As you might have noticed there’s been a bit of a hiatus here at Scratchy towers resulting in a lack of postings over the summer months. The plan is to revamp the site with a regular schedule of postings and even have some mp3s to give you, the loyal reader, a chance to listen to some of these choice music finds and also give a more complete experience of the records listed.
Well, the relaunch has overshot its original deadline, but do not fear Scratchy readers, things are happening behind the scenes. The stockpile of vinyl blasts from the past is growing. They’re being scanned, processed and researched and the conversions to mp3s have begun in earnest. We’ve also been keeping an ear to the ground for contemporary sounds and sifting through the wastelands of Myspace, seeking out some new acts worthy of a mention.
In the meantime, here’s my current favourite video by American indie popster Rafter Roberts, whose song title sums up the inertia that we need to shake off if we’re to get this thing up and running again...
