Agent Simple rocking Cosy Den!
Agent Simple, rocking Cosy Den just a week and a bit ago… sniff…

Tonight’s top new tune has winged its way from fair Gothenburg to…um… the vast building site known as Derby. It was the insanely catchy ‘Make A Right At Jordsfallmotet’ by Agent Simple. It’s a stomping, strumming indie singalong that reminds me lyrically of Jonathan Richman, vocally of Calvin Johnson and musically of prime Joe Meek. As always with great music, it transcends those influences and becomes something new. But am I shitting you? Make up your own heads by clicking here and listening to the track yourself.

The best old tune was ‘Middle Of The Road’ by Denim. The older it gets, the more eerily prescient it sounds. No doubt about it, Lawrence is one hell of a songwriter.
