Cage The Elephant
Shake You Down
new single 13 March 2011
Love this band... hoping they crack it this time, on this showing again they deserve too! Hit. Here's the PR...

Raucous Kentucky rockers, CAGE THE ELEPHANT, return to the fray with the eagerly-awaited release of their second album ‘THANK YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY’ on March 21st 2011. Produced by Jay Joyce, the album is the band’s follow up to their 2009 self-titled debut, which has now sold over 500,000 copies worldwide (and remained on the Billboard 200 Chart for 73 consecutive weeks). The album will be preceded with the release of lead single ‘Shake Me Down’ on March 13th .Described by Rolling Stone as a ‘Pixies-to-the-max jam’, the single showcases an album heavily influenced by 90’s grunge and is packed with
explosive loud-quiet-loud moments. Other stand-out tracks include ‘Aberdeen’. ‘Sell Yourself’, ‘Around my Head’’ and the beautiful ‘Flow’. Currently at #3 on the
Billboard Modern Rock chart, ‘Shake Me Down’ is on course to be the band’s third US #1. The young five-piece from Bowling Green, Kentucky, Matt Shultz (vocals), Brad Shultz (guitar), Daniel Tichenor (bass), Lincoln Parish (guitar) and Jared Champion (drums), accumulated over 80 songs worth of ideas during a 2-year period touring around the globe and living here in the UK supporting their eponymous debut!

Katy Perry & Kanye West
ET - MCH Remix
new single release date to be confirmed
Well some great stereo interplay and Katy & Kanye.. Brandy bollox better watch his Mrs... Kanye's probing... Top top track!!!

Ace Of Hz
new single 14 March 2011
One of the top indie electro bands of recent times with a top new track to go with their new chronology CD... hope this top forty's.. top track
Here's the PR.....
Ladytron releases an EP around their latest single “Ace Of Hz,” with featured remixes of the track by Tiësto, Punks Jump Up and NYCPARTYINFO. Known for creating celebrated remixes for the likes of Blondie, Nine Inch Nails, Simian Disco Club, Bloc Party, Gang Of Four and more, Ladytron procured a few of their most admired remixers to retouch their current single. Enlisting the talents of Tiësto, Punks Jump Up and newcomer NYCPARTYINFO, the EP offers three unique and classic takes on the track. Punks Jump Up (Miike Snow, Crystal Castles, Lykke Li, Kele, Robyn) fashion a DIY style, providing a hypnotic, upbeat, disco/club rendition that stays true to general vibe of the original song. Tiësto (Madonna, Kanye West, Muse, Delerium, Lady
Gaga) delivers his authentic and credible voice to create an atmospheric, yet pulsating version that mixes house, trance and techno. Relative neophytes, NYCPARTYINFO transforms the track into a distinct, soulful subject best described as ‘technorganic haunted house.’
Formed in the summer of 1998, the members of Ladytron (Daniel Hunt, Helen Marnie, Mira Aroyo, Reuben Wu), have spent the last decade fashioning albums of deliriously buzzing, whip-smart music that have kept them ahead of the curve, apart from the fads and in a league of their own. Currently, the band is hard at work on their as yet untitled fifth album—the follow-up to 2008’s Velocifero.
Ladytron will release a decade-spanning ‘Best Of’ compilation in March; ‘Ace Of Hz’ will appear on both albums.

The Tunics
Berlin / Low
release to be confirmed
When you think of all the great bands that have originated from the UK - Clash, Duran, Beatles, Stones, Libertines is poushing it a bit, although nothing of the Oasis status they aspired to - they were kind of there in the last decade... and now traditional rock bands are really struggling (even KOL's last album took a knockdown). Why?? I think there may have been a trend towards being to arty rather than straight down the middle like 'Sex On Fire'. 'Berlin' is another clever track as is 'Low'... i'm finding it hard to imagine many of the new bands have songs that could rock stadiums... unlike many of the 80bpm grime artists like Wretch 32 and Tempah man... I don't know, it's becoming more and more noticeable but hopefully if one band like The Tunics can make a big breakthrough, get one big hit song the landscape may change. hope so. Here's the PR...

