Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

In the days before the MP3 blog, fanzines were one of the best ways to keep in touch with music being ignored by the mainstream and alternative press. Quite a few spawned other projects - from bands like Shampoo to record labels like Org. The latter was an institution in the mid-90s British indie scene, pumping out dozens of completely terrible records that sold about six copies each, seemingly kept going by nothing but passion and a punk D.I.Y spirit. The one exception to their fairly awful roster was Charlie's Angels - a proto-Pipettes produced by Nick Coler, later of Xenomania. They were an adorable mix of jangly indie and girl-group pop but sadly followed their label-mates into obscurity. Who knows? Maybe they'll get lucky and Frank will cover It's Never Gonna Happen To Me.

    Loving this! Thanks muchly! Your wish is our command!!! Adrian check out DONTSTOPTHEPOP cos its just updated its last summer update with a bucketload of Greek pop queens/divas. We havent included Anna Vissi tho as EVERYONE knows her! Instead we've gone with her usurpers, betters and rivals!

    Oh and love your article on Lambs Conduit Street. However, as we live there the place is too commercial for us as it only opens for the week and never for the locals. The place is dead on Sunday.

    A better area is Exmouth Market.

    But i do agree with regards to Starbucks. There is 1 on theobalds road at the top, one on Southampton Row, one just openned in the rather amazing Brunswick Centre and one in Exmouth Market. Too2Much!
