current listening....

1. The Fall - Peel Sessions box set (words will not suffice).
2. Duke Spirit - Love is an Unfamiliar Name (really liking the singer's voice, fantastic)
3. Maximo Park - A Certain Trigger LP (a much better album than I expected, even after some cracking singles)
4. Clor - Love and Pain (kind of like Bis crossed with the Pixies, and great for it)
5. Gorillaz - Demon Days LP (wow, confusing and brilliant, and really surprising)
6. Electrelane - Bells (from their ace new 'Axes LP')
7. New Fast Automatic Daffodils - Pigeonhole LP (worth seeking out, honestly)
8. The Departure - Dirty Words (or 'All Mapped Out', I can't remember which it is I like)
9. Siouxie and the Banshees - Arabian Nights (from their Ju-Ju LP, which I've just rediscovered)
10. Assistant - Known to Run (sloppy rehearsal out-take which sounds brilliant, though I'm clearly biased).

I like Liela Moss's voice on the new Duke Spirit single too, but musically I find it a bit nondescript. Not sure whether I'll bother with the album. Maximo Park, on the other hand - 'Graffiti' is excellent, so I'll be buying A Certain Trigger sometime soon. And in any case, us Geordies have to stick together. It's only right that I should champion one of the first decent bands ever to come out of Newcastle - the city's musical heritage makes for appalling reading.

Gosh, New Fast Automatic Daffodils. It's a while since I've heard anyone mention that name.

Oh, and Arabian Nights is one of those songs that when it comes on my iPod, I have to repeat play about five times to get the nagging melody of the chorus out of my head . . .

I've got a (pretty recent) single CD of Fall Peel Sessions, which goes up to 1995, I think. Does the box set just bring us up to date, or are there more earlier ones, that kind of thing?

It's 6 CDs and about a hundred songs, so it's absolutely comprehensive - it's the best £25 I've spent in years...

Wow. Yes, a bit different to what I have...