"Fiery, urgent tunes with a brutal honesty and earnestness..." NME
“Fully expect The Tunics to outsell everyone” – Guardian band Of The Day
"Listen to the music. Invade the stage. And go love The Tunics as much as we do..." BBC
From the suburbs of Croydon to the industrial bloc of former East Berlin, The Tunics have been quietly making a name for themselves as well as an album. The Tunics are Joe Costello (vocals/guitar), Scott Shepherd (bass), James Booth (keyboards) and Simon Hargreaves (drums). With a following that sees them packing German tours and gigs from Madrid to St. Petersburg, and debuting high into the German college charts with their first single ‘Low’, it only seems fitting to bring these boys back to the place where they began.
Being your typical British teenager, Joe Costello, grew up listening to The Libertines and decided to make his dream of “doing what The Libertines do” become a reality. At 16 years of age, and with his best mates in tow, Joe formed The Tunics in 2006 and started gigging all over their London town. Their first tentative release was a single, ‘Cost of Living’, back in 2008 and to their surprise the notoriously hard-to-please press were pleased. The Tunics found themselves in the maelstrom that is known to the more cynical amongst us as “the hot new band for the next five minutes” syndrome. It was a whirlpool of label offers and TheTunics felt they were being rinsed harder than a hot wash set to 90. On spin.
Wisely, the boys opted to get outta this place and recognised that BMG could offer them more than just a record deal. They found themselves, not unlike another fab’ young foursome, on a plane to Germany and that is where their story really starts. Their sound is a mix of influences; The Libertines, Cast and Oasis. The album is a melody-heavy, heart-on-the-sleeve affair, reminiscent of the greats from the Britpop era, when guitar bands were ruling the charts. “I’ve got a lot of confidence in the songs that we’re writing and the album that we have,” says frontman Joe. “Not to be too overblown about the whole thing but we’re ready for a proper f**king guitar band with actual songs. I think that’s what the world needs.”
The album opens with the dance-like-you’re-a-teenager-again track entitled ‘Berlin’ - an ode to the city of their rebirth. ‘Help Is On It’s Way’ is next up. Bass heavy, it drives the song forward like speeding traffic, barrelling up the westway. Third up ‘I’m Broke You’re Bored’ will be the second single release from the album: A poignant sentiment with the gently spiralling guitar and keyboards of Costello and Booth providing the soundtrack to it. ‘Stolen Hearts’ is the ballad of
the album and a stand-out track complete with slide guitars that shine a western infused sunset light on the song. Next up is ‘Radio’, a beautiful string-laden piece of music that comes with one of the band’s sharpest-tongued lyrics. “I think the song is about everything on the radio being rubbish basically and just saying ‘I can’t bear this any longer, I need an outlet for myself.” Debut single ‘Low’ has a killer hook with layers of piano and guitar sounds. A soft interlude marks the half way point of the album and leads into the second half of the record: ‘Slaves Ride On These Waves’ is again haunted by a western air. The
gently plucked guitar and folky balladry places it firmly in the desert, a lost Morricone. ‘You Already Knew’ picks up the tempo and from here on in the album is hitting the backbeat hard. ‘Shadows’ is a jaunty and upbeat psychedelic groover with a political stab. ‘Wit and Acid Tongue’, largely instrumental skiffles by with an undeniable and sometimes abstract sixties’ vibe. ‘A Moment of Clarity’ is the penultimate track on Dabblers Handbook and is a moment in time, an expansive breath and a gently rocking precursor to album closer ‘Dear God’, an epic and beautifully composed prayer of a track. The anthemic strings wrap the closing number into a gift of a finale 2011 is the year the guitar bands come back fighting to reclaim the land the synths stole momentarily. And The Tunics ‘Dabblers Handbook’ will be a heavy weight contender.

Twin Atlantic
Edit Me
release to be confirmed
Top new band with a great new track - hope it sees the light of day and the top forty soon... Here's the PR

Never a band to rest on their laurels, hotly-tipped Glasgow natives Twin Atlantic hit the ground running this year with their first headline tour & new single of 2011. ‘Edit Me’ had its first spin on The Rock Show on BBC Radio 1 to huge fan response. Twin Atlantic immediately began trending on Twitter & the Internet was a flurry of excitement that there is new music hitting the streets. ‘Edit Me’ will be available for download on February 14th & will include an exclusive B-Side of ‘Running From Money’. The band recently finished recording their highly anticipated debut album, ‘Free’ at Red Bull Studio in Santa Monica with über producer Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies).

Wretch 32 & Example
new single 18 April 2011
Top move to sound like 'Fools Gold'... v clever... A quite superb follow-up, people love the sex in it... top five... maybe a Tinie-a-like and the first of three number ones. And young Jermaine is at the Great Hall, Cardiff Uni on 10 March 2011. Top-oh. Here's the PR...

