Friday Five: PJ Harvey B-sides.

Ok, I wrote this ahead of time because I'm on "academic vacation"  and I have no internet. This weeks Friday 5 is from one of my favorite artists, PJ Harvey. If you haven't listened to any of her stuff already, I highly encourage you to listen to her. PJ's stuff will blow your mind  and thats a good thing. I didn't want to just post some of her better known stuff because I wanted to expose you all to some "underground" stuff, so I went with her fabulous b-sides instead. Now, PJ hasn't "really' released her b-sides, but thanks to the wonderful internet, and some networking from some friends I have a good amount of PJ Harvey B-sides. To be honest, I haven't even heard all of her b-sides. Coming from this music fan, that's just crazy! I heard that she has b sides for just about every song that she recorded and that is just crazy awesome. Youtube has most of the B-sides that I favorites gone... so thank them and UMG  for taking all of the good unheard music form society. I really can't sum all of PJ's b-sides into 5 videos, so just contact me if you want to know more.  I hope you enjoy these songs/videos.

PJ Harvey - Driving

I haven't forgotten about genera mixes so I should have a genre mix for next Friday. Check back soon because I'm (still) working on the post of my music collection.

What I bought for 5 dollars.

Want to see what I bought for 5 dollars yesterday?

This is a Sonic Youth Murray Street poster. The guy at the vinyl shop said that it was "dented" but I really can't see the dent. There is some yellow at the top, but you can't really tell if you look at it from far away. (Yeah I know that I held this poster down with clear cd's but thats ok.)

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it (Its on my floor right now, right next to my CD stack). I might frame it and start to make a mini shrine in Sonic Youths honor, or  I could just just put it with my other band memorabilia. I think the later might be the best.

Check out the Friday videos, they will soon be a weekly installment.

(Check out my Murray Street album review)
