Another recording of the waves from Lyme Regis beach.
Day: April 3, 2016
Blancmange, Blind Vision, clear vinyl
This was a great little find. I do like ‘Blind Vision’. The B side was something I hadn’t heard before too, so that was a bit of a bonus.
Field Recording: Building site near Kings Cross
Another little recording from last week. I noticed the sounds coming form this building site and thought that they’d make some good percussive sounds, so I recorded them.
Vinyl: Strawberry Switchblade, Since Yesterday
Another purchase from yesterday, and in fact, from yesteryear! I love this song almost as much as their other hit ‘Trees and Flowers’, which was brilliant. So, for £1 I had to pick it up really.
Field Recording: The Waves at Lyme Beach
This was taken after a big storm, storm Katie I think, and so the waves were pretty big. I mean, not huge, but big enough for some nice sounds anyway. I hope you like it.
Old vinyl: Depeche Mode, See You
I got this 12″ out of purely sentimental reasons. I really liked their early songs and this is a great one.
Old vinyl: John Foxx singles
Another batch of old singles I picked up yesterday. A bunch of John Foxx singles, two from his first album.
Old Vinyl: Fashion, Love Shadow 12″
I was buying old vinyl from one of my favourite record shops and came across this. I used to be a big Fashion fan, or rather I really like their old stuff, so when I found this I had to grab it.
I especially like the ‘home taping’ warning on the sleeve. I always thought that home taping was easier than going around a mate’s house to do it!
Happy (belated) Birthday Apple
So Apple is 40 now, or at least a few days ago anyway. It’s somewhat amazing to think they’ve been around that long. However, it’s great to know that 40 can be quite so cool. That makes me feel good anyway. I hope that they keep making cool stuff. Of late I’ve found that their stuff hasn’t been quite as reliable as it used to be. I’d like to think that they’ll continue to be innovative. I think it’s been hard to innovate in the mobile space for a while, but that’s what they need to do, that’s what the market needs.
