I just purchased the Trashcan Sinatra's recent release (after an 8-year absence). I've read a few favorable reviews, most making references to The Smiths <!--emo&:D-->Image<!--endemo--> . It's jangly-guitar pop at it's best. I've enjoyed it more than I expected.

I went to a record/cd fair on Sumday and bought a few classics which for some reason I hadn't got round to buying, namely:
Tigermilk - B&S
Radiator - SFA
Hour Of Bewilderbeast - Badly Drawn Boy
Vilage Green Preservation Society - The Kinks
Exile On Main St. - The Stones

Ooh, good thread!

Hmmm, that's quite tricky... I can't remember! I got two Smiths bootlegs a week or so ago, but I can't remember what the last proper album was! A few weeks ago I got:

Velvet Underground & Nico
Razorlight - Up All Night
The Clash - London Calling

But I'm sure I've bought some more recently than that *puzzled* Oh well, birthday soon, should be getting lots of CDs then!

Ooh, btw Elko, Tigermilk is amazing, I love it! Are you a B&S fan?

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

Aww, yay, glad you like it!!

Another excellent album to get is Dear Catastrophe Waitress. That and Tigermilk are my two favourite B&S album. Boy With The Arab Strap is good, but harder to get into...

I borrowed the Franz Ferdinand album off my friend, which I know isn't technically buying but anyway. It's so good, I wasn't that impressed at first, but I saw them on the Mercury Music prize thingy last night, and their live performance was amazing. So I listened to it again today, and it really is a great album. Plus it helps that on the Mercury prize, the lead singer was wearing eyeliner and leather trousers...

Interpol - Turn On The Bright Lights
U2 - Achtung Baby

ihav no idea why its taken me so long to purchase a copy of one of my favourite albums on cd. ihad a tape cassette originally and idont even know where it is now or if it stil workd even. ive had it on my comp forever too but always had planned on buying it eventually. 'Achtung...' and Interpol were on for 2/25$ so ihad to unclench my fist and buy them.

It was hard to find?! Really?? I got mine in HMV, they have lots of Smiths CDs on sale quite often. I don't know whether to be pleased because I can buy them cheaply (although I now have all of them (except all the bootlegs, obviously), so it doesn't matter too much anymore), or offended! <!--emo&:blink:-->Image<!--endemo-->

But anyway, yay that you've got it! The alternate Peel Session versions took a while to grow on me because they're so different (especially This Charming Man), but I love them now. The acoustic version of Back To The Old House is one of the most beautiful songs ever written, always makes me cry...

Ryan Adams kicks ass. Love Is Hell is excellent and try n track down the b-sides from the Love Is Hell sessions- theyre great too.

I believe my last music purchase was 4 albums by a band called the Sacred Hearts. Good rockabilly covers of classics. LOVIN' them!

The last one I actually bought for myself was The World Of Morrissey, £5, bargain! Hopefully getting Depeche Mode at the weekend too <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo--> I got the Ordinary Boys - Over the Counter Culture, Jackson Browne - The Pretender, and Ludus - The Damage for my birthday as well.

I absolutely love Ryan Adams! The only one of his albums I've actually got is Gold, which is an amazing album, but I've downloaded quite a lot of various other songs. My friend's got all of them, so I'm hopefully borrowing them off her at some point.
