10 January 2017


Eight Rounds Rapid - I Like It
And so do I. It's been a while since the fantastic debut album Lossleader, but here's new stuff from the Essex boys. Tremendous.

The Darts - You Got Me
All-woman band from Arizona, this is off their debut, self-titled LP.

David Bowie - No Plan
A posthumous release on the occasion of what would have been his 70th birthday. The EP of the same name contains his last ever recordings. Still miss him.

Featured album: New Fast Automatic Daffodils - Pigeonhole
Get Better
On the fringes of the Madchester scene, NFADs get overlooked a lot. This was their debut LP from 1990, coming a couple of years after forming. I just don't think they ever get the credit they deserve. They were good.

Piskie Sits - Put Right
New stuff from Wakefield now, via Wakey label Philophobia. This is off the album Stick And Twist which came out in November.

Neurotic Fiction - Generals
Another track from recent signing to Art Is Hard, the flip side to the double A single with Mediator on the other side.

Joel Gion - Tomorrow
The Brian Jonestown Massacre percussionist continues his own side-project. This is a non-album track released last month, though a new LP is coming soon.

Field Route - Come Back
New band from Manchester featuring past and present members of Horse Beach. This is off a self-titled EP which is well worth your time checking out.

Blaney - Winner
Staying in Manc environs, Blaney is from Salford and this is off the Urban Nature LP that came out last spring.

Featured album: New Fast Automatic Daffodils - Pigeonhole
The biggest track off Pigeonhole here, it was probably their biggest single. And they've resisted the temptation to reform for a few quid in the revivalist scene, so more power to them for that.

High Rise Finale - Loneliness
Another track from the Biography Of A Lost Soul EP coming soon from this Barnsley collective.

Mega Emotion - OK Maybe OK
We've played these Norwich noiseniks a few times before. After several EPs, a debut album is coming, tentatively titled Move, Motherfuckers. This is a banger and a half.

Kink - Pocket Piano (Breakbest mix)
To Hungary next. Strahil Velchev is Kink and this is the closing track to the new EP Cloud Generator.

Alone - Your Eternal Adventures
And finally, the 52nd and final edition of James Reichelt's mission to make a record a week throughout 2016. Far, far more hits than misses among them too.




Doesn't look like I'm in next week. Week after yeah?
