Powerful stuff

Posted: May 26, 2009 in Uncategorized

It’s been a mentally draining week.
The weather has taken a rapid turn towards the Spring and we’ve been moving house. In the middle of that was a massive family booze-up, packing stuff for the move, stressing over deposits and arguing over the unpacking.
I have realised I am not human; I’m a Womble.
I collect an ungodly amount of shit and then pack it all away in plastic bags (which I’ve also kept for some reason…Tower bags seem to be a favourite) to be viewed at later dates.
So far I’ve uncovered TV guides from 2007, train tickets with chewing gum in them, college notes from years ago, clothes I haven’t worn in 3 years and jazz mags I forgot I had (that was Sinead’s discovery, much to her delight. They’re good ones too…at least, they were good ones)
At first I was a little wary of the whole moving thing. I love the other place and if you saw the photos on Daft I think I linked to a while ago, you’d probably see why. The new place is a good deal though, great pub up the road and much bigger and more ‘homely’…I think. It even has a fireplace.
Been trying to plot some kind of hoildays the last while and Primavera is getting ever closer. Feel like I really need a break and that would the ultimate one this year, given the cracking line-up.
Anyway, I’ll leave you with a few tracks from albums I’ve been listening to recently.
A dash of the Bonnie Prince, a banging track from DOOM’s latest and a nice bit of work from Ohio drone-ambient peddlers, Emeralds
Toodle pip.

Bonnie Prince Billy – Beware Your Only Friend
DOOM – Gazzillion Ear
Emeralds – Alive in the Sea of Information
