I'm really enjoying all of this on bandcamp and I'm going to be buying a nice CD before the day is out.

That looks like a great show you're putting on in Whelan's. I'd love to make it but I don't think I can. I'm delighted to finally hear so many great local indiepop bands. Where'd they all come out of :) I've never heard of any them apart Sea Pinks though, but then I'm from up north, with my head stuck up my arse most of the time.

The new compilation is fantastic too. The Squarehead song on it is one of nicest bits of chorus-writing I've heard in quite a while. (It also has the merit that its first two distorted notes remind me of the start of dEUS' 'Put the freaks up front'.)
the trouble with personalities, they're too wrapped up in style
it's too personal; they're in love with their own guile

I'm a recent convert to the Popical Island stuff.

This new record is pretty great: http://thecommunitygames.bandcamp.com/
