Mrs Swiss is away for the weekend with friends at a cottage in the country- a weekend that started on Friday afternoon and she has craftily managed to get to last until half way through Monday. Yesterday afternoon while child no. 2 was at a danceshow rehearsal, I convinced child no. 1 that we should do a little record shopping. We went to Soundwaves in Stretford Arndale to pick something up and then popped into the ever excellent King Bee Records in Chorlton. Isaac's tolerance for record shopping is limited so it was a hit and run affair, straight into the dance/house section followed by the 80s indie/alternative rack and then Factory and Related. Didn't get to punk, he lost interest and the shop was pretty full. We left shortly after with a handful of winners. Like this one, the 12" of The The's Uncertain Smile. This video isn't much to look at but the song, the song is first rate, and it uses the full 12" of vinyl space to great effect.
