    waded through that Bill Brewster blue-eyed funk rock chart in Quietus the other day - good to see Sopwith Camel given some props - but no idea how I've managed to miss this Lennon track all these years.

    zapped out a bagged a cheapie at Real Groovy.

    also, just to toss a track into the mix, found this yesterday – it’s a live (and better) take on a track from an album of African bands recorded by Damon Albarn, Brian Eno and Nick Zinner from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. this was Zinner’s project…he’s the palangi standing at the back.

    there’s a co-joined doco coming out an’ all

    can I ask why you're selling them? I don't play my Fall in a Hole much (OK, never) but I kinda like knowing it's there.

    yeah, but the poms seem to have developed an odd system where you form an orderly queue to get to a counter where you then ask for what ever you're after (not even knowing whether or not they've got it in the first place) which is possibly more seemly than the rush that occurs at Southbound, but it's far more long winded.
    sadly I've got a funeral to go to, but after a quick morning hit and run I'm hoping to make Lazza at Real Groovy, that man's voice can still strip paint off walls.
    and don't nobody get between me and the Lord Sitar reissue, I'm sanding my elbows and knees as I type. also finding myself oddly tempted by the Sound, Banshees and such, bands I haven't really listened to in decades. hmmm.

    tbh, and I suspect I'm going to regret this, I'm still trying to figure this one out ''Imagining the classical mind is so hard precisely because it was a pre-Christian one.''

    were those pre-christians a bit savagey and dim? if only they'd written some books or something. and if only we knew of just one culture, somewhere, that has never been christian for a bit of compare and contrast. but I guess we'll never know. pity really.
