This seems to work on another forum i'm on, so maybe it will here.

What are you listening to? New purchases, or old gems... I've been reminded of stuff i own by seeing other folks listening to it. All the other threads in here seem to be about great bands that deserve their own thread.

Currently i've got Malcolm Middleton's 'A Brighter Beat' on the turntable. It gets better everytime i play it. (which isn't often enough),

Im listening to 'Andwellas Dream, Love and Poetry album' and I have to say it is one of the best albums ever! Brilliant all the way through and one of the most complete albums I know. One I always go back to time and again. If you havent heard it I cant recommend highly enough.

One of those rare bands for me, as in, I really like virtually everything they've done. From Tigermilk through to The Life Pursuit and all points inbetween. Musically, my favourites are If You're Feeling Sinister & The Boy With The Arab Strap. Sonically, Dear Catastrophe Waitress sounds fantastic as a hi-fi listen too.

Currently listening to The Raconteurs new album and Zappa's Them Or Us. Both wonderful in their divergent ways.

I think that their earlier stuff is fresher, tigermilk up to DCW is good, but i've not bothered with The Life Pursuit as i think 5 albums plus the LLPJ box set is enough! currently listening to Ben Godwin's Skin and Bone. A Glasgow born New York based singer/guitarist who sounds like a young Tom Waits. Brilliant! Big Smile

Just now (yes, as a serial insomniac I'm still awake!) - "Peaches" by Presidents of the USA - a classic I'd forgotten about till it just came up on my iTunes Party Shuffle! Oh, "Animal" by Def Leppard just came on.. sweet!
