Less Jools, More Top Of The Pops - Slime City's debut track is our new unofficial anthem

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll be well aware of Dork’s unofficial motto - Down With Boring. If we were looking for another way to phrase that mission statement, we’d probably go for the title of one of the debut tracks from Glasgow’s Slime City.

‘Less Jools More Top Of The Pops’ is exactly the sort of manic blast we firmly approve of, with its refrain of "one more Hootenanny’s gonna kill me" bringing back memories of many a tragic New Year's Eve spent stuck in front of a telly listening to endless boogie woogie piano in a depressing act of domestic self harm.

It comes backed with a second track, ‘Same Genes’, with a limited edition cassette set for release on 15th August. You can check out both tracks below.

"Basically we don't think the JOOLS franchise (later, hootenanny, infinity war) is a representative replacement for TOTP, a weekly, garish, exciting chart-based mainstream television show, and we would like something like that back," the band tweeted. Which, obviously, we agree with. 

Slime City are set to play a pair of Glasgow shows over the next few weeks, appearing at Bloc on 15th August and Hug and Pint on the 25th. We'd highly recommend you check them out.
