JUSTICE return!

2010 is shaping up to be a good year for comebacks. Vampire Weekend...The Strokes....and now Justice.

It's certainly better than some of the mixes they've put their name to recently, and the change in pace is welcome midway through.

Good to have them back - be interesting to see where they go from here.

Three reasons to be cheerful

Uprocker Steve reckons the Justice track is a fake....who knows?

What I do know is that the above poster by Steve is perhaps our best yet. We're looking at ways to get some of these printed on nice paper and made for sale. Get in touch if you'd like to reserve one.

I've been listening to two tracks over and over this week. One old, one new(ish).

First, the new. Summer Camp give hope that the winter won't last forever. They have a mysterious presence, a nice blog of old photos (which somehow doesn't match the authentic, heartfelt nature of Lettie's collection) and a couple of stand out tracks.

Ghost Train is the killer - with touches of Pony Up! and even the Teenagers.

I've been listening to this a lot this week..but not as much as Pinball by Brian Protheroe.

I know little about him, apart from the track made it to the top 30 in the 70s and that he may have been in Superman 2, but this song is amazing. I love everything about it.
