All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

I.e. poor post-rate of late. Excuse for a New Year’s Resolution etc.

Someone has posted an awesome series of French spoken-word vinyl on Youtube: here’s the Alain Robbe-Grillet one as an example (the rest are linked at the side).

A pile of bonus marks for the video-art vibe achieved by using a wobbly hand-held camera – filming the front and backs covers – as a means of recording the disc. It takes on a mesmerising, oddly sinister visual rhythm entirely separate from what’s being said.
