raining tapes..

it's wet and cold and horrid still, and me and the monkey are fed up, fed up i tell's not that i want it to be baking hot, not in the least..but i wouldn't mind a bit of dryness..this damp is doing my head in..not only does it mean that i am even less motivated to do any work, but it means that wimbledon keeps getting rained i did just watch andy roddick storm his way through the 2nd round with no hint of a drizzle, so that's something to be thankful for, i suppose..

nonetheless, i have been cheering myself up by digging out my walkman and listening to old compilation tapes..flavour of the week is this one,
which was made for me about ten years ago by a girl i used to write to in my fanzine days called terri..she lived in durham and had an amazing mini-zine called 'irksome the cat'..i can't remember her surname, and have no idea where she is now, but listening to this tape has made me realise that she had quite an influence on my current music tastes..for example, i was introduced to milky wimpshake thanks to her inclusion of 'clicking it' on the tracklisting - i remember falling completely in love with it and rewinding it over and over again..this tape also introduced me to bikini kill ('reject all american'), cat power ('headlights'), the slits ('animal space') and mecca normal ('paris in april') among it opens with a full recording of kenickie's awesome 'catsuit city' e.p. ..definitely one of the best compilations i have ever received..
