A new regualr feature on everton-mad as James Love, the guru of ger-oove, lists ten records that you must beg, steal or borrow...or at least download!The nights are already drawing in and everyone's thoughts are turning away from balmy summer nights and onto the 2006/07 season that seems to be taking an age to get here.
But here's 10 songs that will keep you in summer spirits and should see you through 'til you need to unpack your kagoul and pack away your espadrilles.
So get your blank Maxell C90 ready to record 10 songs, new and old, that you should be listening to right now...
The Young Knives - Weekends and Bleak Days
Solu Music - Fade
Emiliana Torrini - Unemployed in Summertime
Delays - No Ending
The Lotus Eaters - The First Picture of You
Kool & the Gang - Summer Madness
Lostprophets - Last Summer
The Sundays - Summertime
Telepopmusik - Breathe
And, this month's 'under the bed' bonus track (in other words, one that you secretly like but don't admit to. You'd keep it under the bed, away from all the cool records you keep on show!)...
Bananarama - Cruel Summer
'til September pop pickers!
