This will be the last update before Christmas, so we wanted to say thanks for the support and we hope you all have a great break. We’ll be closed Public Holidays only, so Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. Our End Of Year lists will be up in January just in case a new lp drops and wipes the floor with everything that came before. Total Control - Laughing at The System EP re-stocks are on their way to us right now, but probably land just after Chrissie.
Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week?
Bob Dylan “Time Out Of Mind has been re-issued on vinyl for the first time, so its been getting a good work out. Probably his last really great album. The Congos “Heart of The Congos” has been great in the heat and Sex Tourists has still been getting a flogging. A new tape from the awesome Angie has just landed, and can't wait to hear it. Still play her last album Shyness every week. Been on an Outkast bender last week or so too. A re-issue of Post by Paul Kelly has just landed and was reminded what a excellent album it is. The Total Control EP is great stuff too.
Good Throb S/T 7” and Trevor S/T 7” Good Throb give us some ripper punk from the UK, Trevor give us one side of crunchy jungle the other some drum machine/tape generated fake free jazz. Both sides have Ace of Bass samples

CHILTON, ALEX - Like Flies on Sherbert LP Through songs by Ernest Tubb, Jimmy C. Newman, Roy Orbison and K.C. and the Sunshine Band, as well as some originals, Chilton produced a looser album that allowed his new found creativity to flow through the many cracks, simultaneously dividing fans into two camps: the Big Star purists, and the ones who were able to see the genius on the flip side of its demise. Includes four bonus tracks.
v/a - Heed The Call LP Heed The Call! collects the best New Zealand material from the afro-tastic days of 1973 to 1983.
