It’s been a busy week as the lack of regular posts attests so I’ve not read through this, however I suspect it is very much of its time.

Regular readers might notice I’ve got a cute little indie ‘amp’ button badge up. My friend littlepixel has kindly worked it up for me. Please do visit his blog where he’s currently in the middle of ‘reimaginitizing’ a series of classic record covers in the mode of 1950/60’s Pelican book covers. Here’s just one of them. Leave him comments and love and I’m sure he’ll pixel more for you. G’wan he lives for this sort of thing.

Primal Scream: Screamadelica

Oh and Simon from the most excellent Sweeping the Nation has added the 432 available tracks from Garry Mulholland’s splendid “500 Greatest Singles Since Punk And Disco”, as a Spotify playlist here: http://www.sharemyplaylists.com/this-is-uncool-the-500-greatest-singles-since-punk-and-disco/

The Boiler by Special AKA is just finishing up. Harrowing and still shocking. Listen if you’ve not heard it before.

Right I’m off to stick my new badge on to my charity shop cardy now so I can do some of my famed, doomed Morrissey dancing this weekend.

14 years ago before the Appletons, the tattoos and the drugs. Yeah ok…maybe not before the drugs.

Another bullet in the chamber for Mueller, which given the intro to this piece, seems an even more appropriate metaphor than usual. Elsewhere Calvin Bush reviews a Mo’ Wax compilation and ET reviews Da Brat.

Were Gene were any good or not? Were they a Rymans league version of The Smiths? Who cares when the always readable Taylor Parkes is ranting.
