Sheila E - Sex Cymbal




Picked up another big haul of cheapo CDs at the weekend including stuff from Sigur Ros, The Blue Nile, The Wonderstuff, Buddy Rich, The Pixies and one time Prince collaborator Sheila E...13 CDs in total for a mere £5. Good grief. I've wittered on about how cheap CDs are now and, sure, you can just stream most of the tracks for free but that's a faff and generally the quality's a bag a shite so, if you've got the room and a half decent stereo there's simply never been a better time to fill your boots. Plus, is it just me or are those little shiny discs starting to feel a little retro cool...?

The Breeders - Divine Hammer




Oh boy we could do with 'one divine hammer' right now. I can think of quite a few politicians I'd like to see squished by it too...

M.C. Syn-Dee - Best To Be A Girl




Got given a bunch of records the other week and this is pretty much the only one I hadn't heard before, a lovely little slice of late 80s girl rap a la Neneh Cherry. No idea what happened to M.C. Syn-Dee but clearly John Peel was a bit of a fan. Who knew eh?

Hen Ogledd - Problem Child




Cop a load of this. Everything Everything meets Peter Gabriel in some remote Welsh village. Really rather excellent all round. Well done Hen Ogledd.

The Nice - America




For some reason this track's been going round and round in my head this morning. What would the news be without endless prattling politicians (from all sides) eh? Still, give it 20 years and the world will be probably be run by 'Google'. In the meantime let's enjoy some rather fine heavy proto prog from 1968! Groovy man.

Ice Nine Kills - Thank God It's Friday




An album of horror themed metalcore tracks anyone? No? Just me then eh? In honour of both Halloween and the fact that it's ruddy Friday submit your eyes and ears to a little Ice Nine Kills and their throat ripping tribute to the Friday 13th franchise (new album Silver Scream features 13 such tracks...13...spooky eh...I guess 666 was a bit of a stretch for 'em). Play it loud and freak out the cat/dog/neighbours.
