MYSPACE PAGES FOR SOME OF MY CURRENT FAVOURITES269 weeks ago
 
I'll try and add to this on a regular basis - please let me know if any of the links don't work.

MY TOP FIVE

THOMAS TANTRUM http://www.myspace.com/thomastantrum
One of Marc Riley's favourite bands and hopefully they'll release an album soon. The debut single 'Shake It, Shake It' is terribly infectious and probably my favourite single from last year, but I recommend 'What What What', which reminds me of early Orange Juice.

VELOFAX http://www.myspace.com/velofax
Jersey's finest (and probably only) post-punk krautrockers. They have released two eponymous albums and I recommend them both. My recommended track is 'Jack's Emporium'.

FANGS http://www.myspace.com/fangsfangsfangs
Saw these supporting Sons and Daughters and they were amazing (The Queen screams and Marko plays a bass guitar with only 3 strings). I recommend 'Panic Attack', although the session version from Marc Riley's Brain Surgery is much better and more similar to the live version (unfortunately this has disappeared from their page).

DAVID CRONENBERG'S WIFE http://www.myspace.com/davidcronenbe...
London band who Marc Riley won't get in for a session because they're too creepy. Dark yet amusing lyrics, I'd recommend 'Harry The Morgue' from the songs on their MySpace page. I stand corrected in my orthopaedic shoe - he has given in to pressure and got them in for a session on August 18th.

BITCHEE BITCHEE YA YA YA http://www.myspace.com/bbyayaya
Only heard about this French electro group a couple of weeks ago, having noticed they were due to play a gig in Bristol. They're amazing and should be huge in an ideal world. Great live act that you can't help but dance to. I recommend 'Before' which was their opener when I went to see them and everyone was up dancing.
