Could have spent a lot longer wandering around Space and @evileyevinyl inside @majortomssocial in Harrogate today. As it was I settled for a couple of 7” singles. Proper vintage blast.

Street scene, Sancti Spiritus, Cuba. Bold, bright colours everywhere. I’ll go back someday.

Waterlooplein Metro Station, Amsterdam. No records for a couple of days..having a detox. It’s killing me already.

Stax/Volt Revue Volume 2 - Live in Paris.
One of those live recordings that makes you just wish you’d been there to witness it. Sleeve notes state ‘Carla Thomas moved, sang and danced..everybody’s model of the original singin’ swingin’ soul sister.’
Greatness in every groove.

Throwing things back a terrifying 34 years to September 1984 and my first day at secondary school. After discussing photos of me that should carry safety warnings earlier this evening, I thought I’d post one that (other than being embarrassing), won’t give children nightmares. Full of hope and enthusiasm.

The Kinks - Lola vs Powerman and The Moneygoround, Part One.
Spent way too much time talking today..even more than usual, so I’ll dispense with anecdotes other than to mention this features two of my favourite links tracks in Lola and Apeman. Sweet.
‘I think I’m sophisticated, cos I’m living my life like a good homosapien.’

Blavatnik Building - Tate Modern.
Taken on a siblings weekend with @polsterh and @cunninghamdaisy in the big smoke earlier this year.

Swan House Roundabout, Newcastle. 
There was something I liked about the contrast between the wispy clouds and vapour trails and the stark, straight, concrete lines of the bridge and car park.

The Real People - Self titled.
I distinctly remember one of the quotes about this album at its time of release..’like The La’s with machine guns.’ Always stuck with me. Features the epic mixtape favourite ‘Window Pane’, which has a storming intro....and I do love a good intro.
‘Seeing life through a window pane..feels like love but it’s not the same.’

Guardians Of The Galaxy OST - Awesome Mix Vol.2
Something nice and easy for Monday evening and a tribute to everyone, everywhere who has ever made or received a mixtape.

Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting.
I’m sure it’s been said before, but surely not EVERYBODY was Kung Fu fighting? I certainly wasn’t. Unless you count pretending to be Hong Kong Phooey, but I gave that up when I realised I was too big to change clothes in a filing cabinet and that try as I might, my car would never turn into a helicopter. I might add that to my Christmas list this year.
‘Make sure you have expert timing.’

Deacon Blue - When The World Knows Your Name.
I used to sit next to a girl in A-Level Geography who was a Deacon Blue über fan. Many a dull double lesson about the effects of physical weathering on our coastal landscapes was enlivened by deliberately provoking Deacon Blue vs The Charlatans/Roses/Mondays debates. We both agreed about The La’s though.

The Special Relationship - Alive and well at the epicentre of global politics...Marsden Allotments. A great venue for future Summit meetings surely. I wouldn’t recommend the local car boot sale though. Underwhelming.

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here. 
There was a painting of this cover (by a former 6th form pupil), hanging on the wall outside the Staff Room of my secondary school. It was there the whole of my time there. I never knew what it was, but found it fascinating. ‘Remember when you were young..’

More excellent quality scran picked up today from the @blackscorner pop-up stand in Grange Park, contributing to the (slightly surreal, but entertaining) Friends Of East Boldon Scarecrow Festival. Some splendid efforts on show.
