Wow.
Full respect Jeff.

I can't find your post, my 'Page 68' is from March 2006 and is populated by Highland Fox, Yorkshire Vixen, and good old Alex.

There were so many british jangle bands in the late '80s (every one of them inspired by The Smiths....) that no-one generally knows about. Subway Records is a great place (Martin Whithead - Flatmates, top man ('One thirty to Martin Whitehead but it never came' - Spot the song!)).

Thanks Jeff.

Truly wonderful stuff. I got the original C86 LP when it came out and do have a massive ammount of the stuff on the CD86.
The bands on there are part of my life in a very big way. Great to see faves like The Clouds and The Boy Hairdressers next to each other, both have a young Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub in them if I remember correctly.

Thank you again.

I’m (not in a funny way) a few years younger than you, and yet there are a fair few bands on there that were massively part of my youth. Primal Scream, Jesus & Mary Chain, Soup Dragons, PWEI, for example. Happy times.

Anyway.
Something different I'm listening to lately. All of a sudden I've become old. Old and listening to Very American music (generaly as I listen to WFMU.org).

None of you will like this soft old music but I do (don't worry, not all is 'soft').

Out May/June 2020.
Country Westerns - Gentle Soul:

(wfmu.org is THE best radio station - shame that we cannot have this kind of format in the UK).

I've just got a new turntable, so I can play records for the first time in years. An Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB. Very happy with it. It's a copy of the Technics SL-1200 I wanted in the eighties but could never afford.


I've got records I've not listened to for 30+ years, so I'm working my way through the ones I've not got on CD/MP3.

I'm currently listening to The History of Sparks, an LP released in 1981. I believe it wasn't released in the UK and was only available on import.
It's still got its Revolver £7.99 sticker on. That's probably the most I've ever paid for a record.

Two of the records I was looking forward to playing now I have something to play them on were Kraftwerk's Autobahn, and Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures. But I can't find them.

About 15 years ago when I needed to downsize I had a cull of records. Got rid of hundreds.
I think at the time my aim was to keep "collecatble" items, and things I didn't think would be released in digital format, so it may have seemed sensible to get rid of them at the time.


Now listening to Shabini by the Bhundu Boys. Released in 1986 on Discafrique records.

Like you Jeff i recently bought a turntable, amp and speakers to resurrect my vinyl. Tonight I've been playing Esther Phillips Kudu album Esther Phillips which includes Home is where the hatred is among many others, and Collins and Collins with Top of the stairs and You know how to make me feel so good etc. To those who don't know, there is nothing, and I mean nothing like that hit you get when the needle drops on a tune that takes you to your youth. Bliss.
