hoover factory


I've been very busy today, but I've had time to set up a record player to start copying some stuff from vinyl to talk about.

First up is an Elvis Costello b-side from 1980. The building in the picture above is the Hoover Factory just outside London which I used to drive past whenever I went in or out of town. It's beautiful building that is now a supermarket. You can read more about it here.

The song is my favorite kind of Costello song. It's to the point, a little bit experimental, completely of it's time, and it speaks about something real that relates to my life. What do you think?

I enjoyed the mp3 "being" from your band. Let me know if you throw any other mp3's up, I'll link to them on my blog.
