New fierce panda arrivals MY ARCHITECTS are set to release their debut album in early 2006 as are Stokey tykes AGENT BLUE. Finally free from their Island Records deal AGENT BLUE's record is called 'A Stolen Honda Vision' and is released on January 23rd (catalogue number NONG 40CD) and comes stuffed full of 'Snowhill' 'Sex Drugs...' and all the other mini-hits. A brand new single is pencilled in for February 7th. Meanwhile having spent much of 2005 recording with Keane producer James Sanger and fretting over their name MY ARCHITECTS come from Warrington England and craft epically understated leftfield melodic pop songs. Their record is called 'Grand Designs' and the catalogue number is NONG41CD and the band are 'playing out' to promote the album and www.myspace.com/architectsmusic is the place to go for more subtle hurrahs.
