Sulking links

Posted: September 29th, 2002, by Marceline Smith

Well, I’m home and sulking cos I ain’t got no money to go and see Erase Errata. Damn Sleazy’s for not ever doing tickets. If they’d sold tickets I would have bought one weeks ago and I wouldn’t be in this jam.

So, anyway, I’ve been wading through the visitor referrals and have found some new reading for you.

The Rub looks jolly nice and reads rather well too. Plus every week it offers some darn good MP3s to download.

Stumpshaker doesn’t seem to get updated too often [but who are we to talk…] but there’s some interesting stuff in the archives though, lots of it film related which makes a nice change from all the music blogs.

– Jill who I met at Audioscope has an ace Oxford-based website Nunuworld with local music stuff, a blog and a rather fantastic gigblog of every single gig she’s been to this year!

– The always great Skippy’s Cage has a Cat on Form Tour Diary by Dan of their recent UK jaunt which makes for amusing reading of bodily damage and giant watermelons. Good luck to Skippy as well who is off to live in the US of A shortly. How will London manage without him?

– I’m not entirely sure what Transmission Disorder is but it looks like quite a good thing. Obviously keen on the new wave of garage rock bands, there’s news and reviews, interviews, quizzing rock stars on how ROCK they actually are and lots of little bits and pieces.

Eroding Empire is a website full of information on DIY action and events in London and they can have a link purely for calling diskant “for the indie kids”. Cheers.

If that’s not enough for you then there’s plenty in the diskant links pages to keep you occupied. Check the New Links page for our latest finds or the Go See Sites for our current favourites.
