Right - I picked this up at Dearie Me
Following a chain, from Cllr Andrew Brown
"Copy the list on to your blog, put in bold the ones you have listened to (completely from begining to end) and then add three more albums that you think people should have heard before they turn into their parents - remember, it isn't necessarily your most favourite albums but the ones you think people should listen to... and when we say listen we mean from track one through to the end...
If you put a link to your follow-on post in the comments of the site where you found it, the chain will be trackable."
Mike adds: "From now on, you are also allowed to DELETE up to THREE albums on the existing list, if you feel a) that this is an album which should not reasonably be foisted upon anybody, or b) that one Steve Earle album is quite enough for one lifetime, thank you."
Okay ... here's my stab at this....
London Calling - The Clash
Think Tank - Blur
Moon Safari - Air
Elastica - Elastica
Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols - Sex Pistols
OK Computer - Radiohead
The Kiss of Morning - Graham Coxon
The Wall - Pink Floyd
Setting Sons - The Jam
Train a Comin' - Steve Earle
Folksinger - Phranc
Come From the Shadows - Joan Baez
The River - Bruce Springsteen
What's Going On - Marvin Gaye
Metal Box - Public Image Ltd
Orbital #2 (The Brown Album) - Orbital
Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain - Pavement
Marquee Moon - Televison
Daydream Nation - Sonic Youth
New York - Lou Reed
Everything's Alright Forever - The Boo Radleys
The Power Out - Electrelane
The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
Hatful of Hollow - The Smiths
Boy Child - Scott Walker
The ones I've deleted:
The Very Best of Joan Armatrading - Joan Armatrading (sorry, deletion based on my ignorance)
This is Hardcore - Pulp (great band - not a great album)
Apple Venus Vol. 1 - XTC (sorry... not for me)
So many others that I could put on here, and possibly harsh to delete Pulp (an album I own and quite like) when there are others on the list that I haven't listened to.... well, I looked them all up and decided that perhaps I would quite like to listen to some of them. To be honest, the only thing I have against XTC is that there was a guy on Mastermind answering questions on this the other week, and he was a total dweeb... which is ok ... what really got me is that he reckoned the reason that they weren't the biggest band in the world was because they stopped touring. What? Didn't the Beatles stop touring in 1965? They were pretty big after that, weren't they?
Anyway - one of you lot must want to take this on??? Anyone?? Bueller?
(I should add that only person can claim this at a time... post a link in the comments here to your followup, and then someone else should pick it up from there... make sense?)
