    Default Favourite Albums

    As we've had a few music related lists the next logical step is probably favourite albums. So here's a top 10 of mine (subject to change):

    Never Mind The Bollocks - Sex Pistols
    Daydream Nation - Sonic Youth
    Any Half Man Half Biscuit album
    Stone Roses - Stone Roses
    Psychocandy - Jesus And Mary Chain
    If I Should Fall From Grace With God - The Pogues
    George Best - Wedding Present
    Heaven Up Here - Echo And The Bunnymen
    Madonna - And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
    Dirty - Sonic Youth.

    Some will probably change over the next few weeks.
