Back home for a brief spell, going to knock out a quick post again. And just to make it a little easier, there's goign to be a not-so-subtle theme throughout, see if you can pick up on it.

Jim Dine - Blue Clamp (1981)

More from Mr. Scruff again, this one's a cheeky bonus track included on the 10th anniversary edition of Keep It Unreal. A lot of the bonus ones are allegedly from early album sessions and they certainly fit for sure but they are a little unrefined in spots, my only complaint for this one is that it runs on a little longer than I'd like it too. Still, I'm not one to turn my nose up to more Scruff for my buck.

Second is a real throwback from years ago. I remember picking this one up after hearing a snippet of it in a David Fith cartoon circa 2007 or so. I have some other Svahn floating around on my HDD too, I should catch up with him and see what he's up to these days, he had a bunch of tunes up on his site last I checked.

Remember me moaning that the extended mix of Poison Lips was relegated to a B-side of an EP? Well that's not the biggest crime of the EP. No, it's that the headline track of the EP is probably one of the finest in Vitalic's catlogue and could have easily been put on Flashmob without sounding out of place. But I digress, I have it in my libary now, and you should too!
