Tunelord

Psycho! Psycho! Psycho! Sorry to interrupt your enjoyment of Mr Tanbad's incredible beats (below), but today is another one of those Tubelord days.

If you're an NME reader then you may well have already noticed that the Kingston trio have picked themselves up a lovely, lovely live review from last Monday's BSM St Patrick's Day party at The Social in London. It includes the phrases "With their jerky dance-punk rhythms smoothed out into melodic choruses (and aided by a vocal crowd) the trio pose the best kind of dilemma – should we try and dance or concentrate on learning the words?" and "we should celebrate daily that BSM exists to continually discover such thrilling bands."

I very much like the idea of the latter. Feel free to take this matter into your own hands, people.

In other press news, 'Night Of The Pencils' is featured on the latest episode of the Punktastic podcast, which can be downloaded or streamed right here, New-Noise give the 7" a big thumbs up here and there's an interview up on Subba-Cultcha. Xfm have been playing the single and you should be hearing it on Radio One this week, too.

The guys are over in Ireland right now, doing their thing, touring the Guinness factory, drinking with leprechauns and searching for gold, or whatever it is that bands do in Dublin. The response to the UK dates of the last couple of weeks has been brilliant and a huge thank you goes out to everyone who attended. They'll be back out on the road throughout the summer, including the 2000 Trees festival in Cheltenham and a number of London shows.

'Feed Me A Box Of Words' is in shops on Monday. Believe me when I say it's not going to be around for long. Anyone emailing me in 3 months time saying "I meant to buy it but I forgot/had no money/didn't believe you when you said it was going to sell out" will receive little to no sympathy from this cold-hearted "├╝ber-label" (thanks NME)
