Pure Groove: fingers on buzzers.

Any kind of band that makes Simon Cowell angry is one that wins our love. And Glasvegas are about as far away from an industry-moulded project as it’s possible to be. An accent so thick that the label might need to re-dub it for North American markets; beautifully widescreen yet utterly melancholy melodies, and lyrical content so dripping in pathos that you might need a handkerchief to listen to it. Not the boxes than many labels would tick in their search for the next big thing – but every imprint in the land is chasing them, and no wonder, for they’re the most beautiful new band we’ve heard in ages. Supremely limited seven inch that’ll go within days… Move fast!






Ah, rrrr kid, one of our favourite bands are back. With the CDs and vinyls safely stored in Davey Jones’s locker, Pete and the Pirates sail back into Pure Groove’s waters with the arrival of their debut long player. For 1.25 pieces of eight (or £10 as it’s better known *) you can own your own copy of Little Death to treasure, one of the finest slices of tight angular indie pop you’re likely to hear this year. Featuring the singles Knots and Mr Understanding, it’ll send a shiver (me timbers) up your spine.

* - Please note that the limited vinyl edition is 1.5 pieces of eight, or £12 if you don’t have any gold.
