Is there a relationship between Brian Brain and Go4?

This show is killing it - if this is what 12" single file sounds like, I'm all for it. The Cult - LOVE (pun totally intended)

I loved that song! Brian Brain

By the way, the 12 inch 45 RPM is my favorite single format, by a lot. It may be because a friend gave me his older sister's 12 inch collection back in middle school--Cure, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, just a goldmine.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, so much New Order. Changed my life.

I had a 12" single of This Corrosion by Sisters of Mercy. Would fit nicely into this set.

My 12in of ‘Hollow Horse’ by The Icicle Works was always a favourite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/11/18 10:54am karlward:

Some of the 12 inch sleeve have things like "good for cardio" written on them in pen. It doesn't even bother me, it's like looking at cave paintings.

FYI, the Archive of Contemptible Music has its biannual sale NOW (for another 2wks?), in tribeca. my friend wrote this: I got an X 12" ("Wild Thing") and Camera Obscura 7" ("The Sweetest Thing") with a Springsteen cover on the B-side for $6 total. I'm always glad to go.

@Diezel: Not that I know of, but he was in PiL for a while. @paul: Wish I had that. BTW, my set of 12" singles will be unapologetically 70s and 80s. I know there are great ones from later decades, but I didn't bring any. :)

i've entered the Bruce lottery about 20x. have lost about 20x. this serves to remind me to enter again. excuse me... i think Bruce got a Special tony award.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/11/18 11:04am herb.nyc:

big winner at the Tonys was The Band's Visit, which stars Tony Shalhoub, friend of Andy Breckman. (when wfmu re-aired the 7SD with a drunk ken interviewing tony shalhoub, i taped it. i think the show is not archived. pretty fun stuff.)

A vote for best 12" from the early '80s: Bauhaus, "Ziggy Stardust"/"Third Uncle".

Love it, Joe. Soca party! First encountered soca on WLIB in New York during the '80s -- only thing my AM car radio would pick up, but time well spent.

@HC: I need to buy more soca! It makes me so happy!
  Mon. 6/11/18 11:17am Dean:

Oh, yes, "Bela Lugosi's Dead" is quite the charmer, too. I never got deep into Bauhaus, saw them live once at the Roxy in Hollywood, but I really love those two EPs.
  Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/11/18 11:17am tadpoles:

@Dean...Bauhaus "Telegram Sam" 12" pretty good too.
