TIPSHEET (Issue #351)

Record of the Week
Another Lover by White Town (Bzangy Groink)

Yes, it’s a new track from Your Woman man Jyoti, whose worldwide success The Tip Sheet proudly played a part in by championing him when unsigned, back in 1996.
Actually this isn’t that new a track – it was one of those rejected by EMI when they dropped him after just one album with the label. Fools. Pop doesn’t often get this good, and Jyoti is now happily putting this and an accompanying LP out on his own bizarrely-named label in the UK (marketed and distributed by Voiceprint, home to other awkward mavericks such as Mark E Smith and Rachel Stamp), and through little indie Parasol in the States.
He feels, not without reason, that he needs another major label deal like he needs a hole in the head, but that shouldn’t rule out lots of media support for his potential second worldwide smash.
