Incredible.

I prefer the early prototype from 1995. The Odd Box spray suit:

So yeah, Volume 3 of the 100 Club Series is rumbling into the rearview mirror.

So here's a brief low down on the 5 bands that will be featured:

The already mentioned Year Of Birds. It's a 9 song 7". From Middlesborough. They are a prolific bunch of noiseniks. http://yearofbirds.bandcamp.com/ last seen around these parts on the Crackle! Fuzz! Pop! singles club in 2013. Comparison to Bogshed, The Fall and Stump have been garnered thus far.

Heathers from L.A. are about to blow peoples minds as they take on a whistle-stop tour of the UK culminating with an appearance at the ODD BOX weekender. New single 'Fear' is picking up a lot of notice at the moment. http://hhheathers.bandcamp.com/ Heathers are raw jangle pop - "punk’s energy meeting the broken-hearted crusade of 60s pop. It’s loud and it’s bright and it’s irresistible" so say Did Not Chart

Chorusgirl bring big chiming pop songs to the party. Dirty surf tones. Recently awarded 'Song Of The Day' on Collapsed Board for the instant classic 'Oh, To Be A Defector'. https://soundcloud.com/chorusgirl take a listen for yourself. Fall in love. Fall hard.

The Manhattan Love Suicides are about to play their first show for 5 years. They have a brand new album recorded. They will also be recording new songs for the 100 Club Series. Fuzzy feedback 60s infused pop. To die for.

The last hit on the third volume of the 100 Club Series is Sweet Benfica. This lo-fi slacker duo are from Wales can be folky or fucked-up and noisy as their want takes them. Diverse comparisons reflect this approach (Daniel Johnston, The Cramps and Richard Hell!). The fact that they're from my old hometown only adds to their mystery for me. How can something this good be from where I am from?

It's the Weekender this weekend.

Might I see some of you there?

Got a wee write-up in Timeout this week, too.

Some of you might be interested in this one:

SQRL 40/BOX 026 - THE MANHATTAN LOVE SUICIDES - MORE HEAT ! MORE PANIC ! - LIMITED EDITION RED VINYL VERSION

The Manhattan Love Suicides burnt bright between 2006 and 2009. Taking their ferocious sonic assault all over the UK and further afield to New York (The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart formed to support them at a Loft Party in Brooklyn) and SXSW in the USA (twice). They released one full rough and raw sounding studio LP, a clutch of 7" singles and EPs, plus a bumper 27 track compilation CD in their 4(ish) years together.

In 2009, the band came to an unexpected halt. Darren and Caroline regrouping as The Blanche Hudson Weekend, while Adam John Miller returned with T.O.Y.S and former side projects The Wednesday Club and The Medusa Snare. That, so we thought, was that for The Manhattan Love Suicides.

At the tail end of 2013, a new song appeared completely out of the blue on YouTube - ‘(Never Stop) Hating You’. A rough mix, and unmastered, but a taste of what was to come. The band were back ! They’ve since gone on to play a handful of ‘comeback’ shows, including the Odd Box Weekender, Indietracks and the Nottingham Pop All Dayer in 2014. More shows are coming in 2015.

The band have teamed up with Odd Box and Squirrel Records to release their second full length LP, ‘More Heat! More Panic!’ which once again shows there are none better at delivering 3 minute buzzsaw guitar attacks. This record also showcases a band comfortable in trying new things and tempering the noise with a tender side. But noise fans can rest assured that the band haven’t forgotten about their fuzz pedals. This album delivers all the noise and fury you’d expect. It also delivers a few things that might just surprise you.

Pre-order here: https://oddboxrecords.bandcamp.com/albu ... more-panic
