Hello and welcome to Sitting Up Straight; intermittent blog posts from a music lover trying to maintain a record collection in a world of infinite streaming.

In a world where we can download multiple albums in minutes it’s become too easy to stockpile music without giving it the time of day it deserves. And there’s so much music available to us nowadays, where do you even begin? 

I’m happy to take it slow and relish the happy accidents and ear worms that I stumble upon. 

In a disregard to storage I’ve started buying vinyl copies of records I’ve already got on CD.

I put Lennon and McCartney on an equal pedestal and I think that Ringo was a good drummer.

I believe that Radiohead’s OK Computer is the best album ever made, and I like lists.

Thanks for reading.
