Posted Sober


2022 Charity Shop Purchases # 1 - Michael Marra - Posted Sober

The  more observant among you will notice that there is not a No Depression post today. There are two reasons for this 
i) technical issues - my PC does not appear to be picking up discs from my USB player. I think an update is required
ii) we had a sneaky wee jaunt to the East Neuk of Fife this week meaning that I had neither the time or the inclination to draft a post given the extensive (I use that word lightly) research required.

On the positive side our trip saw the first Charity Shop purchases of 2022.I can't play them in order due to the above mentioned technical issues. Fortunately I had a burn of Posted Sober an album by the Bard of Lochee Michael Marra courtesy of the record library. It is from 2002  and on the Inner City Sound label..

I picked it up in Cancer Research in St Andrews. There was the usual dross on the shelves and then one of the volunteers came out of the back shop with some new ones. One was Sumday by Grandaddy which I already have and this Michael Marra one enabling me to upgrade the burn.

Hopefully I'll have the gremlins fixed soon.


  1. Reading the title I thought you were implying that you normally post on here when you're not sober. Which would explain a lot.

    Anyway, it a top record. "She was a woman to whom life had been cruel and she lived with a fat man of the naive school" is one of my favourite lines in recoded history.

    1. I thought exactly the same. I also wondered if this was a new series to coincide with Dry January... albeit a rather late start.

    1. I like some of them.They don't all work for me

    2. but the good news is that there is 4cd set of Hot Chocolate!