25 year-old Jermaine Scott, aka Wretch 32 has had an incredible start to the year. After being earmarked by the BBC as a one to watch for their Sound of 2011 list, along with being hotly tipped by NME, MTV and HMV, as a rising music star he has gone on to achieve a Top 5 debut smash with his first commercial single release,‘Traktor’, and was confirmed as the main support on Example’s forthcoming nationwide Spring tour, (see dates below).
Wretch 32 is the UK rapper’s rapper. ‘The Metaphor Man’ – as Devlin likes to call him – he has a way with words that has earned him a reputation as the best lyricist on the scene with everyone from Tinie Tempahthrough to Professor Green singing his praises. Before signing a record deal, Wretch 32 was already well known on the underground. Not only did he sell over 15,000 copies of his mixtapes in and around Tottenham where he grew up on the Tiverton estate and collaborate with the likes of Chipmunk, Mike Skinner and Wiley (to name a few), but he also received awards acknowledging his dazzling lyricism from BBC 1Xtra, Touch Magazine and the Official Mixtape Awards. In addition to signing to Levels Recordings/Ministry of Sound last year also saw Wretch 32supporting Professor Green, Tinie Tempah and Chipmunk on tour and appearing live at major festivals including Glastonbury and BBC Weekender.
Now, following on from the resounding commercial success of his first single release proper, ‘Traktor’,Wretch 32 is gearing up to release ‘Unorthodox’, the second track from his forthcoming album, while also embarking on Example’s forthcoming full nationwide tour. Featuring Example and sampling the Stone Roses classic ‘Fools Gold’, the infectious sounding ‘Unorthodox’ is the perfect follow up to ‘Traktor’. An up tempo track featuring witty wordplay, innovative beats and a killer hook for a chorus, ‘Unorthodox’ will sit as comfortably on mainstream radio airwaves as it will on the grimiest of dance floors.
‘Unorthodox’ featuring Example, will be released by Levels Recordings/ Ministry of Sound on 18thApril 2010. Wretch 32 will be supporting Example on his UK tour throughout February and March 2011:
07/03/11 - Assembly Rooms, Leamington Spa
08/03/11 - O2 Academy, Leicester
10/03/11 - University Great Hall, Cardiff
11/03/11 - Academy, Manchester
12/03/11- Academy, Manchester
14/03/11 - Corn Exchange, Cambridge
15/03/11 - Westlands, Yeovil
16/03/11 - Guildhall, Southampton
17/03/11 - Dome, Brighton

Yes Says Gruff
Gruff Rhys Super Furry Animal...

