1. Bubblebum Lemonade - I'll Never Be Yours (Matinee)
This is a track from the long awaited debut album by Glasgow's Bubblegum Lemonade.

Another blinder from the Too Pure Singles Club.
3. The Longest Day - Slow Motion World (Feral Media)
Taken from the album "Night Falls".
4. Anderson Noise - Shibuya (Harthouse)
It's good to see Harthouse are still doing the business.
5. Mambo Taxi - Super Trooper (Clawfist)
I had completely forgotton how entertaining this single is. It was issued in 1994 through Clawfist and has Th' Faith Healers version of SOS on the other side.
6. Fox Gut Daata - Endless Hissy Fits (Winning Sperm Party)
You may (or may not) recall earlier o=in the year we included a couple of tracks from a compilation called "Cry Parrot" which was available for free download from the eternally gorgeous Winning Sperm Party website. Well they have just issued a follow up, cunningly entitled "Cry Parrot 2" and it's even better than the first one, packed from floor to ceiling with top new tunes. (andit's free). This is one of the tracks I keep coming back to.
7. Video Nasties - Albatross (Dead Again)
Video Nasties come from London and this is the first record I've heard from them. I bet they sound great live and loud. This is the title track from the bands current ep which if I'm not mistaken (and I usually am) is be available as we speak.

9. Like Honey - Telling Lies (Hybris)
This is without doubt the most played record in the Waaahhousehold this week. The band are called Like Honey which you might think is a Jesus & Mary Chain reference andyou'd probably be right. The band come from Malmo in Sweden andthis track comes from their debut album "Leaves" which is a record which every living person on the planet should own. The bandhave also just released a single called "Five Minute Dream" which is on the album but might have b sides that are not so hopefully I'll be able to track one of these down before the weekend.
10. Pig & Dan - Twisted Lip (Original Mix) (Hedgehog)
A fine release from the Hedgehog stable. The catalogue number on this is HOGG 1. I hope HOGG 2 is as good, can't wait.
11. The Field Mice - Sensitive (Sarah)
12. The Phantom Band - Left Hand Wave (Chemikal Underground)
From the debut album "Checkmate Savage" which will be released in the new year.
13. Cold Cave - Sex Ads (Hospital Productions)
This is one of three tracks on a 7" single which has a really rather fetching sleeve.
14. Peggy Sue & The Pictures - Once We Were Strangers (Broken Sound)
Formerly known as Peggy Sue & The Pirates. This is a track from the new EP by the Brighton band. It's called the "First Aid EP" and will be available fromnext week. The release will be celebrated with an EP launch gig at the 12 Bar Club in London on 11th December.
15. Spacemen 3 - Big City (Fire)
For some reason every time it snows I get this record out. Just one of those weird things. Galaxy 500 often put in an appearance as well.
