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.
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...
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.
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.
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'...
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...
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...
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...
Go to Bradford. Even the bus is quite close. Train is minutes. There's an evocative old mill area in Bradford which is far more authentic than York's "fake" Viking wall.
You won't find any bookstores.
Both have their draws for a few hours.
I did my MA there, and soon grew to despise the homogeneous, middle class nature of it. So, I hold a special bias.
If you go, make sure you hit all the secondhand/charity bookstores. I got some great stuff cheap in my time there.
I ended my days there working 50/60 hours a week as a caregiver...
He did play with Vile - The War On Drugs? I've never listened to them, but my friend stated, "it's hard to believe two quality musicians could be in a band so shit."
Way Out Weather is good for sure. The title track is a rolling, moiling holy beauty. I think he's getting away from the droney...
I am really awful at promoting this. This one is almost from two weeks ago...
Alas, despite recent suspicions, the show features zero % Steely Dan.
The eh, previous one to this playlist:
'A Petroglyphic Massacre' - Talibam!
'Kita' - TRRMA
'Lash' - John Butcher & Rhodri Davies
'Feedback 66' -...
