After last weeks mainly acoustic offering I am offering some uplifting tunes tonight – Some. What better way to start thatn skanking with Desmond Dekker

I have heard 2 amazing 7″s this year. Fawn Spots and Stay Clean Jolene. I don’t think either were released in 2013 but it was when they were introduced to my ears. Stay Clean Jolene gt a special mention on my blog it is so good

John Dagger is singer in Stay Clean Jolene. He also fronted the Great St Louis whose album In your Own Time is just waiting to be listened to. Have you not heard it yet?

I played a couple of tracks off New Model Armys new lp last week, I’ve been listening to it and Barry McCormack on rotation for a lot of the week. I also hear NMA are playing in Dublin on December 6 so you’ve no excuse but to go. Paranoid Visions are doing an acoustic set on the night too.

I went to see Paranoid Visions last night launching their new labum with Steve Ignorant. The sound let them down a bit but the energy and anger was as evident as ever. Thankfully I was able to get a download as I bought the beautiful blue vinyl. Steve Ignorant is getting fairly proficient these days Slice of Life are doing some gigs, interesting stuff too

As I mentioned I got the new Barry McCormack album. Barry has been around the Dublin scene a fair few years since Jubilee were bashing out their stuff. A modern day story teller you an just imagine walking into your local bar and Barry and his mates will be banging out a few traditional tunes in the corner. Then you can over to them and talk punk rock

Just in case you think it’s all a bit soft I’ve thrown in the shorts – Bring me the Skinned and Mutilated Corpse of bear Grylis

Shorebirds are always good for a bop. Their It’s Gonna Get Ugly album is out a while on No Idea, plent of screaming and singing along. Just like Latterman

I don’t think I’ve ever listened to Nomeansno and thought there is something better to do at this moment. Every song, every record is just too good. Live to, amazing. All roads lead to Ausfahrt is a much ignore record. Of course when you have to sompete with wrong you will always struggle

We can’t stick with such a tempo or you will never settle down. Hidden highways have a new album out on the excellent Out On A Limb label from Limerick. This is from that record

De Kift are an interesting bunch from the netherlands. They have been around for nearly as long as the ex and are now less eclectic. Where the ex find solace in angular guitars de kift challenge with myriad of styles from the fairground. Their Vrienden 7″ is all in Dutch so I can’t offer any information I’m afraid

Crimes are new to me. They were on a compilation for the Fest 2012 which is an annual gathering of many good musical things in florida.

I see theat the Enablers are playing next week in the grand Social. I tried to get some stuff digitally but all i have is from a different band of the same name. Their Sweet Fuck All album is pretty cool though

Lantern are another new one for me. Psych rock that I’m not so sure about. Look upon it as my dedication to Lou Reed if you will

Opposite to Lantern are paranoid Visions – Another song fromt he new album in an attempt to get you to check it out

NOFX end the show (bar pelican) with their tune to Ronnie + Mags. Wonder what it’s about??
