Art Experimental Band reissues came out on Sundazed, being in a
record store & seeing something like 4 separate Munjo Jerry cds (a
couple of greatest hits, one of which was a 2cd, a 2lps-on-on-cd
comp, etc). At the time it was an index of the great evil &

- Dancin' round the kitchen this summer to...
Tony Allen -- Progress
Recent Gorillaz and White Stripes CD (I know, not Wire-hip but whatever)
Jimi Tenor -- Cosmic Relief on Sahko/Puu
That Finnish 70s jazz 12" reissued on JazzPuu with the Kenny Dope remix (forgot the name)
Louis Austin -- Amore 12" on Cheap
Marumari -- Supermogadon on Carpark
Any Soul Jazz comp (the previously mentioned Dynamite series, New Orleans Funk, Studio 1 Rockers, etc.)
- what I listened to today while skiving off work
beta band - 3eps
never heard much by them before but people seem to be raving about their new
album. I bought this instead cos it was only £6.99.
culturecide - tacky souvenirs of pre-revolutionary america
found this last week in an old box full of tapes I hadn't listened to for
years and put it on a minidisk - still makes me laugh.
john cage - cheap imitation
saw it in a second hand shop and impulse bought.
sun city girls - libyan dream
another band I've heard loads about but never actually listened to before.
not as good as I was hoping it would be but still interesting.
darker than blue
best blood & fire release for ages.
early girls volume 3
includes "old cape cod" by patti page. sublime.
fave mungo jerry track: alright alright alright....
