I’ve been conducting a bit of an internet silence lately, and this is the one piece of information that Facebook greeted me with this morning.And there’s me thinking I’ve been re-hashing the same review for the last year and a half… Colour me chuffed!You can read my words of wisdom (aka jibberings of excitement) and listen to both tracks from the record here:Hessian/Primitive Man - The Abyss Stares Back #2

Do you video/photograph live concerts on your phone/compact camera?
Yes?
Do us all a favour and stop going to shows.
You are amongst the worst kind of people.

One or two photos here and there is fine, even I do that from time to time (if my phone wasn’t the biggest bag of wank), but get that flashing light out of the eye-line/view of the room full of people standing directly behind you ASAP.

August Record A Day: Week Two


I’m undecided if I’m running out of steam with this challenge or not… I definitely won’t be writing another month’s that’s for sure.


Check out my profile (chatping) for the rest/nice things I take shitty pictures of.

MUSIC CHALLENGE: Album you own on multiple formats

Some of you have seen/participated in the ‘record a day’ challenges on instagram, and today’s challenge is: Album you own on multiple formats.

Call me a nark or whatever, but this challenge really does interest me to the core. It’s like getting a real peek into someone’s collecting habit/taste in music.

SO, any one release (or multiple, you may be obsessed with a few things) you own on cassette tape, vinyl, cd (preferably not a burn/copy), live dvd, vhs, (paid for) digital download, mini disc, betamax, Jefferson phonograph- whatever it may be! Doesn’t matter if you bought it second hand, given it as a birthday present or even bought with an iTunes giftcard. Some of you may have A LOT, so list off a top 5 or top 10 if it makes things easier :)

There is only ONE RULE: It has to have been paid for (digital from cd/free download cards only counts if you have 2+ formats already)

Reply, reblog, message, fanmail- just feed my inner nerdy-nosey-parker!

Here’s an example:

What’s yours?

August Record A Day: Week One

Things you should look out for this month: multiple repeats and new challenges I have to admit I’m rather chuffed with. I’m going to attempt to write up a list for September, but I’ll effectively be writing it around whatever I have left to post, so it’ll be bizarre, potentially eclectic and probably repetitive.

The Legacy | ‘We Gave It Everything…’ | 1st press | Green w/ black splatter | /50 | Dead And Gone Records | 2004

Took a punt on this because I loved their LP years back, and I can’t resist a 10” (especially for £4)
