    While these days it seems you can trust very little, with propaganda and misinformation, conspiracy theories everywhere it does seem this is a genuine document as the source from where People Cube got it is a book by a professor in anthropology (or so it claims) published on Princeton University Press:
    http://press.princeton.edu/titles/8102.html

    But then... there are some academics who believe no planes were involved in 9/11 but it was instead cruise missiles disguised by holograms, and I have made no further investigation of how much of a nutcase this particular academic is or isn't.

    Long list but:
    1. Sex Pistols (punk, violence)
    2, B 52 (punk violence)...
    8 Styx (violence, vandalism)????
    12 Sparks (neo-nazi and racism)???
    15 Nazareth (violence, religious mysticism, sadism)???
    19 Pink Floyd 1983 - (against the foreign policy of USSR - Afghan war)
    20 Talking Heads - myth of the Soviet danger
    24 Donna Summer - erotica (very dangerous D. S.!)
    25 Tina Turner - sex (even more dangerous!!!)
    34 AND NOW THE TOP - Village People - VIOLENCE?!
    35 10 cc - neo-nazi
    38 Blondi punk, violence.

    And the year is not 1955 but 1985

    Didn't get to look at any singles, but you did well. Went back y'day afternoon for a few minutes and picked up a few more bits, but again, nothing sensational.
    I've been enjoying this lp I got there. Reminds me of a wimpier Pacific Ocean Blue. I especially like the way that even though there's a fiddle player on some songs he isn't on Hoedown and instead this peaen to a "an authentic western hoedown" has a lumpy but attractive orchestral melody to drive it.

    Fair was very cramped. The cheap boxes on the floor were hell to look at it.

    Picked up some 45s

    Troggs - Little Girl (killer b-side Maybe The Madman)
    Yardbirds - Little Games
    Manfred Mann - 5-4-3-2-1
    Paul McCartney - Coming Up
    Nancy Sinatra - How Does That Grab Ya
    Fairport Convention - Si Tu Does Partir

    and some collection filler LPs.

    Nice 45!

    No boot for me today unfortunately.

    Will hopefully get a chance to post up some recent finds soon!

    Made a disappointing house visit on Friday, looked through a large boxed of battered sleeveless Barry White/Supremes/Abba type 45s, and found a copy of this...



    a bit rough (to say the least), but plays nicely - what was it doing there?

    Bloody hell Hugh, we both go to South America and come back with the same LP's...

    At the booter today I found one of these...



    So have invited all the family to join me in a rendition of Da Da Da. Marvellous.

    I also found a Zimbabwean album that has an amazing cover that'll make all plussers go shame the music ain't all that to these cloth ears. Someone here'll love it so I'll trade it on later...

    A few bits and pieces I grabbed during a very rushed dig in Sao Paulo last week.

    Brotherhood were members of Paul Revere & The Raiders. They have one other album which is excellent:
