Audio / Video Selections from Designer Magazine


W/C 24th July

Artist Magic Numbers
Title / Format Love Me Like You Video)
Description "Love Me Like You" is one of the stand-out tracks from the Magic Numbers self-titled debut album. A glorious summer pop record which in our eyes sits byalbums the Boo Radleys, Super Furry Animals, Gomez and The High Llamas as pure bursts of Sunshine.

Artist Fischerspooner
Title / Format Never Win (Video)
Description Most of you will remember the story of Fischerspooner. They came in a blaze of make up and electro synthpop just a few months before electroclash really kicked off, they signed to Ministry for reported megabucks and then it all f**ked up. The 2nd album "Odyssesy" sees them with a new label and writing proper pop tunes. This is one of them

Artist The Game
Title / Format Dreams (Video)
Description The Game played a storming show at the Manchester Apollo in which he managed to wind up a Scouser for a full 30 minutes by dissing 50 Cent with "50 Cent can suck my dick". "Dreams" is the follow up to the massive "Hate It or Love It" and features the vocal talents of US R&B starlet Mya.

Artist The Automatic
Title / Format Monster - Audio Streams
Description Those regular readers of Designer Magazine will know we're suckers for Welsh bands whether it be The Manics, Super Furry Animals, Funeral For A Friend or Goldie Lookin Chain. The Automatic are our favourite new Welsh band. Signed to B-Unique, home to The Ordinary Boys, Kaiser Chiefs and The Cardinals these Welsh poppers look set to take on the Killers, The Departure and The Bravery with huge synth laden pop tunes

Artist British Whale (aka Justin Hawkins from The Darkness)
Title / Format This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us
Description Personally we prefer the Sparks original, but as seen as the younger members of The Darkness' fanbase won't have heard of Sparks it helps to get the song out to a wider audience. The video's quietly amusing though with Ron and Russ Mael in it and also Phil "The Power" Taylor, the Worlds Darts Champion

Those faint hearted rockers don't expect anything less than extreme here

Artist Zakk Wylde
Title / Format Fire It Up Video
Description For the past few months we haven't been able to open up a rock magazine without hearing about Zakk Wylde. In fact it's got to the point whenever we go online chat forums someone's always called Zakk Wylde. Watch the video for "Fire It Up" and find out why everyone's so obsessed.

Artist UB40
Title / Format Kiss & Say Goodbye (Video)
Description Believe it or not when I was about 10 I used to like UB40. The new single "Kiss And Say Goodbye" sounds like classic UB40 which is a good or bad thing depending on whether you'd class yourself as a fan

Title / Format One Word (Audio)
Description If you've seen any British tabloid in the past month you'll have seen enough of Kelly Osbourne's cleavage to last a lifetime. From a visual treat to an audio one...here's Kelly's news single "One Word" which sounds like a Carbon Copy of Visage's "Fade To Grey"

Artist Funeral For A Friend
Title / Format Street Car (Audio)

Artist The Ordinary Boys
Title / Format Boys Will Be Boys (Video)
Description Just as we were starting to get bored with their cod Smiths / Jam schtick, Preston and the boys have a change of plan and deliver the sort of ska throwback that the Dead 60s and Hard-Fi are currently reviving. Not so much a return to form, but the first single to make us really get the Ordinary Boys...maybe Mozzer was right afterall
