Gary Numan, Empire of the Sun, and Dr Who at the Library


The Library is an amazing place. I picked up a card to my local branch and was amazed at their CD selection. For a pound I took out Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Bookends’ (sometimes you need a little hippie dippie in your life), Tubeway Army’s ‘Replicas’ (an amazing album!!!!!) and Empire of the Sun’s debut album ‘Walking on a Dream.’ Not to mention for a pound I can also rent any Dr Who which caused a Dr Who marathon in our flat.

I don’t know what to say about Gary Numan. This is a classic album that was the predecessor to much electro/disco/new wave that fallowed in the early 80’s. “Are Friends’ Electric’ (just covered by the Dead Weather) is the know one here, but the whole album is a dream. Just check this out this 1981 performance in London if your not knowing:

Because I haven’t listened to it in its entirety I am super excited about the Empire of the Sun album. When I first came across them about a year ago it was the album cover that caught my attention first. It looks like a movie poster. The other day my mates and I analyzed the cover and came up with what the movie would be about. I am excited to see them perform at love box in two weeks. Hope it’s not disappointing!

I guess their movie would look something like this

Food: Roasting tips:

Before cooking, season well and use a knife to make pockets in the meat for garlic halfs. Quickly sear the out side of your meat at a high temperature and then cook it at low temperature in the oven. Long and slow. Let it stand for 10 minutes before carving. Thank you Mr. Sinclair for that one
(PS. find a butcher near you that sells non industrial raised meat. you don’t want slave meat.)
