    i would like to reiterate that FUCKED UP have a ton of seven inches before the two lps that are waaay better. if you guys are getting into them, i highly suggest to check out that stuff! especially "litany" and the split with HAYMAKER. quality stuff. also their friends in the BAYONETTES and SEX/VID are super great.

    Closure in Moscow.
    Though last i saw them, their mics were screwed up, which was unfortunate. But the boys are nice, and supportive of post-gig tea parties.
    Appropriate for 3am. By turns lulling, and invigorating. hm.

    went to see nin inch nails on wednesday so have been trying to regain that truly brilliant experince by overdosing on all things nin.
    although it doesn't actually time travel me back to that magical moment when 'pinion' melted into 'wish', it's all good.

    never thought about it before, but that exact moment is one of the turning points when i went from what i would consider a stupid kid who wasnt really a music fan to starting down the road to total geekery that i am on now...good call!

    Listening to a LOT of 80s punk, after reading Derf's great graphic novel, Punk Rock & Trailer Parks.

    Dead Memories - Slipknot
    Nightswimming - REM
    The Winner Takes It All - Abba
    Cracked Actor - David Bowie

    Any other Patton fans heard the album She by Maldoror? Bloody hell.

    After stemming the blood flow from my ears caused by Gelsomina, a passing bout of nostalgia led me to download van the man's Astral Weeks - £4.74 from iToons. Billy bargain. And Madame George made me cry on the bus home.

    @prof s - good choice! it took a lot of convincing for me even to listen to astral weeks, because whenever you see van morrison on telly he is uniformly rubbish. i was halfway through side 2 (of a cassette someone leant to (forced on) me) before it suddenly hit me "wow, this rules" (it was the nineties), and played it through from the start again. One of the few albums I can put on and just sit listening to, without having to read a book or do housework or something else to occupy my hands/brain.

    is it lent to, leant to or lended to? I say leant, but written down it looks wrong.

    eDave - there's also his live in Belfast double album that I remember as magnificent; a mate (now dead) held it up as the greatest live album ever.
