Nine Inch Nails: The Downward Spiral

Back in the day, living in Glasgow listening to The Downward Spiral on my little stereo in Kelvingrove Park, watching crows demolish a chick of some species and reading Edgar Allan Poe. It would be embarrassing if it wasn’t so cool.

Aficionado: Aficionado

One upon a time, when torrents were a thing, SXSW used to publish a big fat bundle of music from bands that were playing and I used to download them and I reckon there’s still tracks on those lists I’ve never heard. Over 700 songs from 2005 alone. I *think* one of the bands I did listen to and liked enough to buy the album was Aficionado.
