A great set of tunes for you this week. I'm in a great mood today mainly because York City FC have signed a decent goalkeeper to replace our dodgy one thus giving us a fighting chance next season. I normally feel quite disappointed when the football season comes to an end and the prospect of two months with nothing to moan about becomes reality but this year I'm delighted. Such has been York's season that I was praying for it's end back in January when it was all to clear that not only were we a poor team but much worse than that we had become a laughing stock. The once proud Minstermen reduced to objects of other peoples mirth. I must admit if I supported someone else I'd love to be playing us every week. Still you probably didn't come here to read about football, you came here to find some decent music. And very decent this weeks selection is. I was very tempted to put up another track from the Half Man Half Biscuit album but I don't want to rush things. There will be another track in the next Record Box for sure. Highlights this week? Well I really like the album by The Occasional Keepers which features Bobby Wratten who used to be in The Field Mice and Trembling Blue Stars amongst others. I think I read somewhere that this is the second Occasional Keepers album which means that I'll have to try and track down the first. There are a couple of excellent demos this week as well from the likes of Correct Effect who come from Manchester and Red Light Company who don't (as far as I know). Anyway I can't sit around here talking shite all day I need to be at work in ten minutes.
