amazing what you can find in the bargain departments of second-hand record shops. Today, I visited Notting Hill, and picked up:

  • The Boo Radleys - "Wake Up!" - £2
  • Sugar - "Beaster" - £1 (no idea what it's like, other than RAN having reviewed it glowingly, but one can't go wrong at the price)
  • Registered Nurse - "strippers" - £1 (similarly)
  • pictureCENTER - "our true intent is for all your delight" - £1 (Mark Dobson from The Field Mice's subsequent band, produced by Mice/St. Et producer Ian Catt; quotes Sarah Kane in the booklet, so it's probably less maudlin and more avant-garde than Bobby Wratten's recent work)
  • The Little Darla Has A Treat For You #20 compilation, for £2
  • and another copy of Airpop Terminal 2 for DJing use here, for £5.

Meanwhile, at the non-bargain-basement M&VE, I got:

  • The Pastels - "Truckload of Trouble" - £8
  • Chris Knox - "Yes!" - £3

I also went up to Rough Trade, and picked up a copy of New Buffalo's The Last Beautiful Day.

i really like that sugar record
Some people find it to be depressing Bob Mould wanking but I thought it was excellent.

Quite pleasant so far, especially the last track. Though Inside sounds a bit naked without the electronic drum machine. I'm also not sure about the saxophone that pops up in places.

It'd have been interesting to hear what she recorded in LA for EMI before they pulled the plug on that.

Funny how you go to the other side of the world to buy a registered nurse album. I got my copy of Strippers for under $10 somewhere in Malvern, a few years back. It was definitely one of my best ever "i wonder what this is like, anyway?" buys (I suspect it won't do as much for you, though). Now you just need to find the second album cheap, too :)
