DAMAGED GOODS FIX YOU UP: If you spend any portion of your day wondering whatever happened to The Bristols - and let's face it, you probably have, you'll be delighted to hear that their vocalist Fabienne Delsol has got her debut album. It's called No Time For Sorrows, and it's pretty damn cool.

If you've never heard the Bristols - or, come to that, Budget Girls or Anorak Girl - there's stuff to listen to on the puff page for the latest Damaged Goods sampler - all the tracks can be listened to via Real Audio, but the album's only four quid so you might as well just buy one. As well bands-you've-never-heard-of, there are famouser acts like Thee Headcoatees, Helen Love, Terry Edwards, Holly Golightly and - of course - something from the Manic Street Preachers short period with the label.
