Now I'm belatedly working my way through the list of stuff I'm not familiar with I have to say the woman Newsom has a lot to answer for.
Apart from Veronica Falls who I'd kinda heard anyway, haven't come across anything to excite me as yet. Have found some stuff to avoid like the plague though but. Not moaning, plenty of great stuff there but (and this is partly GM's and 6Music's fault) I find fewer new 'discoveries' each year. Where's this year's Gilbert, Monkey Swallows the Universe, Cowbois, Radio Luxembourg, Treefight?
Just don't get Low, the Horrors or the Pastels. And as for Swans. Well each to his own eh?
Hit me with your recommendations. Scando twee pop welcome!
