Competition to win Jasmine Minks tickets!

Today we're very excited to be giving away five pairs of tickets to see legendary 80s' indiepop heroes The Jasmine Minks on Saturday July 23 - their first live gig in London for ten years.

Formed in London, The Jasmine Minks were initially a trio centred around singer Jim Shepherd. After sending a demo tape to Melody Maker, the band were recruited by Alan McGee to record for his fledgling record label (CLUE!), with their self-titled debut album being released in 1985, before recording their only Peel session in 1986. Further albums Another Age (1988) and Scratch the Surface (1989) drew critical acclaim before the band split. They reunited in 2000, releasing the album Veritas, before the band signed to McGee's Poptones label for the release of Popartglory (2001). In 2010 a four-track EP, "Poppy White", was also released on the Oatcake Records label.

The gig, which will be held at the Borderline in Charing Cross, also features the Edinburgh School for the Deaf and the Electric Sugar Children.

Doors open at 7pm with the first band on at 8 15pm and a scheduled finish at 10.30 pm.

All you have to do is answer this simple question: The Jasmine Minks' best-selling album 'Another Age' is due to be re-issued by Joe Foster's Poppydisc record label. On what label was the album first issued?

Please send your answer, along with your name and contact details, to Sandy at sandyjaf@hotmail.com by 5pm on Friday July 22. Good luck!
