Charity shops++

Yesterday I went round Camden with random_haze, poking the charity shops and Camden MVE with a stick to see what fell out.


Gentlemen Take Polaroids - Japan (cassette)
Of course I've got it on vinyl, but I might actually *listen* to it if it's on cassette, and anyway, Japan are A Good Thing no matter what.

The Dream Of The Blue Turtles - Sting (cassette)
I bought this a while ago, from another charity shop, carted it home and discovered that the tape inside was actually 'Zenyatta Mondatta' by The Police, which was a nice surprise in its own right, but slightly irritating, so I thought I'd rectify that yesterday. It's got Sting's tribute to the writings of Anne Rice on it, which I've not heard yet, so obviously I had to really.

My Love, Sex And Spirit - James Hall (CD)
Which I bought solely on the strength of its having a very pretty cover. And, having listened to some of it, which I will *keep* purely on the strength of its having a very pretty cover, because it's terrible. But that's ok. :)

Stormtrooper In Drag - Paul Gardiner (7")
I don't have the song anywhere else, and it's one of Gary Numan's best. Also, this 7" appears to be signed. But since the MVE only wanted £2 for it, maybe it isn't genuine. I can't help being curious, though.

Fire Woman - The Cult (7")
Don't Stop The Dance - Bryan Ferry (7")
Change - Tears For Fears (7")
Because.

Donnes-Moi Le Chocolat - Fantastique (CD)
Because I couldn't not, even though I'd no idea what it was. It is in fact kind of bizarre, low-key 4am dance music. It's...odd.

Nothing's Shocking - Jane's Addiction (cassette)
YAY!

Crucified - Army Of Lovers (12")
I know I won't like this if I ever bother listening to it, but the cover is enough all by itself, so that's ok. Actually having looked them up they look more interesting than I remembered. I'm still going to hate it though, aren't I?

Erotic - Madonna (CD)
The CD single that came in shiny!shiny!silver!foil!. *ahem* It's shiny. And it comes in a silver foil bag thing. And it's shiny. And, yay.

There was also this, which I've been wanting to get for some time.
I'm not going to spoil it for you by telling you what it's like. Come over and listen to it, or get it yourselves. It's...something else. And not at all what you'd expect. ~g~

And finally there was a book, namely 'Scaredy Cat' by Mark Billingham. His book 'Sleepyhead' is the most frightening, disturbing book I've ever read, and brilliant with it, so I have high hopes for this. And they're set in London, as well, which is always good.

So, I feel better for Stuff, which probably isn't the way it should be but hey, I'm a materialistic sort of child. ~s~
I also - somewhat humiliatingly - feel better for repeatedly listening to 'Keep Me A Secret' by Ainslie, which as most of you won't remember (or even have known in the first place) was the single from one of the boys in Fame Academy. Not a great pedigree, but the song is just lovely.

So that's me. How are you?

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
