What's Goin' On

Sorry for the delay in the next issue of the rag... we've been working on a book which is out in October through Orion. It's about pubs, it's rolling at the moment, more news when we have it. In the meantime, we're saying that these things are all good...

Underworld's last album esp "Faxed Invitation"
John Niven's "Kill Your Friends"
Robert Plant & Alison Krauss "Raising Sand"
the Goldfrapp album (surprised ourselves there)
anything on Brown Punk Records
The Mess Hall
the new Howies catalogue
and, finally, this bit of Italian Balearic Beat from 1974...

End Of An Era

Once DJ'd to Castro, played a Queens Of The Stone Age record ("Regular John") while he walked in the room. What a bloke. Don't think he noticed the music, but hey, the music noticed him. Socialism salutes a true rock 'n' roller!

Monday, February 04, 2008


for the slack service over the last month. We've been working on the first Socialism Mag related book, The Rough Pub Guide, touring the UK drinking in some of our finest hostelries (and they call it work). Full service will resume in the next week or so, with (hopefully), news of a new issue of the mag almost ready for the printers. In the meantime, we're loving

Airbourne "Stand Up For Rock N Roll"
the Welsh hammering England in the Rugby
"Stay Free" by Black Mountain
the Catcall EP
all Wetherspoons pubs pre sun-passing-yard arm
"Faxed Invitation" off the Underworld album
the Wales England match again (it was that good)
new stuff by The Vines
The Mess Hall
the return of Lost to the telly
and, fuck it, one last time - Wales 26 England 19.
We won't be so fucking smug when we lose every other match in the 6 Nations, but hey, this week's pretty good.
