      Cheapo doormat find.

      Porcelain Raft - Strange Weekend Terrible Name but I liked the sound samples I heard and I'm enjoying the album a lot. Its all recorded by one American bloke in his basement, vocals, instruments, electronics effects etc it all sounds very lo-fi which I like and is swamped in Reverb to probably try and cover this up either that or he loves 'My Bloody Valentine' but that just adds to it's charm because he could easily try and bury his vocals in the mix but he doesn't. Song wise I like it I hear shades of 'Mercury Rev' at their most emotive mixed with 'Neil Young' if that makes sense. Its a lovely piece of outsider art, I say that in a loose sense because looking at his follow up release it seems he was polished up a bit and I much prefer the lo-fi aesthetic of this first release.

        "Interesting" sounding release any idea why there's no mention of it Mellotronen's site? I'll have to keep an eye out to see if any copies make it east over the pond. When did it come out?

          Some illsickbreakz on that Rusty Harness LP Paul.

          I was in a charity yesterday. Guy beside me kept looking over at me as I flicked. Loads of 12s by The Mission, The Cult and the odd LP ie We've Got A Fuzzbox. Stuff I'm not familiar with musically but better than looking through the normal chuff. The guy then picked up his stack of 50+ records and went to pay, a quid each. My heart sank at the thought of what he might have. Only thing I noticed was the Rocky Horror boxset. Oh well...at least I'll not have to deal with the hassle of more records in my house waiting to sell for a fiver or less and convince myself that he'd not got any really good or valuable records.

            PM'd you and eine contact details to Stefan Dimle who runs Mellotronen. I don't know why he hasn't put it up on his site.

              Fairly poor pickings today at the local car boot, but it did yield a decent copy of the Glen Campbell & Bobbie Gentry 1968 LP which I'm sure you're all familiar with, plus the 7-inch haul pictured above:

              Calibre Auto Recording - as detailed on the Calibre thread, this was a charming snapshot of a mum with kids I'm guessing from 1968 or so, judging by the brief rendition of Cliff's Congratulations

              Burning Bridges/You Gotta Be Mine - Mike Morton Congregation (1970) - I'm a bit of a sucker for this kind of brassy pop, and while the A side is fairly humdrum, the B-side is much better, a beaty groover enhanced by some lovely busy basslines and some parping brass. See below
              (Also spotted a nice Parlophone sleeve - pictured separately - which I'll team up with a Parlophone single)



              The Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem II EP - If I'm in the right mood then some jolly Irish folk complete with whoops, penny whistle and thick woollen jumpers makes me smile so couldn't resist this. Plenty of craic and Marie's Wedding which I've always liked. Minty too.

              Els Tinos - La Troca/Capvespre d'hivern/Les Dotze/Fes, Fes, Cami - This was the find of the day. First, I had to buy it because of the cover. Neon green frilled shirts, silly hats and a rolled umbrella - what's not to like. Worried it might be a dodgy Spanish covers outfit wacking out awful versions of Una Paloma Blanca or whatever was current in 1969, but was pleasantly surprised to find a mix of jazzy lounge pop and bossa nova with a cool edge and a slightly eccentric organ sound. Appears to be their only recording, and the couple on Discogs were priced accordingly. Minty and a keeper.

                      The VG+ view of Percy seemed pretty funk-centric. But I recall reading that some of his earlier stuff had its moments. Does anyone know their early Percy? If so, care to talk us through it?

                        In Paris for a few days now. My first encounter with tear gas!

                        Sleeveless Esoteric Circle from Porte de Vanves market yesterday. Was mildly tempted by Japo and Enja pieces. Perhaps I should have haggled. But my main aim is to locate mod class goodies.

                          I think if you go back pre 'singers' style Percy some of it is more of the 'Exotica' variety of which I believe 'Malaguena' is one that follows that vein. Its on my shelves I should dig it out for another listen.

                            Picked up a few more bits just before I went on hols and then did some trading yesterday, with a postbox find or two lobbed in.

                              (Whoops! Bloody 'Enter' key)

                              The above: Tale of two bootlegs. The Bowie one was recommended by a Plusser. It's amazing. Some of Ronson's riffage is pure savagery ('Width of a Circle' for example). The B52s has source material that is definitely edgier and has more energy than what ended up on the debut album, but the sound quality is dubious to say the least. Gustav Brom came from a trade with Gogo (nice one mate!) and the Muskrats was a very reasonably priced bit of Discoggery.




                              Above: All from Rob's Records. Top left is a jazzy bit of Nigerian high-life. I thought it might be an obscure bit of funky stuff, but no. It's not really my kind of thing, so if anyone wants to relieve me of it, feel free to PM. Ditto the Winter Consort LP, it's a bit too avant garde for me and I had to check to make sure that it wasn't some lost release by Mulligan and O'Hare (released contemporaneously with 'Titty Biscuits'). Baja Marimba Band is mental, but has one of the best versions of 'Eleanor Rigby' ever. Gordon Alexander sounded like a lovely bit of pop-psych, which I'd recommend based on first listen.





                              Yesterday was a visit to market to do some trading. Not at all convinced by Troll on first listen, but the pedigree is great - never really sure about that synthy library stuff though. The Sheep actually came from Rob's on the same visit as the preceding pic. Some ace Dusty Fingers-esque funky prog moves on here. 'Stormbringer' used up the bulk of my trades credit (it's a pink 'i'), but is also one of those albums that I can't believed I've managed to live this long without owning - fell in love with it immediately (and it's got Levon Helm on it FFS!). I got 'Clouds' purely because I heard 'Chelsea Morning' on the radio on the way back from Ambleside and decided that I couldn't possibly soldier on in life without possessing it.





                              Some chazza finds from a stop-off in Otley. The Archers is Xian stuff, with one femme vox, groovy folky track (however, this copy is ditched). Ray Ellington was amusing to find, right off the back of finding his other LP a week or so ago. Does anyone need to hear the hits of Bread, played on a harpsichord? Apparently I did. Freebies pile. And a spare of The Disciples.



                              Back to work tomorrow. Gutted. But I bet I put in a better shift than Wayne fucking Rooney.
