When I was 10, I bought the 7" of "Birdhouse in Your Soul" and learned all the words.
I learnt all the words to slight return by The Bluetones.
and I bought the 7", having been shocked that it was being sold in Woolworths.
My dad bought me on tape.
I got bought green day's kerplunk when I was 6 on tape. I still have it.
I also had a XL pulp tshirt when I was 10, it drowned me.
'But why do you like him? He's dead!', I shrieked.
I was already an avid fan of 'Whose Line is it Anyway?' with Greg Proops, Ryan Stiles and Tony Slattery.
I also don't need to be self-consciously retro. When I was 8 some of my favourite artists included Buddy Holly and Del Shannon!
and Jeff Wayne's 'War of the Worlds'.
"Wayne of the Worlds"?
'War of the Waynes'?
with my dad, he used to sing 'you say you're Cheep but you're too much' at me, therefore I grew up thinking a Gang of Four song was a nursery rhyme.
i don't have any childhood indie credentuals
my Dad told me Nirvana were rubbish cos it was all just loud shouty music with no proper instruments, like Cellos.
I played him the unplugged album. he was pwned.
for christmas when i was 11, what a great present. prior to that i was on a diet of guns n roses, aerosmith, poison & queen :)
i have a lot to thank my sisters for.
birdhouse in your soul, the video was amazing.
"after the watershed" by Carter USM for a present when I was 8.
And I got the first Sleeper album for my 10th birthday.
your story is better.
I wore a Carter USM t-shirt to my Year 6 leaving party, but no girl would dance with me. Was it the shirt or me?
i had (maybe still have somewhere) a blur popscene t-shirt which drowned me, that was quite cool. i wouldn't even attempt to dance with girls then, or now, though.
I used to wear my brother's "1992" Carter t-shirt, it was way too big for me.
I found photos of my Year 6 leaving party a few years ago. I was wearing a Smashing Pumpkins t-shirt, despite not being aware I ever owned one.
it was that t-shirt (of my older brothers that I was wearing). Blimey.
I think that incident put me off women for life
on tape. I was seven i think.
it OWNS everything posted above and below.
tell me how many singles were released from Bad as I'm pretty sure it was the whole album?
michael jackson on the bad tour
I *think* i was 4 when that happened - i wasn't allowed to go cos we 'couldn't get daniel a ticket' i.e. i was 4.
apart from he left on a helicopter at the end and i was very far away from the stage
video for the title track of that LP.
to Franz Ferdinand aged 16 months !
you should be strung up for that
She just liked 'take me out' a lot.
She's over it now...
I bought my first Joy Division LP.
...or was it Eddy Grant? Yes, it was Eddy Grant.

was one of my first too, with HMV vouchers I got for Christmas.
I wrote the song "Yours is a Poo Face" which was later recorded by the Pixies as "Brick is Red."
releasing vinyl singles for local bands I felt weren't getting enough attention
and at only 2 months old, I started an indie radio station in my bedroom and turned my garage into a recording studio and rehersal room for struggling bands.
i started an indie fanzine reviewing new releases in the world of german techno
I invented indie music.
i formed popular indie combo Beat Happening
& little house on the praire.
i knew every word to what's the story morning glory. i'm not sure that that's something to be proud of though...
I backed one of my books with a photocopy of kurt cobain's suicide note.
dark, but i thought i was the coolest.
