New Jamz on Thursday

It's getting cold and blustery up here at MA towers, so even more reason to stay in and dig deep....

Thee Oh See's sneakily released a new album which i knew nothing about until browsing the old Pitchfork. This particular track is by far and away the most one-dimensionally thrilling song i've heard all year (check the solos!). Come back to Manchester PLEEASE...
