You'll Never Guess What Santa Brought - 2009
Tascam DP004 - 4 Track portable audio recorder: This is going to really broaden my musical horizons. I plan to travel around Ireland recording the sounds of flushes from public toilets, which I will use to accent my musical compositions.
Behringer DR400 - Digital Reverb/Delay effects pedal: Technically I didn't "need" this but it's a much handier way of getting reverb and delay effects rather than routing through my Novation A Station. Still wondering if I should have gotten the Analogue Delay pedal though :-\
Sparks - Hello Young Lovers: I downloaded this on a whim one night a while back, it has become one of the most inspirational albums for me of recent times. "Dick Around" is a modern day Bohemian Rhapsody.
Hada To Hada - Pike: This is one of John Creedon's top ten albums of all time, and I can see why. It's been out of print from a few years but I managed to source a new copy. I was listening to Creedon's show one night and he played "Ed Winter" from the album, an absolutely haunting tune with catchy vocals and irrepressible lyrics. I then found the amazing title track up on youtube later that same night and since then I've been hunting down a copy of the album.
I got other scrappy bits too but I'm not putting up pictures of socks :)
