Never Mind The Buzzcocks...'s late-nineties Pete Shelley & co soundalikes Sportique!

Bit of an indie supergroup, Sportique, containing as it does (did) former members of the Razorcuts, Television Personalities and Heavenly. Amelia Fletcher even ended up playing keyboards for them, so their twee credentials can't be in doubt. Here are two of their two early John Peel-friendly 7" singles. Marvellous.

Buy Sportique stuff

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a leaders' debate to continue to half-listen to. Still can't get used to the idea of Brown and Cameron calling each other by their christian names rather than the more traditional, grudging "him" that you get during PMQs. It's mildly disconcerting and more than a little creepy. You two hate each other's guts, remember?

I agree with Nick, by the way!

Aw man, I loved Sportique. They should've been massive.

So good to hear Gregory playing 'The Kids are Solid Gold' at Indietracks 2008.
