Spin 2 Delightful Tunes From Poundstore Riot Here

I first read the name of this band as Poundstone Riot. Then I got it right: Poundstore Riot.

In America we've got "dollar stores" and they are like another universe of awfulness. I would hope the equivalent in the U.K. would be a good deal better.

Poundstore Riot is Ash Cooke, from Pulco and Derrero, and Stuart Kidd, from The Wellgreen. So far these two -- a Welshman and a Scot -- have cranked out 2 tunes that are redolent of early SFA and classic Teenage Fanclub.

(And, no, I didn't use those two references only 'cause of the Wales and Scotland aspects.)

For now, play these tunes and follow Ash on his Pulco website and Stuart on his Bandcamp page.
