HAVE YOU FED THE FISH?
15 November 2002 / XL / 15 Trk CD
:: Badly Drawn Boy ::
More upbeat, rounded and often poppier than “Bewilderbeast”. Quite right that he receives awards and appreciation - the best album yet ?

ALL TEN FINGERS
15 November 2002 / XL / 15 Trk CD Album
:: Andy Votel ::
Jazzy noodlings for the arthouse loft dwelling set or cutting edge nu-dance ?

DEMO
01 November 2002 / Demo / 3 Trk CD
:: The Mode ::
Mingles in some very early Deep Purple, Hendrix influences with a beat pop psychedelic vocal line

DEMO
01 November 2002 / Demo / 5 Trk CD
:: The Meddler ::
Quirky tracks with a touch of indie sounding quite bohemian in places maybe Twisted Nerve meets Beautiful South ?

BOOBY TRAP
01 November 2002 / Promo / 4 Trk CD
:: The Vanities ::
Space Tourist” spits in the face of Steve Strange and Phil Oakey - literally launching itself into the atmosphere with its bouncing beats and celestial melodies

MUSIC
01 November 2002 / Demo / 3 Trk CD
:: NRG ::
Difficult to assess quite transcendental music - long and repetitive but in some way that seems to be the point.

INTO THE SUN
01 November 2002 / Demo / 1 Trk CDR
:: Minus One Raver ::
If you’ve only one bullet, don’t use it to shoot yourself in the foot.

LOW TEMP EP
01 November 2002 / Demo / 5 Trk CD
:: Grandscape ::
A good slice of electronic, epic soundtracking that’s lives up to the name of the band

MECHANICAL BOX EP
01 November 2002 / Demo / 3 Trk CD
:: The Urban Blue ::
Prog-rock influenced electro – Good time double edged pop

SAMPLER
01 November 2002 / Promo / 6 Trk CD
:: RAM ::
Lazy pop with a late 80’s indie feel with plenty of twists and modernity, at times succeeding in achieving a complex psychedelic Beatlesque sound.

REVPORL STRINGS THE BLUES
01 November 2002 / Contrade / Cd Album
:: Rev Porl ::
John Cooper Clarke moshing with earlier Manc acts like The Orch, together with Superstrings intelligent and empathic use of music-tech

SUN FROM THE SKY
01 November 2002 / Booney Tunes / 3 Trk CD
:: Change Nothing ::
Wises’s falsetto voice is underpinned by a dramatic track - a quiet intro then breaks into the carefully arranged effected guitars

CHORLTON MUSCLE
01 November 2002 / Demo / 2 Trk CD
:: Silva Surfa ::
A good attempt at fusing “Loser” with “Heaven Is A Half Pipe” with some slacker beats and USA West Coast electronica via a back street northern town

DON’T WANT TO BE EP
01 November 2002 / Demo / 4 Trk CD
:: Precinct (2002) ::
More than a good share of fresh ideas - doesn’t quite add up in places, but strong potential

STAR TURNS
01 November 2002 / Demo / 3 Trk CD
:: The Blazing Snowmen ::
A very strange case of ballroom psychosis, but whichever way you look at it, highly original.

DESIRE
01 November 2002 / Promo / 3 Trk CD
:: DC10 ::
A mid air collision between “That Petrol Emotion” and rough sawn rock
