Jim's Tips

Jim Clarke aka original blog-man-dem Emerald Daze slips me two great CD-Rs at the k-punk memorial dérive.

Jim has always had excellent taste and, like only the deepest culture warriors, he's still ploughing those furrows; still digging up interesting stuff. Like just last week - this cool Wim Mertens on Les Disques Du Crépuscule wot he sent over.

The Simon Fisher Turner is a soundtrack-ish, field-recording-y, jazz-like oddyssey. Very atmospheric. The Sky Girl compilation an artfully-curated round-up of private press bedroom dreamers - sonix pitched somewhere between early Weekend and YMG. Unmissable.

Keep digging dude.
