This month we've got another five more songs ready to play and/or download, making a running total of twenty seven free tracks available on this site so far. How great is that? We've added previously unreleased songs from old Brighton favourites Emma Sharpe & The Feautures, The Exclusives, Fan Club, Life Size Models and The Piranhas. And there are still more to come.

Odd how The Piranhas never released Things Could Be Worse or Feel Queer When You Aint Here, two real old gems. With the benefit of thirty years' hindsight, these two songs would have made a fine A side and B side for a single. Rough and ready they may be, but you can enjoy them now in all their digital glory. Go...

The launch of our free mp3 downloads page in March was set up in conjunction with PunkBrighton and Julie Blair and Stuart Jones of Attrix Records, to commemorate 30 years of punk (see our March Archive) and has been a huge success. If you have mp3's of your band (1976-81) and you want them uploaded, keep sending them in. Thanks again to all who sent in WAVS, aiffs, wmv's and mp3's. Much appreciated. No doubt we'll be adding a few more next month, watch this space.

• Congratulations are in order to Brighton & Hove Albion FC. After a ten year battle against all the odds the Seagulls have finally got permission for a new stadium at Falmer. It's all very well the council patting themselves on the back now, but how Belotti and his cronies were allowed to dispose of the Goldstone in the first place still escapes me. Market forces? 'Nuff said.
