realise there was more music in the world than just top of the pops?
This thread had better just be a list or numbers, or I'm LEAVING.
I distinctly remember seeing Suede on Top of the Pops when i was 12. They were doing "Stay Together". And i could not understand how anyone could like that kinda stuff. However, a couple of years later i was very much into "that kinda stuff". Weird.
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
thanks SHADY!! ;P
I was a late developer...
First band I liked were the Levellers...when I was about 9 or 10. So there.
I can pin point the very day in fact, I bought the Right Said Fred album and The White Room by KLF in the same purchase at my local Our Price.
Didn't like either, as it turned out.
when did ok computer come out?that year for me
my dad said "here listen to this, its better than the shit you listen to"
he wasnt wrong
when I was 10 he'd have corrected himself to sugar.
Your Dad sounds horrid.
it gave pretty much every album 3/5.
I wish Select was still going.
my dads record collection consists of pink floyd, hawkwind and other assorted spacerock, prog and punk
But it was probably because I saw Blink 182 or The Offspring on Top Of The Pops in the first place
yeah his collection is basically prog but radiohead were one of the "newer" bands he liked/still likes
but he was the one who introduced me to rage against the machine
I blame my dad and his prog collection
but i only paid attention to top of the pops when it had blur and pulp on, so i guess i was always safe.
14/15 when i discovered supergrass/oasis/radiohead/nirvana/hole in a fairly short period of time. Then again, they were all on totp...
Hearing my Dad play Cabaret Voltaire in the car when we were on the way to Highcliffe. I then re-realised at about 13, when I heard Korn, I remember thinking 'wow, the singer barks and grunts and everything!'
about the ITV chart show on Sat mornings as Thursday night's TOTPs. But . . . probably 13.
Watching the chart show when i was about 12 and wondering what the hell the indie chart was, I thought it was a chart for indian music or something!
the indie chart or rock chart every week. I was so gutted when the dance chart came up. Ah the Video Vault always made me smile.
thank you seattle grunge era.
Seafood were the first proper 'underground' band i was into.
also, lots of people seem to be misunderstanding this thread...
around 8 years old maybe. My dad used to tape John Peel and I'd listen to it with him.
My brother in law played me From Her to Eternity by Nick Cave and almost instantly I realised that Fantastic by Wham was not the greatest album ever.
My parents have great tastes, but I started developing my own around first year, around when I started to skate etc.
suppose it was when i started obsessing over No Doubt at 10 or so (Tragic Kingdom), i realise that they have probably been on top of the pops a lot but opened my eyes to stuff you know.
when I realised how AMAZING The Vines were.
playing Def Maybe and Morning Glory to death, then discovering The Beatles at about 7, so I didn't worship the charts.
I used to LOVE S Club 7 and things like Mambo Number 5 though. Yeha.
that'd be sarcasm.
Craig Nicholls only stopped being my hero about a year ago when I reobsessed myself with Paul McCartney.
the beginning of my rage against the machine phase
was great in the mid 90s!
I wasd always around good music so probably like 5 or something
I bought a Sam Brown single that didn't get into the chart, i thought that was COOL. I bought whatever I wanted from thereon and my m
you crayzeees should be posting these things on the front page DiScussion.
as was everyones
like, I got into 'good' music when I was 13, but it would all still have been on Top of the Pops. So it would have been at 14 for me I think, when I starting picking up on other things in NME and then listening to John Peel.
