Music

...and the Native Hipsters

One of the most original bands ever to come out of post-punk era in the UK (itself one of the more original eras). If you've heard "There goes Concorde again" then you'll love this. If you haven't, then this is a tough one to describe.

If you click on the image to the left, then you can visit for a (over-long) review by yours truly, as well as reviews by Amazon (and maybe others). More reviews are available on the band's web site www.nativehipsters.co.uk

You can, of course, buy the CD from Amazon, but I'd like to recommend that instead you do the band a favour and buy direct from their website at www.nativehipsters.co.uk. The CD is cheaper there, and they don't have to pay Amazon a cut.

You should visit their web site in any case, as it contains interesting histories of the band, pictures and offers of other Hipsters merchandise. Since this stuff has been rarer than hen's teeth until now, this new bout of activity is to be fully supported. Long may it last!



The Associates

The superb 80's pop band. Wonderful music, sadly underrated, sadly missed. There's a great fan site at www.billymackenzie.com, and an active mailing list at www.yahoogroups.com
