Straightoutta Halifax The Orielles have released some cracking singles so far but I reckon this is the best yet. Apparently the song's about a cat that wants to...er...transform into a lady...okey dokey...you don't get that from Ed Sheeran lyrics do you eh?

If you're in any doubt about which punk band made the best collection of tunes just cop a listen to Singles Going Steady, released a mere two years into Buzzcock's career. I was lucky enough to see the band a few years back and they were every bit as good 30 odd years on. RIP Pete.

I picked up two copies of Morphine's Cure for Pain album over the weekend...and promptly put them back on the shelf again as I'd only vaguely heard of the band and didn't want to waste 66p. Oh foolish Baron. It turns out that Morphine are/were something of a hidden jazzy, bluesy, alt rock gem. Returning to the charity shop in question both CDs were, of course, gone so I've just spunked almost £9 on a copy from eBay (clearly I'm not the only one who's a recent convert). Anyway, have a listen. It might not be your bag but if it is I suspect you'll get as addicted as me...
PS: Sadly Morphine is no more as lead singer Mark Sandman died of a heart attack in stage way back in 1999. He was just 46.
PPS: Here's another one. How good is this?!
