Popjustice Homepage "Who's Been Down The Pound Shop?"

Popjustice receive their promo item for Alex Gaudino's "Watch Out";

"Alex Guadino has. He was momentarily distracted by the ten-packets-for-a-quid Polish Jaffa cakes and tempted to splash out on some shop-soiled tampons but in the end, and because his new pop video features some pretty ladies doing footbally things, he plumped for a job lot of table football sets. Once home he put some little stickers on them and sent them out. GOOOALLLLLL!!!!!!!! (?)."

Alex Gaudino On KISS FM Blog

"Bold, brassy, and using the infamous horn sample from Pig Bag's big afro hit, 'Papa's Got A Brand New Pig Bag', Alex Gaudino is back with the follow up to last year's massive hit 'Destination Calabria'.

'Watch Out' is the sound of party house music with a real summer vibe, expect to hear this tune in every pub/club in the country for the next three months.

Summer has well and truly landed"

Ricki Lee Popjustice Song Of The Day!

"U Wanna Little Of This" is today's song of the day on Popjustice;

"A massive stupid rave-up anthem which will appeal to fans of Booty Luv..

Donna Summer has a new album coming out on June 23. This is not a song from it but if Donna was 19 this year she might be turning in something a bit like 'U Wanna Little Of This', which benefits from:

1. Having a brilliant breakdown bit.

2. Sounding a bit like a remix of a Beyonce record.

3. Coming with a good chorus."

Sonny J Handsfree Is Lucio's Record Of The Week On Capital!!

Lucio has picked "Handsfree" as his Record Of The Week on London's Capital 95.8fm!!

"Lucio loves new music and we've decided it's time to bring Record of the Week back so Lucio can bring you a new song he's really loving.

This week it's 'Handsfree (If You Hold My Hand)' by Sonny J.
Sonny J is a man of mystery. Preferring to keep his identity secret, we've never seen his face but we do know that he's from Whitstable and makes good music! You might have heard his Michael Jackson-esque Can't Stop Moving last year, but Handsfree was the real standout track from the album sampler we received last year.
Sampling an old soul track by Donna Hightower, it's got a really retro and summery feel to it. It reminds us of the Kill Bill soundtrack and in particular the vibe of Nancy Sinatra's 'Bang Bang'.
'Handsfree (If You Hold My Hand) is out on 9 June and the album 'Disastro' will follow a week later
Watch the video and let us know what you think"

Sonny J Handsfree Is Record Of The Day!

"Sonny J's next single from forthcoming album Disastro mixes Northern Soul and Country and comes up with a great pop song. This unpredictable and hugely fun track is backed by a brilliant video too. It's also smart use of a great sample, lifted from 1950's Decca and RPM artist Donna Hightower's If You Hold My Hand. It entered the TV airplay charts this week with support from The Box, Smash Hits and The Hits amongst others. Radio support has come from both Pete Tong and Annie Mac's shows on Radio 1, 6 Music made it record of the week last week and a live session for XFM is also lined up. A recent Popjustice song of the day, we think this sounds like a summer hit waiting to happen and deserves wider radio support." Click here for the full feature!

Alex Gaudino Sun Exclusive!

Alex Gaudino's "Watch Out" video debuts exclusively on The Sun Online and gets a mention in today's paper!

WORLD EXCLUSIVE: VIDEO featuring sexy athletic women will cheer up our fans!

BRITISH football fans finally have something to look forward to this summer.
With the national teams so noticeably absent from Euro 2008, this scorching music video featuring a bunch of athletic women footballers kitted out and ready for action is a sure-fire winner.

Mastermined by ALEX GAUDINO, the man behind No.4 smash hit Destination Calabria, Watch Out looks set to be one of the club anthems of the year.

I doubt it's going to be sung from the stands, but the video's catchy beats and scantily clad girls will certainly leave you dribbling

It's just a shame they don't swap shirts at the end.

Watch Out is available to download from June 2.

Sonny J Popjustice Homepage Feature

"Sonny J's New Video Is Very Good Indeed"

"We've been big fans of Sonny J's 'Handsfree (If You Hold My Hand)' since early copies of the album arrived last year, but it's one of those songs that seems to get better every time we hear it.

One of the factors boosting the song's power over the last week is the brilliant video which features a lady with bandages on her eyes and mysterious powers causing havoc in a trailer park, and an excellent choreographed dance bit.

We suppose the video is what you'd get if you went to a director and said, "hello - can you do me a cross between 'Heroes' and 'Thriller' for about twenty grand? Cheers".

Archangel "Twisted Little Genius Of A Band" The Beat Surrender

Great review for "Not The Man You Think I Am" on The Beat Surrender;

"Not The Man You Think I Am is a strange little ditty, one that gets under your skin instantly with it’s tale of doomed love being built around the catchiest piano sound this side of Ben Folds, marvellous Underground. It’s one of those songs that could come back to haunt me in later months and years when they decide to go all mainstream on us.

I hope that doesn’t happen though, because they do have a pop element to them already the harmonies are Beach Boys esque and you could see this getting airplay, the fact that they are supporting The Shortwave Set at The Soho Revue Bar on 15th April makes me think that they could be a twisted little genius of a band that are well worth looking out for!"

Sonny J Popjustice Song Of The Day!

Sonny J's new single "Handsfree (If You Hold My Hand)" is Popjustice's Song Of The Day today!

"We first featured this as Song Of The Day last December. Here is what we wrote then:

"Sonny J's single 'Can't Stop Moving' was, for one reason or another, not the enormous hit single such music publications as the popular website Popjustice were hoping it would be.

However, the Sonny J single was not a one off – there is an entire Sonny J album on the way and it is a little bit amazing.

Here is one such little bit of amazingness from it. It would seem that Sonny J are applying an 'if it isn’t broke don't fix it' policy to their music, would it not."

How right we were."

James On BBC Music Homepage

"Reforming in 2007 to play a reunion tour that sold out in 45 minutes, James are back in the frame with their 10th studio album Hey Ma. Key players in the ‘Madchester’ scene of the early 90s, they scored hits ‘Sit Down’, and ‘She’s A Star’ before eventually disbanding in 2001. Anthemic and wonderful as ever."
