"You're not going to like this. It's a television commercial they recorded for a record shop - The Toowong Music Centre, Nelson. It's on page 67 of the David Nichols Go-Betweens book. It was a song they appear to have made up on the…"
"Ooh, interesting. It's nothing I recognise. I've had a quick scoot through the 78-79 lost album and the extras on the Send Me A Lullaby set and it's not on there. I'm wondering if it's Robert Forster (it is him, isn't…"
"Too many to sensibly list, so here are five. Supercharger - Icepick 7" on Pre-BS. The aforementioned Teengenerate release on Wild Wild. Buzzcocks' Love You More on United Artists. The Undertones - You've Got My Number (Why Don't…"
"I know Edwin "The Savage Pencil" Pouncey was working on a book about Detroit Music a long while back but it doesn't seem to have appeared anywhere yet. Not directly helpful to your query, but it may eventually appear."
"Thanks for reprinting that. Albini usually was an interesting read. I don't suppose you have a copy of the column he did where he explained his 'pricing method' for charging bands (sometimes colossally) different rates for his…"
"I have an MP3 blog, All I Want. It was originally meant to be for 7" singles only, but the temptation to add some LPs, 10" EPs and the very occasional 12" single, was too strong. I also mean to add some more scanned fanzines when I…"
I work for a shady, arms-length government organisation so top secret and so hated I have to hide my identity in order to protect the safety of my children, Chalfont and Tarquin. I'm 48. I like drinking.
Favorite Music/Influences (list some bands, musicians, genres, etc.):
I enjoy poorly-recorded music recorded by ordinary Joe Schmoes with great record collections. I like it fast, I like it short, but most of all I like it on vinyl. The Fingers, Buzzcocks (Devoto-era in particular), The Phantom Surfers, The Reigning Sound, The Arch Villains. _That_ kind of thing.
Willy Wonka. Waiting For Guffman. Watership Down. White Dog. And that's just the W's.
Child-wrangling. Not buying shoes.
Favorite Show(s) on GaragePunk Pirate Radio:
I haven't listened to any yet but as I just got an internet radio for the kitchen the time may be right.

"I love Bubblegum! People talk about the music of the late 60s-70s like it was all Janis Joplin or Jimi Hendrix, but Bubblegum is what actually got played on the radio (AM, at least). It was one of the only styles that kept to three…"
"I looked for 20+ years for The Prisoners "Thee Last Fourfathers" and "A Taste Of Pink" LPs before finding them for...not TOO much $ on the ebays. Now I'm just waiting for that copy of "Stormy Weather" by The…"
