Final (yes definitely) demise of the CD format

Ok ... so is this the final nail in the coffin? JB Hifi gets rid of its import back catalogue at $5 a piece. And I lose about $100+. Was it worth it? With some of these gems, I think so!

Early incarnation of the Sugarcubes - post punk new wave madness - KUKL's Holidays in Europe

Post Suzuki Krautrock relevance from CAN - Soon over Babaluma

Amazing early 80s Belgium label compilation - les disques du crepuscule 1980-1985 - packed full of rarely heard gems from Michael Nyman through to the Pale Fountains

Dimitri from Paris presents the Idjut Boys with a slew of classic 80s dub mixes including the likes of Raw Silk, Rah Band ... and erm ... Wham!

Essential Annie DJ Kicks compile - loungecore, post punk, electroclash ... brilliant

Nina Simone live - colour is a beautiful thing baby!! - Fodder on My Wings

Rufus and the inimitable Chaka Khan funking it out on Rufusized!

And finally, the best find of them all - Polysics "Hey Bob! My Friend" The Japanese Devo with a rocking cover of Pizzicato 5's Good!

Ah JB you've done it again!

Ok just for good measure here's the original P5 number:


  1. I have Rufusized on Vinyl. Great album!

  2. Fantastic anon ... I'm sure it sounds even better on vinyl!!
