Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies – A Little Late he Staggered Through the Door and Into her Eyes
A lot of clever words have been written about ymss, most of them on the front of their new cd, which is labelled “Hurrah! Another year, surely this one will be better than the last; the inexorable march of progress will lead us all to happiness”.
They are the most unpredictable bastards on the planet. Listening to them is like a lucky dip at a school fete, except with tarantulas and electric eels alongside the usual toy cars and chocolate bars. Mogwai-esque serenity draws you in, relaxes, soothes and virtually massages, and then some fucker puts on ‘Ace of Spades’ by Motorhead - painfully refreshing and dry, like a big poo when you’re really dehydrated, or snorting a line of Gordon’s.

The Sellout Flaw – Mighty More Fun Dedicators
Ormskirk/burscough superstar cider drinkers The ‘Flaw have a bit of a reputation in my old hometown for being shit. They are highly misunderstood, and perhaps a little out of their time. Being as punk as good charlotte is considered a great thing, being as punk as billy bragg in sid vicious clothes with stupid pointless self-obsessed Ramones lyrics is not a good thing; in the eyes of the ruling class, 16 year old girls. Personally I think they rock some seriously hard greatness. Treading the line between blatent sex pistols wanabees and don’t-give-a-fuck teenagers with more cool than is generally allowed.
