Asian Dub Foundation - Stand Up
Another track from the brilliant album More Signal More Noise which came out in July.
Orphan Boy - Money To Money
Don't think I've played any bands from Grimsby/Cleethorpes way before, so consider that rectified. Coastal Tones is the album and it's out now.
Du Blonde - Raw Honey
Another one from Welcome Back To Milk which is, as you should know by now, ace. What a voice.
The Durutti Column - Beginning
The Durutti Column - Katharine
Our featured album this week is The Return Of The Durutti Column, the bands 1980 debut. Physically, it's most arresting feature was the sandpaper sleeve, a Situationist prank nicked from Jacques Derrida whose Memoirs was similarly fashioned. The thing then is that every time you take the book off or put it back on the shelf, it destroys the books next to it. That's Factory for you. Anyway, it's a masterpiece and worth revisiting.
Heavyball - Unhappy Now
A long-awaited LP, Black Eye Diaries, is now available to order and I cannot wait to hear it in it's entirety.
Ex Hex - All Kindsa Girls
A first track since debut LP Rips came out, a cover of a The Real Kids track.
Warm Brains - Pink Blackpool Rock
Another long-awaited album, this time coming next month. Big Wow is the title and this is the lead single from it.
Owiny Sigoma Band - (Nairobi) Too Hot
This is ace. I love what these guys do, mixing London and Nairobi sounds. This is off the new album Nyanza which came out at the back end of August.
Stolen Haven - Used
Off the EP Three Stripe Blues which is out now-ish. It's got just enough about it to stand out from the crowd.
Sea Creature - Songbird
Something a bit older now, from 2013. These are from Bury St Edmunds and the album is called Electric Dreams. Don't know how it passed me by, but glad I've caught up with it now.
The Durutti Column - Requiem For A Father
Air Formation - The Wasted Days
Off the EP Were We Ever There, which came out last month.
Shunkan - Paleontologist
To New Zealand now for this which appears on The Pink Noise which comes out on November 20.
LV - Balance Spring
Brilliant slice of electronica from the new LP Ancient Mechanisms which came out last Friday.
Tom Furse - Run To Me pt 3
Also out last Friday, an EP from Horrors keyboardist Furse titled Run To Me Suite. Four tracks, here's part three. Brilliant.
Here's that on YouTube:
No show next week - Town are playing a made-up football club from Buckinghamshire - so back in a fortnight.
