So after a spell of being insanely broke, and having to spend my fat tax return on moving out of a fucking nuthole building early, I scraped up 50 bux and went to the rekkid shop for the first time in ages. Here's what I got:
Lamps LP - totally freakin' dig it. this broke my new apartements cherry for first record played in it.
Krunchies LP - probably my favorite out of the bunch. owns my face. majorly.
Candysnatchers s/t LP - been looking for this since I broke my copy when I moved into the last nuthole building. I love this record, even if it makes me a 'rawk' dork or whatever the new insult is. great band, brings back fond memories of when I could afford drugs. used for $6
High Tension Wires LP - I kinda don't like one song on this, but love the rest. really great album. I think if Mike Weibe wasn't in this band, more people would fall all over this thing, but instead the Gambler hata's tagged it as verboten. Me likey very muchy.
Ghettoways LP - lovin' it. the songs I found on the net way back when either were different versions (slower) or my turntable is off a bit. No matter, both versions get thumbs up.
Johnny Vomit & Dry Heaves 7" - I probably would like this, if it wasn't for the fact that there is a perfectly straight groove cut across the disc right across the middle making it unlistenable. In my sabbatical from purchasing records I forgot my code to inspect all unsealed records for defects before buying. Is this a pressing error (anyone else have this?) or is my luck just continually going downhill and I should just revel in the fact that I am eternally cursed?
I planned on buying some more records (Battleship 12", Viva...Deathray LP that got busted up in last move, Dutch Masters 7", VEE DEE on vinyl, tons more), and also finally sending Goner Boards own motorhoney some scratch for a fine piece of art that was planned back in January...
..but my neverending curse decided to rear it's ugly head once again this morning and drop a bill for $675 in my lap for a complete front end brake job on my truck. Fuck. My. Goddamned. Luck. If anyone needs me, look in the oven.
I still love my new records!
