Max Romeo - War Ina Babylon
Plaid - Double Figure
Just finished Grant & I by Robert Forster so been re-listening to The Go-Betweens:
Send Me a Lullaby
Spring Hill Fair
16 Lovers Lane
Really were cut short by McLennan's death, Oceans Apart is probably their best album.
Orbital - Orbital
Laura Cannell - Simultaneous Flight Movement absolutely bloody great
Xylouris White - Black Peak
Fugazi - Instrument Soundtrack
The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
It must've been at least two years since I last listened to the latter, but a leave of absence means it still stands up very well, despite the fawning it often gets.
Parliament - Mothership Connection
Stiff Little Fingers - Inflammable Material
Mugstar - Magnetic Seasons absolutely fantastic.
Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx pt. 2
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree
Psychic TV - Force the Hand of Chance
Suicide - A Way of Life
Steve Mason - Meet the Humans
This will be near the top of my end of year list. I love the calmness of his voice, and he's always constructed brilliant pop arrangements since his Beta Band days.
Nick And The Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree
Datach'i - System
Sisters of mercy - A slight case of overbombing.
The last few days, I've been listening to nothing but bootlegs. There are so many downloads of studio outtakes and soundboard live recordings about. The sound quality is usually significantly better than the official studio albums too. The recordings are all flac, of course, no mp3 rubbish. Favourites include:
P J Harvey - Lick My Legs (Live In Paris 2004)
Captain Beefheart - Spotlight Kid Sessions 1971
Neil Young - Various live stuff from 1976, 1978 and 1991
13th Floor Elevators - Paradise Found (1966 - 68 studio)
Portishead - Various live recordings
The sound of madness - Shinedown
Hüsker Dü - Zen Arcade
Working my way through the Fall back catalogue, today
Hex Enduction Hour
Room To Live
Warpaint - The fool
Warpaint - Warpaint
Steve Hauschildt - Strands
Wrekmeister Harmonies - Then it all came down
What do reckon of the new one? While I respect them for trying something different have to say I don't think it's the same quality as these two.
The Fall - Perverted by Language
The Fall - The Wonderful and Frightening World of the Fall
The Fall - This Nation's Saving Grace
tbh honest I haven't heard it yet, I borrowed these two from the library, just to see what they were like. So far, I find those two records cracking. I'll purchase the latest one and let you know.
All hell breaks loose - Black star riders.
Do you have them all? They're by far the most frequent occurrence in my record collection, but I think I'm still missing twelve of their studio albums.
Caribou - Swim
I, ahem, obtained a copy of all the studio albums up to Reformation Post-TLC a few years back and I've bought ever album since them.
The Fall - Bend Sinister
I've found quite a few very cheap in second hand and charity shops, which surprised me a little, as I thought Fall fans would keep them until they died. I bought ..Saving Grace to try them out when I was about 18, circa 2000 or so, and then didn't go back to them until about six years ago. Ever since I've been gradually building them up, keeping them in strict chronological order.
2016 is looking like one of those odd years where there is no new Fall album, although there was a 34 minute EP which I must confess I haven't got.
psychic tv - peak hour
much better than I remember.
Interpol - Antics
Moody. But immaculately so.
The Wise Ol'Man EP is worth getting hold of, it's definitely better than the last couple of albums.
