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.
