Thank heavens the summer is almost over. I must be one of the few people in the UK who actually thinks we have had quite a good summer. Nice and cool. It seems to be making up for it now though and my fan has decided to go on the blink, typical. On the up side though there are just so many good records around at the moment and the pick of the bunch for me this week is the new single from The Courteeners who come from that hotbed of popular culture sometimes called Manchester (depends which football team you support, as a York City fan I don't really have any issues...). The band are currently on tour around the country. Unfortunately alot of the dates are in support of The Coral but I think I'm still going to make the effort to get to the Leeds gig on 13th October. See their My Space page for more details.
This month also see's the return of former Delgado, Emma Pollock. This is her first album since the demise of the Delgadoes who it has to be said have produced some of the finest moments on Indie over the last ten years or so and finds emma back on top form, although there are a few weak moments the good tracks make it more than worthwhile. I've included "Paper & Glue" in this weeks playlist......and yes I know I've spelt her name wrong on the files but I didn't notice until it was too late. Soz Emma.
