It's strange how things happen sometimes. Just last week I was having a chat with Mr Vincent and he asked if I'd heard anything from Art Goes Pop recently.... skip forward less than a week and two new Art Goes Pop releases have myseriously appeared on my doormat. This is one I've been looking forward to for a long time. Nacional come from the hotbed of indie-pop otherwise known as Glasgow and first featured on this site a while ago on Mr Vincent's excellent "North Of The Border" compilation. I've been trying to get him to do a follow up ever since but it's like trying to get tomato sauce out of a beetroot.
Nacional will release their debut single "Telephone/Yorkshire" on 4th August. I've just noticed that they played down the road in Leeds just the other day and I've missed it so I'm now going to retire to the shed to play with a bottle paraffin and a selection of incendiary devices.
