Aggi Doom 7" launch playlist

Sunday night gigs are a tough sell.  Some really great groups have played to fairly sparse crowds on recent Sunday nights in Glasgow so it was a great relief to see a healthy crowd for the launch of Aggi Doom's (link below) tremendous debut single.  The group looked amazing, especially drummer Scott in his turban and black robe (dress?) ensemble, and delivered their glamourous gloom pop with verve.  The highlight of their set was the single, "Bring Me The Head", for which they were enhanced by bassist Joan's dad on sax and a friend (whose name I didn't catch - whoops) on clarinet for added No Wave power.   Palms were as full on and as shouty as I could have wished and Northern American War rocked angularly for maybe just a little too long.  The Soft Power Records kids were kind enough to let me dust off some of my 7" vinyl collection and share it with their public.  Here's what I played:
