    I'm listening to #3 and the PWEI cover of Mighty Lemon Drops came on and made my head explode. You have a fan. I'm all set to explore 1,2,4&5.

    Loved the Tedford piece BTW.

    glad you're enjoying it all.
    it's good to get all this stuff off my chest.

    Just thought I'd say I'm enjoying the blog: it's interesting to read someones memories of a period which you lived through yourself (Sinatra's - I'd nearly forgotten it)...

    On an incidental note: my wife was (and still is) a giant fan of Postcard Records, Television Personalities, and so on: her best friend was the singer in The Sea Urchins (She now runs a vintage clothes shop in Waterloo, London: we visited her about 2 weeks ago - she has just been filmed by Bob Stanley from St Etienne for a film about what became known as 'C86'. And Lawrence Felt stayed on her sofa for a bit a month or two ago)...

    And on the metal front: I am one of the 2 founder members of Napalm Death (back in 1981) - I left after recording Side 1 of the 'Scum' album (as I didn't really want to be in a commercial heavy metal band)...As a band in the mid-80's, we were very keen on Swans, Tools You Can Trust, JAMC, Big Flame etc (we'd grown up with a healthy interest in Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, Human League, Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins and so on alongside blistering thrash and noise) in the mid-80's...

    Take care,

    Nic Bullen

    hi

    i have been stopping by your blog for a while now and i have to say that it has become my fave blog of all. whilst the soundtrack to my teens featured a great many of the bands you speak of on your blog, for reasons relating to geography i never "experienced" the scene - (cape town south africa was hardly c86-central). mind you, you would probably be amazed at some of the bands that got played on national radio in this country back then! i reckon the june brides probably got more national airplay in Sa than they did back home!

    anyway, i would have loved to have been living in your part of the world back then - prepostorous times indeed!

    thanks again!
    miguel

    hello.
    thanks for the nice words.

    there must have been some bands happening in SA - not UK-indie types neccessarily - but there must have been some!
