  1. Top 10 so far: 1 Pearl Charles - Magic Mirror 2 Dry Cleaning - New long Leg 3 the Gracious Losers - Six Road Ends 4 Hadda Be - Another Life 5 Lana Del Rey - Chemtrails Over ... 6 Godspeed YBE - G_d’s Pee ... 7 HAIM - Women in Music Part III 8 Maxwell Sterling- Turn of Phrase 9 Du Blonde - Homecoming 10 Veik - Surrounding Structures Pearl Charles is looking like album of the year even at this early stage. Last Night From Glasgow goes from strength to strength with 2 crackers from Gracious Losers and Hadda Be. Dry Cleaning has really grown on me after feeling a bit repetitive at first. Godspeed You! Black Emperor is amazing and should go higher in the list after a few more listens. Received the Squid album yesterday but not had a chance to play it yet. Rudimentary Peni new one also arrived yesterday. On first listen it doesn’t reach the heights of their earlier stuff but still great. Might get into the top 10 after a few more listens. A bit disappointed with the new Teenage Fanclub especially the vocals but will persevere. Arab Strap just missing out on top 10 for now.
  2. Night shift. Listening to the Boss and eating spicy burritos. I’ve had worse jobs
  3. I liked it on first listen but thought it got a bit repetitive towards the end. I’m expecting this to be the Rough Trade Club Album of The Month do will give it another listen when the vinyl arrives.
  4. Listened to this last night for the first time in around 25 years. Very much of it’s time, UK grunge lite but actually a bit better than I remember it as a whole and a shame it seems to have been erased somewhat from the history of the band.
  5. Today’s listening. Onto last one now before bed (nightshift ).
  6. Chilling with a beer and music #NowPlaying
  7. New one (Kitchen Sink?) is excellent. That was the first I heard so checking out her other stuff now before sending an order off to Rough Trade. Cramps is actually playing right now. Bit of nostalgia for me but it actually sounds pretty fresh considering how old it is now. Lockdown has been great for catching up with old favourites if nothing else
  8. First time I’ve played this in years. Still love Harriet Wheeler’s voice.
  9. C Duncan H-E-A-L-T-H 2019 FatCat Records
  10.

TASJAN! TASJAN! 06 SHAME - DRUNK TANK PINK 07 STEVEN WILSON - THE FUTURE BITES 08 POM POKO - CHEATER
  11. I've made a conscious decision to listen to more albums and EPs this year rather than listening to playlists, favourite trackes etc. January was a good start where after listening to no music at all on the first day the rest of the month totalled exactly 100 albums and 2 EPs listened to, mostly to and from work via Spotify but also a few physical releases in the house. So far for 2021 my favourites are : 01 PEARL CHARLES - MAGIC MIRROR 02 VIAGRA BOYS - WELFARE JAZZ 03 SHAME - DRUNK TANK PINK 04 POM POKO - CHEATER I'm thinking at the moment Pearl Charles is the only one with any chance of being in my top 10 at the end of the year. Pretty much a limited release but I managed to get a copy on nice, blue vinyl from Rough Trade. Viagra Boys also came from Rough Trade, this time on white vinyl.
  12. Just arrived from Juno Records. Pearl Charles - Magic Mirror. Beautiful. ABBA go country with Fleetwood Mac and Carole King lending some help.
  13. So far today ... Journey home from work = Crass - Stations of The Crass Dog walk = Underworld - Dubnobasswithmyheadman Now =
  14. Absolute nonsense. There were some great releases on the Crass label. A few not so good to be fair but a real varied output.
  15. Michael Rother - Dreaming. Possibly my favourite album of 2020.
  16. Classic EP. I’ve got a box with all my old Crass label singles in it. Really need to dig them out for a wee listen.
  17. Going to the Last Night From Glasgow showcase at the Oran Mor on Sunday. 10 bands for £9. Real value for money and a cracking line-up. Tickets still available if anyone fancies it.
  18. How do you bet on the juniors with McBookie? Can't find the odds on their site. Cheers
  19. 1. Sister John - Sister John 2. Callum Easter - Here Or Nowhere 3. Kokoko! - Fongola 4. Billie Eilish - When we all Fall Asleep, Where Do we Go? 5. Amyl & The Sniffers - Amyl & The Sniffers 6. Sacred Paws - Run Around The Sun 7. Steve Mason - About The Light 8. Fontaines D.C. - Dogrel 9. W.H. Lung - Incidental
  20. Aye, you're correct. Probably the reason I forgot to put it in my list earlier. Either that or I was listening on Spotify which was the Deluxe Version (2019)
