I know smileys are a little annoying, but they do help sometimes. *smile* (that's a smile by the way)

Played a bit of Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin, followed by......

Cocteau Twins - Head Over Heels

Sinead O'Connor - The Lion & The Cobra (Doesn't stand up very well these days, but the opening track 'Jackie' is still pretty stunning.

The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead

Where is the old duffer? I rather miss him or, rather, I miss his often faintly ridiculous posts; there, that should do it: I know he likes an argument.

The following were chosen entirely at random from a few crates and have escaped my rigorous attempts to catalog them. Shame on me.

'More Bob Dylan Greatest Hits'.

The Peanut Butter Conspiracy: ' The Great Conspiracy'.

Leonard Cohen: ' Songs From A Room'.

T.I.M.E. : ' Smooth Ball'.

Dany Kirwan: 'Hello There Big Boy'.

'Blue Note's Three Decades Of Jazz, Volume 1: 1939-1949'.

Apologies for the format but as I've been unable to source a copy on vinyl (everywhere seems to be sold out) I have to mention the following album that I have been streaming over and over as I just cannot get enough of it. It works brilliantly as a cohesive whole.

Public Service Broadcasting - The Race For Space

On actual vinyl I've been listening to -

Lonely Robot - Please Come Home

Daft Punk - Random Access Memories

Van Halen - 5150

Looks as though a recent purchase (King of the Rumbling Spires 7"), which was badly scratched, has wrecked my stylus. Luckily I was replacing it anyway and had just ordered a new one, but it means no more records for me until it arrives and I've managed to fit it. Pah.

The Human League (Unlimited Orchestra) - Love And Dancing

I've loved this album since I was about 11 years old and my mate Ant's older brother Graham used to play it over and over. We're all still friends now 30 odd years later and it is still a magnificent listen.

I never lent my vinyl to mates. Always happy to copy it to cassette though. That was based on a bit of advice from my late Dad: "Never lend your tools, son, if you want them back in good condition".

Public Service Broadcasting - The Race For Space

After waiting some time to track down a copy. It's a fantastic album in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with a lovely full size booklet, the vinyl sounds great and very clean indeed.

Glad to see someone else likes Labradford. I only have 'E Luxo So' and 'Mi Media Naranja', and only on CD, but I love both albums.

A few of my mates are big Butthole Surfers fans. My abiding memory, is seeing them at Reading Festival (can't remember the year), and them coming on the stage and smashing everything to pieces before they even played anything. They then played so loud that I had to move back to where my mates were, who of course laughed at me, and instantly went to the front, only to return 5 minutes later, with ringing ears. *smile*

Now, I know little about Purson, but I did add a note to my phone about a track I heard by them called 'Danse Macabre', so I will have to investigate them further.

Not heard those two but I do have 'A Stable Reference' on CD which I first heard on the John Peel show back in the day.

A great live band. You're never quite sure what you are going to get, but you know it will be mad.

Rosalie Cunningham... go see them live. She plays a mean lead guitar, sings and generally holds most of the male audience captivated for the whole show. I like the album a lot.
