Null & Void are well worth a listen for fans of the Zounds / Mob type sound (also a bit like early Cure). The lyrics are more about alienation than explicitly anarcho.

Amazing line up!


We're a Manchester based band looking for a drummer. We've been going for a couple of years and are gently evolving to a sound we're pretty happy with - its pretty much a post-punk, indie-rock sort of thing with riffs and nice vocals.
We're currently called HOEK but we recorded some stuff as Rice & Three that we're not especially proud of, although it might give you an idea of how we sound (promise we're better than this now): https://riceandthree.bandcamp.com/track/northern-rail.
The guitarist (me) and the bassist were previously in Invisible Labour and Cash For Your Stories:

One Way Ticket To Cubesville - funny, informative and very well written http://ticket-to-cubesville.blogspot.co.uk/

I've used tapeline for duplication a couple of times - both runs of 50 cassettes - and I've zero complaints other than the occasional communication problems. I've always picked stuff up though rather than have it posted.

I've printed inlays onto thick paper using the work copier before and found the ink wears off around the folded edges. For the last release i did, I got the b/w covers done at a proper printers and the quality is loads better. It was also pretty cheap: 60 2-panel double sided Jcards for £7, thats without getting them cut to size.

Tapeline actually gave us the tip of using ALDI's online photo service to get cheapo colour inlays. They do 4x6" prints for 5p each. https://shop.aldiphotos.co.uk/shop/view … mp;lang=en

I'm heading to Australia in a couple of weeks and will be spending a few days in Melbourne. Any recommendations for record shopping, veggie&vegan eating, nice places to get drunk or seeing bands?

Tenement - Predatory Headlights
I've played it over 100 times, it's the best lp of the last 15+ years. It's like if Bob Mould and Grant Hart wrote songs together rather than individually.

Agreed, its very very good (although best lp of the last 15+ years might be a bit of a push). There's an almost overwhelming amount of standout songs, it deserves a lot of listens. I really love the extended jammy weirdness of side 3 as well, I was afraid these sort of tunes would come across as obvious filler for a double LP but they work.
I can understand how their sound could be a bit marmite though.

things like this are great for recording riffs/practices, particularly if you can control the mic input level. Handy for recording gigs too. http://www.gear4music.com/Recording-and … tAodDHQACg

The last season of Mad Men felt like a bit of a waste of time.
Enjoying watching Girls despite my initial nausea (its pretty much Friends meets Vice mag).

have to disagree there, every episode of this season has been a corker, especially this weeks!

Im not sure if they ever actually split up but saw Poison Idea last night - i certainly never expected I would. They were awesome! I was pretty terrified they would be terrible (and recent live footage didnt do much to reassure) but they totally killed it.

I really enjoyed We Owe You Nothing: Punk Planet Collected Interviews. Good stuff from Jody Bleyle, Los Crudos, Duncan Barlow, Noam Chomsky as well as professional talking heads like Rollins, Biafra, Ian McKaye etc.

I recorded my old band a few years ago, as none of us had any experience in such things i decided to do it as cheap / DIY as possible. I bought a behringer condenser mic and a 2nd hand vocal pre-amp, but other than that just borrowed mics from the practice room we recorded in. I put all the mics through the pa in the room, into a (pretty crappy) DI box, then into a laptop running audacity (i even made a pop-shield from some tights and a coat hangar). We got hold of a copy of amplitube which was great for DI'ing the bass.
The results were pretty good, despite the various limitations meaning the drums could only be recorded to one track and in mono.
