Moshi Moshi Singles Club Volume 2
Is there a music burial ground in Hoxton that was once cursed by the participants in Band Aid?
It’s one of the few explanations for this trend-painful compilation from that there London. But let’s stay positive and try our best to ignore the dreadful 1980s throwbacks on show here; Samuel & The Dragon shine with a wonderful Portishead / J Richman / E Smith car-crash, James Yuill pulls something from somewhere and The Drums show how much fun can be had from pumping Gerry and the Pacemakers with helium.
As for the rest, it’s exhumed Amazulu (Still Flyin’, The Cocknbullkid), Talking Heads (Kindness) or Ultravox (Mirrors). Dizzee Rascal’s younger brother puts in an appearance (Bless Beats), Florence Welch leaves the Magic Roundabout with Summer Camp in an attempt to insert Lily Allen up something and there’s an outbreak of a genetically-engineered McFly virus (Signals). You don’t deserve rock n’ roll.
