Music from the stacks

Post by crumpart »

Occasionally Toshiro suggests that we get rid of all our CDs entirely and go full digital. We got rid of a lot of stuff when we moved overseas and kept one small shelf of music. I keep insisting that I want to keep it for a variety of reasons.

Now that we’re home I’m back to unpacking and organising the house after our most recent move, and I’m in the process of alphabetising the CDs. I’ve found a bunch in there that were never digitised, including this one that I bought at the Woodford Folk Festival in about 2002. It’s instrumental moody stuff with violins by a band called Trinkets and I still like it.

For a number of reasons this week I looked up Sherbet’s ‘70s hit Howzat, which I haven’t listened to for one billion years, and Jesus Christ that outfit is something, Daryl Braithwaite.

Ha! As coincidence would have it, I have covered that song. As part of a challenge very similar to Gift of Music, in fact!

Toshiro has been singing "the uncharted waters" to the tune of this all weekend. As it's one of my favourite songs of all time (in the top ten at least), I don't mind.

The Church, The Unguarded Moment

I've been listening through all of my vinyl albums while "working" from home (technically furloughed, but receiving extremely mixed messages) and I'm starting this week on S. Which began with an album I love unreservedly (Spiderland by Slint) and has now moved onto one I have far more mixed feelings about (The Smiths - Hatful of Hollow). Don't think I can separate the art from the artist any more in this case. One for the growing discard pile...

Fun project though. Tempted to go through my CDs next although I have probably ten times as many and it will result in things like having to listen to 22 Sonic Youth albums in a row so I might need to introduce a random element.

Oh cool! 'S' is going to take you a while, surely. It's definitely the letter with the most artists in our collection.

Most of my vinyl collection is made up of second-hand buys, so it's a pretty random assortment (although heavily weighted towards early 80s synthpop - Soft Cell and Spandau Ballet coming soon). I've been documenting them all as I go in this lengthy Twitter thread.

The thing I'm most excited about revisiting in the S's is this ridiculous slice of French synth-disco:

Yeah, Morrisey is stinking it up. Too bad, loved the Smiths big time for many moon.

Sold off most of my vinyl some years ago, but have a couple crates left. Good ideas, yos.

Also, I did a (fairly decent if I may say so) GOM cover of Ungaurded Moment for Caravan Ray a few years back. It's around here somewhere if interested. Good tune!

I used to do "blind pick: with vinyl when I had hundreds of lps. Shut your eyes, jam your hand in a stack and play whatever came out. Fun, if occasionally groan inducing.

Goddamn! I found the link but it was broken. Any chance you could repost it somewhere when you get a moment? Add your I See Red cover that was also mentioned in the thread to that and I’ll be absurdly happy.

Crumpart - I found those songs, MP3, and sent each separately via PM. Screwed up one of the PM headings. I don't have a hosting service at the moment, so I hope that works for you and if not, can send to an email if you'd like. I was surprised at how long ago I did them, but hey, time flying and all that. Give a holler if you need to and I hope that you enjoy them.

This song is one of my favorites! I love it so much. Maybe I'll put it up as a pick next time Gift of Music rolls around :)

I'm never sure if that's my favourite Muppet song or if this one from Sesame Street beats it...



They're both wonderful though!

Which leads me to one of my other favourite songs of all time. This is one of my favourite songs to play when practicing guitar.

The outfit could have been worse. He could have been wearing cricket whites and a Dennis Lillee moustache. Which would have been really creepy in the context of the song, where I picture him hiding in the cupboard watching his significant other having sex with someone else - and he jumps out with his finger up going "Ha ha! Howzat!!! Gotcha!!! Back to the pavilion for you!!" Or something like that....

It’s my goal in life to find footage of this now. I’d bet money that they dressed up in whites at some point.
