1. Pocketbooks - Fleeting Moments (How Does It Feel To Be Loved)
Taken from the bands debut album "Flight Paths" which will be released in June.
3rd April - Brixton, Jamm
11th April - Hull, Adelphi
12th April - Newcastle, Fake Indie Label @ Head Of Steam
25th April - London, How Does It Feel To Be Loved @ The Luminaire
28th April - London, Carrot & Stick @ 100 Club
2. 2D feat MC Kemon - Puppet Show (Resin)
According to something I read on another site MC Kemon spent much of his teenage years playing professional football in Budapest so he clearly is a man of many talents. I wonder if he can still play. York City are short of a good player or two at the moment!!
3. Alex Gladwell - Song (Self Released)
This track comes from what I think is Alex's debut album "Fantasia" which you can download in it's entirety absolutely free from HERE. Usually when artists try to mix several styles it all goes a bit flat but Alex Gladwell really seems to have pulled it off (the music that is).
4. Here We Go Magic - Ghost List (Western Vinyl)
Taken from the self titled debut album which I think is released this very week.
5. Camera Obscura - Swans (4AD)
Some bands just seem incapable of producing a bad record just as some bands can't make a good one (no names mentioned). Camera Obscura fall firmly into the former category with their third album "My Maudlin Career" which is in my opinion their best yet. Maybe it's just me but Tracyanne's Scottish accent sounds much stronger than it used to and you can't whack a good Scottish accent. "My Maudlin Career" will be released through 4AD on 20th April. The band are currently at SXSW in Texas with seemingly every other band on the planet but have a string of UK dates to embark on upon their return.
21st April - Newcastle, Academy 2
22nd April - Manchester, Club Academy
23rd April - London, Shepherds Bush Empire

6. Anti Ear Drum - Stef's Harde Style Mix (HSH)
Taken from the excellent "Brainscan E.P."
7. A Sunny Day In Glasgow - (Cult Of) The Cemetery Flowers (Mandolins Version) (Geographic North)
This track comes from a seven inch which was released last year and somehow slipped through the net.
8. Hatcham Social - Hypnotize Terrible Eyes (Fierce Panda)
Taken from the excellent debut album "You Dig The Tunnel, I'll Hide The Soil"
26th March - Cambridge, The Junction
27th March - Stoke, Sugarmill
28th March - Liverpool, Academy 2
1st April - Sheffield, Stock Room

8th May - Glasgow, ABC 2
11th May - London, Kings College
9. Fuck Dress - Everythings Ultra Now (NR One)
Regular readers may recall we featured Fuck Dress last year with their brilliant track "Suburban Nietzsche Freak". Well they're back with a new E.P. which actually features that track alongside three other top tunes. I can't recommend this E.P. enough. As Mr Vincent would say ATTITUDE!!!!!
10. Friendship - The Graveyard Shift (Too Pure)
This is the latest offering from the Too Pure singles club which I don't think has issued a bad record yet. This one will be issued to singles club subscribers at the end of April and if you fancy a quality limited edition seven inch dropping through your letterbox every month then get over to their site and subscribe. I don't think you'll regret it.
11. The Kabeedies - Little Brains (NR One)
This is a track from the new Kabeedies single which features no less than three top tunes and will be available from 13th April. What's particularly good though is their forthcoming mini tour of venues in County Durham. I think more bands should get off the beaten track and play more unusual places.
1st April - Sheffield, Stockroom
3rd April - Stanley, The Lamplight

23rd April - Sunderland, Polar Bear @ The White Room
12. The Fall - Sparta FC (Action)
There's only so many hours you can survive without hearing a Fall record so I consider this a service to humanity. The Fall are playing at The Junction, Cambridge on 31st March so if anyone's planning to record it a copy sent in this direction would be greatly appreciated.
13. Sharmaji & DJ Boo - Skank Ethics (Original Mix) (Low Motion)
14. Tiny Masters Of Today - Skeletons (Mute)
New single. Out 13th April
15. White Light Parade - Wake Up (Promo)
White Light Parade are from Bradford and if I'm honest I've not being too impressed with their previous singles but this one is a bit of a corker.
16. Town Bike - Bad Girls (Super Kawaii Pop)
This is another track from the Liverpool bands debut album "Go, Fight, Win" which I'm sure is a staple diet on your i-pod already.
7th April - Liverpool, Bar Fresa

11. Everything With You
Wednesday, March 18, 2009
1. The Candy Twins - Happy Families (Lost Music )
This track was advertised to be in last weeks Fodder but due to my inexcusable incompetence.. wasn't. All good things are worth waiting for however and this track is one of them. It comes from a new E.P. on Lost Music called "Sad Glad Songs" (LMC002) which is quite frankly quality. There are only to be two hundred copies pressed however so haste might be an advantage.
2nd April - London, Buffalo Bar
23rd May - Hampton, Party On The Pool
2. DJ D Vs Nitrogenics - Melodic Art (Hardcore Blasters)
3. Grand Duchy - Forte Wayne (Cooking Vinyl)
Another track from the album "Petits Fours" of which I've read a couple of luke warm reviews but I think this is as good as anything Black Francis has ever produced.
4. Art Brut - Demons Out! (Cooking Vinyl)
It's always a sunny day when a new Art Brut album makes it's way into my clammy paws. This is the bands third album and still they show no sign of running out of ideas. Interestingly this album is produced by a certain Black Francis (who appeared on the previous track) and has given this record a slightly harder sound than the first two albums. It's always hard to pick out a stand out track on an Art Brut album but this is one of the tracks I keep coming back to. "Art Brut Vs Satan" will be released on 20th April and preceded by a new single "Alcoholics Unanimous" on 6th April.

This is a remix of the Scandinavian bands new single which was released last week.
3. El Jesus De Magico - Summer Of Luhv (Columbus Discount)
Taken from their "Scalping The Guru" twelve inch which I believe is limited to just three hundred copies and is more or less sold out which is a shame. I think we might have to play another track in the coming weeks.

6. The Wedding Present - Dalliance (RCA)
Taken from the Leeds god's 1991 album "Seamonsters".
7. Hermas Zopoula - Couron Scourez (Asthmatic Kitty) I mean come on.... How good is this!! Hermas Zopoula comes from Burkina Faso in Africa and is the youngest of no less than thirty six siblings. This track comes from the first record I've heard from Hermas. It's called "Espoir" and is a real treat. I don't know if this guy has recorded any previous records and if he had I would imagine they would be virtually impossible to locate but I really think every person alive on the planet should hear this record at least once in their lifetime. Yes it is that good.
8. The Quotes - Lot Lips (Drohnwerks)

I'm finally going to get to see Fight Like Apes next week when they arrive in York for the second time. I missed them the first because I wasn't feeling too good but I won't be missing them this time. They're playing the night after The Wedding Present which will put some strain on the old personal finances but quite frankly... who cares. This track is from the Apes new EP which has quite possibly the longest title known to mankind. It's called the "You Filled His Head With Fluffy Clouds And Jolly Ranchers What Did You Think Was Going To Happen" EP.
