25 records from 2015 we'd rather not hear again »

We listen to brilliant records day in, day out. But we also listen to many that are, um, less good. Indeed, some are so bad that we couldn't even bring ourselves to stock them (hello The Zombies) but mostly these come in the form of big releases which are not assessed critically by an increasingly supine music press. Anyway, given that we don't have any fucks to give about advertising revenues, etc. here they are: the records that let us down most this year.

I've reduced a lot of them: some titles are one-off long-deleted things which were mis-filed or just misplaced...lost, poor, wee wandering things that need your love and fondling. Some are real old obscurities. Others are just plain weird, esoteric nonsense.

Valentine's Day Misery! »

Oh no. Lord, no. It's that time of year again where those lucky enough to be in a relationship are implored to spend spend spend on yet another set of unwanted gifts, leaving single folk horribly left out and isolated. Yes, its Valentine's Day. Taking a look around my local shops, everywhere from the pub to the corner shop to Poundland to Kwik Fit are imploring me to buy something...anything!...or...well the consequences would be too macabre to even think about wouldn't they? So we have collected together a set of records to hopefully make everyone feel a bit better about it, and give you a bit of a chuckle. From Texan post rockersI Love You But I've Chosen Darkness to BVDub's defeatest 'I Will Only Break Your Heart' to Dan Sartain's 'Fuck Friday Fuck Saturday Fuck Sunday Fuck You' here's a list of records which fly right in the face of all that gooey stuff. Oh, and stuck for that last-minute Valentines gift? Why not try a Norman Records gift voucher? (We're semi-serious...and we're not responsible for any subsequent relationship breakdowns.)

Bargainest Rainbow »

Well, there's actual colour on the horizon for our favourite Sheffield experimental music cavern, Blackest Rainbow. Mr & Mrs Rainbow-Black are expecting a screaming baby rainbow at the dawn of 2013 and desperately need some cash to fund their needless expenditure on charcoal-grey nappies, skull-shaped feeder bottles and blood-filled pacifiers. Pair of enormous flour-faced goths they are, honest. So here we have a pre-Xmas sale of some very popular, and not-so-popular back catalogue from this esteemed musical harbinger of DOOM.
