THIS week's entry rushes us away from the many quieter acoustic tracks we have received so far.

The Brackets present their thumping and distorted Same Old Story - mixing the lyrical qualities and sounds of The Jam, The Libertines and Oasis to create a piece of classic rock and roll social commentary.

Songwriter Dan Burke rattles through his dark observations of the underpass, blood on the pavements, kids with knives and the police "do not cross" tape with a similar eye to Paul Weller's That's Entertainment. However, the song mixes this negativity with an interesting unwillingness or apathy to escape it all - it becomes an anti-anthem of sorts. The St Neots band are playing in the battle Of The Bands final at The Spirit and Soul bar in Peterborough on March 8 and also at The Wrestlers in St Neots on 16 March.
