H'Okay Mr Ashmore….
this week i have mostly been singing>
1. The Night I Lost My Head - Maximo Park
From the new album which i ahem*illegally*ahem downloaded…is one and a half minutes of pure ectasy in the form of jumpy, lyrical magic
2. C-C (You Set The Fire) - Tom Vek
Still waiting for the album to arrive in t'post but seen him live three times and this song has been swimming round the radio – is awesome. English Beck sounds good to me, in that he is sounding completely refreshing with his simple sounds that come out of his garage
3. Retreat - The Rakes
Oh my god…this band are awesome..of all the groups pretending to be the new Libertines it is fitting that its these guys who have absolutely no interest in emulating anyone who fit the bill….
Live they are stonking and this song is really understated and addictive.
