>I had a little rant over on the (ugly) sister blog so I thought I’d better balance it here – this won’t always be the case but it’s probably best to start off with an attempt to present myself as someone with a balanced set of views. Not true, of course, I’m as biased as the next misogynist (little Jake Thackray reference there for you – he was definitely one of the *good* things in life).
So, yeah – Jake, but what have I been listening to *recently*? This week it’s been the Throwing Muses anthology (got most of the tracks already but the remastering is fab), the Beach Boys SMiLE sessions, Dif Juz (on my headphones right now while I work), the first two Alice Cooper albums, Magna Carta, Donovan (the first six or seven albums up to & including the massively under-rated Barabajagal – but not Hurdy Gurdy Man), the remastered Piper At The Gates Of Dawn & complete Rainbow concert (that I was at) where they played DSOTM for the first time ever in the UK (over a year before the album came out), Van Der Graaf Generator, and then before that Sally Oldfield – but that was weeks ago.
This blog won’t be *only* about music but this will do for a start. Back to work.
