Wasted, personally, reminds me of Pieces of a Dream, which is my fav South track from Adventures...
Just received word from Wayne over at Live Between the Lines

Hello South fans! While the band is taking a holiday break before heading back into the studio (rumour has it they will be releasing more material this year), they are offering fans what may very well end up being a regular thing - Podcasts! Friend of the band, Ascher Nathan, has put together a podcast with the boys and it is now offered up on the official site, South.uk.net.
There will soon be the option to subscribe to new 'casts.
You'll see a new tab on the site's menu - PODCAST - click there and enjoy :)
Hello there South fans! I've not been too good with recent South news, but I will say I've heard some great first hand accounts of the recent show in Tokyo, and the guys have a few more shows in the London area before taking some time off for the Holidays.
From the official sources itself comes the news that South will be on BBC Radio 2 this Friday, December 9th on Dermot O'Leary's show from 5pm. UK listeners can tune in to 88-91FM, or you can listen live online here :http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/mainframe.shtml?http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio2.shtml
"Fans of South should mark down October 10 on their calendars. On that day the band will be releasing a limited edition DVD/CD package that will contain live concert footage from their recent tour with Margot & The Nuclear So And So's. The DVD will also have info on behind the scenes, three acoustic tunes from Virgin Digital Radio, an iTunes session, music videos and a whole slew of other goodies. The CD portion also has two brand new songs, "Something & Nothing" and "Autumn Morning."
Below are the track listings and a sample of the Peter Hook approved "Bizarre Love Triangle," which will be on the DVD and features both bands playing together. When people asked Hooky what he thought of the cover he stated, "Sounds like an electronic Stockholm Monsters...interesting! But it's no wonder they're called South 'cause they're a bunch of Jessie's for keeping the bass off!" Not too shabby considering this guy typically doesn't like much."
