    Here we are boys and girls, come on and get happy, as this is another session of Top of the Robs.

    Refraining from falling into the ugly pit of Smash Hits and friends, which contains reviews of six characters or less (e.g. Funky pop ballad - Rockin' fun party tune - Charlie is Fit), I put down the classic Top Ten, review them and add a lucky dip to t'bottom.

    They Might Be Giants - New York City
    Stranglers - (Get a) Grip (on Yourself)
    Raveonettes - My Boyfriend's Back
    Angry Samoans - Posh Boy's Cock
    Beat Happening - Our Secret
    X - Adult Books
    Jilted John - The Birthday Kiss
    Gypsey - Smile In Hell
    The Monks - Shut Up
    Raveonettes - Let's Rave On

    The Top track of the week this time took me by surprise. I've heard it a few times, but I took another listen and it suddenly ruled the world. Factory Showroom is as good as Flood, and not much people realise it. Another song from the record that's recorded without electricity using one of Edison's devices from 1898 (I Can Hear You) can't be wrong.
