CD orgy

Went to Twisted Village in Harvard Square and discovered way too many cheap CDs.

  • Boards of Canada Geogaddi (2002). Meant to get it when it came out, but there was no way I was going to pay $17 for a CD. Picked it up for $8.99. Dunno if it’s used, but it’s in mint condition.

  • Bang on a Can Industry (1995).

  • Silica Gel 50) Noisy Children Party (1993)—A Seeland / Wifflefist co-release, so you know it has to be interesting.

  • The Cosmic Forces of Mu (2002)—26 new exclusive tracks from Mike Paradinas’ Planet Mu record label, 2 CDs.

  • King Crimson THRaKaTTaK (1996). Another one I intended to buy years ago but didn’t see for under $12 until today.

All were $9.99 or less. Also picked up Freeform Audiotourism Vietnam and China Reinterpretations (2002 I think). As far as I can tell, it’s audio sound recordings and photos from Vietnam and China, interactive software, plus a second CD of music built from those recordings by people including Bill Laswell and Autechre. Paid an outrageous $15.99 for it, but I figured it was more than just a CD, and I’d never see it again if I didn’t. (Quatermass Recordings, yeah right.)

Also picked up four CDs for under $10 each at HMV a week or two ago, so I now have lots of music and won’t let myself go near a CD store for some months.

I hate to think how much I’d spend on CDs if they were all $10 all the time. Thank goodness the fuckwits in the music industry keep jacking up the prices.
