Eclectic Mainline 13th April 2011

record-store-day-2011It only seems like 364 days since I previewed Record Store Day 2010.  Little did I realise at the time, as I planned my trip into Leeds, that I would be approximately the 100th person to be queuing outside Crash Records when I got there at approximately 08:20 on the day itself.  And little did I realise that it would be over 2 hours before I actually got into the shop.  Oh the enthusiasm of youth.

Speaking of me playing songs, here’s what  I played tonight:
