  • The time is now. About half a year's worth of work, planning, scheming, plotting, ball/belly-aching, slapping, teasing, singing off key; all of that culminates in what is going to take place over the next week or so. Starting with this big-ass show that we've been obsessing about for the duration. If you know us at all, and in a weird way most people reading this probably do given that a lot of you claim some sort of personal nexus with this open-journal style approach to chatting shit about new bands, you'll appreciate how much effort it has taken to keep our mouth's shut for the most part about, well, everything. Which obviously isn't the case right now. At this precise moment, we are the single most annoying entity on social networks. We can sense your sighs, your tuts, your "will [they] ever fucking shut up about the fucking Koko show". Much like the Scots recently, no we fucking won't. Sod a half a year's worth of work. Given what we can hopefully share with the world in the next couple of weeks, it feels like our entire life has been...

[Track Of The Day: American Wrestlers "I Can Do No Wrong"]

  One of the guys in Radio On once told us, to paraphrase (you don’t ever wanna know what they really said, so let’s just concentrate on what they meant), “[you] crap rainbows”. Admittedly we didn’t really know what the guy was on about at that point. “Wrong”, we said. “We crap normal. No rainbows … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Pretty Taken "Dangers Of Winter"]

  Y’know how certain people just cannot function or indeed relax unless certain things are sorted and/or in-place? For example, to one extent we know at least one person driving themselves and quite a few people around them slightly nuts unless they find Mr. Right in their lives and will stop at nothing until that … Read more

We could have really done with being in the office a bit earlier today. Double release day. Had to do promo and interviews and shit. Ironically these seem to be more aimed at us than the actual bands involved in our much-loved New Moons: Volume II. But, hey, we didn’t. We had a snooze. That’s … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Hana "I Don't Want To"]

    Feeling particularly sorry for ourselves this drab Sunday afternoon. Yes, of course we went out last night and of course we are in our standardised-state of feeling a bit wrong as a result. Yesterday in itself was a debacle from start to finish. We didn’t get to completing our long-awaited task of putting … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Crystal Sister "Take My Hand"]

Two main bitches today. Well, there is a third, but that is to do with the cable for the telly in our living room going missing, which suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks (Tim was nearly in tears about it this morning. Kid likes his Great British Bake-Off, y’know?). Primary bitch is visas. Fucking tourist visas. Just, like, let us … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Stilts "Rat Eyes"]

  Fuck. Tired. Back is buggered. Moving is a real pain in the A. And the B. And the C, etc. Given our to-date high-ratio of throwing money at problems that most people deal with in a hands-on kind of way – for example, moving rates highly in this list of accolades, but also cleaning, … Read more

[Track Of The Day (Premiere): Maybug "Early Morning Is The Time"]

  If we had a quid for each time we’ve uttered the powerful phrase “it’ll be fine” over the last week or so leading up to our inevitable habitual move “just up the road” from where we are currently parked – surrounded by labelled boxes, industrial-strength bin liners, and some other rather non-descript boxes in … Read more

[Release: Looks Announce New Single "Back To The Fire" Via Killing Moon]

Hey alright, it’s Ross from Killing Moon, London’s infinite repeat. How we feeling out there? How’s your drive time commute? I need a saga, what’s the saga? Well…its not Songs For The Deaf today… its Looks, and Killing Moon are absolutely thrilled to be able to reveal that we have the privilege of releasing their second single … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Fictonian "Full Circle Influence"]

We picked a hell of a fucking day to start packing up, well, everything. For it is flat-moving day. Or, rather, Tim has just decided this for us. He lured us into a false reality of giving and fraternal love by making us breakfast at 1pm; once our defences were lowered by the delicious chocolate … Read more
