First of all, congratulations to the blog for making it 2,500 posts! In July I will have been writing this for nine years.
But you can only write a music blog if you’ve got good music to write about – and I get sent more of that than I can possibly listen to, never mind write about.
I mentioned earlier this week about Record Store Day, which is taking place on April 18. The NME have done a list of 25 of the ones they really want to get their paws on (and if you’re the kind of scumbag who buys these things up to sell them on*, you’re a scumbag), and there’s a whole website devoted to it, as well.
This is a fine cover of Depeche Mode’s ‘I Feel You’ as performed by Johnny Marr, which will be released as a 7″ for Record Store Day, backed with a version of The Smiths’ ‘Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want.’
Not a radical reworking, but subtly different when you listen to it closely.
Remember folks, a record store is not just for Record Store Day…
*the items themselves, not the list, obviously
