One of my favourite things in the issue, though, is John Lewis’ review of the new Beck release, “Song Reader” – a bunch of new songs in sheet music form. John, possessing a musical talent conspicuously missing from most of his colleagues, has posted his piano versions of the Beck songs on Youtube, and I’ve linked to one of them, the excellent “Saint Dude”, below.

Also please check out the excellent new UMO track, linked below, and the radical new version of “Helpless” from Calgary. Not everything else here has gone down so well, but special mention to that long-awaited new one from Matmos. Good to have them back: the Buzzcocks cover is remarkable, for a start…
