preston power pop

I forgot to mention my Saturday afternoon visit to Off The Hip shop on Plenty Road in Preston (maybe 100m north of where it forks off from High St). I hadn't been there since last year some time, and it's still as quiet as ever, but they're still pumping out the power pop and garage rock. Where else can you walk into a shop and hear the Velvet Crush being played through the room? In last year's opening sale I picked up a few good things - The Moodists' Gone Dead 7 inch, Steve Kilbey's first solo single This Asphalt Eden, and one or two others I can't remember right now. This time around I asked 'em to try and get that new Rowland S. Howard / Devastations 7 inch for me. Maybe next time I'll let myself buy a t-shirt.

Hey, that's only 500m from my place. I'll have to pay a visit. -DFV
