Robyn Hitchcock

Robyn Hitchcock and The Egyptians – Gotta Let this Hen Out

First saw Robyn live at The Richmond in Brighton around 1985 and he was performing this live album. A compilation of Soft Boy’s tunes and early Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians’s tunes everyone a winner! I always remember seeing him on ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’ dressed in a black and white chequered suit! Great…

The Church

The Church – Starfish

Favourite album by this Australian band from the late 1980’s. ‘Under the Milky Way’ is fantastic  One of the only songs to feature bagpipes too ! The whole album is packed with great shimmering 6 and 12 string guitars courtesy of Marty Wilson-Piper. Great songs and a timeless mood make this one of the…

The Fall

The Fall – Bend Sinister

Another Nabokov inspired title ! 3rd Fall album produced by John Leckie. Mark E.Smith pushed to have the album mastered from an old cassette he had of the demos ! I think it epitomises the early art rock sound of Fall full of gloomy down beat sentiment. Its difficult to say which album is my…

The Cure

The Cure – Seventeen Seconds

Minimalist Dark Hypnotic Psychedelic Edgy Defo my fave Cure album by far….. All you need from this band !  

The Pixies

The Pixies – Doolittle

Summer of 88 ! Blissful power indie pop from Mr Black and co… Raw edgy guitars and garage band production took this band and album to another place! ‘This Monkeys gone to Heaven’ is a great song and ‘Wave of Mutilation’ two of my favourites. Play loud!

The Stone Roses

The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses

Early baggy Britpop rockers the Stone Roses strike gold with this sublime debut album. Again staked with great tunes and chiming guitars. Thumping bass from Mani.

House of Love

House of Love – House of Love

Shoe gazing bliss from Guy Chadwick and Terry Bickers and The House of Love from 1987…. this album always reminds me  of being at collage studying engineering. One of those albums that’s great beginning to end ! Chiming guitars, lots of reverb and a great mood, especially the hit ‘Christine’ My all time time fave…
