    Hi, Is this one MM & MC? Some butt shots would be nice too if you can. Thanks.

    Bravest thing I've seen on the internet today. I hope you feel better for sharing...

    Aussie Hip-Hop

    The Spotify Aussie hip hop playlist is definitely worth following. Updated regularly with new releases etc. I’m off to see Genesis Owusu and Remi over the next week or so. I think Remi is top notch. I’ve seen him live a few times now and never disappoints, builds a great vibe in the room without any sexist bullshit. Great voice and talented lyricist/mc. There’s lots of great talent giving voice to the reality of contemporary Australia at the moment. Sampa, Manu Crook$, Allday, Baker Boy (best live show I’ve seen in an age), Briggs etc. Get out there and support them.

    Beer: "proof that God loves us"

    I was lucky enough to be at the brewery a few weeks ago. Did a flight and settled on a Coastin’ IPA. They had just won an award for it a week before. Milk Stout was delish too. In the flight: Mt Eureka pilsener, Coastin IPA, Keep Calm and Carrion XPA, Double Cream Milk Stout.

    Another spin from yesterday’s delivery. Albert Mangelsdorf Quintet recorded after a trip to the east in 1964. Of it’s time with those early Euro jazz/world fusion but it’s a light touch on this album which owes more to Mingus than any Asian influences. Beautifully recorded with superb playing and arranging.

    Fresh delivery today and now spinning. Needs a clean, to get rid of the paper sleeve static.

    The Underrated David Sylvian (Ex Japan)

    Sylvian's Samadhi label reissued it a few years ago on CD. Probably discontinued. Check out Discogs.

    The Underrated David Sylvian (Ex Japan)

    The singer Thomas Feiner did a very moody album a few years ago called the Opiates with a band called Anywhen. Has one of my favourite songs, Scars and Glasses. Classic sad boy cryrock.

    FS: Croft RIAA Valve Phono Stage

    I saw and heard this Croft at Geoff's last weekend. Beautiful sound and great value. He's a gent to boot. Buy with confidence.

    SUT Upgrade

    Thanks to @GeoffRoberts for taking some time to play some tunes on his excellent system today. I was keen on hearing the Croft phono as it is on my shopping list of potential phonos. We switched in my ZYX head amp which wasn't a good match with the cart compared to Geoff's Hashimoto, but I also borrowed @Viognier Ypsilon MC-16 which was lovely. Beautiful air and decay on the notes, no doubt aided by lots of Earl's tubey goodness. Nice to meet you Geoff, that's a lovely system you are running.

    Wow what a great way to start the weekend , Ed Blackwell on Status Seeking is just mesmerising. Can’t believe it’s been so long since I listened to this. Better add it to the cleaning pile...

    I haven't listened to this for a long time. I think I'll dig it out and give it a spin. Thanks for the reminder.

    Recommend a first TT for a novice

    I'd be spending my $800 on this. http://www.krispyaudio.com.au/products/VPI-Nomad-turntable-pre%2dloved.html Cameron is well known on SNA, it will be a fuss free transaction for you.
