The late 90's brought us some very short but very memorable appearences by some new wave of new wave bands. Some very great records were made by the likes of Tiger and Gay Dad who both put out killer debuts, only to fade in popularity with their follow up records, Tiger's Rosaria which was fantastic and produced by Stephen Street. Gay Dad's Transmission, which wasn't as good as the first one. And that brings us to Warm Jets who never got to put out a follow up to their brilliant album, Future Signs. A lo-fi, new wave album which boast some pretty memorable pop dities in the vein of....hmm..I'm not really sure. Can't put my finger on it. Check out this single and you tell me. These are from the 2 CD set of the single Never Never, which is like the only video I have seen of the band. The b-sides are quite as great as the stuff on their album, but you will become a fan and are glad that somebody has these hard to find tracks.

Only one more week til the new Phantom Planet album finally hits the streets. It's been 4 years already since their amazing self-titled 3rd album. This track is amazing and will be on the forthcoming Raise The Dead album. It appeared briefly on the band's tour EP from last year. They are gonna be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight. Gotta run.
Mystery Jets have a new record out. It's called Twenty One, and it's marvelous. Dad's no longer in the band but it hasn't stopped the Jets from topping their debut with a more percise aproach. My spelling might be atrocious but this track is a standout for me.
This one's been in my head for days recently. An absolute classic pop single from one of the best, New Order. The b-side is also near perfect with amazing guitar from Barney, an all-time favourite New Order track. Also sharing this in tribute to the now defunked (sic) Forced Laugh. You will be missed.
Not really sure what this blog is anymore. Music I like. Music happening in the city I live. By friends and people I know. And sometimes not. Anyhow, I'm still doin' it. Please check my want list after the blog list and help me if you can!
