Bitch Magnet - Americruiser Guitarz...more like spoken mumbles than spoken word but pretty influential IMO for Mogwai and bands of that stripe.

Bernthøler - Pardon Up Here if you don't know Bernthøler and have a taste for gauzy torch songs in the This Mortal Coil vein do yourself a favour and a have a listen to this and My Suitor which comes before it on the 12". Absolute fucking masterpieces.

Bernthøler ‎– Japanese Garden another spoken word from a little earlier, not quite My Suitor level as a track but still worth the few quid I paid for it.

Grebenstein & Seefried – Raging Tender literally just opened the box and played this for the first time. She seems to be talking the talk about Twin Peaks as far as I can tell. :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Propaganda - Disziplin As a massive Throbbing Gristle fan how I wanted to buy this when I saw this live. Cooler than a penguin. Sadly the studio version is weak sauce by comparison.
