How’s it going?
Apologies for missing last week…..but was offered a freebie for the Aviva last Thursday night so I went there instead…..prawn sandwiches in me pocket….borne out of luck more than connections….well done aul chap versus DOWCTHA LONGIE BOY….maybe with an expletive….he was out the cross for a while…one of ours.
It will live long in the memory as well to be honest, pity they couldn’t get the job done in Warsaw, but heh that’s sport….did they really deserve 2nd place in the group?…fingers crossed for the qualifiers I suppose.
Some weekend for sport (not the one just gone obviously), those rugby boys were awesome; such a pity there was so many injuries because if everyone was fit till the end of the tournament they could have had a right rattle off it…
I am still having t’internet problems so I am behind schedule a bit but will try and get back on track for next week….
Anyway to the tunes, for tomorrow, no messing here…
Universal for last Friday the 16th have the LOVELY looking PETER GABRIEL LP reissues, the first four solo albums, 1,2,3,4 or CAR, SCRATCH, MELT, SECURITY, whatever tickles your fancy, reissued on Vinyl for the first time since 2002, cut at half speed for greater quality, numbered and limited to 10, 000 worldwide….we got a few of each, our Cork ones numbered in 9,900s….just about got em id say.
Got a couple of 3 and 4 or melt and security in the rare German language versions also….3,000 only of these globally…MR. Gabriel is in studio recording a new album by all accounts and from what I heard from a few of ye who saw him in Dublin recently he sounds as good as ever.
FRANK ZAPPA the mothers of invention “one size fits all” LP reissue in the shop also for tomorrow….a colourful and interesting artist is probably a good way to describe Zappa….or a bit mad another way….interesting dude to have a pint with id say.
Universal also have for tomorrow the GREGG ALLMAN – back to Macon vinyl release.
Universal also for tomorrow have brand new albums by JOHN NEWMAN, DEMI LOVATO, LUDOVICO EINAUDI and TOM ROBINSON ( first studio work in 20 years) and a couple of 5 CD sets by UB40 and QUO.
Check out LUDOVICO here for just how beautiful music can sound…..
Warner for tomorrow have new albums by SATAN and SAXON (no, not the same band to non metal fans).
Warner also have the RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE live at FINSBURY PARK DVD and BLURAY , which is a free gig they held in honor of the defeating of the X Factor single for the number one spot Christmas 2009…..we at Music Zone towers are giving away an everlasting gobstopper, a bloody red splattered vinyl one, for whoever can tell me which X Factor winner they stopped back then….i normally would not knock anything musically be it Celine Dion or the teletubbies but I have a beef with the industry over X Factor…..it is money pumped in for a quick fix….this programme was in its pomp when record shops were being culled, when an industry showed little or no support for the bricks and mortar stores….i could go on in more detail, some other time maybe.
Anyway, back to the releases,
Sony have some nice MILES DAVIS reissues on Vinyl including the classics, KIND OF BLUE, BITCHES BREW and SKETCHES OF SPAIN.
Again, these are no strangers to the shop having being in stock via MUSIC ON VINYL until very recently, now Sony are reissuing them on their COLUMBIA/LEGACY label at about 15 to 20 % cheaper….kind of blue is 20 euro….the right price point for a single LP in my opinion.
Sony has the debut solo album by MARKUS FEEHILY from Westlife and a new studio album from JEAN MICHAEL JARRE.
Pias have the new DEERHUNTER ALBUM …it is their 7th album and a bit more accessible than some of their other records from what I heard.
EP also from AIDAN MOFFAT/BILL WELLS , deluxe version of the EAVES album, 14 CD boxset by OVERKILL and ENTER SHIKARI orange 10” .
We had ANDERSON in the shop last Friday for a few tunes, he gave a top acoustic set of five or 6 tunes and he really had a lovely easygoing way about him….listened to the album quite a bit since and it really is quite good….he promises to be back for RSD 2016, once he doesn’t turn in to bleeeedddiinnn Bono in the meantime….
Short and maybe not to sweet this week but will find my feet and a computer that works hopefully by next week….
