Sunny Shopping Day

Mutterings continued.

Didn't get off to the best of starts - drove to Garden City in Booragoon, got out of the car and thought, "My bad isn't very heavy.". Left me purse at home, didn't I. *sigh* Got back in the car, drove home, got my purse and went to the Coles supermarket round the corner instead. The range isn't as good and they didn't have vacuum cleaner bags.

Got home, a second time, to a message from Leece saying she wasn't coming over tonight as she's not well. Get better soon, L.

Shiny thing purchases from JBs: from the sublime to the gorblimey - The Axiom Archive 1969-1971 and The Monkees' Headquarters. For those who came in late: "Formed in Melbourne in 1969, Axiom were arguably Australia's first "supergroup". Yet, in spite of a wealth of talent and promise, some notable chart successes and two superb albums of original material, they failed to achieve lasting popularity, due in part to waning public support in Australia as they vainly tried to crack the fickle English market, and the band fizzled out after less than two years. Nevertheless, Axiom deserve to be reappraised as an important musical bridge between Sixties pop and Seventies rock in Australia, and as one of the first serious attempts to make Australian rock with international appeal." From Milesago.

They only produced two albums - Fool's Gold and If Only - both of which are on the Archive CD.
