3. Darkus - Dubbed Jah (Slim Blue Remix) (Bassrock)
Darkus is basically Simon Dark who somehow manages to combine being a builder, running an online record shop and churning out top shit like this all at the same time. Now that's what I call multi-tasking.
4. Fight Like Apes - Recyclable Ass (Model Citizen)
This is definitely my favorite record at the moment. The album is called "The Mystery Of The Golden Medallion" and is one of the best debuts of the year.... if you live in Ireland where the record is now avaliable. It's due for a UK release early 2009 so it could well be one of the best records of next year as well. Regardless make sure you pick up a copy of this as soon as you get chance. Really good shit.

7. Stars And Sons - In The Ocean (Self-Released)
Stars and Sons are from Brighton and last year they sent me a very nice CD with a very roughly painted hand made sleeve which scratched anything it came into contact with. I think it was called "The Goat Show EP" or something like that. Anyway this is a track from the new single which will be released on 17th November. Apparently they're going to be on the telly on the very same day (bit of a coincidence) with some footage from their "In The City Show". You can see this on something called "Channel M" which means absolutely nothing to me but can allegedly be discovered on Sky channel 203 and Virgin Media channel 878. Godspeed my son.

8. Mogwai - Mogwai Fear Satan (Fuck Buttons Remix) (Tour CD)

12. Jeremy - Silly Love Songs (Download)
This is a track which Norweigan band Jeremy made available as a free download single last month. Their debut album "Smells Like Rain, Feels Like Sun" has just been released in Norway and I'm trying to track down a copy as we speak.
13. 2 Hot 2 Sweat - Half-Assed Rom Com (NROne)
Norwich based NROne REcords really is putting out some top stuff at the moment. This is particularly sweet and if you get a move on you can purchase it as a limited edition of 250 CDs which come in a snazzy 7" sleeve when it hits the public domain on 10th November. I always was a sucker for packaging.
20th December - Norwich, Arts Centre
14. Maikotobranco - Tell Me Why (Small Finger)
Taken from the album "Star" which is a Japanese release but I'm sure you'll be able to find it outside Japan. According to the Small Finger website this was the first release on the label and the second is by a band called "Cubic Star Minimal Orchestra" who sound facinating so I'll try and get hold of a copy asap and let you know.
