Links: Jon Langford and the Sisters of Mercy, J. G. Ballard’s house, your headphones are listening.


  • Jon Langford of the Mekons and The Three Johns on his time with the Sisters of Mercy.

  • J. G. Ballard’s house is up for sale again, and this time they’re advertising him as a feature. Awful yellow front door preserved!

    (It can’t get a blue plaque until 2029, twenty years after his death, if you were wondering.)

  • Jim would have had something to say about needing not to leave your headphones plugged into your laptop unless you want to be spied on through them. (Headphones make pretty good microphones, and the typical PC sound chip can use any attached device as an input or output.)


    Jim at home, 1973.
