Another distro order placed with one of my favourite online stores, Different Kitchen. In this order I picked up the following:
The Darlington Sessions. A nine track acoustic album featuring three tracks each from the likes of Giles Bidder (Great Cynics), Kelly Kemp and Roo Pescod (Bangers). Black vinyl and a nice showcase of UK artists.
Then my main reason for ordering, even though it’s a 7” and I’m trying to be less active in the 7” market recently (in fact I am planning a huge cull at some point!). But this one needed to be added to the collection. Pears! Amazing banc, “Go To Prison” was one of the best albums I heard in the last year and this is their debut release on Fat Wreck, so an essential addition. It’s called “Letters To Memaw”.

And just for the hell of it I added this 7” from the sale page (it was only a quid!), Squirtgun doing “Jingle Bell Rock”. Released in 1999 on red vinyl and limited to 1000 copies.
Nice haul indeed!
