Rodcorp: London street signs

What a coincidence - but an hour before reading this I was walking through London Fields and noticed a similar “recording own history” set of signs for the first time: “MARTELLO ST / FORMERLY / xxxx ST” (I forget what name it formerly was unfortunately).

Said the Gramophone: i am so glad that you’re here

There’s stuff about the Numbers Stations all over the place, but this site seems to have quite a bit on them… http://www.spynumbers.com/

Said the Gramophone: a song for someone who needs somewhere to long for

I loved the first Kings of Convenience album, but thought it would be enough. More of the same would be overdoing it I thought. But you convinced me I should buy the new one, so I did, and it’s great. Thanks.

Music For Robots: rice and…

I rarely by any hip hop/rap stuff, but that’s an awesome track and I was pleased to find the CD in my local store. Thanks for the tip!

Largehearted boy: Tuesday Tune (Jack White Goes Country)

Thanks for the tip… I’m partial to a bit of country, but I probably wouldn’t have bought (or even heard) Van Lear Rose. Now I have it and I’m happy.

Said the Gramophone: like the weather

There was a time when ‘My Baby Just Cares for Me’ was all I knew of Nina Simone. It took a long time for me to realise how much more there was. The other day I ended up listening to ‘Just in Time’ on loop for the best part of a couple of hours, after hearing it in ‘Before Sunset’. Thanks for the tracks, as ever.

If Map Club were an experimental indie rock band, this group photo would be in the CD booklet of their first album.
