My first sober moment for a while...

October 11, 2005

I had intended to write small summaries of some of the tracks in last Friday's playlist mix, but completely ran out of time as I was late for an awards ceremony – about which, there is more on my Flickr – so for my sins (and my seemingly eternal hangover) I'll add them in now.

Firstly, Jeremy Warmlsley’s track After The Fact is taken from his soon-to-be-released EP '5 Interesting Lies' which is released on Transgressive on the 7th of November. Incidentally, any Londoners of a J_Wo persuasion should go to his EP launch party tomorrow night at the Camden Barfly – he's supported by Emmy The Great and Roland Shanks so it should be awesome – get there early!

I've been told I talk about Test Icicles way too much on here, so I'll keep this short: What's Michelle Like? was on the boy's first demo last September, but this is a rerecorded version which is the secret track on their new album 'For Screening Purposes Only' out 31st October.

Beauty Scars by Action Plan is the b-side to their new single 'Stendhal' out on Young and Lost Records at some point in the near future. This track has featured on a Swish Mix before, but this rerecorded version sounds a lot better and also seems to convey a lot more heart.

Now if you haven't downloaded the thing yet, do it now – you have no excuse (unless you're on a dial-up connection, or hate me).

How can you talk about test icicles too much? I'm confused. Is it cos they are gonna get famous? is this the backlash start? booo...

woh, chill out.. I don't create backlashes.

type Test Icicles (or Test-Icicles - i'm not too sure) into the searh box on your right and see how many entries there are. The original suggestion was that this should be called The Test Icicles Blog and not The Swish Blog

I don't think it's possible to talk about them too much, though I'm not sure if that's denial. When's the new playlist coming out?

If you can get ahold of the James Ford remix of the Departure's 'Lump in my Throat' it may be a fun tune to include in a future playlist if it fits in

oh Nilina, you can't say that and then not megaupload or gmail it to me... I would be very grateful.x

Okay. Will work on it. Have you heard of New Young Pony Club? I'll send over a track of theirs shortly too.

I've been in love with them since Ice Cream - fucking loved that song. I actually made friends with a girl from Hollywood on LiveJournal because we were the only two people in the world with NYPC listed as an interest!

I have The Get Go/Jerk Me on 7" but I don't have a record player. hhmm.

But you have heard it though-because it was the mp3 of 'The Get Go' I was gonna send and it's SO GOOD!

'Did You Ever Think?' was the name on an mp3 demo version of (album track) 'What's Your Damage?' which was floating around the internet about 3 months ago.

Buy the album, the new version is much better!
