Thanks to their lovely ex-manager Del and vocalist Alex, I’ve now got my hands on Bender’s final album and permission to share it with you all. You lucky, lucky people.

Picking up where ‘Lost City Of Dalston’ finished, Jehovas Allstars is a natural progression from its predecessor. The music and words have even more punch and depth and carry a real sense of life within them. Imagine the bastard offspring of The Ex and The Astronauts raised on a diet of hiphop, English Romanticism and steroids and you’ll probably be none the wiser. Like the best ‘punk’, it’s uncategorisable.

This is another criminally unknown recording, so take full advantage of what’s on offer. Your head and feet will thank you.

OP’s opinion: Five

Bender were another free fest fixture ‘n’ fitting (well, with a name like bender, what did you expect?) and added a further dimension to the great bands and songs that such a culture inspired. There’s all of the dubby skanky stuff you’d rightly expect but with some really slick funky discordance and left-field tuneship layered on – just check out the cover of Op Ivy’s ‘Freez Up’ for evidence of their ability to creatively recycle an old classic. It’s eminently danceable, musically engaging and lyrically clever, even raising a chuckle or two along the way.

OP’s opinion: Four
