The HMO Challenge 2013 is now in July! Wow, time flies when you’re having fun.
This month I have £50 to spend on CDs, Vinyl and music DVDs. Normally, I’d be having a wee look through the upcoming releases for the month and listing the releases that are the most HMO-friendly. But I’ve had a look and there are slim pickings this month. There’s so little in the way of new releases I’m not even going to bother listing any here.
So, at the moment, it’s looking like July could be an easy month but I’m sure to get the music-buying itch at some point so what else is taking my fancy at the moment? I’ve got gaps in my Darkthrone collection that have been bugging me for some time, lots of Def Leppard singles I’ve been meaning to get and there are still albums I’ve been wanting to get since the start of the year from bands like Pentagram, Danzig, High on Fire and Cirith Ungol so I can see this month being about scoring some cheap gap-fillers! Alternatively, there are a few Deluxe Editions out there that I still don’t have so maybe I could use this opportunity to catch up with some of those? Off the top of my head I can think of Dio, Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy ones I would like to pick up. Also, if I’m thinking ahead, August has a lot of good stuff lined up so maybe I should be making room in my budget for all the exciting stuff coming out then?
I don’t see much point in going into any more detail than that but if you have any tips about good music coming out this month, please let me know in the comments section. If I find out about any exciting bands or albums I’ll be sure to put up a How Tempting! update and let you know. Happy hunting!
