As a dutiful indie kid back in the day I saw Ten Little Girls on Snub and *loved* it – even the rap, something of which I was still very suspicious of back then.  Bought that E.P. and saw them live once (twice?) but never bought an album and I’m not sure why thinking back.

Listening to it right now it sounds like Butch Vig used Curve as the template for Garbage and given the fact that the tracks are now nearly 20 years old it sounds remarkably ‘en vogue’ to me.

OK so this is what I’m going to do. Pick a copy from random year. Scan the cover and all pages inside that seem worth it, then move on to another issue. This way there’s a sense of randomness and I get to have just 2 piles, scanned and not scanned.

So I picked this up initially because I have a friend who’s mate’s with Dean, but skimming through this now it feels like there’s something of interest on every page. ET’s not going to appreciate being reminded of the cover story interview he did with The Cranberries though. So tune in again and hold your breath – because Midway Still ARE coming back – at least in print anyway.
