Marion - Violent Men
The first single (on Rough Trade I think) from another band cursed by the moniker "new Smiths", they even supported Morrissey at one point. Your basic meat and potatoes 90's indie band fronted by a pair of cheekbones and a nice haircut.
Younger Younger 28's - Next Big Thing
They could have been the next Human League, instead they are doomed to be confused with Vanilla (if the latter are unknown to you then please, enjoy your youth, do not seek them out, only horror that way lies) by a generation who are now all around 28 themselves. YY28 weren't half bad really, I just never need to hear We're Going Out ever again.
Bis - Action and Drama
We're here for the Les Rhythmes Digitales remix of Eurodisco. I can't honestly remember how the Scissorkicks mix goes, Action and Drama.....well, it's got a Wham reference. I *think* that's a good thing.
Normal service of rare obscurist nonsense to resume. Possibly.
