song of the week 26: cornershop - biro pen

It's been a while since we heard from Cornershop. Yesterday I picked up their excellent new album for a very reasonable price from one of my favourite CD shops.

As is the way of these things, a while ago Brill Records in Exmouth Market--for it is they of whom I speak--were obliged to diversify into bagels and coffees in order to keep their business going, but they still care about music. They've still got a good selection (rock, indie, soul, folk, jazz, world music), still pick out the best new releases and display them prominently alongside reviews from recent newspapers cut out and pasted up on a noticeboard.

Their genial and usually upbeat proprietor tells me though that sadly sales of CDs are now quite few and far between. Shame.

If you're passing by why not pop in and treat yourself to some new music?

End of commercial break...
