Each week we present ”˜Six Of The Best’ ”“ the six tracks that are getting our feet tapping here at LTW Towers”¦ They can be brand new, they can be old ”“ either way they are vying for space on the stereo!!

X-Ray Spex ”˜Oh Bondage, Up Yours’ – On Thursday 12th May, Poly Styrene was laid to rest. No further introductions are required.

Mutants Unite ”˜Fell In Love’ ”“ Strange goings on in Chicago right now, somebody decided to blend back to the floor punk rock with Devo! Hear more of their sonic meddling on ”˜Hotlips Messiah’ the Mutants Unite first self produced album.

Adam & The Ants ”˜Kings Of The Wild Frontier’ ”“ Had to be really! On the eve of his first tour for many years”¦ See you there.

Orbital ”˜Doctor?’ ”“ In light of the LTW article regarding Daphne Oram and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, could there really be better version of this classic TV theme?

Fuzigish ”˜Burn The Fucking House Down’ – Fuzigish are a legendary South African band, who somehow combine punk, ska, swing & african soul. This is taken from their latest album ”˜Setlist’ (Red Ambulance) a round up of their previous 4 releases.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.

  1. you played Fell in Love, which is awesome, but you mixed up the band name and the title of the album… the band is HotLips Messiah, the album is Mutants Unite! Thanks for playing the song and promoting us!
