26/02/15: Kyoto Cafe: Soothing, Acoustic & Nostalgic, WC1

'Soothing, Acoustic & Nostalgic,' says the subtitle. Found this on top of a bin (and on top of a cigarette) by the building works on Grafton Way, WC1. It's a 2009 CD from Korea. When I unfolded the packaging, the CD looked quite playable.

Found this in Charlotte Street, W1. The enigmatic text on the sticker reads "17...". Unlikely to play.

08/02/15: Showmaxx CD-R

Tillingham Way, Woodside Park, N12. One of the less familiar CD-Rs, this Showmaxx disc looked like it had seen a fair bit of water damage in the harsh early February weather.

05/02/15: No Silence by ATB

Mornington Street, Camden, NW1. According to Wikipedia: "No Silence is the fifth studio album released by German DJ and producer, ATB. It was released in 2004 and includes hits such as 'Marrakech', 'Ecstasy' and 'Here with Me' (all featuring vocals by Tiff Lacey) . . . Unlike his other album releases, ATB used a cross fade effect on each song as a transition to the next song on the album with dream-like sequences and sounds of nature." ATB is an abbreviation of André Tanneberger. Unlikely to play.

03/02/15: Workzone: cutting disc for thin metal

“Only for cutting! Not for grinding!” says the text. Thought this was a CD. In fact, it's a disc for cutting metal. A controversial inclusion, perhaps, but in the darkness of Harrington Street, Camden, NW1, I was convinced that this was a discarded album. "Workzone" even sounds like a pop group – a failed boy band perhaps?
