Happiness is … circular, usually black, and very, very loud

So I turned 40 a couple weeks ago, something that I was in two minds about but old age is inevitable so, whatever. Although, if clicking over into a new decade tends to yield a swathe of quality plastic like this then hell, I might just do it every year. Yeah!
I have awesome friends who know me well enough to just give me records for my birthday, and these friends have taste. So a big thanks to Matt & Mel, Ned, Rob & Shanna, Lisa & Rich, Cole & Cathrine, and J and Rosa of course (those ones are yet to come … I’ve been given carte blanche to scour record shops when we go to Germany in December … look out, Bis Aufs Messer … I’m coming, & I’m bringing cash).
