Wow. Quarter of the year gone already. Where DOES the time go? Yeah, it's a couple of days early, but so what; I never bought into that "patience is a virtue" nonsense anyway. Besides, I'm pretty much done for the month. (i.e. the money ran out ) New stuff: Boris - Boris At Last (-Feedbacker-) (EEC reissue) Merzbow - Senmaida Soft Machine - Facelift Soft Machine - Somewhere In Soho The Birds - Birds Birds Birds In The World (first edition w/ 3D cover) Joseph Holbrooke Trio - The Moat Recordings Keiji Haino & Tatsuya Yoshida - New Rap The Fall - Fall Heads Roll (US edition) Sun Ra - Heliocentric Worlds Vol. 3 Frank Lowe & Eugene Chadbourne - Don't Punk Out (CD reissue of an old LP I never owned) Bjork - Inside Bjork (DVD) The Hafler Trio - The Moment When We Blow The Flour From Our Tongues (10" LP) The Hafler Trio - The Concentrated Recapturing Of Thought (10" LP - with the lables on the wrong sides! I HATE it when that happens ) Bruce Gilbert & Ron West - Frequency Variation (LP) Anthony Braxton - Compositions Nos. 175 & 126 (acts 1 & 2) CM von Hausswolff - Strom Sachiko M - Bar Sachiko Taku Sugimoto - Live In Australia Diane Labrosse, Martin Tetreault & Haco - Lunch In Nishinomiya Evan Parker, Keith Rowe, Barry Guy & Eddie Prevost - Supersession (an original pressing WITHOUT the IFPI code! I LOVE it whe that happens! now I can pretend that I got it when it first came out, and didn't procrastinate like some loser (see what I mean about patience?). Merzbow - Tumeric (special "artists edition limited 100 copies" 5 disc box w/ bonus DVD, t-shirt, cards, stickers and a metal lunchbox) The Hafler Trio - Where Are You? (regular edition (the deluxe edition costs 100 pounds + S/H + customs. sadly, it's just too much of a luxury to justify)) Stock Hausen & Walkman - Hang-Ups (7") The Hafler Trio - A Ec Ad, Halda Afram? The Hafler Trio - No More Twain Of One Flesh: 11 Unequivocal Obsecrations CM von Hausswolff - Leech Kaoru Abe & Sabu Toyozumi - Senzei (To Be Free From Old Costume And Restraint) (LP) Upgrades: David Bowie - Stage (DVD-A) (replacing the old Rykodisc CD, which replaced the RCA CD, which replaced the old UK yellow vinyl) David Bowie - Serious Moonlight (DVD) (replacing the old laserdisc, which replaced the old betamax) Bjork - Vessel (DVD) (replacing the old VHS) The Hafler Trio - A Thirsty Fish (remastered 2CD set replaicng the old Mute CD which was edited to fit a single disc (side 3 went AWOL) and the original 2LP set (which I held on to to keep side 3 that didn't get aluminized) - anyway, now the whole thing's available on CDl complete) Van Der Graaf Generator - Godbluff (replacing the old Virgin CD, which replaced the Dutch pressing of the LP I used to own. And, yeah, it sounds like a compost heap smells, but I really need those bonus tracks) Derek Bailey & Han Bennink - Selections From Live Performances At Verity's Place 16 & 17 June 72 (replacing the old LP) (* not even sure if this is legit; it's only a CD-R with a VERY weird handmade-looking cover, not similar at all to every other Organ Of Corti disc I have - either it's a pirate edition or the label just started making CD-Rs rather than press new ones (but wouldn't they just use the regular covers?)) okay, that's all. What did YOU guys do to keep America's economy healthy this month?
