Sometimes Georgia's supply of used vinyl surprises me.
Cocteau Twins – Treasure
The Cult – Electric
Jerry Harrison – Casual Gods
Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians – Perspex Island
Hothouse Flowers – People
INXS – X
Joe Jackson – Laughter & Lust
Oasis – Definitely Maybe
Pet Shop Boys – Please
The Smithereens – 11
Squeeze – Play
World Party – Goodbye Jumbo
XTC – White Music
Oasis was obviously the big score, although I've been looking for the Joe Jackson and Squeeze albums for a while.
Also scored today!
Tom Waits - Small Change
Big Black - Songs About Fucking (!!, never thought I'd find this one)
David Bowie - Station To Station (yess)
Husker Du - Zen Arcade (yessss)
Joy Division - Permanent (one of the first CD's I ever bought but lost it along the way... glad to finally have it back)
I always love spreading the gospel of Boredoms. Glad you guys listened and loved it. Next time they tour you guys need to make sure to make it. They are so crazy good.
And great stuff there. If you're building up your LPs, I think that Big Black album is still readily available, and if not it's usually pretty cheap used at Amoeba. Such a kickass band.

Brigitte Fontaine's recent reissue is dope.
I just got William Onyeabor - stoked to get into that tonight.
Behemoth - And the Forests Dream Eternally
The Almighty Defenders - The Almighty Defenders
I went to the store looking for The Satanist, but it was $45 so I was happy to get And the Forests Dream Eternally for half that price.
This ain't no middle of the mall shit.
I don't get why they are charging so much for that record. I really wanted to get it, but 45 bucks is really steep
