They've rebadged it, you fool

Just two months after I hailed the eternal quotability of the Demo Dumper review in Nightshift, the Demos section is no more. But fear not - it's simply been renamed as Tracks, to reflect the fact that the definition and status of a demo has been a grey area for some time. Demo Of The Month has become Cat's Whiskers, while Demo Dumper has become Dog's Arse. The evisceration of Television Villain's submission proves that, in reality, nothing has really changed - thankfully.

The July issue's cover stars are MSRY, metalcore fiends who are new to me but appear to be taking Oxford by the scruff of the neck, while there's also a four-page review of the Common People bash, which featured Ride, Sparks, Maximo Park and the Jacksons among others.
