They all caught me by surprise honestly.

Started off with The Incessant by Meat Wave, then moved on to the Smashing Pumpkins 1993 Metro Show. Siva in particular, that screaming when the song comes back in is amazing.

Never heard that far back to be honest. This came up in my 1001 albums list. I’m not sure about R.E.M. so it’s good to delve. I think At My Most Beautiful and Daysleeper might be two of the loveliest songs ever written, and Losing My Religion is obviously great. I’ve got Out Of Time which I like, and Automatic For The People which I like less.

On the way into work: Mount Eerie and a bit of Either/Or
Back: Kendrick, a mate’s band and Seapony

That’s my favourite Jansch album, so good. Nobody’s Bar is a great tune

Been listening to lots of John Lurie after someone posted one of the Marvin Pontiac tunes on facebum. Glorious Waitsy weirdo jazz blues pop. Also been investigating Snoop Dogg’s oeuvre, had Tha Blue Carpet Treatment on and really enjoyed it. Lots of his albums only a couple of quid on Amazon so might have to take the plunge

I bought this compilation album from an Asda nearby with pocket money in 1992. That’s easily my most listened to album ever. Reminds me of my GCSEs and A Levels. I’m 40 did my GCSEs in '92 and A Levels in '94. Some albums remind you of or are the soundtrack to certain parts of your life.

Not sure if that link works. But hopefully this one does (probably won’t). Such an amazing album albeit a Best Of
