saturday in the dark

blew some cash this afternoon on discs, although it could have been alot worse. bought nina nastasia's The Blackened Air in anticipation of not seeing the show. also picked up francoiz breut's Vignt a Trente Mille Jours. the darla records samplers are always "a treat" for $6 (the middle listing at the bottom). for my oldies buzz i picked up fairport convention's Heyday: BBC Sessions 1968-1969. and finally despite my waning enthusiasm, i couldnt help but grab the sleater-kinney pre-release promo for One Beat. and i also couldnt pass up a $10 North by Northwest dvd.

among the many other items consider but passed over were:

1) Bright Eyes -- Lifted, or The Story is in the Soil... (clip)

2) Gram Parsons -- Live 1973

3) Les Sans Culottes -- The Ennui and the Ecstasy

4) Interpol -- Turn On The Bright Lights

5) Lee Hazelwood Tribute Album -- Total Lee

6) T-Rex -- Dandy in the Underworld
