Personally I don't think 2014 has been a great year musically so I've been listening to mostly older stuff. I have 'discovered' PiL and Arthur Russell and have been loving 'em. Also been listening to a lot of stuff by The Fall, Can, Drexciya and DJ Sprinkles

I'd say that on average I spend about three hours a day during the week and about six hours a day at the weekend. On weekday mornings I'll listen to a vinyl single or two when I'm getting ready for work (Man On A String parts 1 and 2 by Shackleton this morning). I normally cycle into work but if...

So, I joined Facebook the other month (making me the last twentysomething in the UK to do so), and to celebrate I did a wee mix and stuck it up there. However, it didn't turn out to be a big hit with my Facebook pals (I've only got about twenty or so :slanted:) and I sort of forgot about it...
