The Marshall Suite is a concept album of sorts split into 3 'movements'. It has some of the strongest songs that The Fall have released in years, and is really a great record. "F-'Oldin' Money" rips the music from the song 'Summertime Blues' and is a kick. "Touch Sensitive" sounds rocking and very cool, and is the first single from this record. There's a cover of The Saints song 'This Perfect Day'. "(Jung Nev's)Antidotes" is massive. The final song "On My Own" is like a Mark E Smith "Piss Factory" (the first Patti Smith single from 1974) with its intense piano and vocal.

Everything you might hope for if you are a fan of The Delgados. Really great versions of many songs they played at the show at the VFW hall in Cambridge last month.
'Telema' is from their new LP (The Amatuer View), but the other two songs are unique to this 10". To Rococo Rot are Ronald and Robert Lippok (who named the band after an art exhibition they had in their hometown Berlin), and bassist Stephan Schneider (who recently left Kreidler to concentrate full time on this band). Ronald Lippok still plays in Tarwater as well.
New single on a label from Koln Germany. The Bobbyteens themselves are from Southcity California. They've put out several singles this year. Tina and Danille were in The Trashwomen. Tina was in The Brentwoods. Russel was in The Phanton Surfers and The Mummies. Two exclusive tracks.
Really just one guy (Eric Copeland) who moved to NYC from Maine. The Ninjas produce noisy guitar racket with a very poppy edge. This is as clangy and lively as their previous 12" on Blackbean. 2 exclusive tracks.
