4.52am: Issue 054 The Breeders Issue

This week in 4.52am we are taking a week or two off, so it was good to be able to put the wonderful Breeders on our front cover as they have a seriously cool new single out we just had to share.

Guitar-wise we have a beauty from Duesenberg, and a couple of lessons for AC/DC and Velvet Underground fans.

Music comes from World Party, Kit Walker and Breakfast Muff and then La Contessa goes through the decades all over again.

All in all, not too shabby and we’ll see you on the 18th of October with a shiny new format.