Keep Wales Radical, Yes Please!
Please sit comfortably in my virtual Cardiff Taxi, and if you don’t mind, I’d like to share a thought or two : I’m going to sing you a very specific song if you like.
Here we go…
If you live in Wales, there’s a referendum on March the 3rd that is hugely important if you believe in maintaining social equality, the Health Service, free student tuition, the environment (including forestry), sympathetic Welsh Language policy, progressive education policy, free transport for the elderly, subsidised prescriptions and More!
A successful ‘Yes’ vote will mean the Welsh Assembly can pass legislation in all these fields (for a list of all fields click here). Under the current system the Westminster government can veto the Welsh Assembly government on these matters. Defence and international affairs and major infrastructure are still controlled by Westminster and this will continue to be the case.
As we all know the current government in Westminster is run by an elitist coalition of millionaires who have already decided to axe hundreds of Welsh jobs (starting at Newport Passport Office), imposed severe cuts on Welsh Language broadcasting and have cut public spending in Wales by a bigger margin than in any other UK region.
Since the founding of The Welsh Assembly government through the successful referendum of 1997, people living in Wales have consistently voted for progressive left-leaning governments and coalitions that meet their particular needs.
It’s been a huge success given the limited power it actually wields : Things get done, and political drama, by and large, is limited.
Even the most conservative politicians in The Welsh Assembly are not ( to the same degree) subject to the divisive rhetoric of the right-wing media in London which damages and distorts sensible discourse in Westminster.
Wales has a history of voting for brave, radical and compassionate politicians – from Kier Hardy to Aneurin Bevan and Gwynfor Evans ; and let’s not forget that at the height of Thatcherism and the cold war, the people of Rhondda had an elected Communist Party politician, Annie Powell, as Mayor.
There is a pretty obvious reason for this radical tradition : We have very distinct needs here.
Some of the most economically deprived areas of the UK and EU are here in Wales : It is essential that we maintain a strong Welfare state and social services to maintain the health of the people, to boost the economy in an environmentally sustainable way and to maintain equality in education so that we can build for the future.
Let’s keep Cameron’s influence to a minimum in Wales ;we’re still trying to heal the wounds that the last conservative government inflicted on us.
Please vote ‘Yes’ on March the 3rd.
This is not a sovereignty issue. We are firmly entrenched and protected by our brothers and sisters in the EU, UK, UN, UEFA and whichever other international
organisation with an ‘U’ in it you care to mention.
This is simply local democracy at work.
Local people always understand their own needs the best. Most European countries have regional governments with far more powers than those which Wales will gain in this referendum.
Just as David Cameron is a legitimate democratic representative in his constituency, I believe he is completely out of touch with the tough social needs of people in Wales.
Please vote ‘Yes’ on March 3rd.
A ‘No’ vote will maintain The Conservative coalition’s veto on Welsh social matters. Why leave it to chance who controls power in the Westminster parliament and the feudal, undemocratic elitist disgrace of the House of Lords?
Is it sensible, in any way, to keep the status quo?
Why not trust in proportionally-voted local democracy?
Please tell your friends and family to turn up and vote on March the 3rd.
This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity and to ignore it could have severe social consequences.
We don’t even have to take to the streets like our north-African friends – it’s a simple trip to the polling station.
It’s like X factor, but we all win. It could be such a great result!
This is not retro rhetoric, it’s very relevant.
Keep Wales Radical. Keep the super-rich elite from decision-making on social issues.
Let’s go to the chorus again:
Please vote ‘Yes’ on March 3rd.
Thanks for reading, and riding in my cab of opinion.
Yours Sincerely,
Gruff Rhys

No Says UK
We weren't going to comment... but this democratic debate is so one sided it's become near impossible to feel comfortable expressing an opposing view. The vote is not just about punching the Tories it's about losing our country -
The United Kingdom...
and it's nearly too late already...

