Class Actress Mod Club Toronto October 26th, 2011





















Class Actress in Toronto for the second time in the last couple of months and opening for Metronomy at the Mod Club. She is out promoting her fantastic new wave downtempo club beat album Rapprocher out on Carpark Records in the USA. Nice!.

This is what the crowd said:

@culturespotting: Dying for the first act! I wish the Mod Club had beds. A bar in London called boudoir had beds #MillionDollarIdea @shuttergrl (IKDK: That's Class Actress...get ready!!!)

@culturespotting: Digging opening act: Class Actress. Dynasty shoulder pads, 80s synth and I think she meowed that chorus line. #sold

@JRileyd: It's concentrated awesome on @kdhx right now... Class Actress was phenomenal... (IKDK: Not sure what that means but yeah!!!)

@DHWizzo: Haven't been this impressed by an opening band since Friendly Fires opened for Franz Ferdinand at Lee's Palace. Class Actress - nice.

@thatbrendagirl: Class Actress! So beautiful. @ The Mod Club Theatre

@panicmanual: crowd is packed at mod club for metronomy, where did they come from (IKDK: They were there to see Class Actress....gold!!)

Triffids - Goodbye Little Boy (Retro 005)

Just discovered this nice late eighties track taken from the band's final album The Triffids Present The Black Swan (1989). Have one Triffids record that I picked up in a dollar bin in the nineties but I've never really given it a listen. Really didn't know much about the Triffids before this. The band was out of Australia. Great track!!!!

The Smiths - The Smiths (Reissue 003)














In 1984, an English Band called the Smiths dropped their first album on the world. The record was simply self-titled The Smiths. Mainstream britpop was born.

The Smiths are about to reissue their old material in a super limited edition box set (3000 copies worldwide). It will be followed by 8 CD and 8 Vinyl box sets of their albums and compilations. If you have 300-400 dollars lying around you can pick up the super limited edition version.

The set, titled The Smiths Complete - Deluxe Collectors Box Set, features remastered versions of eight albums (on CD and vinyl), as well as reproduced versions of 25 7" singles, and all sorts of other stuff. Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and Frank Arkwright remastered all the music from its original tape sources. The set includes all four of the band's studio albums (1984's The Smiths, 1985's Meat Is Murder, 1986's The Queen Is Dead, 1987's Strangeways, Here We Come) alongside the 1988 live LP Rank and the compilations Hatful of Hollow (1984), The World Won't Listen (1987), and Louder Than Bombs (1987). All are included on mini-LP gatefold-style CDs and 180-gram vinyl.

It also contains 25 7" singles.
