Love You Bargain Bin

I don't know much about Thompson Twins beyond the hits.

So a bargain bin find was a good time to delve deeper into their music.

I feel like I'm twenty years too late. But that's okay.

Thompson Twins - In The Name of Love. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

Another Never Forget

I think I already posted this. A search of my posts says otherwise.

Inspiral Carpets are another one of those bands that seem to be fading into obscurity. At least among people I know. It might not be the case elsewhere in the world.

I think it's because people don't consider them one of Manchester's "heavy hitters." Which is a shame, because I think they are a pretty important part of that scene.

Inspiral Carpets - Commercial Rain. Used.

Go Buy It

Wavves - Wavvves. New.

Making Believers

Everyone doubts Frankie. Until they really dive into Frankie.

I made a believer out of my brother. Who in turn is making believers out of his friends.

Believe in Frankie.

Frankie Goes to Hollywood - Reload! Frankie: The Whole 12 Inches. Used.

Serious Actress

HBO would air Who's That Girl over and over. And over again.

I have watched it more times than I care to admit.

And I like it more than I care to admit.

The Range

The album is fine. I enjoy it. But I'm in it for "The Way It Is." And you should be too.

Even though I might prefer Tupac's interpretation of the song.

Bruce Hornsby and The Range - The Way It Is. Princeton Record Exchange. Bargain bin.

The X Factor

Now that The X Factor has started in the U.S. I can't help but think how much better it would be with Cheryl Cole eye candy.

Girls Aloud - Long Hot Summer. Used.

Buy Happiness

I think I bought this over a year ago. And I'm only now posting about it.

Hurts should be bigger.

Hurts - Wonderful Life. New.

Bargain Rules

I like buying the Air Miami stuff because it tends to be considerably cheaper than Unrest compact discs and records.

Air Miami - Fuck You Tiger. Used.

The Search

It always surprises me which Sub Pop singles I find digital copies of without a lot of effort. This is one.

I have the most difficulty finding what I would consider to be "bigger" bands.

Seaweed. The Spinanes. Hazel.

Perhaps they aren't "bigger" bands. And I have a warped perception of what Sub Pop was.

Love Battery - Foot. eBay. Used.

I Can't Find My Baby

I recommend dabbling in the entire Lisa Stansfield catalog.

But if you don't have the time or desire to do so, you at least need "All Around the World." So get it here.

Lisa Stansfield - Affection. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

Buy It, Really

Sometimes I debate whether I should or shouldn't post something. I guess I am.

But you should buy it.
