Out of the ashes of At The Drive-In comes the mighty Mars Volta whose new full-length confirms there was something dark & sinister lurking in The Drive-In afros.

Various Artists

These guys are like that Bjork song "It's Oh So Quiet" but their manic mood swings keep us enthralled.

"The Devastations" (CD)
Featuring Augogo's very own swarthy open shirted wonder Conrad Standish, the riffarama of Tom Carlyon & the precise rock steadiness of Hugo Cran, the Devastations explore the seemier side of love, betrayal & subsequent obsession on their achingly emotive debut where the only way to stop the hurt is to turn up the feedback.

"We Got This!" (CD) (2LP)
Word is, this is the LAST release from Rob Younger & co, but they leave us with as much sweatin' style as we've come to love.

Radio 4
"Gotham!" (CD) (LP)
All hail the new new wave. Latest bearers of the jerkily danceable angular guitar torch. Is it fuck art let's dance or fuck dance let's art? You be the judge.
