In the meantime here's a classic from Spandau Ballet.

Owing to the fact that I already have a copy of the Moon Song 12" I instead will be buying a copy of this little beauty from BIG NED on Optimo Music. The Optimo.Singles.ClubAnd.Related.Recordings or OSCARR appears to have ended and replaced with Optimo Music and this is the first release. It doesn't take much to sell this to me. Optimo have the best taste in music in the world BAR NONE and thus you know you need this single. There's only 500 of them IN THE WORLD and it sounds like David Lynch jamming with Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds in the dirty basement of the black lodge. Proper raw this is. Grab a whisky and sit back.
Available at Rough Trade:
Previews at Myspace:
Also out this week and worth having a listen to is the new 12" from Mike Simmonetti's cooler than cool Italians Do It Better label. It's a new artist by the name of BOTTIN and is called No Static. There are 750 of these 12s pressed and if you want a piece of black plastic for gliding round your warehouse apartment to in a slo-mo-italo-groovy-disco fashion then this will probably float your boat more than the SCARY Big Ned.
Preview it here:
In other news Detachments are playing the Proud Galleries this Thursday evening which should be a rather glorious evening of live music. We have a special £4 concessions list for this event so if you want to come along and catch the band just let use know via email / facebook / myspace. Detachments are onstage around 9pm.
Over and out.

Speaking of Dissident the new 12" from The Niallist is also on my list. Previews over at the myspace page.
I think that's it. I might also buy The Village Orchestra 12" with the 2562 remix but need to properly check that out. Or maybe I'll just listen to some Ministry all weekend.
I'll be checking all these out this weekend. I'll write some more interesting things soon - honest.
