    I twaddled off on my annual junk shop circuit thru Thames, Te Aroha, Morrinsville and Huntly this week and reaped a fine bounty.

    most lucrative – not that I sell – was a minty copy of the Underdogs (best known for Sitting in the Rain) album Wasting Our Time.

    check out this breakz, fuzz and wah wah combo

    but also delighted to get equally minty 7s of Johnny Devlin’s Straight Skirt and the Deuce’s Hone Heke – I’d pitch them both to Lawrence Arabia for tomorrow night. Anyone who hasn’t caught one of these shows at Golden Dawn has missed out.

    as for managing my music, I find some hefty shelving units and ample floor space does the job most effectively.

    also - and at the same time acknowledging it as not so much a word as an enthusiastically indulged sport - 'confirmation bias.'

    I'll toss 'pile on' into the kitty.

    Hammer horrors have nothing on the massed pitchforks and torches you get online.

    I was there last week and can report that a great time was had. The Zombies were my highlight - cool wiggy keys - but they also banged out Turtles Happy Together, Floyd's Arnold Lane, Flying Burrito Bros, Beatles and stuff and things.
    it was jammed inside, so get there early and don't expect to be able to move.
    I'd be there tomorrow but prior engagement etc and so on.

    also very stink news about McLagan.

    also, and I'm probably the last to catch on, I hadn't connected that track to Car Crash Set before. never been much for focusing on lyrics to be honest.

    well if it helps I'm still counting down to the pint I've been hankering for - transcribing all day, bleeding tedious.

    but yeah, that track would make a great 7. maybe with the Normal on t'other side.
