Today’s awesome find was a remix promo (on blue vinyl!) of Everything But The Girl’s “Missing”—one of those songs you think you don’t know but you do. It’s the early 90s one with Tracy Thorn crooning the chorus, “And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain.” See? You know it.

The Police on vinyl—meaning Funko Pops, little vinyl figures from pop culture. Here’s Sting, Andy and Stewart laying it down. Great birthday gift from my kid!

Cleaning unused record photos out of my phone: The last of the Tears For Fears UK 12” picture discs that I needed to complete my collection—this one is for “Sowing The Seeds of Love.” Not as pretty as they probably thought it was. I will say, however, that I don’t know where picture discs get their rep for terrible sound—this one sounds amazing.

Cleaning unused record photos out of my phone:…

Cleaning unused record photos out of my phone: Go West’s biggest US hit, “King of Wishful Thinking,” never had it’s 12” remix released here. After years of wondering what the remix sounded like, I found a European copy on Discogs cheap enough to rationalize ordering it—and found out why: It’s boring. It’s a shame they couldn’t bring back Julian Mendelssohn, who did all those epic-sounding remixes from their first album; no doubt he would have knocked it out of the park.

Cleaning unused record photos out of my phone: Record Store Day makes for strange bedfellows—members of Queen and Foo Fighters on a never-completed solo track by late Beach Boy Dennis Wilson. And it’s actually pretty good. 


This one goes out to, well, me.

Primordial industrial dance music—it’s Age of Chance’s legendary cover of Prince’s “Kiss.” Has to be heard to be believed.

Managed to get into the Stray Cats’ homecoming club gig in Amityville, recorded for SiriusXM. They haven’t toured here the US for real in decades, so seeing them at all, much less from 15 feet away in a 300-capacity club instead of their usual 3,000-seat theaters, was a great big bucket list check off.

Almost showtime! This is a daydream, getting to see them in a 300-capacity club where they started out.

This is where I’m heading tonight—the Stray Cats hometown gig in lovely Amityville, NY (and the club is about a two-minute walk from the Amityville Horror house!).
