Mik Artistik's Ego Trip - David Bowie Was A Funny Man
A touching tribute to the Thin White Duke. I didn't know his dad were from Donny. I do now.
Cyanide Pills - Stop And Search
Leeds punks bring their political sounds to their new LP Sliced And Diced. Came out last month.
Gnod - Bodies For Money
No better day to play this as our Prime Minister travels to Saudi Arabia to flog arms and is more bothered about a false story about removing the word 'Easter' from things than she is about... oh, I dunno.... FLOGGING ARMS TO THE SAUDIS FFS.
From Salford krautrockers who clearly know I'm a sucker for an album title. Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine. Out last Friday.
Priests - Puff
More punky type stuff now, this time from Washington DC. The LP Nothing Feels Natural came out in January.
Neville Staple - Return Of Judge Roughneck
The former Specials and Fun Boy Three man is back with an album of his own, this being the title track. Came out in February.
Desperate Journalist - Be Kind
Off the new LP Grow Up. Very highly rated band and this came out last week.
Pale Kids - Prayer List
To Durham now for a track from the new EP Holy Mess which is out on Friday.
Alimony Hustle - Miss GB
Probably the only record about Zara Holland being stripped of the Miss GB title for having sex on Love Island or whatever. This is the title track of the new LP which came out a week ago.
Ashley Reaks - Ghost Town In My Heart
A change of pace for Harrogate's Reaks with the new album Here's To The Good Life. It's a bit less experimental and more upbeat, even if there's a hint of Nick Cave on this one. Out on Friday.
Saint Etienne - Heather
Woo-hoo, a new Saint Etienne album! Home Counties is coming soon, five years on from Words And Music By... and here's a teaser.

A new one from the Londoners off Write In which is out next week.

Boca 45 and DJ Woody team up again in the Bocawoody guise on the new one Carousel.
Coldcut x On-U - Divide And Rule feat Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Junior Reid and Elan
Belter. Coldcut team up with Ashley Sherwood of On-U Sound and bring in a range of collaborators on the album Outside The Echo Chamber, few finer than the evergreen innovator Lee 'Scratch' Perry who recently turned 81.
Greymatter - Burning 4 U
And to finish, a dancefloor stomper from Graham Luckhurst, co-chief of the essential Mr Bongo label. Off the album No Blood Without.
