Love in A Void - (Dont Care collection)SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES
Who have been drawing record breaking crowds in and around London recently, and even broke the box office at the Vortex, which is currently the premiers punk club in the Capital. Not bad for an unsigned band. However no deals ain't all doom 'n' gloom coz today they actually manage to buy their very own drumkit! Owning your own gear is great, however it certainly makes their travelling arrangements far more gruelling as they squeeze into the back of their hired Transit van once more!

Stranglers move further into the dark side - (Dont Care collection)
Are sent off by their manager and record label top write their next album in the wilds of nowhere at a place called Bear Shank Lodge. The remote location and added stimulants result in their next piece of work...'Black & White'.
