The Louder Than War Playlist
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!!

Playlist W/C 23rd May 2011

Adam & The Ants ”˜Whip In My Valise’ ”“ The first dates are under his belt, the doubters have been proved woefully wrong”¦ We could have picked any track from his current live set; it’s all good, but in the end settled for this one. It’s even more of a shame he isn’t going to close The Rebellion Festival on this evidence.

Buzzcocks ”˜ Orgasm Addict’ ”“ Having spent the weekend at the first Friends Of Mine Festival just south of Manchester, had to include a few of the bands who played. Hampered by a howling gale, but despite that still demonstrated how to entertain a crowd.

Goldblade ”˜Jukebox Generation’ ”“ Having just returned from a US tour the LTW boss and co. played Friends Of Mine on the Friday night. Am hearing rumours of a new album on the way”¦

The Longcut ”˜Open Hearts’ ”“ Manchester experimentalists; this was the title track from their 2009 album released by Deltasonic. Look out for a forthcoming LTW interview

The Wedding Present ”˜ Brassneck’ ”“ Who’s idea was it to put The Weddo’s and Buzzcocks on at the same time at FOM Fest; fool!! Interesting acoustic version of this classic first broadcast live on a NY radio station.

Air Cav ”˜Embers’ ”“ Played the tiny ”˜Lake Bar’ at FOM Fest on Saturday afternoon. ”˜Embers’ was released as a single in 2008 via Surbia Records. Look out for a forthcoming LTW interview.

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.

If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
