22 key records played in the Uncut office this past week…

First off, a quick update on the unsavoury Mark Kozelek business that I wrote about here on Tuesday. In case you haven’t seen this on The Guardian site, Laura Snapes has written about her interview with Kozelek, and about her response to the subsequent abuse: I can’t recommend enough that you should read it… .

In the interim, a bunch of interesting new records turned up in the Uncut office – notably the one by The Cairo Gang – and the embargos were lifted on a few more that we’ve had to keep quiet about these past few weeks: Beirut, a great Eleventh Dream Day comeback and, perhaps most remarkably and unexpectedly, the return of Flying Saucer Attack…
