First time doing this for a while - it's good to be back!

Uriah Heep - Salisbury
Proggier I expected, with lots of waily waily vocals - great stuff!

Motown Chartbusters Vol 6
Got the CD for £3 in a 2nd hand place, and it's a lot of fun in the car. Always loved the cover (Roger Dean?)

Gorkey's Zygotic Mynci - Barafundle, Spanish Dance Troupe
I'd forgotten how much I love this lot - some very wonderful songs.

Twink - Think Pink
Greenslade - S/T
Brian Eno - Music For Films
The Zombies - Odessey and Oracle
David Bowie - Lodger
Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool

Vinyl:

Earthling Society - Ascent To Godhead
Essential. This is such a great album, and I keep returning to it. If you can get a sky blue version do so, it is a thing of beauty!

Domboshawa - Minds electrix
Loopy guitars and dreamy synths. Drone Rock records are releasing some fantastic stuff at the moment. Another gorgeous artefact too - splatter vinyl loveliness.

White Manna - Bleedin Eyes
Like if Hawkwind joined the Velvets and had a bit of a party.

Hotel Wrecking City Traders - Passage To Agartha
Noisy loud and spaced-out entertainment. Great double album, fab sci-fi cover.

Thijs Van Leer - O My Love
Good fun this, although not up there with classic Focus. Picked up 2nd hand for a few quid. I want some Jan Akkerman though, particularly Profile.

Blown Out - Superior Venus
To quote an acquaintance "fucking epic". And it is.

Working Man Noise Unit - Play Loud
This is just so bloody good, and currently the album is available for just £5 from Riot Season - £5!!!

The Janitors - Horn Ur Marken
The first thing I heard of this lot didn't grab me, but this album is something else. A pile of fun garage noise junk.

Stereocilia - Hive Mind
Saved the best until last. Another utterly beautiful Drone Rock Records splatter vinyl and cover combo, and the music completely lives up to it. Really lovely - sparkling.
