Something for the Weekend #8

Hands up who likes My Bloody Valentine? Chances are you will probably like the new LP from Ringo Deathstarr. From the first listen it sounds almost identical to last year's Color Trip album, which in turn sounded exactly like New York self-celebrators A Place To Bury Strangers who themselves definitely sound exactly like My Bloody Valentine. But is that such a bad thing?

You can stream Mauve in its entirety  HERE and decide for your bloody selves.

With yesterday apparently marking the 50th anniversary of those ruddy Beatles releasing their first single, Love Me Do, it seems only fair to end this blog post with a tune from them. But which one?  Next Wednesday a few Norwich Owls are taking an outing to see the mighty Fall (and the Undertones and Bearsuit) as the curtain raiser for the Norwich Sound and Vision John Peel Festival which will be on all next weekend in the Fine City.  Set across  tons of venues and bars in the city it should be a great four days of live music. I'm personally looking forward to seeing Liars, Errors, Tall Ships, Public Service Broadcasting, Octagon Court, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and this week's NME cover stars Palma Violets.

I couldn't find a Fall cover of Love Me Do so you'll have to make do with this.
