I've Got a Mind Like a Playgroup

Hi -- I'm a newbie to the group, but I've loved Pat's music ever since the mid-80's, when while looking for the latest Love n' Rockets single (at the time, I think it was "Kundalini Express"), the guy at the local record shop held up BLOODY NONSENSE and said, "Hey, David J is in this band, too." (Yep, BLOODY NONSENSE, which means I live on the left side of the Big Pond.)

So I gladly bought the record and fell in love with it instantly.

At the time, though, my record buying dollars were limited, so I passed the chance to buy any of the original Glass records which were still available (sob!) at that time. Fortunately I managed to stumble onto a couple of them later.

I always remained fond of the older sound of Pat's records, although now I know that he considers them too thin and unprofessional sounding. But the later stuff just wasn't doing much for me, so by BIG PLANET I lost interest.

Now, however, with the release of DRAINING THE GLASS, I've started listening to Pat's music a lot, and even those late '80's albums are sounding pretty spiffy (even if the production is starting to sound pretty dated). I still have yet to even find any of Pat's albums from the '90's. His stuff is so dratted hard-to-find over here.

But I _do_ have, on vinyl:

A SCANDAL IN BOHEMIA
HAMBURG
THE GIFT OF MUSIC
BLOODY NONSENSE
DISTRESSED GENTLEFOLK
FISHCOTHEQUE
CULT OF THE BASEMENT
BIG PLANET, SCAREY PLANET
and DRAINGING THE GLASS on CD. Nice to find y'all.

Now, here's a question: I'm looking for a more comprehensive JB discography than what was available on the website. Specifically, I'd like to know both the A _and_ B-sides of all the JB singles. Can anyone help me out with that?

Thanks!
