Put the lid down prior to switching the needle arm on. Never put the lid down during playback would be my only advice.
Why put the lid down first? Surely the needle will still pick up the vibrations etc
That would be dependent upon the weight of the lid and make etc of the system.
I wouldn’t have thought that would make a difference as it was the noise from the needle vibrating around the inside of the lid and getting picked up by itself??
I can only think that the vibrations from the needle bouncing back from a lid that also vibrates creating unwanted noise. Surely this is not a new problem and the makers of expensive stereos etc would have worked this out. I know a lot of lids have cut-outs on the sides. I've owned numerous stereos down the years and never once encountered this problem.
My ears would never pick it up anyway 😂
A friend of mine had a stereo back in the day and the motor had gone on the turntable so you had to manually spin it with everyone shouting too fast, too slow.

School of Seven Bells, Alpinisms - Alternative Versions. Curiosities and nothing more, but worthwhile because Alpinisms is a superb album.
I checked these folks out and liked them for a bit and then lost interest. I should try again.
The first album was the only one that really grabbed me. After that, bits and pieces only. But they do sound like something that would appeal to you.

I listened to this earlier, managed to embed an image too :idea:
every day is a school day ;)
skills need to be tweaked but its a start
Great album always wished it would get a cd release.
If I can get a decent enough rip then I think we could do that ;) when I get a bit of time I'll have a go at it, the first disc has had more plays than the second disc and has more wear, will let you know.

If I were out foraging and came across it in my charity boutiques I would take a chance on it, on the cover alone, also I find 4G on yer phone can muster some reasonable info to take a chance, I like that you can do that :approve:

Jello Biafra - Die For Oil, Sucker (1991)
Image

I'd forgotten how good peak-era Jello spoken word is. Pulled out this 7 inch and it holds the fuck up. The vitriolic propaganda hasn't aged one day imho. I think his later stuff doesn't hold up to repeat listenings as well, but these early 90s bits are so timeless. This single in particular captures stuff that's closer to poetry or stand up than a lecture, too, which helps. Maybe his best spoken word release.

I agree with the bolded. Around the time of the lawsuit (tho not necessarily because of it), he started sounding a lot more paranoid and eager to promote goofy ideas and conspiracies.

Yeah, he went in the direction of a lot of Boulder-libs, sort of goofily anti-science and a touch paranoid. If he was conservative, he'd be an Alex Joneser. It's not terrible, but between that and an increase focus on the tactical side of politics (I listened to his green wedge 7 inch next and it was super dated), he doesn't have as much staying power. It's telling he hasn't released a spoken word album in a bunch of years, imho.

This Mortal Coil, Dust & Guitars, the fourth disc of mixes and non-album songs from the box set. It really doesn't get much 4AD-ier.

The few songs I've heard on the radio have been good but his voice has changed a lot in the last few years. He is 75 I suppose.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I shuffled it via Spotify. Decent listen. His aging voice is great for the new material but you notice the loss of presence when he sings Beatles live. He's spry and quick witted and just as lazy with his lyrics as he's ever been. His keeping at it puts a smile on my face.
