TVD's Weekend Shots

I had a Ska theme all lined up for this Weekend's Shots...but y'know, let's stick with the New Wave thing because even with 5 days of posts, we barely scratched the surface. So, some free-form blogging, folks...

Yazoo - Situation (Mp3)
The Assembly - Never Never (Mp3)
Wall of Voodoo - Mexican Radio (Mp3)
Prefab Sprout - The Devil Has All The Best Tunes (Mp3)
Go-Betweens - Cattle And Cane (Mp3)
The Icicle Works - Birds Fly (Whisper to a Scream) (Mp3)
New Order - Blue Monday (Mp3)
Depeche Mode - Everything Counts (Mp3)
Shriekback - Lined Up (Mp3)
Cabaret Voltaire - Yashar (Mp3)

By the way, this still is your forum, TVD reader. Ten tracks and some tricks? We'd love to hear 'em... It's simple - send us a note...

TVD | Friday @ Random

So, I heard from Rick over at Orpheus Records this week and despite what that big ol' ad says over there to the left, he'll be open through June but hours during the month will be a little less standard. Give them a call first if you plan to head over there next month. TVD was there last week and grabbed quite a tall stack of LP's for just $114.44. And Rick noted, all but three had just hit the floor over the past few days which bodes well as he sells off all of the good stuff that's been hidden in the back for years. | Watch this space for more ticket giveaways...we've got shows lined up for the Black Cat and 9:30 in the coming weeks--and they're bands you know, TVD reader. | Thanks to everyone who wrote in for Uh Huh Her tickets this week. BYT has an awesome set of photos and a great recap of the show this morning. | For next week's theme week, we've called in an expert on the topic. Quite frankly, I'm looking forward to reading my own blog and grabbing the downloads for myself. Hint: which UK icon turns 50 this month? | Yesterday I was thinking that 'I Ran' was possibly the quintessential New Wave track. But I was wrong. It's 'Turning Japanese'...
