Yeah, my mistake, I was thinking of The Perfect Prescription, which was released in 87
A good year for gigs:
Glenn Branca: Symphony no. 6 (Devil Choirs at the Gates of Heaven). Queen Elizabeth Hall, 30th January 1988.
Butthole Surfers, Loop, The Shrubs. University of London Union, 26th February 1988.
Spacemen 3. Dingwalls, 28th March 1988.
Psychic TV, Spacemen 3, Hiding Place. Astoria, Sat Apr 30 1988.
Skinny Puppy plus comedian. Fulham Greyhound, 21st May 1988.
Throbbing Gristle Ltd. Astoria, 3rd June 1988.
Foetus Interruptus, Tackhead Soundsystem. Town and Country Club, 20th September 1988.
Butthole Surfers Brixton Academy 23 September 1988.
After that it all gets a bit blurry...
I also had the tape of this wiki has it as a Feb 89 release though.
probably not going to be on many lists, but the final gig by The Sting-Rays was released in '88. great stuff!
That was a good year.
Metallica can fuck off. AJFA was the beginning of the end for them. I've left Anthrax and Nuclear Assault on from my metal days but I haven't listened to any Metallica apart from the first two albums since I was a teenager.
Damn right it counts
1st 3 albums fucking amazing.
they went shit when cliff died and fucking crappier when lars sued that 11 year old.
Surfer Rosa was released as 'an album' in '88,so it counts, however it was rereleased later
Master of Puppets is still worth a spin.
I'm with you. It was 1989
(also the album they did with Lou Reed is brilliant)
I miscounted their albums. Virtual Blue is spot on.
I'm a bit confused about when this Ratos De Porao album was released but this discogs entry says 1988 so...
1988 was the beginning of the end for Huey Lewis.
1989 as well
Discogs has them both down as '88.
Also 1989, and inelligible, sadly
I skimmed this last night. Is it too late to kick off a racism row on twitter about Lasagne.
Looks like vinyl was released in 88 and cd and cassette was 89.
Looks like the CD came out in 89. Album '88.
Love that billing!
I still think the Pup's album from '88 Vivisect VI is their masterpiece and it'll be somewhere in my top 20
One of the best albums by Zoviet*France came out in '88.
get your skateboard out.
Not his best, but still a great album. Title track, Charlotte Anne, 5 0'clock world etc.
First half of Fisherman's Blues by The Waterboys is fucking amazing.
see, this is why I dont quite trust discogs for some albums. They won't have the 'official' releasedate, they'll be going off things like chart entry and the copyright year on the label. But if something is released early the followig year, it is likely to have the previous year as the copyright, cos that's when it was phyiscally produced. Anything released the first week of Year 1 will have a Year 0 copyright.
Thus, the only two examples I can find from a medium sized search, The Barbara Dickson Songbook was released in the first week of January 1985, you could not have bought it before then, but discogs has it down as 1984. Similarly, Chas n Dave's masterpiece, Job Lot, available to buy, January 1983, but down as 1982 on discogs.
I need more convincing re Loop & S3
Playing With Fire has 1988 on the record label, but wikipedia mentions it being rleased early 1989, so you may be correct and it came out in 1989 despite having 1988 on the record.
Loop's Fade Out however looks like it was released (on vinyl) on three different labels in 1988 (Chapter 22, Rough Trade & Penguin) and has the CD and cassette coming out later in 1989. So fuck knows..
