LAPS - Who Me?

The second release from MIC comes from Ladies As Pimps - LAPS for short - an anarchic Glasgow duo formed by Lady Two Collars of Golden Teacher and Sue Zuki from Organs Of Love. Their duets take centre stage on Who Me?: the vocal performances range from the stretched, soulful projections of Ode To Daughter to the lawless, clipped, sweet & sour, spat-not-spoken word of Edges. Spirited percussion scatters in all directions and bass is smothered in tape delay, as the five tracks beat through Dub, RnB, House, and way beyond, circling around acts like Madame X, The Bug, Stuart Argabright, Francois K, mashing absurdity with dread. Recorded at Green Door studios in Glasgow (where the two met) and layered with the analogue production techniques learned on the first youth unemployment programme there, the energy and charisma of these recordings promise a pretty unique live show when they tour later this year.

Το συγκρότημα ''Χωρίς Περιδέραιο'' ήταν μια τριμελής μπάντα, από τις πρώτες new wave της ελληνικής σκηνής της δεκαετίας του '80. Όλα τα τραγούδια τους είναι με ελληνικό στίχο, τον οποίο και έγραφε ο Νίκος Αγγελής με σαφή επιρροή από τον υπερρεαλισμό. Η ονομασία του γκρουπ ''Χωρίς Περιδέραιο'' έγινε με αφορμή ένα τραγούδι που είχανε γράψει, όπου όμως δεν μπήκε σε κανέναν δίσκο τους αλλά παιζόταν στα live του συγκροτήματος. Το γκρουπ δημιουργήθηκε κάπου στα τέλη του 1982 όταν ακόμα ο Νίκος Αγγελής σπούδαζε στη Νομική και είχε βάλει αγγελία αναζητώντας μουσικούς. Έτσι στην αγγελία ανταποκριθούν ο Κώστας Κόλλιας και ο Παντελής Πετρονικολός. Η αρχική σύνθεση του γκρουπ ''Χωρίς Περιδέραιο'' ήταν η εξής: Νίκος Αγγελής - Φωνή και πλήκτρα Κώστας Κόλλιας - Πλήκτρα και Rhythm Box Παντελής Πετρονικολός - Κιθάρα

El Negro Zumbon (Anna) - Silvana Mangano

"El Negro Zumbón" (also known as "Anna") is a baião song written by Armando Trovajoli in 1951 for the film Anna, directed by Alberto Lattuada and starring Silvana Mangano. In the movie, the song is performed in a night club scene by Mangano, though she is lip-syncing; the lyrics are actually sung by Flo Sandon's. After the U.S. release of Anna in 1953, the Brazilian beat of "El Negro Zumbón" influenced American Pop music. It has also been recorded by many Latin American artists

Chocolat - Ah Ouin

Rencontrer Looloo, Chocolat’s second album after an extended hiatus, finds the band swimming through modal waters, somewhere at the confluence of hard jazz and surf metal, blended with a songwriting tradition that the media, for lack of a better term, often define as folk. A far stretch from the psychedelic kraut explorations of Tss Tss, the new opus is a sort of initiatory account of the band’s journey into orbit. Here Chocolat’s kaleidoscopic visions of space have been replaced by manifestations of stark, shiny white boulders, with edges sharper than a wild jackal’s fangs.

Sparks, known as "Sparko", on bass guitar and John Martin, known as "The Big Figure", on drums.

The Scientists - Last Night

The Scientists are an influential post-punk band from Perth, Australia, led by Kim Salmon, initially known as the Exterminators and then the Invaders. The band had two primary incarnations: the Perth-based punk band of the late 1970s and the Sydney/London-based swamp rock band of the 1980s. The Scientists were much more influential than their minimal commercial success would indicate, lending their influence to artists such as Mudhoney and New York City's downtown indie scene of the early 1990s.

Bad Sports - Inside And Out

Coming out of Texas like a high-intensity twister, Bad Sports play the kind of good, clean punk & roll that the Ramones invented in the mid-'70s and bands have been using as a template ever since. Kings of the Weekend has the usual loud and tight guitars, simple chord progressions, snotty but sweet vocals, and songs about girls, beer, and other teenage issues, but unlike a lesser band that might sound clichéd and reactionary by sticking so close to the established norm, Bad Sports play with enough energy to blast right past any reservations one might have.

Jody Reynolds - Tarantula

Jody Reynolds (December 3, 1932 – November 7, 2008) was an American rock and roll singer, guitarist, and songwriter whose song "Endless Sleep" was a major U.S. top-ten hit in the summer of 1958. His follow-up single, "Fire of Love", peaked at only #66 on the Billboard chart, but the song went on to become a blues-punk classic after being covered by the MC5 and the Gun Club. Reynolds was a regular on the "oldies" circuit and a successful businessman in the U.S. Southwest. Beginning in the 1980s several compilations of his music were issued in the U.S. and Europe, and he enjoyed modest acclaim as a pioneer of rockabilly music. In 1999 Reynolds was honored with both a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs, California, Palm Springs Walk of Stars[1] and induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.
