Dave Jennings reviews the singles of the week, 2nd March 1996

[AMP trolling Jennings…AMP trolling Jennings]

If Taylor wanted to punch his face in when he saw his old Singles of the Week column photo then Jennings will surely be searching his house trying to find his knuckledusters when he sees this.

Not much else to say except that I agree with single of the week. Love the Clouds Taste Metallic album that This Here Giraffe comes from. Remember discussing the album rather drunkenly with Brian Molko at a showbiz party I somehow found myself at back in 1997…the preceding track is called Placebo Headwound fact fans! And then I asked him for some Rizlas and, very graciously he obliged, although did question why I needed 3. Hmmm…

Have also added a scan of the Fiddling While Romo Burns tour dates to the Plastic Fantastic interview which I came across inside this issue. There’s been a few, pretty lengthy comments added since it first went up so if you’re interested the link to the post is here.

A rare column photo of the shy and retiring Mr. Parkes here in (ironic?) debonair, Zoolander mode. 8/10 for the ballsy “I haven’t heard it ” Menswear review.

Yeah that’s always the tricky part isn’t it?
