Weekly Round Up

Monday - Fresh Meat Monday saw a first double header, with the excellenet King Post Kitsch and Midas Fall both answering questions for me
Tuesday - was all about the Homegame Live Recordings that evenutally the DMCA made me remove. It would have been a lot simpler for whoever wanted it removed to just email me in person. But hey we can't go compalining to the 'man', we've all seen what happens to those who complain.
Wednesday - The Gothenburg Address were our seventh victims for 'Scots Way-Hay', and a recording of Meursault's session for Marc Riley.
Thursday - Jim 'Ayetunes' did some 'Community Service' and even announced a wee gig that we're putting on together. Plus there was Frightened Rabbit's WOXY Session and the second part of the Homegame Recordings
Friday - as always it was about the free stuff
Saturday - was all about SXSW recordings, including Frightened Rabbit and Local Natives (there was a Sleigh Bells recording up there too, but I stupildy forgot to post a download link, that'll be getting fixed tomorrow).

News, things that are happening, etc....

North Atlantic Oscillation release their debut album, 'Grappling Hooks', as they were one of my 'Tips for 2010' I am understandably pretty excited about getting my mucky paws on this one.

You can catch them live this week, Friday at 26th Sneaky Pete's in Edinburgh and Saturday 27th March at the Captains Rest in Glasgow.

Silver Columns, Malcolm Middleton, thecocknbullkid, James Yuill and Casiokids play the ABC2 on the 17th of June. The gig is being organised by the JD Set, who have invitedthe bands to collaborate and revive work from Madonna's album 'The Best of...'. , sounds like it could be a lot of fun to me.Further information can be found here.

Lastly, things coming up this week include some live recordings from Local Natives, Sleigh Bells and Teenage Fan Club, plus a session from the fabulous Mitchell Museum.
Julia and the Doogans answer a few questions in Fresh Meat Mondays, Scots Way-Hay have still to be confirmed, and Jenny Soep will be doing some 'Coummunity Service'. Oh and as always there will be Freebies on Friday. Should be a belter of a week.
