    Just finished Grant & I by Robert Forster so been re-listening to The Go-Betweens:
    Send Me a Lullaby
    Before Hollywood
    Spring Hill Fair
    16 Lovers Lane
    Oceans Apart

    Really were cut short by McLennan's death, Oceans Apart is probably their best album.

    Laura Cannell - Simultaneous Flight Movement absolutely bloody great

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    EDIT:
    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.

    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.

    The Wise Ol'Man EP is worth getting hold of, it's definitely better than the last couple of albums.
