Cover Mounting

Every so often, magazines and newspapers resort to mounting CD's in their weekend editions in a blatent attempt to boost sales. This happens so much that you can usually spot when the industry is on it's arse by the amount of music you gather in one weekend. At the end of the day though, there's only so many "Best of 60's Soul" and "Ibiza Disco Anfems" that one set of ears can handle. In late 2004, the Guardian started throwing up their attempts at a short set of 6 track compilations that while drifted on music left of centre, was still populist enough so not to alienate their core readership. October was the best one, with a grand total of 3 tracks that I really enjoyed - which then led to me purchasing the albums. And now, you can enjoy them too!

MP3 The Delgados - I Fought the Angels

MP3 Sons & Daughters - Broken Bones

MP3 Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - There She Goes, My Beautiful World

PS - And in news to likely only effect the geeks out there, it seems that Spider-Man has revealed his secret identity to the world. That's like people finding out Clark Kent is Superman. Bit daft that. More here.
