Edinburgh Man #206

May 3rd, 2015

Ahem. Look, in my defence I did say that the last podcast was going to be the last REGULARLY SCHEDULED podcast for a while. And it is, what? 9 or 10 days since the last one? So that’s irregular. Otherwise this is basically what you’ve come to expect. Rambling and music.

This time the rambling is from my new standing desk contraption – aka a chest of drawers with a half open drawer and strategically placed planks of wood. There is a chance the whole thing may collapse on top of me during the show.

So this year I went off to Record Store Day with the express intention of buying one record at the most. It’s not because of some fashionable stand against the concept, more just a lack of enthusiasm for the whole thing. So I bought one record, and spent more time in the Library reading books to Edinburgh Man Junior than I spent in any record shops. How times have changed.

Unfortunately, when I got home I remembered that the stylus (and cartridge – for these things aren’t separate) was broken. So I had to go back out into town and spend £80… Yes, £80(!) on a new cartridge. I have a feeling that £80 was how much the whole turntable cost me back in my student days when I purchased it via a classified advert in the back of the Edinburgh Herald and Post.

So in the end I spent as much money as normal. At least the record was a nice colour.

So last night I went to see Tigercats, Plastic Animals, and Fever Dream at Henry’s Cellar Bar. It was the first standing up gig I’ve been at all year! I was going to go out again tonight and see Stanley Brinks and Freschard, but more than 14 hours of standing yesterday seems to have had an adverse reaction on this old man’s back.

However, earlier on today, before I’d decided to spend this evening lying down rather than tapping my foot to French anti-folk, I recorded this podcast as I walked to work. Yep – it’s one of those outside broadcasts recording on an iPhone!
