Dance to the Radio And Brew Records, Split 10" EP Review


Who'd have thought, that out of everywhere in the world, Yorkshire would be such a hotbed for great new music? As this limited EP release shows us, somebody must be putting something in the water up there.

Dance To The Radio, Still Occupied Though You Forgot Album Review


"Dancing at the disco bumper to bumper, wait a minute where's me jumper?" Twenty plus years on and it would appear little has changed at the Indie disco. The songs maybe slightly less humorous but white boys with guitars, joined very occasionally by the odd cool girl, or a stirring synth hook, still fill the floor. As the coolest, sweatiest, cutting edge clubs of the country have been washed down following their nightly marinade of beer and....(I think we'll leave it there) the entrenched DNA of the preceding years music still hangs heavy. From the Sex Pistols and the Clash, through Theatre Of Hate, Killing Joke, The Smiths, New Order, Blur and Nirvana the Indie disco crowd forever changes whilst essentially remaining the same.

How much Ian Curtis, provider of the labels moniker, would appreciate this latest compilation is open to debate. The music is true, often evocative, occasionally challenging but not that distinctive or memorable.

This celebratory album of 13 tracks is surprising in that some of the labels big hitters are not present. If you were expecting Pigeon Detectives or The Grammatics then prepare for disappointment.
