This week on my tape-player, I am mostly listening to The Breeders "The Last Splash" album: you know, the one with "Cannonball" on it?

You know what? I know that The Pixies are the band that will be remembered in history as "critically acclaimed" and "influential" and Black Francis/Frank Black is the one who gets all the respect, but to be honest, I prefer this album to any Pixies/Black ones.

This week on my car tape-player, I have been listening, repeatedly, to The Church album "Priest = Aura", which may be my favourite of theirs.

This evening I have had some dear friends over for a meal and drinks, and we have listened to these albums:

Trans-Global Underground - "Dream of A Thousand Nations"

Stereo MCs - "Connected"

Kirsty MacColl - "The Best Of..."

Gibby Haynes & His Problem - eponymously titled debut album

Yo La Tengo - "I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass"

Lamb - "What Sound?"

Morrissey - "The Best Of Morrissey"

Sons & Daughters - "The Repulsion Box"

Most likely, out of the 5k CDs, combined w/the 2k cassettes lying next to ,hmm, 3k LPs, alongside the 200 8 tracks, joined with over 50 hours of Teac reel-2-reel . . . and yes, I'm a caveman . . . only a caveman would have Teac reel-2-reel.

But the accoustics in a cave are wonderful!

It's the hand-cranked generator that wears my arm out. Plus the steady drip from the stalactites shocks me from time to time . . .
