Best of November 2004

American Idiot - Green Day
Listen to MP3 previews
American Idiot - Green Day
I will admit from the start Green Day have never really been my cup of tea, I have enjoyed odd tracks but for me they were never "punk rock" (well at least the way I remember it anyway!)... More details...
Kasabian - Kasabian
Listen to MP3 previews
Kasabian - Kasabian
This four-piece out of Leicester are apparently one of Liam Gallagher's favourite bands, and for once he may be right! With a rock sound that incorporates throbbing electronica, Kasabian make swaggering anthemic (first single "Club Foot" is an absolute scorcher) pop music that recalls the better... More details...
London Calling (25th Anniversary Edition) - The Clash
Listen to MP3 previews
London Calling (25th Anniversary Edition) - The Clash

You know you're getting a wee bit older when one of your favourite teenage records hits "25th Anniversary" time - fortunately when the album is as good as this one the old stroll down memory lane guarantees a smile... More details...
The Fanatics - The Fanatics
Listen to MP3 previews
The Fanatics - The Fanatics
It's not that The Fanatics don't like drummers, they just don't need them (unless of course they're short of a beer or three…)... More details...
Damage - Blues Explosion
Listen to MP3 previews
Damage - Blues Explosion
Having dropped the Jon Spencer in favour of the snappier and more band orientated Blues Explosion, Spencer and longtime cohorts Judah Bauer and Russell Simins leave behind 2002's rather forgettable 'Plastic Fang' in favour of this rather more leaner and explosive album... More details...
Aha Shake Heartbreak - Kings Of Leon
Listen to MP3 previews
Aha Shake Heartbreak - Kings Of Leon
Cracking out of the same period of rock resurrection that brought us mighty debuts from the likes of The Strokes and The Datsuns, the young southern brothers (and their cousin) known as Kings Of Leon delivered a stunning debut in 'Youth And Young Manhood', then proceeded to conquer the western...

Mishaps Happening - Quantic
Listen to MP3 previews
Mishaps Happening - Quantic
Blurring the lines between modern production and live instrumentation, UK based collective Quantic are as much electronic manipulators as they are a jazz-funk band, resulting in the sort of organic futurism the likes of 4 Hero, Masters At Work and even Herbie Hancock do so well... More details...
From A Basement On The Hill - Elliott Smith
Listen to MP3 previews
From A Basement On The Hill - Elliott Smith
Smith's untimely death in October 2003 (from a self-inflicted knife wound - although "officially" the jury is still out on this) was quite simply a musical travesty, and much like that of legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Nick Drake, Gram Parsons, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Buckley, Smith was genuinely at the...

The Return Of Jack Splash - Plant Life
Listen to MP3 previews
The Return Of Jack Splash - Plant Life
Bored with the constraints of pre-existing genre distinctions in "pop" music, this Los Angeles quartet known as Plant Life (vocalist Jack Splash, producer Panda One, plus vocalist Dena Deadly and DJ Rashida The Beautiful) set out to break down any remaining barriers between hip hop, soul and good...
