When space invaders were big

If, like me, you still mourn for the passing of 90s gripepop heroes Prolapse, then here's something that might brighten your spirits. Trev from Oddbox Records is putting together an album of their songs played by modern-day pop stars. A tribute album, if you must - but then I hate that term.

Anyway, bands already one hundred per cent interested and/or committed to the project, honest guv, are MJ Hibbett and the Validators, Magoo, The Wednesday Club, The Mai 68s, Leaf Library and The Humms, which is a pretty good start, but it's not enough. Your country needs you to take part, and it doesn't matter if you don't have a Scottish accent or a tiny, pretty woman in your band. No, a love of Prolapse is all you need, as the Beatles once said.

For those not au fait with Prolapse: 1. Why not? 2. Don't eat your tea whilst you're googling their name. And, don't, whatever you do, click on the 'images' tab.

Get in touch with Odd Box if you'd like to take part, won't you? Or email me and I'll pass your offer to cover 'Surreal Madrid' on to Trev, if you like.
