Marc Bolan & T.Rex: Marc – Songs From The Granada TV Series – So Marc had a telly show and this is some of his excellent tunes from that show. There is a little dialogue as well, mainly Marc saying ‘Hi, I’m Marc”.
Tori Amos: From The Choirgirl Hotel – Album number four from Tori, and her first full band record, no tinkling of the ivories on this. Quite spiffing it is.
Living Colour: Time’s Up – Wow, this has not dated as much as I thought it would have. These guys were all the rage aye? There are 3 bonus tracks on this, one is Pere Ubu’s great Final Solution song done live. Nice.
Cut Off Your Hands: You & I – These dudes are a New Zealand post-punk band, and pretty listenable it is too. Never heard of them before. Took me a while to get around to listening to this, I didn’t even realise they were from NZ.
Feist: Metals – Nice Feist. Top stuff, have an earlier record by her as well, need to get more.
The Mission OST: I remember this being an OK film, have to watch it again, tops soundtrack from the immortal Ennio.
