Cuckundoo Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Here's a superb 7" in on a new Leeds label called Cuckundoo. Those who
know the Mighty Boosh will be warmed immediately by this reference. The 7"
is by VESSELS and it's an excellent slab of post rock/ experimental indie taking
in elements of Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Efterklang, Mogwai etc. It's a great ...view item
I hope you like our new direction. The last time I saw Vessels was many years ago. Drunk as an idiot I had to scramble out of the room as their post/prog twiddling did unspeakable things to my ears. Thankfully we have both moved on since then and its a testament to Vessels that they have altered the course of their music so drastically without h...view item
I saw these guys twice last year (at the Liverpool Psychedelia Festival & Latitude) and both times I was blown away by the noise produced by the this Italian electro-jazz duo. Think bonkers 'Bitches Brew' era Miles Davis mixed with Krautrock repetition and bleeping electronics.

Another week, another essential slice of creative fun from the murky, festering depths of the Leeds underground music scene, this time from scene favorites and kraut-pop manipulators Quack Quack. Created as a fresh outlet for mega-drummer and Bilge Pump sticksman Neil Turpin, it was obvious from the first time he hit the stage with Stuart Bannis...view item
Plural, single word band names really seem to be the in thing at the moment, don't they? Battles, Grails, Errors, Chromatics, Liars, Planes, Trains & Automobiles. I suppose it's taken over from 'The Somethings' as the template of choice. Come to think of it, 'Strokes' would have been quite a good name, conjuring up images of porn and hospitals....view item
The first release on Cuckundoo Records (not strictly true but according to the catalogue number) is by Escalade AKA Tokyo based artist Greg Sullivan. 'X's & O's' immediately reminds me of Hood. Phil reckons there's a bit of Pinback in there too. His vocal delivery especially makes me think of Chris Adams. It's a gently, breezy track with fairly...view item
