HotUKDeals Of The Day - Thursday 22nd January
We’re in a musical mood here at Bitterwallet today, what with the installation of Spotify into our tiny brains. Free sounds galore, with an ad for a government agency every 25 minutes. Like being in a brilliant Soviet Union.
Anyway, all of today's bargains have a musical flavour to them – all in cahoots with the flautists, trombonists and twang-box handlers from HotUKDeals. Bass!
It was the late, great John Peel who described The Fall as his favourite ever band. Singer Mark E. Smith might look like a cross between Chesney out of Corrie and a peeled E.T. but the man is a genius - and has a legion of fans both likely and fairly unlikely (former England cricket coach David Lloyd anyone?)
If you’re looking to become a more interesting and well-rounded person, you could invest in this 5-CD bootleg collection by Smith and the various poor sods he’s employed to be in his backing band down the years. But you’d be mad – get the 6-CD Peel Sessions box set instead for a few quid more. It is superb. (Touch Sensitive by The Fall follows at the end of this message)

Find out with this handy £2.99 Guitar Chords wall poster. Stick it on one of those flat vertical bits at the side of your room, grab a guitar, have a bit of a practice, then see if you can play along with The Fall on ‘To Nkroachment: Yarbles.’

The potato, to be precise. A bag of Sainsburys Taste The Difference Vivaldi salad potatoes for just a quid. They’re officially Bitterwallet’s favourite potato you know – you should have been there when we gave each other a bag of them for Christmas. All of us! The same type of potato and everything! Hilarious. Oh…
