Notes in respect of the above

1. A sort of an intro to the following piece – from what I regard as their best release “Do the Square Thing” – they are playing Gulliver in Manc on May 8th.

2. Mr Hiatt of the aforementioned combo working with the ever busy Periscope  – excellent and out now

3. Further promotion of said bands EP launch this Thursday at the Kings Arms

4. Playing at the Hope, Eccles Old Road, as part of Toska’s Salford Temptation – doubt if they will play this one but I like it…..

5. The aforementioned TW and well a bit of a theme tune for the weekend

6. The co-conspirator of 5. above from a forthcoming album this is the pre-mastered version – slightly edited by me for content

7/8/9 Three exclusives of the tracks that will be on sale on the Sunday at The Hope from this bunch of miscreants….from Chorley which has a lot of roundabouts

10. Classic post-punk from one of my favourite albums – a very inventive band who never quite got the recognition they deserved

11. They are back and with a bang – from a forthcoming EP I think – they also just been signed to Alcopop Records.

12. Featured this band last year – this is their recent single – most impressive – hopefully a local promoter will entice them down

13. The ever lovely Kill Pretty with a track from their excellent album (have I mentioned how good the cover is?) – playing Saturday at the Crescent as are….

14.  Another band from Chorley (who share a singer with 7,8, and 9 – where do these musicians find the time to be in several bands at onece – I can’t keep up)

15. Mr Ding has been remixing the original AAAK releases and has made them available free of charge from their website – a classic piece early piece of Buildingscape Beats

16. This American gentleman caught my attention recently – impressed by his approach – this is the B Side to this recent single

Listen here……

1. The Neon Mile – Weight in Gold =  Four-piece indie/folk/rock band formed amongst the rubble of yesteryears whims and fancies. We are David Bowie. We are David Lynch. We are David Brent. WE are THE NEON MILE.www.facebook.com/ TheNeonMile

2. Tuxedomoon – Victims of the Dance – Desire = A classic track from one of my favourite albums

3. The Simpletone – Western Ways – Rampenny = The Simpletone are an unsigned rock band from Cambridgeshire, UK. The band was Formed in the Summer of 2009 by three friends Glenn Eastoe, Craig Seymour and Alex Aprigliano.The band was finally complete in the summer of 2010 with the addition of lead guitarist Jonny Davison. The Simpletone play a rare mixture of heavy and light melodic rock, drawing influence from many great bands of the past and present such as Black Sabbath, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Biffy Clyro, Captain Beefheart, The Smiths, Alice In Chains and The Doors to name a few. The band have played an abundance of gigs around London, Cambridge, Bedford, Huntingdon and their home town of St Neots. The Simpletone have recently been confirmed to play The Cambridge Rock Festival 2012.

4. Odoghan – Sail to the Moon = Odoghan ( Irish O´doghan)The band was born in Cordoba City – Argentina back in 2005, when Jose Visconti joins with friend and guitarist Cesar Fernandez to play some acoustic shows at the local scene. After some shows and anticipating a set of own electric songs Enrique Paglia (cesar´s cousin and former co band member) joins as the drummer and engineer for the first album (“To mars” 2009). Bassist Cesar Nocetti joins the band at last to complete the formation. The band lately released their first video-clip (“Sail to the moon” 2010) and is finishing the production of the second album to be released by the end of 2011.The band´s been influenced by “American and British alternative rock” from de last two decades, brit pop, punk rock even folk at some point. Though responding to these influences, the band´s music finds it´s own path, and develops into an honest means of genuine expression of profound and existential feelings. There´s a lot of travelling, transit, doubts, questioning and contradiction in the songs: resistance to a modernity where things questionably work or work for only a few, where man is compelled to survive and justify his existance.Facebook Link: http://www.facebook.com/odoghanfan
