As I said previously, I still have a backlog of finished collections and covers yet to post.  And, there are still some albums I feel need to be done before I leave. 

But, as you can see, I'm really struggling getting it all up.  Not that I can't right now, just the desire is not there.

I will finish what I started, and it isn't finished yet.  Keep checking back, and you'll get more new stuff as I feel like posting.  Maybe one at a time, maybe huge chunks, we will see.

by the way, check out the new albums by Liam Gallagher, The Horrors, and OMD.  All three of them really kick ass.  Great albums!!!!!

Re-Flex - Politics Of Dancing - 1983

The Re-Flex's The Politics Of Dancing is the next entry, continuing in my series of lesser popular/successful 80s Synthpop bands.  I only remember this band for the album's title track, and then their later 80s hit Funky Town.  Too bad, because this entire album is great!  Had I known more about them when I was soaking myself in Duran albums back then, who knows where my loyalty might lie, now....

Anyway, I plotted my remaining albums that I've finished, as well as getting in all of the material that I want to post before I quit.  If I could stay on schedule, I'd be posting until next JUNE.  Fuck that, sorry.  So, it's a toss up between just disappearing altogether, or just posting here and there, when I have time and desire to do so.  We will see.  Again, just enjoy what gets posted until I pull the plug.

Pseudo Echo - Autumnal Park - 1984

I said what I had to say in the post right below this one.  Enjoy Pseudo Echo, a band I was never really in to.  But, that's okay.  I listen to it now on occasion.  Just listened to it last week on the road.  Not bad...


Where the hell have I been?!


Yeah, it's been at least a week.  And, I promised I'd post twice a week.  I know.  These last two weeks have been hell with "real world" problems.  I've been out of town for 10 of the last twelve days, only getting home about two hours ago.  Last weekend, when I got home, our sewer system decided to explode, and I had old rotting food and feces floating around all three bathrooms.  Ended up having to get an entirely new sewer system from our house to the city line.  The AT&T line got dug up when they were replacing the sewer, and we were without internet for 5 days.

So, that's that.

Which leads me, then to this.

I've lost the desire.  I'm sorry, but it's just gone.  Doing this has become too much of a burden, and I'm losing that precious family time during the week, so this poor ol' blog has to go on hiatus, if not end completely.

I will finish posting the albums I've already completed.  Then, I will make and finish the essentials that I have yet to make from all of the best bands.  Even so, we should still have posts through the end of the year.  But, that will be it.  No requests, no suggestions, nothing.  I will finish what I have and what I've planned, and then I'm out.

But, that doesn't mean that the blog will go away.  I will still be here to re-up dead links and comment when I have time.  But, the collecting, converting and cover-making will end.  So sad.

Enjoy it while it lasts, folks.  Don't have much longer.....

Phil Collins - 12"ers from No Jacket Required - 1985

Not much to add on this one.  I took the original EP/Compilation from 6 tracks up to 8.  Big deal.  But, it's Phil.  You know?

I never really appreciated Phil or Genesis during their 80s heyday.  I saw their videos, and thought them quintessential 80s material, but that was it.  It wasn't until Phil released hits that I realized what an accomplished and talented guy he really is.  As it is, though, when he went the route of soundtracks in the early aughts, I was a little disappointed in the work.  But, for the most part, Phil is "the Man."

Not much today, see you on Friday.
