There was a stretch in the mid '00s when I listened to THE BAYONETTES almost every day (this thought encouraged me to listen to THE BAYONETTES today, in fact). I also listened to DANGER LOVES a fair bit during that same period. I didn't know who SHIVVERS were when Paco scored the "Please Stand By" 45 at Flipville, but I fell in love with them shortly thereafter. And two of my desert island 45s are by BUREAUCRATS and WHITE HEAT. Helsinki's PLASTIC TONES are a little more laid back than most of the aforementioned acts, but in a really fukkn cool "summer night cruising really slow" way that almost makes them even cooler. It's just brilliant power pop, and it's really damn good. There's a recent LP that will be on my turntable soon....which is good, since i'm about to wear this tape out.

Been really digging this the last couple weeks especially "boring party". Third song is only two seconds though .
