From Dora Maar’s forthcoming cassette, their debut release, details TBA.

Dora Maar is a band based in Leith, Edinburgh, consisting of two Andrews, an Erika and a Liam. We like Postcard Records, Vic Godard & The Subway Sect, The Monochrome Set, Television Personalities, Magazine, The Pastels, Felt, The Velvet Underground, Pulp, Chic, Jean-Luc Godard, Luis Buñuel, Fernando Pessoa and Charles Baudelaire.

Review I wrote of The Pastels’ most recent record, Slow Summits, for Blasted…

Rather lengthy review I wrote for a website (and hopefully a physical publication at some point) that I’ve started.

Who knows, I may well expand it to an even lengthier and even more in-depth analysis at some point in the future (I keep hearing more things and coming up with more to say, it’s a nightmare).

If you’re lazy and want a rating, it’s either 11/10 or ?/10 (or both).

A new Scott Walker album is due on 3 December -Bish Bosch. I can barely contain myself… I can’t remember the last time I was this excited about a new album. Could it be as brilliant and terrifying as The Drift? We’ll find out in ten weeks…
