September Music Purchases

Golden Smog – Another Fine Day Alt-Country ‘Supergroup’ Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) Gary Louris (The Jayhawks) and members of Blind Melon last studio album. Great stuff.

Basement Jaxx – The Singles I don’t have much (any) dance music in my collection. On first listen I like about half the tracks on this album, which is what I thought before I bought it.

The Black Crowes – Warpaint Live Only Black Crowes album that I don’t have......

Mogwai – Young Team Mogwai’s debut album bought from a market stall in Tynemouth came with a free single of 4 remixes of Mogwai Fear Satan all for £3....

Bloc Party – A Weekend In The City Don’t know enough about this band so cheap purchase to find out whether they are one for me or not.

Mercury Rev – All Is Dream A #masterpieces discovery for me so picking up back catalogue when I can.

The Cranberries – Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We Great debut from an Irish band that promised much and then appeared to lose the plot.

Gizeh Records I discovered this Leeds based label after seeing one of their bands, Sleepingdogs support Low. They specialise in post rock and ambient music for lovers of Mogwai, Radiohead etc. I bought a few CD’s in their sale and also downloaded some new artists for a nominal donation. Artists I bought were; Worriedaboutsatan, Redjetson, Immune, Greenland, Glissando,  Her Name Is Calla, Fieldhead, and Detwiije. This is a really good great label that deserves you support worth downloading the free sampler


  1. I bought a Bloc Party album from iTunes a couple of years back - was disappointed.

  2. Mine was from Tynemouth market and cost me £1. On first listen like a few tracks, but get that feeling it's not as good as everybody thinks....

  3. Nice mix there - most I have this time!!
    I am a big Bloc Party fan, Basement Jaxx are far too "poppy" for me.
    I remember the first time I heard Linger, what a voice she had - then got famous and went mad...
