what music I got for my birthday

"phillipbrooker"
 
Real Gone
Real Gone
"Tom Waits' most recent album. More top stuff. Completely Timeless"
Rain Dogs
Rain Dogs
"To replace my crappy worn-out tapes. Tango till you're sore with a jockey full of bourbon. Best way to spend a night I find."
Swordfishtrombones
Swordfishtrombones
"See above. '16 Shells From a 30.6' has got a groove going on. Possibly best Waits album"
Rock Island
Rock Island
"Not the best, but it completes the full set of Tull albums. So it's good."
Under Wraps
Under Wraps
"Same as above. Nowhere near the best, but I gotta get them all."
Antics

"The cream of the New Yoik crop. There's some good stuff happening there, check it out. Interpol whup the llama's ass."
Little Thoughts/Tulips
Little Thoughts/Tulips
"Some say this is Bloc Party's worst single, but don't listen to them. This has massive melody and good B-Sides. So buy it, and all the others too."
Formed a Band
Formed a Band
"Cos it's just good. That's that."
Massachusetts Murder Medallions
Massachusetts Murder Medallions
"New mathsy-type music from Brighton (if I remember right). Apparently sound like Sonic Youth, but I wouldn't know. It's just experimental and British. So we can see them live. Which is nice."
Aha Shake Heartbreak
Aha Shake Heartbreak
"Either 'retro' or you actually get it. Very good. The yearnings of Southern boys. Beautiful at times. Surprisingly so."
For Lovers
For Lovers
"A really good tune, with a video to match. I'm a massive Libertines fan (except I live 'oop Norff') but this good on it's own."
Baudolino
Baudolino
"Eco writes so richly, has humour and is just so good at writing plots. Tough going (you have to read many pages twice) but it's always worth it. Pick up 'Foucault's Pendulum' when you can as well."
Republic (Oxford World's Classics)
Republic (Oxford World's Classics)
"I've been reading loads of political philosophy recently. This is probably the start of it."
The Nicomachean Ethics (Dover Thrift Editions)
The Nicomachean Ethics (Dover Thrift Editions)
"Same as above. But also, read Machiavelli's 'The Prince', More's 'Utopia' and Marx's 'Communist Manifesto' for a historical progression."
