Strangely Strange

Came home this afternoon listening to "The Lusty Sounds Of Diddy Wah", another inimitable podcast by Adam Weatherhead. Adam appears to be an Australian based in this country and he can be found here where he cooks up strange, smoky mixes from vinyl found in junk shops or at record fairs. "The Lusty Sounds" involves Jonathan Richman's "Egyptian Reggae", Johnny Wakelin's "In Zaire" and The Turtles doing "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea (We're the Royal Macadamia Nuts)" among many others, but what I really love is the sound of a blunt stylus ploughing through a scratched black vinyl 45.
