and getting well into music.
How old were you in 1995??
is that all you want to know?
and heavily into whats the story morning glory
Thread of the Day.
And getting well into music.
and going through my ill fated Fatboy Slim/Bentley Rhythm Ace phase
There is nothing wrong about BRA..the album still holds up.
I lose :(
I am the ultimate loser!
erm, i was already 'into' music, because of my parents.
in more ways than one :(
I think I liked hardcore ( of the dance variety) and jungle as well as RATM and Nirvana.
and interested in nothing other than horses
but the taste only got good at around 13
interested in pubs and shed 7. Season Ticket holder for Premiership Champions Blackburn Rovers.
TELL US HOW OLD YOU WERE IN A RANDOM YEAR! IN 1932 I WAS -48! A TWINKLE IN MY GRANDAD'S WALLET!
I was very much into the music of The Spice Girls.
I knew nothing about football or music.
I didn't even know what music was.
and was a total top 40 kid
and listening to Monster every day.
my dad had automatic for the people (on cd).
except my Dad's never heard of REM.
for the first 47 days, 21 for the remaining 318.
I was listening to Pavement a lot (and RHCP).
I was into Radiohead, The Cranberries and Roy Orbison! Not looking forwards to being 28 this year, I tell you...
and i was admiring the talents of Uwe Rosler.
he reverted back after that
And getting well into pretending to be a dog. My name was Buster But and it was pretty much a full time occupation. I even ate out of dishes on the floor.
obsessed with Blur. Well into music.
and majoring in PWEI, Carter USM, Neds Atomic Dustbin and Mega City Four!
Could not stop listening thereafter.
oasis, lightning seeds and craig short
for 11 and 1/2 months of it
First festival that year (Reading).
Price? £67-ish, I think.
the programme and The following weeks Melody Maker special.
Hoard hoard hoard.
was fucking ace. Beck, Hole, Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins all back to back on the friday.....them was the days.
I sat my GCSEs in 95
and one year away from properly finding music, which occured when I first heard Something For The Weekend by Super Furry Animals. So I was probably listening to Jollification.
it was all about Therapy? and Nine Inch Nails
credit where its due, Ian Broudie probably kick started my love of music.
Radiohead, Blur, Pulp and sneaking into pubs to drink halfs of cider. Good times.
but its no Dizzy Heights.
probably listening to Born In The USA in the car with my dad.
happy days being completely oblivious to most of the worlds problems.
Listening mainly too;
The Flaming Lips
Overkilling Portishead’s Dummy
& The Holy Bible
I seem to remember discovering The Bonzos in this year as well, and to my relief I realised Music could have a sense of humour.
and probably listening to a random assortment of music which i used to tape off the radio.
and listening to the Evening Session ever night and being obsessed with the Boo Radleys and Blur
depending on the month
I played the piano pretty well back then, and knew all the words to 'When I'm Sixty Four'. Woo!
i had some NOW's on the go if i remember
That year I went to see Oasis, Blur and REM.
I also seem to remember a worrying liking for happy hardcore and glowsticks.
and a ready spending most of my money on CDs
and getting excited about seeing myself on the local news.
Knew all the words to Sgt. Pepper and listened to lots of house and old punk records at home (the above tastes inherited from my mum) and I was a sneaky rebel and listened to jungle and bad rap compilations (which my mum didn't approve of)
At The Barrowlands rocking out to Fugazi.
and enjoying cushion fights with my brothers.
and a goth. Yeah!
and getting my first grey hair, its only got worse since then..
and mostly listening to dodgy Britpop compilation albums.
Seem to remember it being a pretty good year.
I had just completed the transition from Nirvana & Metallica et al to Oasis & Manic Street Preachers
Probably more interested in Biker Mice From Mars and James Bond Jr.
This isn't getting into the weekly mailout, btw, ftw, etc, et al.
i owned 5 metallica albums, 3 sepultura ones, 2 pantera ones a nailbomb one some offspring, 2 biohazards, a dog eat dog one and an ep, 2 body count ones, some therapy?, aerosmith, earache samplers, some nirvana, machine head, fear factory, downset, lots of other stuff, and was concerned about my secsuality because i liked blur.
Madder Rose!! (prob 94 but they deserve a mention)
And had loved the fact that East 17 had been Christmas number one the year previous...
and I didn't like anything that wasn't to do with dinosaurs, so the Jurassic Park theme was my favourite bit of music ever.
Don't think I was 'in' to music, but I liked listening to the old 60's-based music stations in Miami. Motown, early Beatles etc.
Premier League Sticker Books, the Green Power Ranger and the Noddy fork were my life.
And still enjoying sesame street.
The tunes on sesame street were fucking amazing though, so I was still into music, in a sense.
Therapy?, Wildhearts, Baby Chaos, Metallica, Sepultura, Nirvana, NOFX, Rancid, Green Day
were my slightly mopey teenage world back then!
Enjoying The Beatles, 'Chantilly Lace' and probably a lot of Motown/dance.
The first popstar I remember seeing on TV was Robyn, oddly enough, on Live and Kicking. I didn't like her then, and don't now either!
and into Mud
keegan was king of tyneside and i was living with my parents.
oh how things change!
and listening to a lot of Britpop guff
fuck i'm old...
and all I did was sleep, go to school and play football in the garden. I used to do a passable impression of Mark Bosnich in goal.
depending on when in 1995. Got Supergrass' "I Should Coco" and "Definitely Maybe" for Christmas that year I think.
Went to America that year and asked some guy in a record store if he had any Oasis, I think they did but he tried to sell me some Dogstar instead. Looking back it must have been a little strange for him trying to sell Dogstar to a 9 year old English kid.
i can barely remember anything!
hmm.. i feel qutie old.
i didnt get into music until i was 14. so i missed the joys of 1995.
all i did was listen to my Bon Jovi back catalogue non stop. 1996 was when i properly started getting into music (that wasn't Bon Jovi)
watching postman pat, probably
surprisingly credible music taste at that age. i liked my britpop (oasis, blur et al)
the year where i began to properly follow football.
Going through this thread, i dont feel that old anymore
Probably not into real music, but hey! Ipswich were in the premiership. Even if we did get relegated. And concede 90 something goals. And win 7 games that year.
and loving anything that my Mum disliked - therefore I had turned my back on folk music which I was brought up on.
Now 13 years on I'm back loving the folk music but still disliking what my Mum listens to these days! (She is now a fan of Michael Buble :( )
