    yeah, but the big stuff is always the limited releases, they have the resale value. I'd be happier having them drip fed as usual, there's something unseemly in having a scrum form.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Record Store Day,

    while the day is fun and all I'm getting a bit leary on the whole RSD thing. if you haven't read the letter posted on the Kudos site, I recommend it...

    http://www.kudosdistribution.co.uk/record-store-day-2014-frustration/

    I track Kudos daily and the overload they refer to has meant they haven't stocked new vinyl in quite some time which is arse. Jazzman has reported similar.

    and having hoped to get a copy of the Pink Floyd, See Emily Play 7'' last year I was a little aggrieved to see it stuck up on auction sites almost immediately afterward for stupid money. I doubt the intention was ever to provide a new income source to scalper types.

    but, if this is the best way to get the Sub Reps and Scavs reissued, then sweet. as long as I get one.

    and Bob, you're saying Clinton's collection has been shipped north? wonder why they didn't head to Slowboat? anyway I was at journo school with Jason and he was a lovely bloke. even got to have a rummage through his stuff - he had broad tastes - so I'll be keen to have a look.

  • Feed: My Life in Curry,

    growing up in Mangere in the 70s we had one couple over the back fence - outwardly Pomgolian, but she was born and raised in India and he'd been a soldier stationed there - who used to pass facemelting curries over on a regular basis. my dad would pretty much leave the house for the duration, salt and (white) pepper was the beginning and end of his flavour palette.
    then over the right fence was a Fijian-Indian family who used to host regular celebrations and invite the whole neighbourhood over. got to enjoy Indian style sweets for the first time as well.
    was all very mouthpopping for a wee nipper, and it took me a long while to appreciate them. I'm a horrendous sweater when it comes to chilli which, while considered a spectator sport by some, is never a look I particularly enjoy.

    for the love of Helen, I have nothing but pity if you can't feel the epic yacht rockiness of LRB's Night Owl…I mean come on, feel the width.

    right, you're on. I shall not rest, slumber, blink, utter a spoken pause or consider the lillies till I find an Air Supply badger-baiting scorchio.

    make yourself comfy but, I may be some time...

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Cinema 'Tron,

    felt lucky at lunchtime and managed a couple of longtime wants.

    been after a cheap version of this for yonks and snared a lovely US pressing. I am (a funky) Woman...

    and this erm, barking mad b-side. never thought I'd find it here and some would say I'd be better off if I hadn't...

    then, for shits and giggles, this rather took my fancy. they don't make 'em like before they even used to...

    and good to see Jay Clarkson is still playing out, always dug her stuff at the Windsor - and the drummer's spangly blue kit, his name eludes me for the moment.
