I think theres a fking serious lack of respect round here for Oasis sorting everything out again and delivering the exceptional The Importance of Being Idle. I know its a bit mainstream for you lot and not by erm...garlic rainbow...or something equally mystical and off the beaten track.....

But..

It's a good track and deserves a mention by even the most trendy inhabitants of 'leafy' Hertfordshire.

MK James I have most of them tracks <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> Forgot about 'My Doorbell' that would probably be in there!
Has Cat Power released anything this year? I have the album 'You are Free' and it's ace!

Dweeb are also fantastic, somebody told me they reformed breifly last year, if you haven't already checked them out then check out 'Scooby Do', 'I O U Everything' and their best track 'Oh baby yeah', PM me if you haven't got them and I'll send over the MP3's.

Nothing wrong with Oasis Bald_Eagle just that the days of them ruling the roost have gone, they are still quality but there's a lot more stiff out there that can genuinally compete with it now!
Oh yeah and Lyla was [****!!****] <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

EFMTFTV- as far as I'm aware the Cat Power track is 'officially' released in January, it's doing the rounds on the net and the airwaves at the mo.It's beautiful stuff.

Gig of the year: The Pogues + The Dropkick Murphys last night at the Brixton Academy. Made even more surreal by the appearance of Sheephead from Soccer AM in the bar next to the venue
