1. Air Formation - I Can't Remember Waking Up (Club Ac30) I've been looking forward to this album for quite some time. It's called "Daylight Storms" and should be on your shopping list this week.
2. The Ponys - Exile On My Street (Matador) From the new album "Turn The Lights Out" which I think is released towards the end of March.
3. Styrofoam Duck - Moto Cross Fantasy (Hiddenbirdhouse) How good is this? From an EP cunningly titled the "Moto Cross Fantasy EP".
4. Eluvium - Reciting The Airships (Temporary Residence) From the new album "Copia". Out 19th March
5. Cut City - Damaged (GSL) Thought you deserved another track from what is a brilliant album. It's called "Exit Decades" and hit the shops last week.
6. Casiotone For The Painfully Alone - It's A Crime (OED) 7" single on lovely white vinyl. This is one one side and the other contains a track by Foot Foot which may be in next weeks program if I don't forget.
7. Friends Of The Bride - Cut Down On My Friends (Demo) After spending the weekend in Birmingham I got home to discover this demo on my doormat and it's been dominating my i-pod ever since. You'll certainly be hearing more from this lot.
8. Fridge - Eyelids (Temporary Residence) From the new Temporary Residence compilation "Destroy Independent Music"
9. The Affair - Unwanted Company (Absolutely Kosher) From the album "Yes Yes To All"
10. The Fall - Insult Song (Slogan) Not the best track on the album granted but even The Fall's luke warm moments put most bands in the shade.
11. Terminal 11 - Fractured Sunshine (Hymen) First track from the album of the same name. There's just not enough records like this around at the moment.
12. The Horrors - Gloves (Polydor) New single from current NME faves. Suprisingly the NME have got it right on this one.
13. The Longcut - Idiot Check (Melodic) New single from one of Manchesters brightest lights. Last years "Call & Response" album was a very impressive debut and on the strength of this the next one will be awsome. I wait with baited ears. Out 19th March.
14. The Telescopes - Precious Little (What Goes On) Classic single from 1990. Re-discovered this last week while searching for something else as is usually the case. Still sounds nice.
15. Tired Irie - For Those Who Swung Hips () If you've been paying attention you'll remember I played you the Cats Cats & Cats side of this record last week and promised to play you the Tired Irie side. Well there you go.
