Some lovely new additions:
Darren Hayman (my first Christmas record of 2011) and Red Shoe Diaries' 10"s on the lovely Fika label. The tea bags came with the records. Yum.
Pants Yell! CD and postcard from Andrew Churchman. The disk is a live radio set from 2004 and is awesome.
Dot Dash CD on The Beautiful Music label. Perhaps unspurpsingly for a label that has released several volumes of TVPs covers this sounds marvellously like something you'd have found on the Whaam label back in the day. Terrific stuff.
Second Christmas record of 2011 to arrive on my doorstep is the Factory Owners' 'Lucybel' 7" b/w The Granite Shore's version of 'When Sleep Won't Come' on the very wonderful Occultation label. Priceless.
