    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.

    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    I'll have a go at this, but I'm also going to start a new thread for your Top 10 Favourite Albums by Artists that are not in your lists of favourite Bands or Solo Artists.

    Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere - Neil Young
    Beggars Banquet - Rolling Stones
    Tommy - The Who
    Rhinos, Winos and Lunatics - Man
    If4 - If
    Pendulum - Creedence Clearwater Revival
    Abbey Road - The Beatles
    Village Green Preservation Society - Kinks
    Max - The Rumour
    Ring of Hands - Argent
    Thank Christ for the Bomb - Groundhogs
    River - Terry Reid

    Yes, I know that's 12 rather than 10, but I'm taking back control and using imperial units.


    ...and if I borrow English Settlement - XTC from Pubsignman, that'll make a nice round Baker's Dozen!
    Come On You Hatters!

    I'm not even going to try and limit it to ten. I spent more time trimming the list from thirty to twenty, than I did compiling the thirty.

    JJ Cale - Shades.
    Kate Bush - Aerial.
    John Martyn - Solid Air.
    Joni Mitchell - Hissing of Summer Lawns.
    Bob Dylan - Desire.
    Working Week - Working Nights.
    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue.
    Zero 7 - When it Falls.
    PJ Harvey - Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea.
    Ian Dury & The Blockheads - New Boots & Panties.
    Gotan Project - La Revancha Del Tango.
    David Bowie - Aladdin Sane.
    Patti Smith - Horses.
    Nick Cave & Bad Seeds - The Boatman's Call.
    Steely Dan - Countdown to Ecstasy.
    Fun Lovin' Criminals - Come Find Yourself.
    Thievery Corporation - Richest Man in Babylon.
