92. Girls Aloud – “Love Machine”

There is one good thing, and one good thing only, about indie zine The Fly. It is free, and handily available for homeward bound tube reading from Victoria HMV.

This month is the first of a new year, and a new year means New Music which only The Fly can ‘turn you on’ to. So the magazine asked some of the movers and shakers on the scene to give their tips for the sound of ’05.

Well their replies were various, yes various, but they all had one thing in common. They all sounded the same. You mean they all sounded similar? No, they –

– ah, hold on, wrong entry.

One of the Fly’s interviewees had something interesting to say, though. “I think rockabilly will be back this year,” said the programme director of XFM. Or maybe it was the publicist for the Kaiser Chiefs. Or the guitarist for Kasabian.

“I think rockabilly will be back this year, but with some electronic sounds, so it’s not just a retro thing.”

And I thought, hold on, that sounds familiar…
