So here it is, back round again. The festive season was especially good fun blog-wise last year, I'd decided to stop the 2009 version of vinyl rips and go into the less frequent (before its slow painful death) 2010 incarnation. There were few extra special treats that I'd been saving, so here's a couple of lazy-bastard reposts to commemorate things this year, alongside the FACTORY FLOOR rip below.

Xmas 2010 for me so far has been a bit of a nightmare as hardly any of the presents I've ordered online have arrived, and the bank knocked me back for a tenner yesterday which is a new record. BUT - it's been a fairly mental couple of weeks of gigs, clubbing and other assorted over indulgences so I've done no bad.

Right, off to see Drum Eyes at the Captains Rest. Have a great couple of weeks...

Factory Floor - Bipolar

7" released on Outside Sound from 2008, up here for a VERY SHORT TIME so get it while it's hot.

What can I say? The band of 2010 for me by a country mile. I went on about them enough over the course of the year and posted as much as I thought I could get away with so if you were a regular you'll know what I'm on about.

Managed to see 'em three times, the best of which was on the Optimo stage at the Electric Frog Street Carnival back in the summer. A superb live act, and I'm gutted I can't afford to go and see them at the ICA in February with Chris & Cosey. Fuck me - that's a helluva line-up.

Anyway, this was an early release and came out on Claire from Rotters' label. Nice orange vinyl as well. I won't be keeping the link up so if you've not got it then get a fuckin move on.

Merry Xmas m'dears, and thanks again for all the support you gave the blog over the 18 (or thereabouts) months...
