More of the usual for another week. We’re delighted to feature our old friends Ceiling Demons and their latest which is of the standard we’ve come to expect. We also have Demons, not resident on the ceiling so far as we can tell. The latest from Sugar Horse is possibly their best yet – we like that – while Deathretro and DEAFDEAFDEAF follow in similar fashion. And there’s a thumper from Alabama 3 in there to keep things bouncing. Dig in.

Trying to get back to something like regular service. Track of the week is that Baba Ali one. He’ll be supporting house favourites Yard Act on tour. BBXO, Phobophobes and Surfing Magazines are all back. Amateur Trepanning is a great name, backed up with the tunes. All is good. Dig in.

Having missed yet another week because of life, here’s another bumper catch-up show.
We kick off with another track from The Problem Of Leisure, an album of Gang Of Four covers by way of tribute to the late Andy Gill. Idles do Damaged Goods and it could quite easily have been written for them. A new one from house favourites John is probably the best thing we’ve heard this year to date. The Shadracks may sound like a Billy Childish outfit, but it’s actually his son, so that explains that. The Jim Bower track sums up how we see life since early 2016. There’s all sorts of other great things in between with a particular shout to the ever-impressive Milk Bottle Sympathy who you really need to be all over.

So much goodness in here it’s difficult to pick out highlights. Some new old stock from house favourites Benefits, Herbert Groenemeyer with a Gang Of Four cover from a forthcoming compilation by way of tribute to Andy Gill, a new Stranglers record we actually like, one off the new EP from Murderers which we’ve been very much looking forward to, a selection of home-grown rap from the West Midlands, Scotland and Yorkshire… It’s all good, it’s all fresh.

360 episodes, we’ve come full circle.
Bumper episode seeing as we missed last week with impromptu bank holiday Other Things Going On. We kick off in the north-east with Jister and Benefits each with their own slice of frustration at The Absolute State Of Things. Another one of the very excellent Dry Cleaning LP and there’s a second EP from Milk Bottle Sympathy. Blokeacola continues to fill our inbox with new tunes and we’re more than happy to receive them. There’s a Specials cover from our favourites Yard Act (their EP arrived here last week and it’s mint and you should buy it). Lou Barlow has new stuff out and the closing two tracks are the big highlights. Lucid Dream and Sons Of Kemet both have LPs coming out that we’re sure will feature in the end of year round-ups.

7-year olds are taking over the world. And here to prove it are Black Salmon and stone cold fuzz rock-out Chihuahua Power. That is great.

Lots going on this week. Main thing this week is that Italia 90 track which is bloody marvellous. That one from The Broken Orchestra and Joe Hakim is damn fine too. Hartnoll and Young speak for us all, Wyatt Riot have a message for us all ahead of the local elections.
We open up with Mad Daddy from the musically-underrepresented Isle of Man. Our pal Samh recorded his track in the countryside round here in Huddersfield so that’s genuine bird song you can hear on that. Adam Walton has a new EP out and we’ve got two tracks off that because we couldn’t pick just one. There’s an old one from The Nightingales because they’re debut LP has had a reissue. Their new single has a cover of Use Your Loaf on it too. You should probably buy both, and watch King Rocker while you’re about it.
Everything else is great too, so dive in as we continue the search for your next favourite band.

Having relocated to a new House of Lies over the last couple of weeks, we are back with a bumper 21 tracks as we attempt to clear out the backlog that grew while we were off.
Main thing this week is new Working Men’s Club. The first album was a belter and whenever a new one emerges, it looks set to be a must-have on the basis of X. Other highlights are new Beak> and The Surfing Magazines. Milk Bottle Sympathy deserve your ears, there’s a new one from the highly-rated Murderers and old friends Eli Hermit and Faithful Johannes are back. Everything here is excellent so give yourself a treat.

Double mirror ball references this week and 13-year old Alex Spencer embarrasses us all by being that good that young. We’re very much on board with new Home Counties and Blanketman’s suggestion to leave the south. William Doyle is back, this time not as East India Youth. There is an inherent problem with having the word youth in your band name and there’s an essay to be had about that for anyone who has the time. We mean you, Thurston Moore. Digression….
Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke has a new long player out which is very good and this week we have two neo-classical pieces to close us out. Really getting into that vibe.

Probably going to have a couple of weeks off because, y’know, life. Back soon.


Highlights this week: All of it. New one from Vukovar, from friend of the show Paul Foster in his Night Programme guise. A remix of Pariis Opera House which hasn’t seen light of day before. And following from last week’s neo-classical stuff, some more of that kind of thing, this time from Neil Cowley.

We open this week with a polished version of a shed-based noodle from the estimable Boothby Graffoe, originally made in lockdown (remember them? Oh) and now available to purchase as a single. And you should. We also fucking hate banana bread.
We work through to some neo-classical from Rutger Hoedemaekers who had been working with the late Johann Johannsson, an artist through whom we got into that kind of thing, and you can really pick up the cues there. In between, Blokeacola, Faithful Johannes and Sir Robert Orange Peel continue to make innovative stuff and we’re indebted for their emails this week alerting us to new material. The latter has a new LP out soon, we’ve had a cheeky preview and we’re fully on board with it.
We’ve got Chiedu Oraka and Leddie MC from up here in the frozen north, a big hello to Eli Hermit who we love. And friend of the show Rob Crisp, in his Rib Corps guise, has some timely advice for us all. It’s been tough, we’re getting there. Just hang on in there.
