Music I’ve bought in September.
After some months of really trying to cut down on buying music, I just kinda gave up.
LET THE FLOODGATES OPEN!
Music I’ve bought in July.
And I went to Barcelona and saw a Joe Jackson concert (great) and went to Sónar (fun). I need to buy some stuff from some of the peeps I saw there… like… er… uhm… Oh, yes! Afrodeutsche was great. Very German. (You know, like To Rococo Rot and… Pole? Yeah.) And… Faka? And Catnapp.
I’m not a King Crimson fanatic, but I really love the three albums with Adrian Belew from the early 80s (the ones all Crimson fans hate). And it turns out that Fripp is re-releasing the entire oeuvre in a ridiculously lavish fashion.
It’s like 20 discs per “era”. It’s ludicrous! I love it!
So I got the Discipline/Beat/Perfect Pair set:
It’s 19 discs! It’s CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays! It’s total overkill! It’s endless Crimson! It’s the best! Yay!
Music I’ve bought in May.
After restraining my music buying impulses for a very, very long time (a month or two?), I broke down in May and went on several shopping sprees.
In particular, I’ve been buying Joe Jackson live albums and singles and stuff. I grew up with Beat Crazy, that wild and weird new wave album, because one of my older sisters had it, but I haven’t really explored the “misc.” stuff he released in this period, and the live albums are surprisingly amazing. New versions of all the songs I love.
And then… more more more stuff. *sigh*
