3. The Starlets - Radio Friendly (Stereotone)

In addition to the two London gigs listed below the band will be playing a "secret" warm-up gig at the Halt Bar in Glasgow on 4th April. So now ya know...

12. The Wendy Darlings - Eleasy (Is My Fantasy But Wendy D Is Paying Me) (Lost Music)
The Wendy Darlings are my favorite band at the moment. I really hope they find their way over to our shores before the year is out and while I'm being greedy an album wouldn't go amiss. This track comes from the current E.P. "We Come With Friendly Purposes" which is available through Lost Music and needs to be part of your life.
13. Church Of Misery - Shotgun Boogie (Rise Above)
Taken from the album "Houses Of The Unholy" which will be released through Rise Above on 20th April. The Japanese band are soon to embark on a European tour which reaches the U.K. in May. See the bands Myspace for more details.
14. The Early Years - Like A Suicide (Sonic Cathedral)
Taken from the compilation album "Cathedral Classics Volume One" which is a collection of all the tracks from the first eleven Sonic Cathedral singles and includes tracks from the likes of Mark Gardner, The Tambourines, Kyte, School Of Seven Bells, Japancakes and loads of others who's names I've temporarily forgotten.

16th April - London, The Legion
19th April - London, The Social
24th April - London, St Giles In The Fields Church
How nice would it be to see some nights outside London?
15. Wry - Disorder (Monstro Discos)
Taken from the Brazilian outfit's debut album "She Science".
16. The Coathangers - Bury Me (Suicide Squeeze)
This album is immense. I can't think of any other word for it. If you like your music with attitude this record is for you. A suitcase full of squirrels wouldn't be as pissed as this lot. The album is called "Scramble" and can be ordered from the Suicide Squeeze website. I've just noticed there is a limited edition yellow vinyl version which I think I need to buy.
17. 16 Bit - In The Death Car (Boka)
You might remember a few weeks back I played a track which featured a chainsaw revving all over the place. Well this track comes from that self same E.P. and is in fact the title track. There's a vocal mix of this as well but I think the voice just spoils it.
