpets - It's A Good Job Baby
I've rather overlooked their first new stuff in 20 years since it was released last year so let's make up for lost time. The album is, imaginatively, titled Inspiral Carpets.
The Wave Pictures - I Could Hear The Telephone (3 Floors Above Me)
Brilliant. From the album Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon (obviously) which is due any minute. They play The Doghouse in Halifax on Friday.
Twerps - I Don't Mind
To Melbourne now and one of those bands that dispense with the impersonal pronoun. Range Anxiety is the album and it came out last week.
Cover Version Corner
Jacky/Kitchens Of Distinction - White Horses
An old TV theme from 1968, Jacky being Jackie Lee. Then a B-side from the 1994 single Now It's Time To Say Goodbye. And ta to chum John for the suggestion. I was struggling.
Faerground Accidents - She Makes Me Want To Die
These should be enormous. I reckon they're ace. This is the new single, due out February 9. Buy it. Buy it often.
Krom - Mama Blue
To Phnom Penh now. This came out last week on Metal Postcard with more than a hint of Tom Waits about it. Gorgeous.
Outside Your House - Kingfisher Dave
Something different from Durham. Quite unlike much else you've heard. From the EP Before I Got Fat which came out last July.
Bruising - Can't You Feel
More stuff from Leeds now, rapidly coming to rival the other big cities in terms of output these days. These are a two-piece and you can find this on Volume 3 of the Beech Coma records compilations which comes out in March. Nice bit of scuzzy reverb on the guitar.
Polynation - Dew
The Atomnation label rarely lets you down. This is off their latest compilation called 25. A delight.
Dissolved - Superfluity Of Jeweled Bitterns
A whole load of new stuff appeared on his Soundcloud page this week in advance of the new album Paradox Hues. From Glasgow, but based in Vancouver now which helps explain the missing L in Jewelled.
One Degree Of Separation
Wire - I Am The Fly
The Cramps - Human Fly
Not a tricky link. Wire from 1978 and the album Chairs Missing, though that was a Peel Session version which can be found on their Peel Sessions album from 1990. Then The Cramps from the album Gravest Hits, also from 1978.
Powell - Club Music (Ancient Methods 'Körpersäure91' Mix)
Stone cold banger off the Club Music EP which came out last May.
Scares - Krieger
This is fabulous. Scares are from Austin, Texas, and this is half of a split single with Tocopa which came out on Outward Records a couple of weeks ago. Just brilliant.
Aphex Twin - diskhat1
And finally, something from the EP that dropped unexpectedly last week from Richard D James, Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments vol 2.
Here's that on YouTube:
No show next week - football - so back in a fortnight.
