The Church - The Unguarded Moment

The Church - The Unguarded Moment : Well, I couldn't let this go, could I ? It now sits with my copy of the Sing Songs EP (sorta rare-ish) and my signed copy of the Remote Luxury EP.

The Go-Betweens - Send Me A Lullaby The Go-Betweens - Before Hollywood

The Go-Betweens - Send Me A Lullaby and Before Hollywood (the 2002 remaster/reissue with bonus discs) : They were only $5 cheaper than I've seen them anywhere else, but it was enough to make me think "ok, it's time." It's been so long since I'd put them on, too, and when Grant McLennan's bass snakes up like an old friend in Your Turn, My Turn it's enough to make me confess. I'm sorry I spent so much time recently merely remembering how good the Go-Betweens are/were instead of actually listening to them. All these little moments - the pitter-patter drumming in Cattle and Cane, Robert Forster's perfectly paranoid vocal delivery in Eight Pictures and the bit near the end of the same song where the drums kick in after the chorus, like a knee to the groin - these musical moments won't leave me. Please don't leave me.

"i recall
a bigger brighter world..."

Happy Australia Day.
