Post "How Soon Is Now?" reading playlist

Tonight's reading/Q&A at Mono with Richard King was really enjoyable. More to follow on that in due course but in the meantime here's what I played (particularly ineptly) this time:

Suicide Cheree (Remix) (Blast First)
Dirty Beaches True Blue (Art Fag)
Grab Grab The Haddock For All We Know (Cherry Red)
The Wake On Our Honeymoon (Captured Tracks -reissue)
Aggi Doom Bring Me The Head (Soft Power)
The Make-up Pow! To The People (Vesuvius)
Amelia Fletcher Can You Keep A Secret? (Fierce Recordings)
A Certain Ratio Do The Du (Soul Jazz)
The Evolution Control Committee Rebel Without A Pause (Pickled Egg)
Sweet Tee I Got Da Feelin' (Cooltempo)
bratmobile Cool Schmool (K)
Unrest Cath Carroll (Teen Beat)
Huggy Bear Her Jazz (Wiiija)
Gang of Four I Found That Essence Rare (Peel Session) (Strange Fruit)
The Petticoats Normal (Blah-Blah-Blah)
My Favorite The Informers and Us (Harriet)
The Bats Made Up In Blue (Flying Nun)
Silicon Teens Just Like Eddie (Mute)
Marie Applebee Toom Toom (Jubilee)
Talulah Gosh Bringing Up Baby (53rd & 3rd)
Adventures In Stereo Nobody's Scared (Subway Sect cover) (Creeping Bent)
Strawberry Whiplash Stop, Look and Listen (Matinee)

Somewhat shockingly for Not Unloved, some of these records were on 12" vinyl (yeah, I know...gasp!).  I had planned to work through the likes of MARRS "Pump Up The Volume" and Bill Drummond's "Julian Cope Is Dead" but, somehow it didn't quite happen.  It was, however, sweet to hear post-Marine Girls group Grab Grab The Haddock at a decent volume in a nice, airy venue where people were chatting in a relaxed way.  It was fun, too, to be able play Aggi Doom's forthcoming single.  Thanks for making that happen Soft Power Records!
