Dear people with ears. This is a shameless plug that makes us feel no shame at all. Out this week is Spiritualized's new record Songs In A&E. We got a copy of it about six months ago and have listened to it almost daily. We’re urging you to buy it because it’s about the only British record for such a long time to have any effect on us. And look out for J.Spaceman's article about Mississippi Records (online today) and the soon-to-be-aired Spiritualized episode of Practice Space on VBS.
