On this Ruinationalist tip --- listening to:

Peter Hamill / Public Image CDR burned for me by Simon --- deviant Englishness

On Land - Eno --- this beguiles more with every listen --- an ominous, mournful psychogeography --- Eno's sleevenotes: 'What qualified a place for inclusion on this record was that it took me somewhere, but this might be somewhere that I'd never been before, or somewhere that I'd only imagined going to. Lantern Marsh, for example, is a place only a few miles away from where I grew up in East Anglia, but my experience of it derives not from having visited it (although I almost certainly did) but from having subsequently seen it on a map and imagining where and what it might be. We feel affinities not only with the past, but also with futures that didn't materialise, and with other versions of the present that we suspect run parallel to the one we have agreed to live on.'
