"I'm better off now you're gone, now I know you weren't the one" - ah the Parallelograms, if you only knew how right you are.
We've got another mixtape for you to listen to while you get wasted, paint your fingernails, watch your sister cry or whatever else the Porcharitas sing about in that first track. New fave tracks tracks by Colleen Green and Yo La Tengo - their new albums are both so good. That Yo La Tengo is so gentle. Pups is Rose Melbergs new thing which is great, as you would expect, and so is the new Poppets song - really looking forward to this boyfriend-girlfriend duos new LP!
Coffin Pricks, Teenage Burritos, Sauna and Good Throb are great things from last year we just recently caught up with. Teenage Burritos is a current crush and a 7" will be out on Volar in a month or so. Very much looking forward to that. Good Throb is so so angry. That whole 7" is a must buy. Kizza Ping is a Swedish band from 1981 and Dybbuk is a Czech band from 1991. Both all female and both sooo good. Ste McCabe's 'Queer Clubbing' was on the 'Riot Not Diet' compilation last year. Really good and volume 2 called 'Carry On Rioting' just came out so make sure to go buy that.
Then we have a little sweet track by the Chefs we rediscovered while listening to their 'Records And Tea' compilation. Also, smashing post-punk track by Staring Problem. Last but not least we have Guns For Hire - basically a spoof band who tricked Terry Hall of the Specials to fund their demo and everybody else that they were the next big thing. Apparently Elvis Costello sang its praises. It's a great little anthem for those days you want to bash somebody's head in. Like when your disgusting ex texts you at four in the morning.
