it feels that the music may have taken over slightly lately, but we won’t forget that tapes is equal parts art and music so it’s about bloody time we told you who the lovely artists are that we’re showcasing in tapes 1, we’re lucky enough to have…

alex curtis (http://www.thr33designs.blogspot.com/)
cameron steward (http://www.twoducksdisco.co.uk/)
elle teague (http://elleteague.blogspot.com/)
and shuffling in at the back, filling a gap, ash mann (http://ashmannblogs.wordpress.com)
and they are doing a piece in relation/inspired by/etc the following music bods:
kristyna : ash mann
alex : jose vanders
cameron : the old romantic killer band
elle : killing fields of ontario
ash : sam isaac
it’ll be awesome, the stuff that has started to be produce is of a brilliant standard, sign up (www.tapes-online.co.uk) to receive the zine first!
we’ve stuck up a few of the things we’ve recorded for tapes 1 on our lovely myspace – www.myspace.com/tapesonline go. listen.
each band/artist recorded 2 tracks so these songs may or may not be the one that is featured in the podcast, we haven’t decided yet.

we spent most of the weekend eating pie and sausage rolls, drinking tea and recording lovely people for tapes 1. it should be available for April 1 (no joke).
for those of you that haven’t yet, go and sign up to be kept uptodate with everything and anything here http://www.tapes-online.co.uk
many, many, many thanks to everyone who gave their time over the weekend, it was awesome!
due to various logistical awfulnesses we’re not going to be able to feature Jason Steel this month, however in his rather large shoes we hope to put the brilliant Josie Vanders http://www.myspace.com/vandersmusic who is ACE plus it means that tapes 1 will be less of a full-on man-fest

So joyful and beautiful, in shedloads, at the same time. A proper evolution for a band that were in danger of becoming stuck in a rut. And for perhaps the first time it sounded like music made by people, not some ethereal ‘other’ beings. It was honest and to the point in a way they seemed to have deliberately avoided in the past. The best album of 2008 in my opinion.
in a similar, joyful, icelandic vein:
múm – go, go smear the poison ivy
