My mind boggles - someone on this continent knows Five Thirty. Has their album Bed. And, by the looks of things, has had it since it came out nearly twenty years ago. I found it at a second-hand store today and kept staring at it. And staring at it. No, it couldn't possibly be, but it WAS.

Someone else - maybe the same person - also had Mansun's Attack of the Grey Lantern. Similarly mind-boggling and my housemate had to perform a minor Heimlich on me when I nearly choked on seeing it.

I also got meself Head Music by Suede.

Whoa. Why would people give this away?

You just got that? Thing came out in '99. It was probably given away because Suede's material was observed as getting weak by then. First two albums and their b-sides were considered top-notch. Once Coming Up came out, they ran outta steam. However, I have a soft spot for Head Music. It's the college drama music I used to listen to without actually going to college; the b-sides for that album were crappy, but I love every one of them - "Leaving," "Seascape," and even "Crackhead"! :beatnik:

My Christmas present from Mrs Fitter was a £30 voucher to spend in my favourite independent record shop Jumbo Records. Yesterday afternoon, I finally got round to spending it on these 5 albums:

"The Eternal" - Sonic Youth

"Come On Die Young" - Mogwai

"Horehound" - The Dead Weather

"In The Court Of The Wrestling Let's" - Let's Wrestle

"El Rey" - The Wedding Present

The Mogwai album is immense, majestic and thrlling.

The Sonic Youth one sounds like it's going to be a winner.

The Let's Wrestle one is a speculative shot in the dark; a few months ago I read a review, appreciated the song titles, and the punning album title, it stuck in my mind. But I hadn't heard anything by them until I played it this morning. Reminiscent of mid 80s UK indie- frayed at the edges, lo-fi production values- but catchy songs with a penchant for amusingly self-pitying, "loser in love" scenarios.

The Wedding Present one is quitwe recent - 2008 - and was engineered by Steve Albini.

The Dead Weather one I haven't listened to yet, but I expect it to be pretty good.

I think the bill came to £36 in total, so I made up the difference with the change in my pocket.But I think I did Ok there.
