Ah yes, I wondered how the charges work. I guess it makes sense that they update in batches rather than continuously as that would be a lot of work. Cheers discogs expert!

@john eden - you have been good on discogs so far so can I ask a question? We sold a copy on discgos the other day so I thought that the record of sales and stuff (where it says "last sold" and "median price" and so on) would update automatically but it doesn't, why is that? I mean presumably discogs complie that information for most releases, it can't be down to the seller, or do I have to register the sale somewhere for that info to change?

I think it updates after you’ve paid your fees to Discogs. Otherwise, in theory, you could create a fake profile and “buy” a load at an inflated price, generate real sales based on the inflated price, then cancel the fakes before paying fees.

Nice little review type thing here...
My copy of Jaguar No Me's Misekake LP landed a little while ago. Full disclosure, I'd have bought it anyway cos Rich and Liza are friends and I make a point of supporting good endeavours by good people when I can.
Fuck me though - it's flat-out amazing. I waited til I got the vinyl before giving it a proper listen despite having the files because I'm weird like that - I suppose we all are a bit. Anyway, although it's had to take a back seat occasionally when I've had something to review, it's been a pretty much constant listen when work has allowed. Impossible to pigeon-hole, endlessly inventive and incredibly rewarding.
If you haven't given it a listen yet, I wholeheartedly urge you to do so. It's fucking brilliant.

I did, about a week back! Then took me some time to get the speakers set up in the new house. It sounds good! I've only given it a spin last night. The cassette's a bit lo-fi but it's appropriate, I can always hear the hi-fi on the computer anyway!

Oh good, that's good news, I was actually afraid it was lost in the post so that's a relief. Gotta say, I dunno about the tapes cos that's all Taishi, I hope it's all ok quality and everything... like the packaging etc?

There is an article here about the band, album and record label of the year on the blog It's Psychedelic Baby (I think that's meant to be a phrase one might actually say to describe something, rather than a young child below the age of a toddler who is glowing in various bright colours and giving you some weird visuals)

Let me know what you think of the really in-depth interview and remember that the record will make a great stocking filler for the psychedelic baby in your family.

Kinda funny, I go to the PO to send a record, but, cos Portugal is so badly hit by the virus and stuff they've brought in new rules to send packages. Woman at the PO says it's too much for her English to explain and it's definitely too much for my Portuguese, so she phones her husband who speaks perfect English, he starts asking about the package, I say it's a record, he says "ooh, really, I'm into records" and he asks me what kind of thing it is and he says "Ooh Japanese psych" and then he starts telling about how 25 years ago he brought one of Acid Mothers Temple to play in Portugal - this is all on speakerphone as the queue gets longer and longer. Seemed like a nice guy. Took ages to send the package, by the time I left there were literally thirty people queuing out of the door and down the street... gonna be perona non grata in this town if I'm not already.

Another mention here.....


Khruangbin continued to channel world music through a trident of psychedelia, soul and funk with Mordechai, quite possibly their most impressive album yet, while former Fat White Family bassist Taishi Nagasaka released an under-the-radar gem of startling psychedelic punk, Misekake, under the guise Jaguar No Me.

Was carrying a pile of records yesterday and I walked past this cafe in Graca when this guy started shouting at me.... at first I ignored him cos I thought he might be having a go at me cos I had (accidentally yet still unforgivably) left my mask in the car and was sadly covering the few hundred metres I needed to travel with totally bare-faced cheek. However, it turned out to be good news, he ran out of the cafe and started asking if I had vinyls for sale and so I replied in the affirmative (I'm not one of those purist pedant types who gets incredibly worked up by the word "vinyls"), he followed up with "what kind of stuff?" and once I mentioned the word psychedelic the sale was mine. Girlfriend walked past the place that afternoon and he had already placed it lovingly on the wall, in the most important and honorable place right above his china dog. I wonder if he's listened to it.....
