1. Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound - Clive & Lyre (Tee Pee)
Taken from the bands new album "When Sweet Sleep Returned" which apparently is their third album.
2. Casiotone For The Painfully Alone - It's A Crime (Tomlab)
This track comes from a new Casiotone release called "Advance Base Battery Life" which is a collection of bits and pieces from the last ten years or so. There are some real gems on here alot of which I've never heard before. I've been told there will be a new Casiotone record before long but that could be a lie (alchohol had been taken). Advance Base Battery Life will be released through Tomlab on 10th March.
3. LR Rockets - Dance It Away (Silverdoor)
This is a track from the Rockets current single. According to their MySpace at least one of them has a connection to York so they must be good. I think (if i remember rightly) they had a rather good single released by Art Goes Pop a couple of years ago. The possibility is not small however that I might be thinking about someone else completly. The plain fact of the matter is though that this is a fine record and you need to own it!
19th February - London, The Enterprise
28th February - London, Playground @ 93 Feet East

4. Stina Stjern - The Horizon (Promo)
Stina Stjern is I am reliably informed Norwegian (I thought she was just really bad at spelling). She is also, and this is really important so pay attention, releasing her next single as a seven inch which will be presented, not in a nice gatefold pack or even a picture disc but with it's very own knitwear. That's right the new Stina Stjern single will come in a unique hand knitted sleeve and just try telling me you don't want one of those!!!

6. Butcher Boy - Carve A Pattern (Promo)
I'm not entierly sure what whether this track is from a new single or album. It's one of those single track promo CD thingies which cokes without any info to speak of. Either way it's a good track.

13. Milk Kan - God With An I-Pod (Blang)
I'm sure most of you have already heard this track but the fact of the matter is that no matter how annoying you may find it it's actually a bit of a corker. Taken from Milk Kan's debut album which will be released on 9th March and will be preceded by a new single "I'm a Nobody" on 2nd March.
