Poino “Bon Ick Voyeur” LP (Horse Arm) IN FOR DISTRO

Second and, as it turns out, last LP from London swine molesters. Never again will you witness John Greenhorn’s seven limbs independently whirling over a once-proud drumkit. Never again will you heave as Gaverick De Vis gleefully howls coo-coo-for-caca across six-string spankage. Never again will you lurch to Ross Blake’s fuzzed grooves, at once a

Sloath “Deep Mountain” LP (Riot Season) IN FOR DISTRO

Due to the office’s involvement in this release, we’ll refer you to the official Riot Season blurb: “In place of the wide, white spaces of the debut, shorter tunes slam corkscrew riffage home with a new-found rhythmic propulsion.

Something pretty Christmassy about this LP, even when they’re doing those sickening, heaving chords on the fade-out of “Ex-Friends”. £12 to you (in the continued absence of an online shop situation, email yer order to info@endless-records.com

Detective Instinct “Black Floral” LP (Sickroom) IN FOR DISTRO

Cool, mysterious pop skewers, recalling at times Position Normal or Jazzy Jon And The Denizens Of The Deep, alternately fronted by Mike Watt, Kevin Branstetter, Jad Fair and ex-Ex man G.W. Sok, amongst others. Star vocal turns, though, come from The Champagne (on “We’d All Love Wheels”), who sounds for all the world like he’s

IRMA VEP returns to Brighton on his way back from playing something swish in Paris. His new LP is out on Golden Lab early next year, and apparently there’s another one already half in the bag for someone else. So there’ll probably be a load of ace new tunes. Here’s one off “Songs Of Guilt”
