# On The CD Player Today (take 6)


This week the score draws are plentiful
Record player but...

Bedsitter - Soft Cell

Bit of early 80s electro that you just knew would stand the test of time. Too weird and seedy and ran in the face of the Tokyo/Caribbean yachts crap of the era and genre.

On a personal level, despite being a tribal shouty guitars kid at the time, our family ended up in bedsit land of sorts in the 80s and it spoke to me a lot.

Matmos - Ultimate Care II

Undoubtedly the best ever example of its genre (name me a better washing machine album).


Well-Known Member
Happy Mondays - Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out)

Is it controversial to say this is the best Mondays album?


Massive prawns
Kings X - Out Of The Silent Planet. Haven't listened to them in ages. So good. Kind of soulful Christian hard rock. I'm not a person of faith myself but it's great music.


One on one? You're crazy.
Played a lot of The Cars this morning, following the news that Ric Ocasek had died - a fave band when I was a teenager :(
