(a quick and rather perfunctory round-up, before all the end of year/end of decade palaver gets underway)

More TV themes and underscores that haunted the child-mind of Jonathan Benton-Hughes.

3 discs of doings by Shut Up and Dance the label.

Ace Aussie postpunk, shading into New Wave but none the worse for it.

Making effective use of Viv's soft small voice especially on "I Don't Believe/In Love".

The most welcome (and unexpected) reactivation of the year. Get it here.

Like London Zoo turned inside out. Lowdown from Kevin and Roger here.

Picking up where these guys left off. Halcyon and on and on...
