Ok, so I lurk, previously on C+ and now here. Here's mine. Willy Mason: "If the going gets rough"
Quantic Soul Orchestra: Pushin On
I've just ordered Bright Eyes' "I'm wide awake it's morning", Gogol Bordello's "Gypsy punk underdogs world strike" (or something) and the White Stripes' "Icky Thump" from Amazon. The last thing I bought was Tapes n Tapes "The Loon", I think.
I collect records - I just bought 6 lou reed albums for 6 quid, which is a bargain I'm proud of. CD wise, I recently bought mark Ronson: Version (which is a bit hit and miss), John Coltrane: Giant Steps (as the record changes hand at too high a price, whereas the cd was a fiver) and before that I think it was Blood Brothers: Young Machetes (loud and fun)
it's been over 10 years since I actually went into a CD shop...and I'm a musician ....
The last one I bought was S.H.E. a girl group from Taiwan and they can sing as well as look good!!!!!!!!!!!!
Queens of The Stone Age - Era Vulgaris
not a patch on Songs for the deaf, seriously missing Oliveri and lacks bite. Ned to get out and get the new one by Orange Goblin next
CroftWork by the Peatbog Faeries
my chemical romance - the black parade
I have become an Itunes downloader, but the last virtual album I purchased was "The Domino Club" by The Men They Couldn't Hang, I have lost the album in various moves, so I am now downloading replacements.
I can;t remember to be honest. I don't get the chance to listen as much I used to, plus I'm not that heavily impressed with what's on the market. The problem at my age is I look through my back catalogue and think 'I don't remember buying that, that, that, and that................ '
Level 42 Love songs!
sorry massive 42 fan here!
I don't buy much at the mo. Tend to get stuck with the radio. Last I bought was Rammstein - Volkerball with the DVD. I've pre-ordered Graduation by Kanye West so that'll most likely be my next one although it's not out until August. Tempted by Chemical Brothers and White stripes too but I've got to penny pinch.
Sir Henry at Rawlinson End by Viv Stanshall. Classic, nostalgic, bizarre British humour. Reminds me of riding round the Derbyshire dales during school summer holidays as a teenager, then stopping and camping wild listening to Viv on John Peel on the trannie with a big spliff or two.
I have to confess to a bit of an addiction...
I don't buy them one at a time; the last three were
Liszt: Faust Symphony (an exciting performance and the usual fine Chandos sound quality)
Elgar: Symphony no.2 and overture In the South (haven't been in the mood to play this yet, but Hickox's conducting + Chandos sound rarely disappoints)
Bellowhead: Burlesque (not sure I need a whole CD of this - it makes an interesting change from the Spiers/Boden duo, but I find it better in smaller doses).
Currently on order from the US, because the price here is (as so often) extortionate, is Wendy Carlos' The Well-Tempered Synthesizer, just because I've never heard it and am curious.
