On Friday, I chanced upon a vinyl LP by The Shamen entitled "Strange Day Dreams"; originally released in 1988, it's a collection of their early material from when they were a psychedelic indie-rock band,i.e. before they discovered and incorporated hip-hop beats, acid-house, rave stylings, etc. A cracking bargain for the paltry sum of £1.

Today, I finally managed to spend the £10 Jumbo Records voucher given to me by my work colleague as a gesture of gratitude, when I had given her American husband a lift up from London to Leeds about a month ago. (After visiting his folks in the States, he had been stranded there an extra week due to the Icelandic volcano eruption, so arrived back in London a week later than originally planned, with no ticket back to Leeds.)

The albums I bought in Jumbo were:

"Holiday" - The Magnetic Fields A bit of a shot in the dark: I really like The Magnetic Fields "69 Love Songs", but it is a triple album, so I don't know whether another Magnetic Fields album is what I really need. Listened to quite a bit of it on my way back to work. Sounds quite nice. Kind of like what would happen if Scott Walker got together with The Jesus And Mary Chain with the intention of making camp but classy synth-pop.

"Kaleidoscope" - Siouxsie & The Banshees This one of my favourite Banshees albums; I've had it for donkey's years on vinyl, but it'll be nice to finally have it on CD, so I can listen to it whenever I like.

But I'd have to buy the blank cds, the cd cases, special paper for the cover and labels, colour ink for the cover and labels, a large external hard-drive (500GB or more), not to mention if my computer or hard-drive crashes, then I'd be f***ed. I drop $300 on a set of cds, cassettes, or lps, and I'm done :beatnik:
