Breeders finally take the top spot from Mogwai to bag Kim Deal her first number one on this chart in over twenty years: lots of other climbers within the Top Ten, not least Eno & Shields's magnum opus (#5, +15). The week's best performance, however, is that of the curious Mr Ben & The Bens (#21, +17), with Other Creatures (#11, +10), Django Django (#17, +14) and Aldous Harding (#22, +11) all breaking that ten-place barrier. What would appear to be the final release from Kendal's Wild Beasts is the week's highest new entry (#19), with six other new tunes making the cut. Those 'birthday' stats:

With the Breeders staving off all others at the top, the biggest climb goes to London electronic duo Mount Kimbie (#23, +17), with decent moves also recorded for Amp Fiddler (#20, +13), Grizzly Bear (#22, +13), Princess Nokia (#26, +12) and MGMT (#29, +10). Balloons Kill Babies (great band, awful name) follow their recent number one with the week's highest new entry (#18). So it goes...

Yes, it's a bit of a cracker - shades of Sonic Youth, etc. Been out a while, in fact.

Good to see the main man still cutting it, yes - I was very much a fan of The Only Ones back in the day.
