|LP bootleg limited to a 1000 copies. There's a cassette release as well|
As I mentioned a couple of posts back I've finally got a record player for the first time in 10 years. I spent all evening and most of the night last night going thru the olde collection and spinning old and new platters. "New" in the sense of having bought them during the ten year period and thus never actually been able to listen to them.
I spent like three to four hours dividing the collection into four groups:
- Old well known records that I bought in the 1980s and '90s
- "New" records that I bought post 2000 and that I have listened to
- "New" records that I've bought but haven't listened to
- Second hand records that I've bought but haven't listened to.
The three track OBLIVIANS 7" is as cool as I remember it. Like everyone else these days the Oblivians have reformed and are playing gigs. They first formed 26 years ago. Aren't garage-punk bands supposed to consist of disgruntled snotty teenagers!?
The PETER BELLI & BABY WOODROSE single won't mean much to you unless you're Dutch (or whatever the hell they are around here). Peter Belli was a wild rock 'n' roller in the 1960s. The Baby Woodrose guys thought his "Det du ka' li'" was cool and decided to make a cover using the original singer. He's an old guy now. The A side is a cover of THE MONKEES' "Steppin' Stone" but with new lyrics. It's kinda rare now. There's five copies on Discoqs ranging from 40 to 50 euros.
