What I Bought On My Lunch...



In the 3 cds for £3.00 section, today I purchased:

When - Vincent Gallo (Warp Records, 2001, out of print, hard to get hold of)

"Under The Western Freeway" - Grandaddy (Will Records, 1997, a 9.6/10 classic - I thought I owned this, but found out recently it was "The Sophtware Slump" I had)

"Wagonwheel Blues" - The War On Drugs (Secretly Canadian, 2008, a relatively new one for balance, the old band of the dude Kurt Vile who's making waves just now)

Anyone got any good bargains lately (it doesn't have to be music)?

Joe Harriott, Free Form, an album I've been looking for for years as (according to some accounts) it's a British jazz record that pre-empts Ornette Coleman - brand new reissue for only three quid!

I got a free cruise over the telephone. I get the rest of the details at this meeting that's coming up.

@ blimpy - one of my Rules Of Life is, if you see a Grandaddy CD, you should always buy it. You can't go wrong ...

@Aba - "Free Form" you say? Why, it's on Spotify!! (Kidding!!!!)

@tfb - especially if it's a pound, you can't even get two choccy bars for a pound these days.

that's some good shopping Blimpo! I like the idea of Vincent Gallo's music more than I actually like the music, I think

I picked up a beats/dubsteppy/grimey compilation for 300 yen last week that I can't stop listening to..

is "Wagonwheel Blues" a concept album about having your packed lunch nicked??

Blimpy said...

@japanther - hee hee.

also, the instrumentals on "when" are better than the non, sorry Vincey baby (now go make another film wouldya!! buffalo 66 was nothing short of genius)

I quite like 'When', though I do think Vincent Gallo is a bit of a dick (based in large part on a friend of mine meeting him for an interview). Also, he dedicated a song to Paris Hilton, which makes the hackles rise.

The item I've had most fun buying lately? A DVD of 'Reefer Madness' for €3. Now all I have to do is schedule a time for watching it and the hundreds of others I still haven't seen.
