I'd never made it this far down the forum menu so was excited to find threads about interests other than footie. Some folks on here with seriously good ears too, in particular the Fall fanatics and the fella who rates John Darnielle and his Mountains Goats so highly - I couldn't agree more and find myself pulled back to his plethora of albums often, especially the raw Coroners Gambit and the lovely Get Lonely from a few years back.
Spending so much dough of footie and vinyl, I don't get to many gigs these days but was lucky enough to see Emeralds at The Camp in London in October...awesome sound, somewhere between drone and synth, and so loud. Mark McGuire's guitar playing was exquisite. Also saw Gonjasufi, Oneohtrix Point Never and Mulatu Astatke this year as well as going to Latitude which wasn't as good as previous years but still one of the best festivals alongside the Green Man.
I recently put up my 2010 top 10 albums on Norman Records of Leeds website where I grab most of my vinyl so for anyone interested, here it is:
1. Demdike Stare 'Liberation Through Hearing' (Modern Love)
2. Gil Scott Heron 'I'm New Here' (XL) 3. ooOoO 'ooOoO' EP (Tri Angle) 4. Gonjasufi 'A Sufi & A Killer' (Warp) 5. Umberto 'Prophecy Of the Black Widow' (Not Not Fun) 6. Joanna Newsom 'Have One On Me' (Drag City) 7. Matrix Metals 'Flamingo Breeze' (Olde English Spelling Bee) 8. Shangaan Electro (Honest Jon's) 9. Cold Waves & Minimal Electronics Vol. One (Angular) 10. Emeralds 'Does It Look Like I'm Here' (Editions Mego)
Anyone else for top 10's??
At this precise moment I am writing this and listening to Roxy Music's debut album...give me those first two records over any of the Avalon style shite they did later on
