  1. Yep....freaked me a bit at first, but if the problem's serious enough you can get a human to call you...not ideal for me, but that's progress!
  2. I am dumb, never noticed!

  3. Managed to pick up Saturday Night Sunday Morning from River Detectives for £1.99 plus the Ruby Trax NME 3 CD set for the same price. (did have another but one disc was faulty)

  4. Result!
  5. Love the River Detectives album, Chains should have been a smasheroo!

    I got The Blue Nile High for £1 today, is it anywhere near the first two?

  6. It isn't, but it's a sweet listen all the same.

  7. Sadly not quite, but then nothing really is. Some beautiful tracks, and overall I felt it was closer to the Blue Nile spirit than Peace At Last. That was a little too acoustic and rambling for me at times, whereas High evokes that rainy night-time-in-the-city-vibe with the title cut and She Saw The World, plus it has the gorgeous I Would Never and Stay Close which sonically is the bookend to Over The Hillside from Hats.

  8. Enjoying Marika Hackman’s recent singles? Been a bit tardy picking up her earlier releases? iTunes have a deluxe version of We Slept At Last for £5.99. 27 tracks (album and three eps I think) and four videos. Bargain!
  9. VERY happy to have just picked up The last copy of Robyn’s ‘Honey’ on vinyl for £9.99 in my local HMV sale. Did I need it? No. Want it? Yup!

  12. It was £2.99 but to be honest I didn’t check if it was the deluxe or not, sorry dude! I have the deluxe already so I figured it was best to not even contemplate whether I’d paid a tenner more for it on release day.

  14. Amazon currently offering a load of the Sony-label "Twelve Inch Eighties" 3CD sets for 2.99 each.

    I got 7 of them for £21, which works out at literally a quid per disc.
  15. Do we know anything about possible Black Friday offers yet?
  16. It was £2.99 in my store, sorry :(

  19. Have HMV or Amazon not done a sale this year? I remember buying loads last Christmas.
  20. They have, pretty low-key but some decent deals to be had.

    Simple Minds 40: 3CD £5
    Recent stuff @ 4.99
    Some Blu-Rays @ 1.99, boxsets from 4.99
    Outlander S1-3 DVD 11.99, S1-2 Blu-Ray only 7 quid!

    That's a few things I've seen or bought. Generally if the amazon price has dropped suddenly, they're price-matching the HMV sale.
