I must get my finger out and organize a bit of live music for the day so I will come back to ye folks on that over the coming weeks…

Proper for the 25th of March have a few also worth noting, there is a COWBOY JUNKIES album “ songs of the recollection” on CD and LP….this is a covers album…here is their cover of a certain Mr Bowies “five years”
Gonna head over to Shane now with a few interesting further down the road releases …TOOL fans at the ready…on this release actually i must say a few words…its wicked expensive to start with…but even aside from that, qty pressed is tiny and even at the price we may have done double the number we were allocated ( 5 copies and 3 spoken for already) , tis frustrating to be honest, sometimes allocations are 1 or 2 units…we are even been allocated on catalog stock now from some record companies…it is what it is, a blessing and a curse.
Sorry over to you Shane kid..
Sound Ray, yeah I agree, this is mad expensive but unfortunately Tool fans like myself have to go for it.
I read during the week that there were signed versions of this released through their website and fans were giving out as it was over 800 dollars, so they released these more affordable (!) non-signed ones.
In fairness, they do always do very cool artwork and packaging but still.
I’m going to see them in Dublin in May, the first time they’ve been in Ireland since 2006!
We have very limited quantities as Ray said of this vinyl box set of their last album ‘Fear Inoculum‘ which is class.
Fastest finger first on this so if interested don’t wait:
Second up is another favourite of mine (and Bobby’s) King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have yet another new album coming on the 15th of April. It’s called ‘Made in Timeland’. Seriously impressive band, they often release 2 or 3 albums a year. A few years back they did a thrash metal one, then built their own guitars with unique tunings for another 3 albums and recently they did an electronicy one!
Here’s the ‘Dripping Tap’
A bit further down the line, is a new Live album on coloured vinyl by Irish legends MOVING HEARTS. It was recorded in Vicar St. in 2007. It’s limited to 750 copies worldwide and will be out at the end of May.
Also coming soon are new albums by KURT VILE and KEVIN MORBY.
Oh, forgot to link the Tin Machine 2 release last week, so there you go.
Think that’s about it from me. Back to you Ray!
INTEGRAL for the 1st April have two CAN reissues on MUTE/SPOON records…the reissue of the hugely influential debut album “ monster movie” on indies blue vinyl ( one press only) a band that were ahead of their time in lots of ways ,,,imagine first hearing this in 1969…thats if you have 20 minutes to spare
CAN also reissue compilation album of “ soundtracks” on clear purple vinyl.
Sin e really folks for this week
Thanks as always for listening
Ray, Shane and young Adam.
