Many thanks, I've been all over the (virtual) world since I was last here.

Do you have any favourites amongst this list, I've got to say that Wire's 'Pink Flag' is an astounding album, I had no idea it was so good as I only discovered it recently

I do indeed, an eclectic list you had there and these are the ones I especially enjoy :)

The Wonderful And Frightening World Of The Fall - The Fall
Doremi Fasol Latido - Hawkwind
One Size Fits All - Frank Zappa
Jammy Smears - Ivor Cutler

Nice to see Ivor Cutler mentioned on the forum! The Wire album is one of those I downloaded some time ago but never really listened to, I will need to remedy this and give it a spin. I love the cover My Bloody Valentine did of "Map Ref 41N 93W", which was what sparked my interest to seek them out:

Re: *****THIS WEEK'S TOP 10 ALBUMS*****

Thanks, that was a nice MBV track, I don't know Wire's original yet as I only have 'Pink Flag' at the mo, I'm getting 'Chairs Missing' and '154' this week as it happens, I feel like I'm catching up with a band who are far more influential and important than I realised, 'Pink Flag' sounds miles ahead of other Post Punk New Wave bands from 1977.
I'm glad you've heard of Ivor Cutler, a lot of folk haven't a clue who he is or was, I've been listening to 'Velvet Donkey' and 'Dandruff' too, the guy was brilliant, my 2 favourite poets of the 20th century are Mr Cutler and Ian Dury.
I'm on a big Fall trip at the moment too, I've liked them since I saw them live in Southampton back in 1986 and managed to get back stage after the gig to have a beer with them (Newcastle Brown Ale) great memories…..

Ivor Cutler. Brilliant.

I have a few Wire albums - I actually prefer their later stuff to the punky Pink Flag, but always a cool band. Never been too keen on the vocals, but otherwise they are pretty great.
