Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 54

Hello folks, we're back after last week's break. We weren't allowed to tell you why we couldn't record a show last week but the embargo has now been lifted. Laggers was actually piloting the Queen's boat along the Thames for the jubilee celebrations and thought that more important than spinning vinyl for you faithful listeners. Bastard!

He ended up getting lost and before him and the royal gang knew it they were out the estuary and half way to France. It was actually a stand in bunch of royal lookey likeys they had to use for the rest of the week as the proper toffs were too shellshocked from listening to his mixtape of Fall b-sides and Country Teasers songs for hours on end. 

Liz was last seen in Music and Video Exchange in Notting Hill Gate looking for a copy of Hex Induction Hour to nurse Phil through his bladder problems.

That's enough waffle, down to this week's show. We've got a sterling batch of songs for you as usual, if you want to download it, do it here.

Do the Duck – The Autographs
When It Comes to You – Dead Ghosts
Castiatic Tackle – Thee Oh Sees
