Mine was Manic Street Preachers, everything must go.
Luckily Mum already had "Dire Straits - Love over gold" or would have to admit to that. Phew.
Would rather have 'Love Over Gold' than 'Under a Blood Red Sky' any day.
I'm sorry to say.
owned? Simpsons Sing the Blues
if you mean bought with my own money, I'm not sure, but Alice in Chains' self-titled is what immediately comes to mind.
Sold 1.2 million copies in the first year of release in Britain alone. Five top 5 UK singles, including a number one. HUGE.
sound track to bill and teds bogus journey
My Aunty gave me a £20 Our Price voucher for my 10th birthday (she worked there and presumably got a decent discount) so I bought 'Money for Nothing' by Dire Straits and 'Monty Python Sings' on CD. That was 1989 so CDs were pretty expensive so my mum put the rest of money towards it. It wasn't until I was 12 that I actually had any real money to spend and when I did the first I bought was Schubert Dip by EMF on cassette from a service station on the M4.
Which I am very proud of, although I think a burgeoning interest in Debbie Harry had more to do with it than good musical taste.
On cassette from Woolworths in about '92. Had to buy it again a few years later because I wore the tape out.
I bought it because I loved Wayne's World.
Must have bought it about 18 years ago or something, can't say I'm too keen on Queen these days bar a few bangers (Seven Seas of Rhye is a fucking banger) but I still love Wayne's World.
But it was in 2001 rather than 1994.
It was either the soundtrack to the Footrot Flats movie (cartoon about a New Zealand farmer, with his dog as protagonist);
or Genesis - Genesis.
or Primal Scream - XTMTR
Girls in leather trousers and loud guitars. The start of a lifetime love affair (not necessarily both at the same time).
And it's still one of my favourites
It was Ace of Base.
