A mammoth session last night. One last blast before the whole system goes into storage for a few weeks. 

 

Kiss - The Age Of Chance

Kiss - Prince

In Rainbows - Radiohead

Morrissey, You Are The Quarry

The Red Shoes - Kate Bush

The Soft Bulletin - The Flaming Lips

True Stories - Talking Heads

Darklands - JAMC

For a few truly awful seconds then Charlie, I thought you'd been listening to the band Kiss. 

I can't explain in words how relieved I am. :grin:
