Another great Dexys 7″, but this one I got because of the TV show it was made for. I used to really like that show, it was fun, and this was so cheap that I had to buy it just to remind me of it.

New (old) vinyl: Ian Dury – Hit me with your rhythm stick
A 1978 copy of this! I had to pick it up really, and it was really cheap too. A bargain, and a great song too.
New (old) vinyl: Tom Robinson – War Baby
This is one of my all time favourite Tom Robinson tracks. It really is excellent. I’d more or less forgotten the song, so when I stumbled over it I was really pleased. Now that I have the 7″ I thought I’d find a digital version too. Could I find it anywhere? No, not anywhere at all! What’s that about?
I tried to find it on CD and those are hard to come by too. I’ll keep searching.
New (old) vinyl: YMO – Firecracker / Technopolis
I’ve liked bits and pieces of YMO for years, but I’ve more enjoyed the work of the individual members of YMO more. So I thought I’d pick this up and see what it was like. Another good find at my local second hand record store.
New (old) vinyl: Trio – Da Da Da
As I have a VL-1 and as I’ve even gone as far as releasing my own VL-1 bot I just had to pick this up really. I didn’t have the vinyl version before this, but now I have!
New (old) vinyl: Eurythmics – Sexcrime (1984)
This was a brilliant single on a great album which should have been an amazing soundtrack to the film 1984. I still don’t really know why it wasn’t the soundtrack in the end. It would have worked really well I think.
Another great find from my local second hand record store.
