Today on #bandcamp, albums I own that almost nobody else does:

Derision Cult - “The Future We Own” - just me and @craigmaloney

Black Cloud Syndicate - “Something New, Something Old, Something Borrowed, Zero Sold” - actually 2 sold

MG & The Juggernaut - “Tool”

The 1970s: Here's your Kodak Brownie camera with 110 speed film and 12 shots. Be sure to aim properly and _Don't Waste Film_
