One of the reasons that, during the last couple of years, I have retaken a keen interest in contemporary guitar-based music is that so many bands are ransacking the very early eighties for influences, riffs, production style, etc. It remains my favourite epoch, musically, though I suppose for most people what they enjoy when they are 16-18 remains their favourite. However, some classic LPs from that time don't get nearly enough mentions; which of the following LPs do you have (downloaded from Soulless)?
The Sound - eponymous debut
Comsat Angels - 'Waiting For A Miracle', 'Sleep No More' and 'Fiction'
Section 25 - 'Always Now'
Girls At Our Best - 'Pleasure'
Young Marble Giants - 'Colossal Youth'
If you haven't listened to them then I suggest you do.
