Friday Random Ten

The Mendoza Line "31 Candles" 30 Year Low
Louis Armstrong "Lonesome Blues" The Complete Hot Five and Hot Seven Recordings
Dave Pike "Aphrodite" Latin Verve Sounds
Pere Ubu "Electricity" Ray Gun Suitcase
Syd Straw "Paper Maiche" Pink Velour
David Byrne "Something Ain't Right" (live) Hanging Upside Down ep
The Zutons "Not a Lot to Do" Who Killed the Zutons?
Elvis Costello "Waiting for the End of the World" My Aim Is True
Alejandro Escovedo "People (We're Only Gonna Live So Long)" Real Animal
Wilco "War on War" Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

bonus
Ryuichi Sakamoto "Replica" Playing the Orchestra

Relatively satisfying, very all over the map, and it's always good to see some recent purchases pop up. In fact, that Syd Straw might be my first all-album iTune download (it's only available that way). And if you like Straw, you'll like it. If you don't like Straw, I'm not sure I like you.

More double dipping and only one true gem in NMH (I know, but that's not my favorite BF song), but I did get something from new additions. The girls from Manchester ("Three girls, three years, three chords") put on a hell of a show, along with Cars Can Be Blue and two local bands, at the local pizza place Wednesday night.
