Mostly new things on this weeks show with a couple of classics for good measure
- Orange Juice – Felicity – Coals to Newcastle – from the excellently constructed compilation an equally excellently constructed piece of pop magic.
- The Crookes – Godless Girl – Single – from the new album “Chasing After Ghosts” this Sheffield band play FAC 251 on 26th March (or maybe 25th it’s a bit confusing on their My Space page)
- Little Volcanoes – Drum Roll at the Cash Machine – Pre-release – Manc wunderkinds doing what they do best……
- Periscope – Barefoot – Charity Download – the ever lovely and talented Mr Swinney regales our ears with more musical magic – hope over here and download it and then donate something – it’s for a good cause.
- Electric Furnace – Goodnight Bloodsuckers –Sound and Fury EP – a bit of metal from the Rhondda to liven up your ossicles…..
- Fidel and the Castros – Take It Away – Demo – great name and a great demo sent in by this band …. I predict great things
- Traffic – 40,000 Headmen – Welcome to the Canteen – classic track from one of Traffics best albums.
- Letters to Fiesta – Blue Giants – Demo – interesting name and an excellent sound from another Manc band.
- Danny Short – Bottles of Red Wine– Love Has Gone – Another great track from Dan’s new album which is out in April…be sure to check out the free download of his Reputation EP here.
- Drama – Iso – Single – The single being released on March 14th is now to appear on Classic Rock Magazine’s May Edition covermount CD which is released in April.
- The Winchester Club – Negative Liberty – Negative Liberty – new album out 23rd March, touring soon but not playing north of London unfortunately.
- Twilight Hotel – The Master – When the Wolves Go Blind – rather marvellous new album from the musical partnership of Brandy Zdan & Dave Quanbury. I like them because I can’t pigeon hole them!
- The Counterpoints – Catalyst – Promo – from Berkshire, and described as being echoes of the entire history of British popular music, you can find out what all the fuss is about by visiting their websites http://www.thecounterpoints.com and http://www.myspace.com/counterpoints
- Grails – Future Primitive – Deep Politics – I whitter on endlessly about how good this is elsewhere on this blog. Another contender for album of the year.
