SIX MODULAR PIECES – Appliance
I’m guessing that Appliance have now called it a day – I've certainly not heard of them in some time. This includes my fave track by them (Slow Roller).

FLOORED GENIUS 4 – Julian Cope
I haven’t really given this enough attention. You’d expect a collection of odds’n’sods from a period of almost 25 years to be a bit of a mish-mash, but it sits together really well. Got to give a mention to a couple of tracks – the opening bass heavy I Ain’t Saying and the rather epic The Shrines Are Ablaze from 2005 and 2007 respectively – they’re fab! Only the man himself knows why he didn’t include these two on any of his ‘proper’ albums.

DECADE – Duran Duran
Scoff all you like, there’s some good singles here. Listening to them now I reckon it’s easy to spot the Roxy influence on the likes of Planet Earth and Union Of The Snake with the latter not being a million miles away from Love Is The Drug. Even the verse of Rio, which I’m not terribly keen on, has a hint of Roxy about it. It’s certainly not difficult to imagine Ferry crooning some of these.

TAROT SPORT – Fuck Buttons
This is truly great – Olympians is the track that did it for me this week.

SUPPER – Smog
Ambition is quite possibly my favourite Smog track. I love it!

CRUELTY WITHOUT BEAUTY – Soft Cell
The comeback album that no-one seemed to buy. Shame. I think it’s fab!

YES BOSS FOOD CORNER – Transglobal Underground
Includes Step Across The Edge and Secrets & Distant dreams - two of my fave TGU tracks.
