---Scritti Politti re-issue of all their early singles on rough trade and demos is solid! Please, do yourself a favor and pick this one up! It's before they went"pop",but man....can't stress enough how much this has been on my personal rotation lately. I have the 4 A-Sides 12", and this collection includes it all. I have to say though, they should have utilized the old artwork from some of the early singles, because the packaging sucks! Other than that however, this record is flawless.

---Ted Leo --great cover, but what is with the "itunes only" release? I love Ted, but come on.

---John Bensons Brooks Trio is a crazed collage of sound bites, poems, gags, "trippy" humor all with a free/avant jazz music backing it. I need to start putting up photos of some of myfavorite record covers on here--- because this is one of them!

---The Hook was an underrated 60s garage/psych group in the vein of Blue Cheer. I don't think their records go for all that much, but then again, I haven't seen many around. BUt if you do....

-- The Evens wins my spot for best new release. The record captures the intensity of their live performance.

-Cranium-- were a great DC artpunk group in themid-late 90s. They have morphed into Brooklyn's Gang Gang Dance. Don't let the name fool you -- they aren't "dance punk". Or at least, though they have all sorts of influences do not come across as the third-rate current crop like Bloc Party.

that's all for now.
