This Mondays Show:

It was a pubic horrorday yesterday and as such I was too lazy to update this:) LOTS of new tracks, some old as is my wont.... thanks Izabella......to the bloke who phoned last night for a dedication, sorry i wasn't able to help you out:(
First Hour

Echo and the Bunnymen – In Bluer Skies
The final track on the amazing Porcupine album, moody, atmospheric... shows why the Bunnymen were one of the reasons it was great to be alive in the 80's
Tokyo Police Club – In a Cave
This is the first offering from their brilliant Debut full length album "Elephant Shell"
Cocteau Twins – Peppermint Pig
This was the first time I ever heard the otherworldly voice of Elizabeth Frasier, I was hooked. This track is brilliant, it's from one of my most prized possessions, the 12" single, The Twins get dancey (kinda)
The Young Punx – You’ve Got To… (Norman Cook Mix)
This remix is the cutest remix of any track I have heard in a long time, Drum and Bass at its finest (Norman Cooke style)
Son of Dave – Old Times Were Good Times
A beat-box and a harmonica never sounded so good...
Prototypes – Un Coup De Langue
Only the French could come up with an electro 80's style slice of coolness like this, wicked. From the awesome album Synthetique
Pony Pony Run Run – Boy/Girl Surrender (Summer Edit)
French powerpop brilliance
Goose – British Mode (Prepmode’s Heavy on the Kick Mix)
Awesome remix of this fantastic Belgian Indie band, the coolest riff of last year

Pop Levi – Oh God (What Can I Do?)
He used to play with Ladytron as their bassist, he is also known as Mozambique Courier. Lovely.

Mad Electro House mash-up opera stomper
The Young Punx – Rockall (Krafty Kuts Mix)
WICKED remix by the Krafty Kuts, freaking awesome
Martina Topley Bird – Carnies
The voic eon Trickeys's debut Maxinquaye. HAs been likened to a modern day Etta James, high praise indeed
Yazoo – Softly Over
Vince Clarke left Depeche Mode and started this group with Blues vocalist Alison Moyet. They only did two full albums but they are filled with amazing tracks such as Goodbye 70's, Winter Kills, Only You and this slice of 80's brilliance from the album You and Me Both. Quite why they had to be called Yaz in the states, I will never know

Damn you Greg! I had never heard that Peppermint Pig song before and it looks IMPOSSIBLE to get hold of. And to add to that, it looks like you may have got me hooked on a new band - Goose.
You're a bad influence Greg Tucker.

Excellent show.
