Ah, fond memories of my first ever Glastonbury - 1986 - he blew the place away.

Back to the Gin Blossoms and the "Congratulations I'm Sorry" album.

Picked up a few albums from the thrift shoppe today

Regina Spektor : Begin To Hope

Got this because I believe she did the Orange Is The New Black theme song, which is quite catchy. This album sounds a lot more pop-ish than that song. Very Apple-Ad friendly. Not my cup of tea but for a $1 I can't complain

t.A.T.u : 200KM/H In The Wrong Lane

A throwback song to my younger days of downloading a music video on dial up just to watch Russian girls make out! Not just me mind you, there were a group of us at a friends house. Album is nothing special but it was worth the price of admission for a few minutes of nostalgia.

One Bad Pig : Swine Flew

Never heard of these lot. 90's Christian punk apparently. Listened to it in the car. Not bad. Now I've googled them I've noticed the pig on the cover is wearing a cross earring.

Snake River Conspiracy : Sonic Jihad


And finally we get to the best of the bunch. Looks like they only made one full length album which is a shame because they sound bloody good. I'd never heard of them and grabbed it because of the album name. If you enjoy industrial electronic music give them a go.

Magic stuff Smith!

Listened to this again realised how I'd missed it.

I was enough of a goth to love the Cult. Still love them.

 But for a while, in my late teens and early twenties, it was electronic or nothing - and I've just rediscovered Dubnobasswithmyheadman, the album they did before all that shouty Born Slippy silliness.  I remember it utterly blowing me away in the same way Iggy Pop did when I first heard him, and now I realise it's still frikkin awesome (even though it now has the added effect of filling me with agonizing feelings of nostalgia).

Twenty-five years later (blimey!) and there still aren't too many tracks better than Rez.

25 years! Holy sneck. And i forgot to mention the band: Underworld. I have very fond memories of punching the air to them in dry-ice filled festival dance tents, surrounded by the happiest and liveliest audience their has ever been.
Kids today will never get the same buzz at their Ed fucking Sheeran gigs (obligatory grumpy old man dig at the yoof of today).

I'm listening to a random mp3 that I've had sitting around for years - a John Peel Virgin in-store show from October 16th 1979 (Part 2, apparently) - and there's a band there that I'd like to know more about...  I was going to ask here for info but at least I've just found the track on the Tube of You:

The Freshmen from 1979.

(That track reached #17 in the Irish charts, I just found out.)
