So some things happened, basically around stumbling over RSD 17 releases that I didn’t get on the day and, perhaps in a couple of cases, didn’t know I wanted.
Head records in Leamington had a second shipment after RSD for some reason so there were a couple of things there that were gone on my previous visits but had since turned up again. As a reminder, I had already picked up the following:
Field Music – Tones Of Town
Faust (7), Ulan Bator – Untitled
Richard Pinhas, Camera (10) – Camera / Richard Pinhas
Cocteau Twins – Four-Calendar Café
Cocteau Twins – Milk & Kisses
Mew – Frengers
Future Sound Of London – Archived : Environmental : Views
Then, from the second shipment I picked up:
Asobi Seksu – Citrus
Steve Reich – LSO Percussion Ensemble – Sextet | Clapping Music | Music For Pieces Of Wood
The LSO video above is the whole 28 minutes or so of Sextet, because it is an amazing piece of music and, apparently, really hard to play! Performed by Neil Percy, Sam Walton, David Jackson, Antoine Bedewi, Philip Moore & Simon Crawford-Phillips.
Earlier in the week I was on the Cowley Road in Oxford and briefly poped into Truck, who, much to my surprise, had this:
So I picked that up and, to my further surprise, they had this 7″ single:
The Smiths – The Boy With The Thorn In His Side
So that must surely be that for RSD 2017, although there were a couple of Ennio Morricone soundtracks that I’d like and there’s the soundtrack to Belgica by Soulwax, and Popol Vuh, and the three Spacemen 3 albums of course and possibly Sun Ra & Merzbow and, and, no, that has to be it, has to be, this whole thing is too damn expensive.
