The Good Suns – ‘Pop Wound’

The Good Suns are currently buzzing from the success of this great viral video for forthcoming single “Pop Wound”, featuring modern day tragi-comic anti-hero, former MP Lembit Opik, perfecting the art of “Dad Dancing”!

Catch them at HEROES on Saturday 10th March!

Maribou State – ‘Olivia’

Do you remember when 808 State released Pacific 808 and Groove Armada released At The River and Bonobo did that one?  Every ten years a trippy electro classic gets released and this could be it for this decade.  Let’s hope it doesn’t get lost in a flood of information.

Hard-Fi – ‘Good For Nothing’

Hard-Fi return with this big tune and statement. Trouble is, it charted at no.51!  But that’s just symptomatic of a media run by snobs and toffs schooled in the art of the obscure and who consider writing a pop tune to be a crime.  And all that the culturally squeezed middle classes are left with is a choice between moronic X-Factor and tuneless The Horrors. 

Sunlight Service Group – ‘Flying Head’

I don’t know anything about this band.  Despite the boom in global social networks and proliferation of portable communication devices, like most bands these days they seem completely impossible to contact.  What a shame.  As for the tune it might as well be a Cream number.  Then again, Cream were arguably the greatest band of all time so that’s absolutely fine by me. Terrific video of some long-hairs on wheels too!
