Eight Legs
Searching For The Simple Life

If I could get to purchase the cd I would be estactic as I'm not really having much luck at the moment. Finding this web page has given me a glimmer of hope thank you. ...view item »

Subliminal Girls
Hungry Like The Wolf

Back to the 80's now with Subliminal Girls doing a mind numbingly painful version of Hungry Like The Wolf. It's a faithful enough cover... almost identical in fact if it wasn't for the awful guitars which sound like someone's doing a big shit all over my head. Also it's been speeded up slightly to give it a bit more energy which hurts me deeply. Ea...view item »

Butterfly Bangs
Junk Sky

Goodddddd! Help me please! Now i've got the Butterfly Bangs. 'Junk Sky' sounds like Gene with some wailing berk who's half Kevin Rowland, half Alex Kepranos over the top of this...this...THIS TURGID NONSENSE! This is just conveyor belt jangle pop for the radio. It's like a frigging meccano set for 4 year olds. Constuct yr own 3rd rate &qu...view item »

Naked Lunch
Military of The Heart

Naked Lunch have a 7"/CD single out on Weekender. It's called Military of The Heart and it's like a more passable Travis or something.......view item »

The Runners
All Over Again

I got yet another 7" here on Weekender from The Runners who belt out an upbeat indie rocker. 'All Over Again' is pretty straightforward accessible gear that sounds like it was made by young men who have a positive outlook on life, full of energy vigour and spunk. This doesn't stand out as being particularly great, just another record by a slew...view item »

Subliminal Girls
Burn Koko/ Mirror

Subliminal Girls:" Burn Koko"(Weekender) is a call to burn down a famous North London club that used to be called the Camden Palace. Sad really, is this just the cynicism of a let down indie boy who doesn't know or care about letting loose. C'mon lads. you'll probably be playing there soon. All chanting, all shouty... a sneering sneer of ...view item »

Look See Proof
Local Hero

Look See Proof have a 7" out called 'Local Hero' on Weekender. It's also on CD single... This sounds like a thousand bands... none of which I can think of as none of them are any good. Catchy indie rock along the lines of Maximo Park, This Ain't Vegas and some emo influenced indie rock style bands I can't think of (see previous sentence...)...view item »

Isolated Atoms
Tell Me What I Want / Here We Go

Haha. How to damn your reputation in the space of one press release. Mention Alan McGee and Peter Hook in the same sentence, not to mention promote yourself as "electro rockers" & "the hottest undiscovered band in the UK". I love it when we get this kind of hollow, empty stadium toss. Isolated Atoms make Editors sound seriou...view item »

Look See Proof
Discussions

After that hard work I had a power nap and now I'm suitably refreshed and spinning the Look See Proof 'Discussions' 7" which is the latest single on Weekender for a grilling. This has a London shouty punky rock thing happening. It does little in the way of entertain me but its far from an atrocity. The B-side has an Andy Theakstone mix of Don'...view item »

The Disciplines
Best Mistake

The Disciplines single 'Best Mistake' is the work of Ken Stringfellow who I'm told is big in the powerpop scene. 7" only on Weekender. This is music for men in their early 50's that still wear leather jackets. ...view item »

The Hussy's
Necklace EP

The Hussy's make some cheeky noises as well.... Very 60's beat sounding indie rock with some foxy lass singing.... They fit in rather well with what The Bishops and Draytones are doing at the mo and if you like it all a bit retro and indie pop ish you'll like this sucker. The 'Necklace EP' is CD only. Fun fun fun.... ...view item »

Shout Out Louds
Our Ill Wills

Didn't know what Shout Out Louds are like but having thrown 'Our Ill Wills' at the stereo and screamed at the failing Japanese technology till it reluctantly trundled into life, i'd say these Swedes make perfectly palatable indie pop with a mature thoughtful edge that's been compared to the Cure & the Shins. It's all masterfully assembled ...view item »

Shout Out Louds
Tonight I Have To Leave It

More men with guitars making indie music. Oh yes... The Shout Out Louds new 7" is called 'Tonight I Have To Leave It' and it has the biggest sticker on a 7" that I've ever seen. It takes up about half the sleeve... it's crazy man. Musically it sounds exactly like Inbetween Days by The Cure and for once there's a record on Weekender which ...view item »

The Author
Dannie

Here's The Author which is this weeks release on Weekender records. It's called Dannie and it might be OK if someone hadn't smothered it to death with a load of shit synth noises. The obsession with synths has to stop soon indie bands as you're making your records sound gash. Cos this isn't really a bad tune at all.... I just got angry there.... ...view item »

The Lines
Domino Effect

To follow that with a 7" on Weekender should be an insult but The Lines' 'Domino Effect' fails miserably in it's quest to deconstruct my sunny demeanour today! This is anthemic and well written indie pop with the big lights in it's sights. I should hate it but there's a real bit of soul & atmosphere hidden in the rather obvious arrangement...view item »

Kingsize
The Daze

Weekender Records have chirpy single out by Kingsize who are a London band that make us think of a less shambolic Libertines. It's fairly commercial indie rock . I struggled with words to write about this so Phil told me to write ' if you like this kind of thing you'll be singing it on the way back from the pub while you're clubbing peoples faces o...view item »

The Indelicates
Sixteen

The Indelicates have a 7"/CDs out on Weekender Music called 'Sixteen'. The woman sounds a bit like Kate Bush... it's not bad this one. One of the better things I've heard on the label. I reckon this will appeal to fans of Fiery Furnaces and hat sort of ridiculously difficult music to pigeonhole. Decent pop music which isn't vaguely fashionable...view item »

The Dash
Broomhouse Road

Here's The Dash with a 7" on Weekender Records. 'Broomhouse Road' is it's name... sounds like it's been inspired by the likes of Ian Dury & The Blockheads, The Clash and The Libertines. That's about as much info as I can bring myself to muster on this one!...view item »

The Indelicates
Julia, We Don't Live In The 60's

The Indelicates:"Julia We Don't Live In The '60s" (Weekender) A pseudo political song about the personal and the social. Somehow I think their tongues are in their cheeks. Typical indie-pop fare from the label that specialize in indie from England, Austria and Germany. May appeal to fans of Hefner. (Ant's gonna start crying if I don't tak...view item »

Butterfly Bangs
On The Street/ Rosemary Works

Butterfly Bangs release their debut single of shambling indie pop. On The Street has hints of Libertines and other similar bands I'm too lazy to think of. This has a supremely catchy chorus and I'm utterly surprised by the fact I don't mind this at all. I was thoroughly expecting to trolly this really hard in it's face the mood I'm in but hey...

The People's Revolutionary Choir
The Breeze That Blows

THE PEOPLE'S REVOLUTIONARY CHOIR have a 7" out called The Breeze That Blows on Weekender Records. This makes me think of Spiritualized....the cover looks just like a Spiritualized record actually. Though the A side pays massive homage to Bob Dylan with the vocals and what sounding just like old Starbucks king (stick it to the man Bob...). Ther...view item »

This Stone Is A Bullet

DOGS: "This Stone Is A Bullet", some like marmalade, others like lemon curd or peanut butter and marmite, The DOGS dem like THE JAM or The Rifles; angry urgent punk-pop. I wonder, do they do 20 min sets at their shows? The flip goes a bit pub-rock with 'man in the street' wordsmithery and stripped down i...view item »
