It's a funny one. A friend stayed over for a while and bought me a new album by Patti Smith - Banga, thinking that's the kind of thing I'd be into. I'd never fork out on a new Patti Smith record, I wouldn't even give it a spin. And yet, it's mostly great.

I guess my point is that sometimes when your mad aunty buys you a tape she might be on to the good stuff that you think you're too cool for. I've a few of those anyway.

No one has bought me a record since my sister got me a bootleg tape of Brothers in Arms. I still think she just grabbed the first thing she saw as they were shutting the shop on Xmas eve.

I guess people don't buy music as presents as much anymore as its not seen as a tangible medium - a download would be a fairly shite present to be fair.

I usually buy my sister a Cd or two for Xmas. She likes her music but is not a nerd about it so I try and buy her something she might not be familiar with but that I think she might like. Bought her a Lucinda Williams album last year and now she's a big fan and we are going to see her together in Vicar Street in January. Which is cool.

the one year we did kris kindle in our office (and it was only one year -2009 or 2010) with a €5 limit, a person got me a billie holliday album.

i still listen to it occassionally :)

usually though, i don't get unasked for stuff as christmas presents and i wouldn't like to get it for other people. it can be tough. in our house, we do lists for each other to get because after 30 years of coexisting together, we can't be bothered to try to know anything about anyone else
