Ric Rawlins, Artrocker:
There are at least a dozen potential Single Of The Months scattered about this compilation from Sheffield DIY label Keep Pop Loud, but there's one that sticks out like cheap tinsel: the almighty return of Glam Chops.
Their contribution, 'Tarzan's Glam Rock Adventure', is a seven-minute epic which follows Tarzan as he gets taught the fine art of Glam by forest-dwelling monkeys, then divorces Jane and sails downstream in search of the mysterious tribe of the Panther Girls. Or something. Either way, it contains ridiculous guitar solos, tin-can drums and a ten second intermission of 'Lonely This Christmas' - which should be enough to recommend it.
Glam Chops are in good company too: MJ Hibbett sings warmly about how hi Nan used to buy him 2000AD on the charming indie-pop number '2000AD Nan' while Bordeuxxx offer up what might become the feelgood hit of the winter with 'Every Holiday Is A Disaster', which sounds like Los Campesinos discovering the mystical missing chord.
More brilliance comes from H Bird (think Saint Etienne with cheaper keyboards) and Pris, who offer a deliciously twisted take on 1950s girl gang pop with 'Icon On A Motorbike'
