    Thread for upcoming reissues of interest Must confess to not having a clue who Marion Brown is but this album has been popping up at me on ig, FB and other places for a few weeks now. There he is on the front with Archie Shepp. Read a great Invisible Jukebox...

    DVD bargains

    Arrow are having an impressive Easter sale until April 24th. You just have to sign up with them. Some cracking Blu-ray titles reduced to £7.50 - heaps of Fassbinder, The Addiction, some 70s Altman...a load of trash too. Trash in the categorical sense that is. Postage is cheap as chips too.

    2019 albums worth a listen.....

    Landings was the big one (in terms of media response)...but Verses of Birds might be the one to go for first. It's all of a piece of you ask me. His sound doesn't vary terribly across his ouevre. Crow Autumn by A Broken Consort is more of the same "modern classical" all-acoustic austerity and...

    RSD 2019 - LIST

    Same thing happened again. RSD is only a cod. I bought Eric Dolphy Stockholm Sessions the day before RSD. Fuck RSD. Although if you go on Residents FB page, people are putting up available copies, but think you need to be in the States to avail.

    People Who Died

    Extremely bummed to hear about this. One of my absolute favourites. Incredible zest and charisma in In the Soup amongst other things...

    Thread for upcoming reissues of interest This is barely out two weeks and the vinyl has already sold out. Damn. Gilbert and Lewis of Wire. Jammed out picking up He Said, She Said 12" in Road Records yonks ago.

    Keiji Haino

    I just saw Don Bolles from the Germs and Ariel Pink had him up in his FB story. No context given. Haino just surfaces anywhere and everywhere like an impregnable fog adorned in wraparounds.

    2019 albums worth a listen.....

    Fucking sweet one, Shitepipe. Think I will be getting the whole discography for that price! The new one from Richard Youngs came out in January, although he probably already has another one out by now. Gave it a quick listen last night. Bit of an early Palace Music feeling to it. Youngs'...

    For free-jazzers... This just dropped [apologies, not upcoming...]

    People Who Died

    Sad to hear about Woody. Did a FAS course with him yonks ago in Jervis St. 2005, I think. Some priceless antics out of him - always good for something unpredictable. You couldn't make him up. I can't remember if he could use a computer, but he was always moving, like some digitalised form. I...

    Nialler9 Hates Trad People

    Blog looks woeful. Just playing into the fashion, syncing up with what the fashion is already producing - evermore ephemerality and futile hubris. Music already has that built in contextually, so why not augment it even more by writing about it on an asinine blog! The writing is weak, lacks any...

    Yep. Most comfortable bar scene there. People are aware that, yeah... I don't know, it's just a refreshingly friendly and horny city.

    Steve Gunn

    It's not an intuitive place. One good gallery in the city centre. But the centre is very corporate. Difficult to figure it out, but if you're going to a gig, some good spots. Wharf Chambers...I think there's a boycott on that place at the minute. Some dubious carry-on with non-P.C issues...
