This Was Supposed To Be A Celebration! (2007)















"Hey, wasn't this blog supposed to close like months ago!?"

Well, yes it was, and it is. This is the final post (no, really, this time this is it). Requests and comments are now closed. Enjoy this last offering. Plenty of great noise to keep yourself (and the neighbours) awake. This compilation has a different recording of 'Jesse Jane' (track #9), faster (and better imo) than the version on the To/From 10" EP.

Pop American Style (1996)















If you want to know how some 7" single ended up in my collection, look no further than this fantastic double CD compilation from March Records. In the pre-internet days compilations were a good introduction to the world of independent artists. Of course now with YouTube, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, etc. the amount of music that one can sample freely is infinite. Compilations are still relevant though, simply because you're more likely to find music that suits your taste already grouped together.

Tompot Blenny ‎- Green Is The Best Colour (1996)














This CD combines Tompot Blenny's first two singles on Shinkansen Recordings. Both releases are mixed though. Tracks 2, 4 & 5 belong to the band's first single, and in my opinion should have been kept together. The atmosphere is different on both singles and mixing them such as is done here doesn't work well. Otherwise these are trully beautiful songs.

Artist: Tompot Blenny
