Talking of Amazon, Dyna, I just received:
Faith No More - The Real Thing (long-postponed replacement for knackered vinyl, and includes War Pigs too!)
The Cult - The Best Of Rare Cult
Ian Brown - Solarized
The Cult - Pure Cult (DVD)
The Cult - Live Cult (DVD)
(Yeah, I'm filling in the blanks on my Cult collection at the moment)
Marvellous. The "Best Of Rare Cult" album is annoying the bejesus out of the neighbours right now, and I hope they appreciate it - it's even better than I thought it would be.
Plus, I found someone on Amazon selling a secondhand copy of "The Manor Sessions" - another classy rarity that I had "knicked". It's the album that comes after "Love" and before "Electric" - ie, it bridges the gap between melodic poppy-goth Cult and their ACDC-Rick-Rubin-babies phase. It was never properly released, most of the material was later re-recorded with Rubin in that "stripped down" form for Electric. So that's been purchased now, too.
In perhaps more important news, today I got my mortgage approved for the house. So that's it. Bar some legal exchanges of shit, as long as I give the solicitor the deposit, the house is mine. I expect to move in at some point in the next 4 weeks, and you lucky scamps will be able to see pics shortly thereafter.
And if anyone wants to come round for a beer once I'm in, you're welcome. But you'll have to share the spare bedroom with my guitars, drum pads, amplifiers, PA system, keyboard, recording desk and Kelly Brook calendar. (Somehow I doubt the latter is going to prove too much of an inconvenience). The spare room being the one furthest away from any humanity, it is hereby nominated "home studio" room. Ta-da!
edit: Woohoo 4000 for you, too!
