Hello Pseu! Thanks for reminding me about that Autumn Leaves album. I picked that one up way back in the 20th century after probably hearing it here on WFMU!

This Wire song from the mid-80s will always sound futuristic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm McGroovey:

Not sure if this is a different mix of Cheeking Tongues than any I have, or if it just sounds different coming out of my mono radio speaker.

Turn it up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Hughie Considine:

@McG, sounded like the album version to me. Definitely could sound different in mono!

greetings, Pseu! Skeletons! Everyone!
been listening and lurking while working (nothing fun nor exciting, just boring tedious stuff like the EVIL LAUNDRY! but, all the more reason to love your show, it TOTALLY cancels out the boring stuff!)
even though i am embarrassed that i did not recognize them at first, i am SO GLAD The Psychedelic Furs are still at it! (my *obsession* with them was re-ignited when i heard Robyn Hitchcock's and Emma Swift's stunning heartbreakingly gorgeous take on "Ghost in You" years ago) -- DAMN! that "Tiny Hands" song is so freaking lovely! gotta check out the whole album . . .
