    Like Simon Reynolds said, it's been a very strong end to the year for Hauntological releases. I especially loved DD Denham and Pye Corner Audio Transcription Services. Alas haven't managed to get holf of a copy of the new moon wiring club (i'd prefer an Mp3 download as opposed to a CD copy, but i'll take what i can get).

    But no Demdike stare though? Perhaps not English enough....

    I haven't heard anything from Demdike Stare this year that was as strong as SYMBIOSIS, to be honest.

    VHS Head was indeed an excellent release. Lots of good stuff actually. Personally I think both oOoOO and SALEM's are at the top of my list (but they're non UK) together with Darkstar's North, more Rustie and Terror Danjah's first longplayer.

    I quite liked the new Demdike Stare releases, but I agree with Warren, doesn't quite live up to Symbiosis.

    Just received my combo package of the A Spare Tabby at the Cat's Wedding. Been playing the hell out of the CD version this morning.

    All of the Study Series releases have been great. The world needs more Broadcast & The Focus Group collab.

    i will definitely admit that "Liberation through hearing" was patchy, but i really dug "Forest of Evil"... a lot.

    Out of all the Study series, i also agree that Broadcast & the Focus groups track "Inside Out" was far and away the best of them.

    I really liked the Moon Wiring Club / Belbury Poly Study 7" , particularly " The Young People".

    I'd like to give a a shout out for Position Normal's recent self-titled album , which you can order on cassette
    ( with free mp3 version thrown in ) here. Definitely should be added to the Confusing English Electronic Music canon.

    Also out in time for Christmas , Mordant Music's fabulous rescoring of vintage public information films in association with the BFI. Fabulous. He's another veteran of the Outer Church in Brighton. Did we mention that Position Normal's playing this month ? Ok then.
