The Oslo Report house-band Dos Slags Anglaise have been busy again and coughed up this wrong 'un. Bit more pace from the Slags this time round and towards the end you'll hear a slice of George Kranz's Din Da Da lobbed in for good measure. For those after the original you could do worse than seek out the Breakdance 2: Electric Boogaloo soundtrack album. Believe In The Beat by Carol Lyn Townes is on there and as cheesy at it is, still works for me. Until then... enjoy

From atop the cultural summit that is Stone in England's Midlandshire (above) comes Dos Slags Anglaise and this fiercely compelling head-nodder. Sampling such curios of yesteryear as Meat Beat Manifesto's Radio Babylon and JVC Force's mighty Strong Island it's a rock solid warm up tune. Expect more from Dos Slags here soon.

Yep after eight months of questionable success at Grant and Green in San Francisco's North Beach, The Oslo Report is moving to the much more suitable 222 Club on Hyde. We haven't called the G+G crew yet to tell them, so it's just as well they don't read this blog really - I'll get round to it. In the meantime here's a duo of tracks I probably won't play at 222, but maybe should. From the forgotten band Soviet, their difficult to get album 'We Are Eyes, We Are Builders' is a benchmark for modern bands who want to sound all eighties, but still sort of modern, but actually quite eighties. In amongst the electroclash of the early 2000s they really stood out from the Miss Kittens, the Green Velvets and the Mount Sims' etc... Although to be fair Kitten's first album was good and Mount Sims' album was rather underrated. Green Velvet were shit though.
I just remembered I emailed Soviet once. They replied back too. Which made me feel cool for about five mins. I've just googled them and that bloke in the pic is still in them according to their myspace.
Soviet - Marbleyezed
Soviet - Circuit Love
