This week in LUUML borrows.

1. lovesexy, because prince. I have found 4 prince albums so far. This the second best one of those. (the other three are, in order fave->less fave :  Sign “O” the times,  around the world in a day,  Love symbol)

2. Done by the Forces of Nature by Jungle Brothers. Class golden era hip hop. Someone borrowed black sheeps first album during my shift after i mentioned it to them so it’s made me check out other native tongues stuff. I’m listening to it now and it’s proper mint.

3. Bangles - Different light. Solid pop record. Bangles are class. gonna get their debut next week and see if i can find anything else by them. I might donate my walk like an egyptian maxi single to the UML too (it’s got a really bizarre “dub” mix on it).

GONNA MAKE THIS A SERIES. proper blogging?

Patxi didn’t get thrash out this week.

newoceanwaves:

check out this 80’s thrash triumvirate I’ve borrowed from  the LUUML. I can relive my teenage thrash years as if I was a genuine 80’s thrash kid.

I’ve also curated a “patxi’s pix” (sic) vinyl section which at the moment consists of all the 80’s thrash and prince albums i could find (8 thrash, 4 prince), the lexicon of love by ABC, the strawberry switchblade s/t and 2 bangles albums.

Glad to be back at Uni because primarily, I’ve missed my beloved Music Library. Just the best place ever.
