Crap, I bought more music!

I just about got away from Record Store Day clean, when I happened upon Felt's Ignite The Seven Cannons/The Strange Idols Pattern in the "new" bin, even though it's not really new. It's two albums from 1985 and 1984 respectively.

AllMusic calls Strange Idols, "the pinnacle of Felt's Cherry Red catalog," observing that it is right here that Lawrence et al transform an obsession with Television into something entirely their own. Ignite the Seven Cannons is the Robin Guthrie-produced follow-up which includes "Primitive Painters," one of Felt's modest hits.

Anyway, happy weekend, I'm going upstairs to do the crossword and watch the Lakers game.
