Hola!!! Sorry I've been away. I've been manic. I'm now in LA but the week before I left I suddenly got tons of work so by the time I actually came to go on holiday I felt I needed it!! We've been here since Tuesday. Meghans just arrived yay!! I've left my camera at Texan Alex's so no party pics just yet. HOWEVER!!! What i DO have is the best goodies ever from a super cool store called Oogie Boogie that we visited in Chinatwon today. Flo used to work there when she lived in LA and I spent so much money, mainly on things for other people...My ultimate buy was these 4 cassette tapes made by Calvin Johnson. I wanted more but they were $10 each and I'd already picked up a ton on fanzines! Sooooooo obviously I stuck to the girl shit!!! Heres what I got!

At the risk of boring you I'm gonna type out the first 5 tracks so you can get the gist and if I can work out the technology I'll record them and put them up on here.

So here goes:

GIRLS INTERNATIONALE - 60s Female Artists from Foriegn (sic)
Lolita - Gioverdi Venerdi
Sandie Shaw - Gils Don't Come
Natercia Barreto - Oculos de Sol
Katarzyrna Sobczyk - Ani Mi Sie Sni
Alice Dona - Les Garcons
Twinkle - Tommy

BABY BE MINE - R+B Soul Women 45s
Pattie Lenoir + Her Hi-Stands - Take Romance and Give it a Chance
Eloise - Ooh, Baby (wand)
Mamie Galore - Don't Think I Could Stand It
Irma Thomas - Gone
Jackie Verdell - Don't Set Me Free (Decca)

WE WILL BURY YOU - Female New Wave/Punk 1977-82
Pylon - Cool
The Reactors - Membrane
Get Smart! - Eat Sleep a Go-Go
Honey Bane - Girl On the Run
Destroy All Monsters - You're Gonna Die

GIRLS GROW UP FASTER - Girls and Girl Groups 50s and 60s
Sue Lyon - Turn off the Moon
The Swans - You Better Be a Good Girl Now
The Dixie Cups - I'm Gonna Get You Yet
Robin Ward - Dream Boy
Jackie DeShannon - Be Good Baby

I've finally bought a cassette recorder and as I type this I'm listening to WE WILL BURY YOU, while the girls are chilling after a hard days shopping at Melrose Trading Flea Market (where we saw Agnes Deyn and Albert Hammond FYI). Good times...
