Rejuvenation Unboxing – And…Shortchanged?

For those, like me, who can’t get it yet…but would just like to experience the feel of the unboxing…
(Actually didn’t take in that Big Music STILL doesn’t come as the deluxe format on vinyl…even though it is spread over 2 LPs. COME ON! I just assumed because the deluxe version is now back on Spotify, it was the deluxe version on vinyl. But from what  I saw in the unboxing…it’s still only the standard issue. If it’s about space for the grooves, well, by comparison WBW has four songs on each side of the first LP and then the three bonus “deluxe” songs on one side of the second LP on the blue (and Ltd Ed fuchsia) vinyl edition. Okay, there are SIX extra tracks on the Big Music deluxe CD – but Bittersweet and Liaison needed to be on the reissue. Seriously! If you could add Too Much Television to B&W 050505, why not have added those two to the Big Music vinyl? WTF?!)

Special Delivery

Back in the summer, Mr Burchill ordered himself a beautiful Spanish guitar in Grenada. Today, the maker of the guitar, Valerio, delivered to Charlie said guitar to a recording studio in London.

Cherisse and Thomas were there to film the delivery. And… someone else popped in to have a gander as well…

(Kerr) Elf On The Shelf – Day One

With exactly two weeks to go until Christmas, I was looking for some kind of Christmas themed inspiration for the blog. Talk of ears happened today…Jim’s ears, and my endless fetish…and that was all it took for the spark of my very own Elf on the Shelf!

So here is Day One of (Kerr) Elf on the Shelf – Haaaad to be about doughnuts, right? 😉
(Thanks for the inspirational spark – you know who you are.)

Minds Music Monday – Waterfront

I wanted to share something that isn’t so obscure in the Simple Minds canon today because – one: it was pretty much the first song of theirs I fell in love with way, way back in 1984 – two: on a reflective note, as we come to the end of 2018, I still have to pinch myself that I actually saw them where this video was made. That not only have I now seen them twice in their home city…but got to see them give a full live debut airing of a new album in this hallowed turf – the Barrowland Ballroom.
