Re: Best ever year for album releases

Punk changed everything for me. Seeing the Pistols play Pretty Vacant on Top of the Pops when I was 13 remains the most important musical moment of my life. My 'before and after' moment. I'd heard about punk but never heard actually heard any of the music. I sat there, jaw agape, at the incredible s...

Re: Best ever year for album releases

The one thing I wouldn’t agree with Runcible on is The Damned LP. I would put Unknown Pleasures and Metal Box in joint first place. Fair enough but that Damned album is a totally subjective choice.

Best ever year for album releases

Here's a new game. I've often thought about significant years for music, but then I thought about albums that came out in certain years and how important that year then became in music history. So... The idea is to select a year that has been a particular highlight. It'd be easy to go for something ...

Re: What Are You Listening To Now?

I'm very much not an expert on Russian psychedelic music but Sula Bassana, who has many fans on this forum, certainly is. He added a link to the 'Psych Fans' Facebook group yesterday. Turns out this whole EP is just $1 to download which is one of the best value transactions I've ever done! This is q...

Re: New stuff from Pete this year?

Pete was on Reddit answering questions yesterday. Anyone chime in? It was here:
