Mrs Knees got me a jesus and mary chain ep - never understand
I got her a couple of Rainbow records.
We sound like we're in our 60s and have been married for 40 years.
When I was 14 :O
Can't remember the last time a "love" gave me an album.
I was made an amazing 90s mixtape though
did the choice expand your musical likes?
no, it didn't, it made me love the 90s even more though.
Maybe sex bomb baby by Flipper?
She then left the party really early because she had a headache.
good times. And she bought me a weekend in Glasgow so I could blow all my money in Volcanic Tongue...:)
I did swap Siamese Dream for Shake Your Money Maker by the Black Crowes though. I stand by my decision.
Previous love was the second Hot Chip record i think, or maybe the best of Pink Floyd on vinyl.
even though she knew I hated Portishead, because she didn't have any other CDs.
It made me think of that Roald Dahl story where he was lying in bed sick and his child brought him a glass of water because that's all she could do. In a way it was the sweetest mixtape anyone ever gave me. Yet in another, very real way, it was literally the worst mixtape of all time
She also introduced me to Curb and Larry David is my favourite man ever.
I don't like Alicia Keys. I spent 5 years pretending to.
when she came on stage everyone starts going, 'BOO BOO' and my ex is like, 'why are they booing her?'.
it was rubbish. cheers.
Keep them coming Joan Rivers
or was this a big line-up gig?
Thought she was one of those universally loved women-want-to-be-her, men-want-to-be-in-her type people?
mrs knees also hates AK. too plinkity plonkity with the piano she thought....along the same lines as john martyn being too twingeddy twangedy with his guitar and too moany with his voice.
I can see her point
I'm not saying she isn't talented, it's just that she's . . . . dull.
I like the jesus and may chain.....the next gift record was good too a 12" extended remix of Pete SHelley/Martin Rushent 'Homo sapien'
I think a Los camp! Tour 7"? Shred Yr Face thingmy? I remember, it was a nice surprise in the train station before he went away to Leeds or Fest or something. Almost exactly three years ago by my estimations. CRAZY.
never bought me music ever
I'd only be dismissive, rude and then to cap it all patronising.
I've bought her loads because I have a broad knowledge and incredible taste.
Except I mean it.
She'd never buy me music because I'd be such a penis about it.
I give her quite a lot because she's too busy to spend her life poring over music websites etc.
Basically she's a proper grown up.
at least I think it was in a romantic sense. He could have just been doing it to be nice.
I still can't listen to the music without thinking of him.
For my 18th.
It was a lovely gesture. She wasn't a big Sonic Youth fan (although she had an incredible taste in music) and picked one of the less great albums of theirs but it was the thought. At least she thought.
because my laptop was completely f*cked and i couldn't listen to music.
he also made me an idm mix 'intelligent donkey music'
he never makes me mix cds anymore :(
someone else form this website bought me The Cure's Greatest Hits on our first date, that was pretty rad <3
the best of the Lemonheads. I already had all their albums, but it was very sweet of him.
but I did buy a girl Will Smith's 'Miami' (single) in year 9 and gave it to her for her birthday (wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper).
Someone else bought her 'Big Willie Style' (album). Real fucking subtle.
She chose him.
Must have been Year 8 or so. It remains the only anonymous valentine I've ever received, probably karmic retribution for throwing it in the bin.
First one I remember my last ex getting me was the soundtrack to Control, the Joy Division film.
I mainly just nicked hers though, she had awesome taste.
