Second Hand Haul

September 17, 2013

Have been given some second hand records from a work colleague. Some pretty good stuff in here. Taking a journey back to late 80’s/early 90’s indie pop. It’s nice to have The Queen Is Dead on vinyl too.

May 2012.

I’ve been away for the past week at Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona. As well as spending copious amounts of money and San Miguel and tapas, I bought myself a vinyl treat in the form of Pink Flag by Wire: an album I’ve loved for years I though it was necessary to finally own it on my favorite format around.

Before I went away, I placed on order with the brilliant Norman Records which was waiting for me when I got home. It got Cian Nugents new 7″, the new Hookworms/Kogumaza split 7″ and the new LP from Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland (Hype Williams). They’ve managed to cheer me up slightly, but I still wish I was in Barcelona.

Vinyl Purchases 5-12-2011

My vinyl purchases for this week: Minutemen – The Punch Line and The Fall – Hey! Luciani.

Bought from Vinyl Exchange in Manchester. They will look fine among my ever expanding collection. If you’ve never listened to The Punch Line before, do it! It’s punk at is best! 18 songs in 15 minutes. Enough said.
