    What a bland, tepid, uninspiring list. I get it is radio 2, but fuck me the list is mainly a series of flash in the pan type temporarily popular shite.
    jeez, why even post that LJ?

    anyway, it's tenth year of me doing annual cds for mates. it's true the cd is well and truly dead of course but i least i just about made it a decade's worth.
    looking back at 2010 is a bit sad as mark linkous and scott hutchison never saw out the decade, though mark had already passed away that very year. such a great songwriter but a troubled soul. it may have been my favourite album I bought that year not that it matters really. this made the list

    it is not that I have no past. rather, it continually fragments on the terrible and vivid ephemera of now.

    The only one of that list that is even vaguely decent is American Idiot.
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    1. The Great Wall of China

    2. Low Hill at Christmas

    Theres a couple of decent ones on there, Hot Fuss, Back to Black, only by the night, Eyes open and Parachutes I own and happily listen too.

    I also have fond memories of David Grays album, but for the life of me apart from Babylon I couldn't remember a single song, its was more a time and place thing for me.

    Off to see Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott at the London Palladium next April....slightly annoying purchasing experience though as I had a code to get priority access and that should have allowed me to buy up to 4 tickets but it would only allow 1 . Fair play to Gigs and Tours though as they responded quickly and fixed the problem.

    Had an email about that last night and meant to post the info here, as suspected you'd be interested. Glad to see you've secured your tickets mate.

    Fred Deakin of lemon jelly fame has a new project (The Lasters) that will be touring next feb, with a brum date. Will be acquiring tickets for that!

    Heaton's a good lad as well and all tickets for his tour are priced at 30 each (not including the venues fees obvs). Could have done Birmingham but decided a jolly in London would be better

    Did you pre-order the new album then Kenny? I'll be looking forward to that next year.

    Our X-Box died and the new one turned up not long ago. Old problem was it wasn't playing DVD or Blueray. This is now sorted and the DVD of Queen Montreal I bought a few months ago is now on, but the extras I haven't seen since live (well on the telly) back in 1985. Christ Queen were beyond brilliant that day at Live Aid. And also much props for the people behind Bohemian Rhapsody for getting it so close on the film.

    Madness playing the Electric Ballroom in Camden on the 17th November. 40 years on from playing and charging just 2.50 per ticket. (plus booking fee of course). Tickets on sale Friday

    Would be all over that but I am in London on the 14th to see the Blizzards so unable to get 2 trips in a couple of days sorted.

    I would get a royal slap from the boss! I have used a lot of brownie points this year thanks to Wolves (including pissing off for nearly 4 days to Turin)

    I am working on it though....

    Underworlds album has been delayed by a cuple of weeks, so they've emailed a download of it to keep me going!

    Looks like the avalanches are due to announce a new record soon.

    Chemical brothers re-release surrender later this month.

    Einaudi's newie (also delayed) is out later this month.

    I fucking love music!

    Unlucky mate! Have to say its unsurprising really though isn't it? 2.50 a ticket? I debated trying to get a ticket myself.
    Some of the scramble for tickets nowadays is nuts!

    Not surprising at all, mainly as the venue isn't that big. The moment I got the "lots people trying to buy" message it was game over. Ah well, still got a gig the Thursday before at a venue called Nell's (near the Hammersmith Apollog apparently) and I am happy with that.

    If Nells is a small venue (ie not arena sized) then you'll still have a great time.
    Forgot to mention that I think my fred deakin record has arrived at my folks, so off to visit them. The artwork has some strange AR stuff as part of its concept:

    top ten vinyls i have based on discogs Max value (essentially some mug on discogs paid a silly amount to get a copy )

    1. spiderland box set
    2. new order - substance (weird)
    3. sonic youth - daydream nation
    4. stone roses
    5. pink floyd - dark side (my version is knackered, prob worth a fiver). Max value for the version 100!
    6. doolittle (first edition but i've lost the nice arty insert so prob worth a tenner)
    7. NIN - broken
    8. this charming man 7"
    9. cult - dreamtime (with added live album). someone paid 86 for this lol
    #10. meat beat manifesto - satyricon

    Oh lord, gonna have to do that this weekend.

    I have lemon jellys debut album, which used to go for around 200. I have a couple of their early EPs too.

    I have that NIN on vinyl (with the 7").
    I have the pure cult 4LP box (2 live records). I also have the pink floyd pulse vinyl box. Dunno if its value dropped, as there has been a recent re-release.

    This just popped up in my Spotify feed. I've not heard it before. A lovely trippy tribute to famous English cricketers.
