Take It Personal (Covers) 2


A 1988 UK indie anthem by likely Liverpool band The LA's. Future Dad-rock royalty and experts of the dead-pan Northern English interview.

Sixpence None The Richer.

A match made in heaven, just as long as your idea of heaven is a 90's romantic comedy crossed with a sanitary pad advert. Thanks very much SNTR. No wonder people say romance is dead...

Get Down On Bleeding Knees

Queensland's Bleeding Knees Club lost their Virginity when they released a five-track EP of that name a little while back. Not sure how they slipped by for that amount of time because they are now a firm listening favourite - and carpet-burned knees has become a way of life. The two brothers play lo-fi garage punk in the vein of Harlem and Male Bonding, citing the surf punk scene as a primary influence. There's not much more that can be said except to make sure your year doesn't end without experiencing some Knee action. Now signed with the I Oh You mob, you can download some tracks for free or purchase the entire Virginity EP from your local iTunes or some such shop of music sales.

Argh! Pop Tekkers In Helsinki

Newly signed to UK's Heavenly label (home to Saint Etienne, The Soft Pack and Edwyn Collins) is Helsinki duo Le Corps Mince De Francois. These Finnish sisters create a baggy pop funk that the label quite rightly compare to Shaun Ryder but their current single 'Gandhi' also recalls the '80s beat-driven pop of King Trigger, Kissing The Pink and Altered Images. There are also obvious nods to the late '90s electropunk scene from which they have arisen. There's an album promised next year and, for now, there are dub'd up reloves by Andrew Weatherall available for you to purchase from your nearest online record store.
