  1. Coderholic’s django-cities at master - GitHub

    Models, with data from GeoNames, for countries, regions, cities and districts, for Django. Haven’t used it yet, but looks very useful.

  2. Moon Wiring Club – The Jayston Mix | Pontone

    Another free mix, this time devoted to actor Michael Jayston. (If I could find Moon Wiring Club’s album to download and pay for anywhere, I would…)

  3. The Wire: The ASDA mix - a Moon Wiring Club exclusive

    Fun, free mix of 1970sish British TV music type hauntology malarkey.

    Some interesting-sounding music here, although obscurity and lack of bloody links makes it a bit annoying to listen and/or buy.
