Nuggets 212 – Louder

Nuggets 212 - Louder

Louder than what you may ask. Well, louder than most recent mixes.  th’ faith healers (more here) feature from a bruising Peel session released in 2005 but probably first aired on 24/11/1991. Don’t you love that 90’s sound?

Peel session

Toy are a young band from England (London?) with krautrock sensibilities (and thin legs).


If you can wait till 10 September you can buy their album.

The TV Torso album is great, and you can get it here paying whatever you think they deserve…

Ditto the fab Black Tambourines

Nuggets 193 – Lofi and thrashy + Laneways

Laneways was hot and crowded, a bad place to find a beer in a hurry. Girls, Yuck  and the Horrors were worth the wait. A friend said that that the line-up was a bit indie wimpy and I agree. More thrash next time please. How about Royal Headache and Total Control from Australia, the Screaming Females,  Milk Music and The Men  from the USA, the UK’s Black Tambourines and Christchurch’s gift from the rock gods, the T54’s? If you need some alt wimpy, give us TV Girl.

PS, run do not walk to your PC and download this Black Tambourines EP. It’s free. I almost took out some other tracks to make way for more of their excellent thrash. It’s that good.

The picture is of course from UFO. I can’t work out which SHADOW operative this was, but she’s not the one that later married Michael Caine.

Meanwhile, back at Laneways, here are The Horrors…
