The second batch of pick-ups from yesterday. Three of these are actually “replacement” copies. * I picked up a US pressing of The Killing Moon a few months back but I still wanted a UK pressing since most of my #EchoAndTheBunnymen collection are UK presses.
* I had an older great quality pressing of the Dummy so I never bothered with the 20th anniversary reissue from a few years back. But I found a copy of the latter for under $20 so I grabbed it. #Portishead
* #SacredBones reissued #TheMen record on purple vinyl last year. I passed on it initially because I didn’t want to fork over another $20 for it. But the shop had copies for half that so I bit. * I’m not a big #LeonardCohen fan but I really do like his more well-known songs so this best of is all I need. I was actually surprised at how great shape the cover and record are in.

In addition to the Shame record, I also picked up a handful of used records. This is the first batch. * Filled a few holes in my #NedsAtomicDustbin collection. I had all of the early singles. But never thought to any of the Are You Normal singles. Nice to find these two yesterday.
* I always meant to check out early stuff from #TheSoupDragons. The stuff before they jumped on the Baggy bandwagon. I’m glad I did because I really love this EP. I’m definitely going to be seeking out their early singles now.
* I’ve technically completed my #XTC album collection. At least the ones I’ve set out to get - Basically their 70s and 80s albums. Skylarking was the last one I needed and I was waiting to find a copy for under a tenner.

Officially my first new album of 2018. There’s nothing like the excitement of hearing a new band. For some strange reason, this band, Shame, kept coming up a bunch of times this week. BBC Radio 6 Music were promoting their live session on Tuesday. Then I heard some other DJs raving on about them. At this point, I still hadn’t heard their music. Then yesterday morning, I got the #DeadOceans email newsletter about their new releases and saw that their debut album, #SongsOfPraise, had come out today. (Which makes sense that all of hype was happening during the week...) Needless to say, all of this piqued my interest. When I got into work, I finally took some time and watched a video on YouTube.  The pictures I’d seen of the band made me expect something twee or jangly indie rock. Much to my surprise, it was nothing like that. It was relatively aggressive and yet melodic post-punk. Not that it was anything terribly new or original, but it was nice to hear some new music that wasn’t more rehashed ‪White Stripes‬/Black Keys overdone garage rock or some retro-disco/synth-wave. It had also been a while since a new non-pop punk band from the UK caught my attention. To me, it sounded like ‪Shaun Ryder‬ fronting a less lo-fi Viet Cong. But there were obviously traces of Gang Of Four, Wire and The Fall in the music as well.

I called up Amoeba immediately and had them put the record on hold for me. I waited the entire work day (not to mention a post-work happy hour) to quickly drive to Amoeba and buy the record. I was finally able to bring it home and listen to the album in full. Upon my first listen, it was pretty much everything I expected. Angsty and shouty vocals with angular musical backing. There are some vocal bits that kind of come across as goth-y but nothing that was off-putting. Overall, I was not disappointed. This is something that I’m going to spinning for a while.
Their live shows look like they’re pretty fun and chaotic. Coincidentally, they’re playing what I believe is their first show in L.A. on Presidents’ Day weekend. Needless to say, I got a ticket for it.
Oh yeah, and I’ve already ordered the Rough Trade exclusive pink vinyl variant (/700). Duh.

I’m not a big D.R.I. fan, but this album brings fond memories of my first band. It was a Christian punk band. No, I wasn’t a Christian. But my friends needed a drummer and I really wanted to be in a band. So we were a Christian band and we covered DRI. Oh yeah, the lead singer wasn’t Christian either. Anyway, we covered “Suit and Tie Guy” off this album and it was always fun playing it. I think this band lasted about 6 months. If that. LOL

Super late to the party with these guys. I remember seeing their earlier records but nothing that sparked any interest. This latest album came out last year and there was something about the cover that I found intriguing. I found a used copy of it yesterday and bit. Upon the first listen, I was duly impressed. It kind of reminds me of Diarrhea Planet but with less hair metal inclinations. I might have to delve deeper into their back catalogue now.

When I ordered the Mansun EP, I ordered these #SenselessThings singles as well. They were the last ones I was missing to complete my 7”s collection. #rekkids #records #vinyl #vinylcollection #vinyligclub #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #vinylcollective #clubrpm #igvinylclub #coloredvinyl #deadcuts #deadcutsband #jamiehewlett
