Space - Spiders
Kula Shaker - K.
Both late-entry Britpop players released in Autumn 1996. I bought K on cassette and taped Spiders off my friend who bought it on the same day. He copied ‘K’ off me.
Alkaline Trio - Good Mourning
Maximilian Hecker - Rose
2003 Horrifying now to think I spent the best part of £30 on these two, but they both had a couple of winners on them
Kings of Leon - Youth and Young Manhood
The Darkness - Permission to Land.
Early summer 2003. I remember buying Permission to Land from Sainsbury’s and then having a (in hindsight) pathetic argument with a friend about which band was more “rock n’ roll”
Andrew WK - The Wolf
The Rapture- Echoes
Patrick Wolf - Lycanthropy
All in August (I think) in 2003. I bought all three from MVC in my home town. IIRC there was only one copy of each album in the shop on release, such was the ways of MVC. Copied all of them to cassette when I got home and had them on replay on my walkman for weeks. No idea which one holds up best now.
Great thread. Anyone else?
I guess I’m interesting if anyone bought Use Your Illusion 1 and 2, and Human Touch / Lucky Town on the day of release. Have any other bands done this since?
