DJ popscum, WLUW-FM1) Franz Ferdinand – s/t (Domino)
2) UV Turks/Serial P.O.P. – Angst Against Crisis (Good Science, serialpop.com)
Criminally, brilliantly accessible. I list this for 2004 because seemingly no one but WLUW and the band has been able to get their hands on it and I have no idea when or if it will get a proper release. Why the British music media haven't picked up on these guys baffles me.
