Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

17 August 2019


Who: Toronto-based foursome that started as an alternative/60s garage rock band but slowly but surely started to move toward their current sonic identity taking cues from Toronto’s local psychedelic scene as well as contemporary bands like Wand, Flying Colours, and The Black Angels

Parallel States of Consciousness‘, out 13th September

Score: ‘Dust‘ is a slow-burning psych-o-delic groove moving viciously like a nasty snake

XTC Released Excellent Third Album ‘DRUMS AND WIRES’ 40 Years Ago…

17 Augustus 2019

40 years ago, on 17 August 1979, British quartet XTC released their third, breakthrough, album DRUMS AND WIRES. It was labelled by many critics as a great new wave LP as it was issued in that musical era. To Turn Up the Volume‘s ears it sounds more like a tremendously creative guitar pop record remarkable for its inventive, clever and masterly songwriting. The LP contained one of their rare, but well-deserved, hit singles with ‘Making Plans For Nigel‘ not written by frontman Andy Partridge, like many of the other songs, but solely
by bassist Colin Moulding (also co-writer with Patridge on a couple of other tracks). The album peaked at #17 in the UK.

Here’s that splendid single…
