As I'm off to Japan tomorrow and it's the land of vinyl, here's some I have been playing...

Man Erotica French single banned in the UK-Krokus as it reminds me of touring America with Def Leppard in 1983 where you'd alway's see a bare chested Marc Storace walking around backstage with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s and a woman on each arm plus Headhunter is a good forgotten song. Free in Stockholm 1970 a fantastic minimalist band-Goldon Earring Moontan I have this in Italian and a UK textured cover pressings, The Vanilla Queen is worth hearing plus of course Radar Love-Tad the best band from Seattle after Soundgarden-Backtrack Series on Track Records-Eddie And The Hot Rods and Manassas as I've been reading the late drummer Dallas Taylor's sobering book on excess. Finally an old book I found from the '70's Rock On The Road by Mick Gold.

Chris Cornell’s birthday today, I found a hard drive with photos I had not looked at from Australia so here is a few. And a happy birthday to Chris...
