ELVIS COSTELLO  "my aim is true"  vinyl/cd  1977

really?, this album is now forty years old!...
sort of been going through an EC thing of late so I should really post them...
his debut....
recorded over a twenty-four hour period...
four singles off this one,"red shoes", "less than zero", watching the detectives"
and the classic "Alison"...
the album has been inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame and is often
cited by rock critics as "the greatest debut album ever"...
either way, I love it

from the album, the classic "Alison"

Chamber/jazz/folk. Where does it go??! Lol!

Penguin Café, The Imperfect Sea. Just love it. 

The second track on this great live clip is my favourite from the album, I think. "Protection" - starts around 5.55, followed by the album opener "Ricercar" which is also fantastic. They are awesome IMHO!

PAUL DEMPSEY  "strange loop"  cd,  2016:

frontman for Aussie alt rockers Something for Kate....
eleven albums with them and this is his third solo outing...
album made it to #5 here in Australia...
alt rock sounds here, some verging on the side of Prog at times, but never quite getting there fully...
an intelligent songwriter and one who rarely releases anything bad.

from the album, one of the singles:

PAUL WELLER  "a kind revolution"  cd,  2017:

pushed this one to the front of the unopened pile...
thirteenth solo set, twenty-fourth over all (in forty years)....
a return to form of sorts after the last two or three 'non-weller" albums...
a rocker, funk, soul, dance/disco, ballads, social commentary..
dance track, a duet with Boy George, I don't like that track...
love the love song, one of his best ever IMO

THE LIVING END  "the ending is just the beginning repeating"  cd,  2011:

one of the last 'instore/ not for sale" preview cds I got off my mate Corey back in the day...
Aussie alt-rock band...
fifth album out of six I believe....
some good alt-rock tunes on here, some even border punk/rockabilly in places...
a good band, a good album that I would never have  bought otherwise...

from the album, my favourite track:
