Lomana Lua Lua X Panini Cheapskates X United Glasgow FC = THE BEST CHARITY COMPILATION!

It’s 17th September 2006, and right on cue at The Valley, Tresor Lomana Lua Lua is springing into his legendary 360 flip, Scott Carson’s despairing glove not enough to parry an uncharacteristically tepid effort from rolling into the Charlton net. It’s an inglorious but well-appreciated win, and while it fires Portsmouth temporarily to the pinnacle of British football, elsewhere in deepest Dorset on the way to End of the Road Festival in a barely legal family saloon, two scruffy indie kids punch the air.

False Advertising Sign to Alcopop! We get excited!

We've only gone and signed the coolest three-piece in Manchester - False Advertising!

After various band member arrangements and ad-hoc instrument swapping, False Advertising have settled into one of the most exciting groups on the scene, and we're psyched to have them on board. We're getting goosebumps just thinking about their upcoming debut album 'Brainfreeze', out 8th November which you can get here.
