I lucked out and picked up the Small Faces Ichycoo Park and Tin Soldier 45s.
I wasn’t going to be meeting Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill of Simple Minds at the Sister Ray record shop in London, since I’m not in England, but I was able to pick up the 12″ vinyl they released to coincide with Record Store Day.

It’s the first new PiL music in almost 20 years.
