Jan 21, 2015 Mrs. Fnarf commented on There Were Two Bands Called New Order!?!.
Back when I was just a wee lass in high school (and was, like, New Order's number one fan) I used to come across this LP occasionally in the bins, but I was never fooled. And it's probably a good thing, because the Ron Ashton version, to put it mildly, is not my cup of tea.

I miss DJ's Sound City.

@8 Yes you're right about the lack of content - but I think the last straw was Slog covering astrology (he was really pissed off about that). Also LineOut being merged into the main blog has something to do with losing interest (I do generally like reading Nipper's posts, though. We're old).
Oct 16, 2014 Mrs. Fnarf commented on The Fairest of Fairport Convention, Again.
Wow, I can't believe I've never seen this before (singing a Tim Buckley song even!) - only a month later Sandy Denny would be with them, recording their first session for John Peel's Top Gear program. That Eclection LP Fnarf mentioned above (vinyl copies are kind of pricey but the CD is cheap) is really good, more orchestrated than Fairport but with a very West Coast sound and nice harmonies.

@1 It's on freakin' GolTV actually, and who gets that?? At least Dishworld has an iPad app, so there would be no problem there.
Aug 1, 2014 Mrs. Fnarf commented on The Bluest Skies Are in Seattle.
Just barely remember this show, I was maybe a few years too young. It's shown early Sunday mornings (4 am) on Antenna TV (Comcast 340 or broadcast 22.3), for anyone who thinks they can sit through a whole episode.

@17 I think that's the same episode of F Troop with Lowell George & The Factory (later known as Little Feat) playing a band called the Bed Bugs?
Jul 2, 2014 Mrs. Fnarf commented on Heavier Than a Death in the Family: 4AD Announces Scott Walker/Sunn O))) Collab.
@6 there is a remarkable essay in the excellent "Pushing Ahead of the Dame" if anyone is interested in Walker and Bowie's intersecting/overlapping careers.

Jun 24, 2014 Mrs. Fnarf commented on What Is the MOST You've Paid for a Record?.
I've paid $50 for a couple of Scott Walker and Gene Clark LPs which is a lot for me - I consider myself lucky that the Northern Soul collecting bug has never bit (happy with just compilation cds for that stuff).

I'm in love with Cathy McGowan!

Apr 21, 2014 Mrs. Fnarf commented on Seattle "Record Stores Of Days Gone By".
@19 I loved Rebellious Jukebox, Nils wasn't afraid to stock twee pop and Orange Juice records (it was the early 90s, after all). I think he may have saved my life.

@20 Exotique started out as Mt. Olympus Imports, I believe. Lots of obscure English pop records, Depeche Mode, and prog.

But does anyone remember Corporate Records, set up in the corner of Time Travelers? Bought my first Joy Division 7" there, and used to make the trek in from Issaquah just to pick up the latest issue of the New Musical Express. I think it turned into Acme, before being swallowed up by TT.
