And so it goes.... 2011.

If it weren't for my good friend Gunther I wouldn't be pushed to writing. He has made me realize a potential of something that I never knew that I had and for him I thank him.

2011.... what will it bring me? Tons more vinyl of course! Let's list some recent goodies that I can remember for now:

Joy Division - +/- 7" box set
Off! - First Four 7"s
Teenage Fanclub - Bandwagonesque on black vinyl(waiting for my white vinyl copy to show up)
The Oblivians - Go Pill Popper 7"
Jefferson Airplane - Surrelistic Pillow (Purple swirled vinyl - pressing of 100 copies)
The 13th Floor Elevators - Psychedelic Sound Of... (Multi-Colored vinyl - pressing of 300)
Syl Johnson - The Complete Discography (6 LPs + 4 CDs)
The Rolling Stones - Exile On Main Street (2 LP Remaster)
Bruce Springsteen - The Promise: Dark Side on the Edge Of Town (3 LP set)
Nobunny - Love Visions

I have tons of great ideas for this year... including a book that I want to start writing. Who knows how long it will take to write it but no one ever complained that it was 10 years in between Boston albums. I've got nothing but time!

Discogs is my new best friend!

Until next time... and hopefully it will be sooner than later!



  1. Go for it! Write that book! I've been playing around with mine for something like 6 years, and I'm gonna kick myself if I don't finish it. You have that Springsteen set on triple LP? SWEET!

  2. OFF! are the new Black Flag. Think they've even got the same artist doing the cover shots.

    Sorry if I've been a nuisance about writing reviews, etc. Can't wait to read your book's first chapter!

  3. Angie,
    I must hear more about DISCOGS snd your friendship with whatever the hell it is.

    Also, I would like to know more about the book. Will ya maybe post some of the writings on Here?

    I'm currently working on a written project titled MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS OF POPEYE THE SAILORMAN. And yes, I will share a copy with you when finished if you like.
