Music I’ve bought in August.
By the minuscule list below it kinda looks like I’ve finally managed to scale down the amount of music I’m buying… but it’s probably just because I went away on holidays.
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*
