I haven’t got enough time to write loads about everything I get told about, but I do try and give as much stuff as I can a mention. So in this spirit, here’s a quick blog post about a few things that have dropped into the BMB inbox recently.

First up, tomorrow night is the next Vice Launch Party. No Problems are playing and ex-Pipette Monster Bobby is DJing. The facebook event with more info is here.

Sticking on a rock theme, Kid Capola have also put out a single for their new single Wolf & Cub:

And Peggy Sue have a video for Fools Rush In, from their new long player Peggy Sue play the Songs of Scorpio Rising which is coming out next month:

Finally, the video to Amongst The Pigeons’ latest single Jaffa Clown Dog, which got released yesterday. I’m off to see them, as well as BitBin, who’s just signed to Skint offshoot Under Fives tonight, so expect another blog post on them soon!
