you are my guiding star

Just thought I'd start and write about some of my favourite records of the last year. This first one Dying Star by The Luxembourg Signal arrived just before Christmas and is a drifting on a cloud kind of pop song with an insistent 60's -ish lead guitar with some vocals that are very dreamy. It's a remix by Robert Hampson (LOOP/MAIN) of a song from the bands debut LP. It's on a beautiful clear vinyl 7" and available to buy from Test Pattern Records here

A moment worth waiting for

I'm currently reading Kevin Pearce's excellent book A Moment Worth Waiting For. Every now and again I've been posting youtube links on my Facebook page of new songs I'd discovered whilst reading the book. I think I may have been annoying my Facebook friends so I've decided to post stuff on my blog again. This first one is a couple of songs by The Gist who were the band Stuart Moxham formed after The Young Marble Giants.I really should have heard these songs long before now. Shameful really!
