A combination of birthday presents and purchases to add to the collection.
Presents (from my sister Hannah):
Reuben – Racecar is Racecar Backwards (signed LP)
Reuben – Stuck In My Throat (7″ single 2003)
Kaiser Chiefs – Everyday I Love You Less And Less (7″ single 2005)
and then today in town at the Left Legged Pineapple I bought (for 50p each!):
Softcell – Tainted Love (7″ single 1981)
The Beatles – I Want To Hold Your Hand (7″ single 1963)
Gary Numan – Cars (7″ single 1979)
The Softcell and Gary Numan sound great, The Beatles single however seems to be warped causing the needle to jump A LOT for the first half of the song which is a great shame, but it teaches me a fairly new vinyl hunter a few things – check the record before you buy! But for 50p you can’t go wrong really.
Also for geek spotters I like the fact that i’ve managed to find the original Tainted Love after it appeared in Dr. Who on the jukebox there. He he lol.
PS Just put up the tent for airing before wednesday.
