ARTIST NAME / SONG TITLE / AMOUNT OF YOU TUBE PLAYS ON CHART PUBLICATION
1 Silicon Buddhas – Metal Legs (44)
Debut single from this lot mid last year. Love that 1990 Euro / Italo rock house sound and there’s sirens too. Please let this style come back. We love it.
2 Mushapata –Zambe Aponiyo (60)
The promo info says…….” A Fantastic mixture of Brakka, Reggae & Afrobeat Recorded between 1980 and 1984 from the underground Afropean boxer Mushapata”. It is a thing of beauty and genius, wish we’d known about this in the days we were sort of rocking dancefloors. Permanent rotation here that’s for sure.
3 Blue Boy – Disco Bunny(119)
Released back in 1998. Rather beautiful we must say.
4 Russell Haswell – Special Loud Version – feat Sue Tompkins (376)
We do love Diagonal records. Not only do they generally make quite genuinely odd records they manage to persuade people to listen to them.
5 Straight Arrows – Out & Down (448)
Our weekly sort of garage outing. Like this one .
6 Horace Sprott – Early One Morning The Blues Come Falling Down (528)
This is culled from the comp “Music from the South, Vol. 2: Horace Sprott,” 2004 Smithsonian Folkways Recordings / 1955 Folkways Records. We hadn’t heard of him before, like the Leadbelly vibe
7 Gloria – The Rain is Out (594)
Out on Cornershop’s label, Ample Play and from their mini-LP ‘Oîdophon Echorama’. We’re guessing it was released in December. We love that Texas late sixties garage guitar sound they have too. All in all another classic from Ample Play.
8 Olden Yolk – Beige Flowers (624)
Cranberries? Sundays? , not really sure. What do you think? Great band name though.
9 Ashley Reaks – Football Results (740)
Ashley’s take on the football results is a bizarre nitrous oxide invention. Perfect BOP fare.
10) Soccer Mummy – Last Girl (924)
Thought we better continue the football theme, with this nice little indie ditty.
