20 September 2016

Not so many tracks today in order to fit in some long ones.

Mr Shiraz - Nobody Puts Swayze In The Corn
Local rockers with a new album coming soon. Also, Mikey had the good grace to let us put a gig on and tolerate me caterwauling, so we're quits yes mate?

Natterers - Make Room! Make Room!
Punk from Yorkshire, both North and West. Which appeals to me as somewhat of both these days and in favour of raucous guitar-laden shouty punk. They have a four-track EP called Demo '16 out which is done and dusted in about 6 minutes. No point outstaying a welcome eh?

Featured album: The Avalanches - Wildflower
The long-awaited second LP from the Avalanches was only 16 years in the gestation. Good job it was worth it.

Boz Boorer - Girl From Atlanta feat. Eddie Argos
Rockabilly veteran Boorer teams up with Art Brut frontman Argos for a splendid record. This is a couple of years old, but I've only just come across it for the first time, so I'm playing it.

Pixies - Tenement Song
Always love a new Pixies album and Head Carrier sounds the part from what I've heard so far, apart from the lead track Oom Chagga Lagga which is just daft. It's out on the 30th.

Lovely Eggs - Drug Braggin'
And it's also always nice to hear from these. Husband and wife from Lancaster.

Man And The Echo - Distance Runner
A band from the North-West with a single that came out last month. Sonic Lyric poetry they call it, and that sounds good to me.

Kim Gordon - Murdered Out
Ex-Sonic Youth, Gordon's gone solo and this is a hell of a way to announce it.

Church Of The Cosmic Skull - Black Slug
Psychedelia from Nottingham, off the album Is Satan Real which came out last week.

Featured album: The Avalanches - Wildflower
Frankie Sinatra
This was the first single from the album. Yes, I've played it before, no I'm not apologising.

Jay Daniel - Knowledge Of Selfie
Always love a good pun and you've two for one here. This is off Detroit producer Daniel's LP Broken Knowz which is out in November.

Preoccupations - Memory
These were formerly Viet Cong, a name that did cause some kerfuffle. Hence they are now Preoccupations and they have a self-titled LP out as of last week. Off it, here's an 11-minute slice.



and Bandcamp:

Not next week - live football instead as the table-topping Terriers are at home - but the week after.
