One of this year’s best new labels, People In The Sky, are on a roll right now what with Friendly Fires almost certain to be one of next year’s biggest indie/dance crossover acts and the likes of Wax Stag keeping it ferociously fresh. They’re finishing the year on a high too with the signing of Plugs, one of the many projects out there involving Morgan Quaintance from the shitly named but annoyingly fun Does It Offend You, Yeah?
The EP is out in February but we’ve got an advance taste of it for you now. The lead track That Number is a surprisingly downtempo slice of nicely shambolic disco punk with a nice squelchy acid line running through it and reinforces my belief that 2008 is going to be all about the sub 120 bpms. Yuksek pops up for a mix that takes you into what should be familiar French territory by now and the whole things is finished off with the pleasantly awkaward sounding Transatlantic Air Miles.
Now seriously a gold star to whoever could have predicted so many killer records would have come out of St. Albans this year…

Ok no posts for a month as my dayjob has been keeping me far too busy but with things starting to calm down it’s time to poke my head back out into the real world and show off my utterly piss poor new haircut, seriously can someone please recommend me a decent milliner otherwise I’m going to be staying in crying till it grows back.
Assuming I can find a decent hat I shall be at the Dogstar this Saturday for the Audisushi Winter Ball, New Order’s Peter Hook is on the decks alongside the likes of The RGBs (live), Suicide Dogz, Tony Poland, Disastronaut, Sean Mclusky and myself. Saturdays are always lively down there so it should be a good one.
