AB - is Pop Will Eat Itself worth a listen overall?

My memory of them (like other early 90s indie acts) was that they were heading in the right direction, but not quite great. :)

It's a lot of fun yeah. It doesn't have anything from Dos Dedos though as they'd switched labels from BMG/RCA at that point, so its predominately their grebo/alternative dance stuff.

Today I bought
Tortoise - Millions Now Living Will Never Die

PWEI - the alternative dance period is how I remember them - 'Can U Dig It' and 'X Y & Zee' stand out in my memory.

Got a signed copy of the new Zombies album at the show.
Also found a badass old Bowie button pictured here.

I bought those two at the time. I found the cassette of 'Happy Daze Vol 2' again last summer and it remains a good listen. The Happy Daze albums (IIRC they didn't go beyond two volumes?) were influential on my tastes at the time. They pointed the way out of the late 80s 'hair band hell' (as KLL76 might put it :) ) into the more interesting indie/dance.

Though Vol 1 & the Carter USM album are long gone from my collection :(

My recent music purchases include:

CD:
-Ween's entire studio discography as well as most of their live albums
-Aaron Freeman's debut solo album "Freeman"

Vinyl:
-"In Through The Out Door" and "Led Zeppelin III" by Led Zeppelin
-"Master Of Reality" by Black Sabbath
-"Parklife" "13", and "The Magic Whip" by Blur
-"Tiny Tim's America" by Tiny Tim, which was an exclusive vinyl release limited to 1000 copies.

Digital:
-Ween's 2 live albums that are no longer in print and thus extremely expensive to get physical copies of.

Pretty soon I'm hoping to get Led Zeppelin's "Physical Graffitti" and Blur's "Modern Life Is Rubbish" on vinyl, so those will likely be my next purchases.

I envy those who have Ween CDs. I have White Pepper but thats it, and that's not one of my favourites by them (even though its great.)

That is a very eclectic choice of albums Dekagamer7X9.

:) I sometimes wonder how Tiny Tim managed to become popular. Though he became popular enough to play the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 in amongst all the rock heavyweights.

I would like to collect the albums on vinyl as well, but I've heard bad things about the U.S. pressings. So, I guess if I ever do try and find them, I'll try and get the U.K. pressings.
