Other things: The Coalition can fuck off. The Love Triangle are an excellent band. Politicized youth finally, although people just out for a rumble can fuck off. Lots of UK bands set to release LPs next year. SID set to up the release schedule again..two fold. Yuck need to be stopped. All music TV is a fucking joke. Please stop using found photography for artwork. Green Door Store heralds a new era for Brighton's music scene. Music industry needs to hurry up and die. Andy Auld gets buff.

Fucking awesome list! Will probably have a few of these listed myself.

Though however much I'd like to have Home Blitz - Two Steps on my own list as well it was released in 2009