Thursday 3 March 2011 - the greatest day for Wales since 1401 - or will it pre-cipate the greatest disaster to befall us.
It looks ominous for the United Kingdom, the European Union will have it's way as another big chunk of the UK is undermined... it looks likely Wales will vote YES
for more powers on Thursday. Like a chicken wandering into an oven.
So what can we expect... more laws enacted quicker... more laws... more laws.... more laws to be broken unwittingly.
So desperate are some to dissolve our shared experience of our United Kingdom that we have learned of one Labour MP adding to his YES Facebook group people who are unaware they have been added and are of the opposite view... is this common practice? Anything's possible with Facebook, it's not the home of moral fortitude.
Some may be bamboozled by info/lack of info and opinion polls which seem used to steer us... why say that - because of the elimination of the don't knows - those who are not bothered and are content with the here and now so much so they're not going to enter the process... nearly always around 40%... sometimes 70%... a large number who get what the majority of voters decide they should - yes they have only themselves to blame - but it would be stupidity to pretend they dont exist. Maybe they're trapped in the wall of mirrors that's presented to us with all knowing, celebrities, commentators and newshounds who seldom reveal their real political convictions.
The 'blame anyone but me's.
We're told we will have more power... it doesn't take one long to conclude that is absolutely one thing we will not have.
Zero Tolerance policies on parking offences and the like are everywhere... while Usk's Open Prison frequently allows criminals to escape against any notion of common sense or the common good. The will of the sensible majority ignored repeatedly, and let's not forget the poor folk and their children who live near to that establishment - they are in the front of this attack on their very being.
No there'll be no more power for Joe Public like you and me, don't deceive yourself.
Power will be destined for the Labour and Communist battallions lining up to attack the current centre of Tory power at Westminster
So many have said to me they don't know what this referendum is about...
Well the unthinkable is that it must be about Labour using the Welsh Language Party to further their aim of destroying the United Kingdom and uniting with the Communists of Europe.
It's about more and more key managerial and political people in Wales being recruited because they fit a certain left wing view and political ideology rather than them being any good at the job.
If you think that would be a good thing vote Yes... if this notion makes you feel sick in the slightest you should probably vote No.
No better example can be found to demonstrate the left wings frankly mind-boggling capacity for deceit than with the Lockerbie bomber... it was the Scottish government's fault they bleat.... then with a million dead in Iraq... it was Saddam's fault they bleat...
the UK is bankrupt... it was the Bankers fault they bleat
No it was not... the Labour Party set about bankrupting this country so we would be at the financial mercy of Europe... look at Ireland they took the bribe also.
Let's count up the parties on the UK loving right... In the Blue Corner.... just one we're told is acceptable.. the Tories... and even then there's been Facebook groups set up calling for personal assaults on CamMan... then there's UKIP ... and err well I'm struggling... oh yeah the million of our forty million voting population who voted for the British National Party... know anyone who's 'come out'?... must surely be some somewhere...
On the Left... In the Red Corner... Labour, The Scots Nationalists, The Welsh Nationalists, The Irish Nationalists, The Greens, The Liberals... The Raving Loonies oh yeh and the Communists...
The Communists were responsible for Ed Milliband becoming Labour Leader and fraudulently obtaining half a million votes at the European Election by deceitfully calling themselves the No2EU party...
You'd have a tough job making this stuff up
As a previously lifelong socialist UK citizen and after thirteen years of Labour I feel utterly betrayed.
We have far less input into democracy than we did in 1997 (witness Cardiff Schools closure plans) and we pay far more for it.
This election is about building a power base to surround the Tories and we in Wales should be very wary of people who say they have all our best interests at heart... so often they are the same people who've moaned about not getting a fair deal from Westminster while wasting money on unnecessary road-humps and piddly little islands on roads... it's an encroaching debilitating psychological warfare on us... we must submit to losing Cardiff's lovely city centre.. and the congestion... well narrowing roads causes congestion doesn't it... so let's charge for congestion like Red Ken did in the London Socialist State. That's the result of 13 years of democracy Stalinist Labour style (Jack Straw - a self confessed Stalinist - proud of it - privately - long time til he'll come out publicly I suspect)... ask Peter Law's family..
Labour MP the late Peter Law ruthlessly deselected from his Blaenau Gwent constituency after a lifetime of service to his community.
These types who perpetrated that act pretend they'll listen to you, me, hell everyone, in reality they will become the elected dictators we have already witnessed... did Tony Bliar have some instruction on these matters from Col Gadaffi while providing the tyrant with our British SAS and our British Police... it's a possibility isn't it.. I mean what would they have talked about.. the weather
As for the Left's new champion Ed Milliband - the saboteur of his brother David Millibands long-time Labour Leadership bid, what kind of person could do that... I was always taught to be wary of people who'd sell their own Grand-mother... in this case someone for whom loyalty means nothing - who'd trample on the will of most Labour supporters without hesitating - it gives us a fair idea of what he'd do to us given the chance. God forbid.
Neither deserves our support anyway... they surely harbour secret desires to transfer the UK into European subservience without being honest with us and this vote on devolving more power from Westminster to Wales is part of that plan.
For each were jointly responsible for the law aimed at parents which would require parents to be registered child-minders or become criminals if they helped look after the children of friends.
The Tories have scrapped that fascist law in England... it slowly dawns on you our Welsh situation leaves us far more vulnerable to a sinister law like this than the English, soon we may look with envy at our 50 million brothers and sisters across Offa's Dyke perhaps as some in the Irish Republic do now.
We must be mad if we think the rehabilitated Peter Hain is sincere - he was positively identified on bank robbery charges in 1975 - we're not supposed to know that's the type of person he is are we?
In Wales we have NHS Direct to care for us - what a disaster. Untrained 16 year olds manning the Pig Flu advice-lines - this useless body - acts as a distraction a curtain behind which the ongoing robbery from the NHS of our money paid to protect it for items most would not support. NHS Direct has been scrapped in the UK (ie England) but not in Wales... we have to live with the pretence that this thing works. My dentist has asked his name to be removed from their NHS Dentists List on so many occasions he has now given up.. meanwhile NHS Direct keep pumping out inaccurate information... Why? To disguise the disastrous running of the NHS by Labour over the last thirteen years - they had our money in taxes to spend on the NHS and squandered it on road humps
and other idealogical Socialist initiatives... political correctness, social justice... both are non-sensical I am afraid, yes afraid and these notions have not and will not achieve what we're told they will.

They are devices designed to wrest power from one group of politicians to another and we will be in the cross-fire until we're blitzed off the fence one way or another.
