27th September - Tunbridge Wells, Forum
16th October - London, Montague Arms

2. Thomas Tantrum - Rage Against The Tantrum (Sindy Stroker)
This is a great record. I've heard a few things by Thomas Tantrum and they sounded pretty good but here on their self-titled debut album everything comes together to form what is a pretty much perfect pop record. In the words of Kevin Keegan "Luv it!!"

3. Wild Billy Childish & The Musicians Of The British Empire - Thatchers Children (Damaged Goods)
Billy's back with another winner. This album has been around a month or so but I've only just got one so you're probably already familiar with it but just in case.... This is the title track.

14th September - Dorset, End Of The Road Festival

4. High Dependency Unit - Stupormodel (Shoot The Freak)
Taken from the album "Metamathics".

5. James Yuill - No Pins Allowed (Moshi Moshi)

6. New Fast Automatic Daffodils - Beam Me Up (Playtime)
This is a track from the criminally underrated Manchester bands "Music Is Shit" EP from 1989.

7. 18th Dye - Amorines (Crunchy Frog)
I'm really enjoying this album at the moment. So often when bands come back after a number of years of non existence they have very little to offer but this sounds fantastic. Hope they play in the UK soon.

8. The Peth - Let's Go Fucking Mental (Strangetown)
Taken from the album "The Golden Mile" which is for the moment a digital only release although their website does indicate that it will be avaliable on CD at some point in October.

28th September - Southampton, The Soul Cellar

9. Echoboy - Kit & Holly (Mute) 7" single released back in 2000

10. Right Turn Left - Paint On My Patio (Self-Released) Information is quite scarce on this Exeter four piece. This track comes from an EP of which there are only 300 copies. I think we might have to keep an eye on these boys.

11th October - London, LFC @ Notting Hill Arts Club
7th November - Harlow, Club Quattrroz
15th November - London, Tommy Flynns, Camden

  1. Great selection of tracks. Just for your info the My Majestic Star track was the single taken off the just released album "Too Late, The Day".
