Eclectic Mainline 16th May 2012

I’m really rather excited by the imminence of a new album by Liars.  They’re amazing live, so you should go and see them if you get chance this year.  Here’s the new single, as played in tonight’s show:


If you’re in Leeds tomorrow night, you should get yourself along to Gary Stewart’s new EP launch at the Brudenel Social Club.  Here’s ‘Blue’ the song I played tonight:
