Delta/Alaska
“Vancouver/All Our Friends By The Sea”

If this week delivers much more in the way of good news, then we may just hand over the keys to our yet-to-be-appointed Killing Moon Young Apprentice – we’ve got some kinda scheme going with Lord Sugar, you see – like some kinda retiring Jedi bloke doshing out their lightsaber to a padawan, as we all know its much better to burn out on a high than to fade away (in the non-shedding of one’s mortal coil sense of course, because otherwise that’s just stupid). Aside from exciting pending announcements to be made about this, that, and invariably the other, we were utterly blown away by the news that our special boys in Worship will be playing alongside none other than Primal Scream tomorrow night in London, which if we don’t mentally prepare ourselves for will surely level us to a dwindling emotional heap, which really isn’t going to be much good to anybody or anything, least of all our bearded-man image. A soundtrack to all these sweet times could not come in much better form than North London’s Delta/Alaska, who by the looks of it have been having a rather swell time themselves. Having touched down in several locations in the UK so far, bringing their energetic and odd-time-signatured stylings incorportating the epicness of 65 Days Of Static and the prog-mentality of Mogwai all driven by an integrally-powerful rhythm section to Brighton, London and beyond, we’re guessing such an ambitious sound can only be matched by as-ambitious plans for 2012. Lucky for us, these guys have a couple more shows left in them before we all hibernate for a couple of weeks around the festive season, namely The Lexington on 29th November (supporting Tall Ships) and The Fighting Cocks in Kingston on 6th December. In the meantime, we’ll all just have to make do with these two storming tracks (so much so that we literally couldn’t choose between them, hence a double-whammy TOTD), but WRITE ALL OF THOSE DATES DOWN.
