Ultradamno, Sunday there was a full page in The LA Times Arts and Books section about the record and band. In conclusion, John Doe observed wrighly that some rich people were saying we're all in this together, then retorted No we're not. you're on your boat and we're over here. The lead piece on the front page that day was about rich people swarming into Sedona in their private air force and hogging all the toilet paper.

I believe the maths sum anti-bot check is desktop browser only - you won't see it on the mobile app. It's (sadly!) configured to ensure no sum involves an increase in the 10's place, ergo gets a bit boring.

Ya, the Andamese and Nicobarese are quite interesting - I bribed my way onto those islands in the late 90s for a project (shhh). Currently I'm not there but amongst the Hokkien Chinese (with thai or malaysian passports) and the "sea gypsies" (Moken).

Seems like Stereolab reissued a lot of their catalog in bespoke vinyl but not “Peng!”

stereolab.bandcamp.com...

I remember working a crappy office job and going to Kim’s on Bleecker and buying the “Too Pure” import of “Peng!” for maybe $24 and it was a tough buy. Barely had any cash.

But got the first “Switched On” collection via “Slumberland Records” mail order (for like $10 or $12) and being blown away.

Anyway… The weird thing about Stereolab’s vinyl reissues is I always saw them as CD band.
