Here’s a list of records I’ve bought recently (all second-hand obviously). Some dubious ones!

John Foxx – Europe After The Rain 12″

Ralph Towner – Works
Human League – Fascination 12″
Various – New Electronica – American & European Technological Innovations Vol 1
Prince – For You (got it on CD already)
Various – Sounds Of Soweto (unlike the quality Streetsounds collections, this is all dodgy 80s stuff, but it takes me back and I kinda dig it).
Taste – Live At The Isle Of White

Jan Garbarek – Works (keep buying stuff like this when I know I’ll hate it)
Yazoo – Nobody’s Diary 12″
Nik Kershaw – Human Racing 12″ (no excuse!)
Narrated by Robert Marshall – Americans (patriotic spoken word bollocks – still sealed)
Malcolm McLaren – Would Ya Like More Scratchin 12″ (got another version of this somewhere I think)
The Four Horsemen – Nobody Said It Was Easy (Rick Rubin produced metal boogie stuff)
Tricky Disco – Tricky Disco Remix 12″ (scratchy remix version to go with much-loved original 12″)

Hamilton Bohannon – Let’s Start The Dance 12″ (another copy somewhere)
Scritti Politti – The Sweetest Girl 12″

The Mood – Passion In Dark Rooms (dodgy 80s UK electropop)
RAF – Self Control (punishingly awful Italian pop version of the Laura Branigan outing)
Midnight Star – Engine No 9 (bought it for the haircuts)
Couchois – Couchois (terrible 70s rock – haircuts and laughably bad lyrics)

Plus 5 Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci CD singles that I can’t be arsed to list.

It’s not so much the quality as the quantity that’s so shameful. I think there’s only about 5 things on the list that I actually genuinely feel chuffed to have.
