Waste packaging

Ordered a new CD from Amazon which arrived today in a huge oversized box. In Europe there are a number of directives to reduce unnecessary packaging:

The Packaging (Essential Requirements) Regulations 2003 and the Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2007 (as well as their amendments), implement in the United Kingdom the EC Directive on Packaging and Packaging Waste (94/62/EC).

“packaging volume and weight must be the minimum amount to maintain necessary levels of safety, hygiene and acceptance for the packed product and for the consumer”

Someone forgot to tell Amazon! This box is big enough to safely transport 30 CD’s.

Great CD though..



Tin Star

I have been binge watching the excellent new series, Tin Star starring Tim Roth. Love the series and love the soundtrack each week. I tried looking to see if you could purchase the soundtrack but its not available yet. However there are plenty of sites offering track listings.

Spent an hour today buying tracks from Amazon, Ebay, ITunes and from IAMX’s own website to get hold of all the tracks.

Artists include Good Company, IAMX, The Crooked Brothers, Willis Earl Beal, Rouge Rouge, The Entrance Band, Leonard Cohen, Bert Jansch, Agnes Obel, Richard Walters, Francoise Hardy, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Nick Nolan
