The Damned - Smash it Up Old Grey Whistle Test,

wonderful.
what I cut my punk teeth on. It's so funny to see it now, as I never knew they did it live. Or could.

DynDa - Kerna Dirimu [Official Music Video]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDAYMKw6 ... e=youtu.be

Some arguably gratuitous housey Malay pop, but a way slicker job than most local bands usually manage.

I like the kinda Ibiza vibe in the opening. Great vocals. Yes some pretty well know club-motifs in the mix too. A dozen-15 choreographed on stage at once... deffo not your average SGn disaster music video!

Wild Cub - Thunder Clatter

Just heard this the other day and thought it was quite brilliant. It's been out a while and didn't really do anything chart wise but not sure that matters anymore!

Wow, nice one. That sound is so 'time and place'. Perhaps because the overall scene* appeared, lived, and died over quite a short period of time.



* The original heart of the 'Manchester Scene'. The likes of Oasis, who later emerged from it took it in a more commercial direction, don't have that zoned out dream-like feel.

Yep. I'm 31 so slightly before my time in that I never got involved in the "madchester" scene but they were my music of choice on my walkman walking to school!
